As far as the Lakers, I was shocked with the Tony hire but I gave it a chance ONLY because I figured Nash would run things smoothly. One way to fix this is bite the bullet and make Eddie Jordan the HC and go back to the motion offense. I think you still trade Gasol because his D vs smaller quicker PF is awful. Try to get a bench with the Gasol trade(easier said than done, I know) and hopefully keep the 2014 plan. Of course if you do get a bench dump Morris, Ebanks, Sacre and Duhon or Blake.
dude, everybody keep repeating OFFENSE isn't the biggest problem, going back to that horrible O would only make things worse, these perimiter guys dont know how to move for crap with out the ball.
And what Phil was a defensive coach? All we need is a guy that's been a HC before and has a system, and of course practice D, have a system on D too. These guys are lost on D because they're not on the same page. You gotta coach on both sides and not just scream run, run and defense, defense like Tony does.
well going back to that bad offense isn't gona help matters any thats for sure.
It amazes me that people actually think one is separate from the other .... IT'S NOT!
Your offense can have major consequences on your defense and when you turn over the ball the way the Lakers do on OFFENSE, or they take quick perimeter shots that lead to long rebounds...all leading to easy transition hoops from an imbalanced floor than yes you do have an OFFENSIVE issue that is seriously handicapping an already average at best defense.
Their OFFENSE drives them right into their weaknesses at the quickest pace possible....... the OFFENSE is a huge issue right now in that manner.
