Common theme between both Nash's success in Phoenix and D12's success in Orlando was that they had shooters at virtually every position.
Kind of like what the Heat have and what the Mavs had in their championship year. A bunch of shooters leaves the lane free to roll, on our team no one is a dead eye shooter, so teams let us shoot and take away the higher percentage shots.
If you want Nash or D12 to dominate the pick and roll, need to put some guys on the floor that can space the floor. Or at the very least guys like Clark and Hill that can move off the ball. Everyone else besides them are statues so it's easy to help off when you know their man isn't going to move.
it would help if this simpleton offense actually had guys moving off ball outside of setting a screen or trying to rush to rebounding position from 17 feet away from the basket......
Teams that rely on the jump shot is not a great philosophy for winning consistently at the highest level..... it basically sets up a few one hit wonders.
Basketball 101 since the prehistoric times.......... you defend inside out....why? the percentages......
that has not changed even though many fantasy geeks are trying to sell it otherwise.
It is also why mr Genius has won NOTHING and will continue to win NOTHING. His philosophy flies in the face of basketball common sense.
