He's coming in to help implement the Princeton offense.

I guess we're going to be home to two underwhelming head coaches. Time to bring in Pringles while we're at it.

Eddie Jordan was the offensive coordinator for Byron Scott on the early 2000 Nets with Jason Kidd.

Doesn't Kobe know the Princeton Offense since he teaches the kids that offense at his basketball camp?

He'll fit fine. As long as he comes in here and limits Brown's involvement with the offense he'll be considered a success.

Also, I might be mistaken but didn't the New Jersey Teams he was the assistant coach for reach the Eastern Conference Finals in back to back years? I might be mistaken...

So what the hell is kuesters role here. I thought he was te offensive guy. We have a coaching staff filled of failed head coaches that we're good assistants

Nash, Kobe, and pau are perfect Princeton offense fits. Though admittedly I don't know much about it other than its better than isolation offense

Doesn't he have a reputation for being a "in your face" type coach? Not saying that's a bad thing, but for a veteran team like ours, I doubt it flies. Of course, most assistants are less vocal.

It just means posting and reposting with the occasional center coming up to the free throw line and handing the ball off. Not worried in the slightest.

Princeton Offense For the Lakers?

Image

Last season the Los Angeles Lakers’ coaching staff was anything but a cohesive unit, and the fact that they were trying to install an entirely new offense on the fly didn’t help matters. Lakers head coach Mike Brown’s efforts to teach his team a new offensive game plan was hindered by the lockout-shortened season, and it was threatened to be hindered even further by the departures of assistants Ettore Messina and Quin Snyder, who received coaching offers from CSKA Moscow that were too lucrative to pass on.

According to reports, Brown has found a solution to his offensive problem, as the Lakers will soon add former Washington Wizards and Philadelphia 76ers head coach Eddie Jordan to his staff.

Jordan is a disciple of the Princeton offense, which was developed and perfected at Princeton University by coach Pete Carril. Carril was a long-time assistant coach for the Sacramento Kings and helped Rick Adelman translate the offense to the NBA.

The Princeton offense revolves around constant motion, passing and backdoor cuts, all of which should be familiar to fans of the Kings, Houston Rockets, and now the Minnesota Timberwolves, as Adelman has enjoyed a great deal of success with the offense. Eddie Jordan had less success, though that was due largely to the unreasonable number of injuries he had to deal with as a head coach. Mike Brown believes Jordan is the perfect person to help him implement the same offense in Los Angeles.

HOOPSWORLD’s Eric Pincus says the Lakers have already put a lot of time and thought into how they can go about implementing the Princeton offense, and adding Jordan to the coaching staff may be the final piece to that puzzle.

Last year we saw Drew featured in the post more than anytime in his career. Sure, he struggled with double teams more times than not, but a big factor was our lack of shooters for spacing and no structured offense around the post. People stood around and there was no movement whatsoever. Even Dwight Howard struggles in the post with a team that was built for him.

Well they even were in the NBA Finals back to back. Can't be that bad.

Adelman had an entire team, including the center, in Sac that could pass well.

Jason Kidd ran the offense to the finals twice in NJ so an all-time great can certainly change the results.

This. No, a great PG isn't necessarily needed but he could help for damn sure. You just need solid passers. I think this team could really benefit from the system. We've got good passers from 1-6 and from 7 on we can run some pick and roll.

Got ya... I'm not too familiar with what the princeton offense is all about.

I guess Nash and Brown had a convo before he signed so they must have discussed this to some extent.
