hmm... i dunno guys. i think horry just has to step up, hes just cold, but i think that last shot will motivate him to do better. he will break through. as for slava, he did great last night, one of the key players to the "comeback" but i dunno man... when i watch him play, he's inconsistent. also, when i watched him in the regular season, he goes through emotions or something and he is totally out of control. if he is calm, maybe he'll produce. just calm down slava. maybe he just felt it, and who knows, he mite not feel it. however i do think he should get some minutes when horry's out. yea horry will break out, he just needs to find his stroke and fAST.
thing on shaq, wat i think the lakers need to do for shaq is give him the ball more~!!! he needs to get the ball. he didnt take a lot of shots in game 5. give the most dominant player the ball!!
as for phil jackson, guys, the coach knows wat he's doing. just let him do his stuff. yea, maybe u guys dont wanna hear the krap stu says, but lets just say he's wrong. wat other explanation are there that phil just lets his team run it, not interfering w/ a timeout? surely, u dont think he's actually just sitting down just kuz he doenst kno wat to do???
ok, so in conclusion i think this is wat needs to happen for the lakers to win
1. give shaq the ball. he's gonna play aggressively
2. sure, let slava and pargo get some minute, but not MAJOR mintues. unless theyre hot, horry and fish should stay in the game. they will break through
3. fisher needs to shoot more threes, not kobe. kobe kan shoot it, but fisher should kuz he has a better percentage.
4. fisher postup on parker
5. run the offense
7. give shaq the ball
i kno im gonna get ripped for this reply, but this is how i feel
