Well, I can just hope, for your sake, that you hold yourself to the same high standards.

Also, you contradict yourself. You can't say - "coaches are not responsible and it's players' responsibility to practice" and then go and say that "they practice it wrong".

Well, guess what - that's what coaches and assistant coaches and shooting coaches are for - show how to practice right. Yet it doesn't happen. I am also positive that if 20 minutes a night (I wonder, you keep pulling numbers out of somewhere - is there some sort of research?) were enough, most would be shooting those 80% you want them to.

But alas, it doesn't happen. But that is probably some sort of excuse, I am guessing.

Easy.

Start Dwight &Jamison. Bring in Pau (at the 5) and Hill (or leave Jamo in). End game situations where the game is tight, swoop Dwight for Pau at the 5 again. Choose your 4 depending on matchups.

Solves two problems. Pau in the post, and limiting Hack-A-Dwight opportunities.

Come on Pringles. Don't wait for Nash's return before adjusting. He ain't no miracle--though he made you look like a great coach.

There is no other way than what we saw tonight, he has to just make them. If they're fouling him and he's missing 2, then making 1 out of 2 for a few times, they'll keep doing it if they keep scoring because they're trading 1 point for 2. IF he makes 2 in a row a few times, they'll stop.

Hack a Dwight or Hack a Howard doesn't work for me aesthetically. Hack a Shaq worked because of the rhyme.

I'm going with Smite a Dwight from now on.

I honestly do believe that if dwight can be a 65-75% ft shooter, he could be the greatest center to ever play from then on. He would just be UNSTOPPABLE. He won't be stopped offensively, and defensively he's already 1 or 1A. His dominance would be unmatched. Kobe brought this up recently in an interview. If I was him and thought about this, that would seriously motivate me to get better. Because its the truth.

This could work but I think the biggest reason for not doing this is the Lakers want Dwight to be happy and to resign so they don't. However, this has never been seen before but has been available, just suprised no coach has done it. Often when teams go to the hack a shaq, howard, or whoever, the other team has a player on the floor that can't shoot free throws either. Why not hack that person every time they do it to howard, then it becomes a free throw shooting contest between two bad free throw shooters.

Real easy

Coach has to have the testicular fortitude to sit his behind in the 4th once they are in the bonus until the 2 minute mark.

They have another 7 footer with a spread 4 to put out there during those moments where teams try and deploy it.

Until Howard can hit FTs you continue to do this.........................

simple.

This question is just another example of MDA being no better than Brown as as coach overall................ he rides the coat tails of superstars and that's about it. take away Nash from his Suns days or LBJ from his Olympic team and you are left with a simpleton for an "offensive genius" with an abysmal record as a coach in North America .

It doesn't matter............... write a book or have a 3 month dialog on it..... doesn't change the simplicity of the right answer.

The fact that people are trying to skate around the simple answer is comical.

This is the only way we're going to get around "hack-a-Dwight"
There are two teams that play in the Staples Center:
the LA Lakers and NBA Clippers.
