Doesn't dawn on you that Kobe and Nash finally had to lay the wood in the team meeting and then in telling Dan that they were going to play to their strengths from now on. 3-4 guys posting up including Kobe. Inside out and people cutting. As opposed to Kobe's fault when Dan's stupid use of our squad was camping 4 guys outside chucking and standing around watching each other go one on one and one on two. Not just Kobe. It was like they would take turns. Due to the stupid effing system being run. Well guess what...."selfish" effing Kobe is the reason now it's fixed.
sssshhhhhhhhhh ...... keep it down...... they don't like it around here when you make actual sense.....
This society these days is all about blaming what's easiest instead of actually understanding what was wrong in the first place ...
The change has everything to so with the philosophy shift within the offense but hey let the mental midgets actually believe it's just the whims of a single player out there.... keeps them happy and pacified

Even though as of late they have run less offensive sets with the corner 3 split concept but they are still running it at times............ this is the biggest flaw in MDAs system when you consider responsible floor balance. When they stop doing it COMPLETELY, which won;t happen with genius as coach, the PPG against will drop.......... continue to do it and it all depends on the jump shooters hitting shots from that very flawed floor spacing on how many transition opportunities and cheap looks they give up per night. The 2 games before last night I saw very little of it, against the Hornets they were back at it again a bit.... MDA just has to stop that bull s**t IMO and the defense will settle into being better and consistent.
It's ok to start an offensive set with the split corner concept but once the shot goes up you can't still be in that spacing .... PERIOD! That is what the MDA supporters just don't get for some reason and that is what is different from other coaches that are running smaller lineups and playing up tempo ball...... that is MDA being super aggressive one way creating complete liabilities the other way with little regard..... that's what makes him the leader and president of the mental midget club.
