Just saw this on NBA.com, those P&R pockets are going to be deadly. :jam2:

Exactly. This is what I've been talking about. The Princeton is a fine offensive system. I don't have any problem with it per se. But it was brought in to fix problems we had last year. That's ok as the backdrop of something we'll have for some sets, especially for the bench who will need it.

However, when you bring in THE BEST pick and roll PG in the league and one of the best in history, and then you pair him with not one but basically the TWO BEST pick and roll Bigs (and pick and pop with Gasol) - well, we better see a very STEADY diet of pick and roll. I'm talking about this should be play number one, period. This is not to take away from Kobe and what he does, but you absolutely have to go to your strengths a lot. And this is the biggest strength we have. We don't have to recreate the wheel when we have players of this offensive talent, skill and know how. Just let Nash run the show.

The pick and roll and pick and pop with Nash and Howard and Nash and Gasol should be one of the deadliest things we've seen on the Lakers. I seriously don't have a clue how any team or personnel is going to stop that. If a big is strong enough to deal with Dwight, most likely he won't be quick enough to handle him on the move. Basically the only way to try and put a damper on it is to keep sending Howard to the line, but then you're over the foul limit and you can go to Pau, or Kobe and make them pay and pay.

Just look at what Nash was able to do with Gortat or Amare. Now imagine Dwight Freaking Howard setting that pick and rolling. Oh my. Or Gasol for that matter.

^ Thankfully Mike Brown agrees with you. He's stated that Nash will have the opportunity to use the Pick & Roll every single time down the floor, if he so chooses. If not then there's the Princeton offense to use.

I should get an assist for that. It's an intentional pass to oneself, so it's an assist. That way people can't say all I do is shoot.

Yeah... The few times Kobe initiated the P&R with Gasol last year, it was deadly. Not sure why they went away from it as the season went on... This will be a whole other level.

Nash isn't a young pup. The Princeton offense is for when Nash is on the bench.
