The report tried to probe a bit, asking "Pick and roll? Dive?"
Howard was adamant. "On the block."
When asked to diagnose the problem with the offense, D'Antoni said, "Not enough pick and roll."
He has repeatedly said things along the lines of "straight post up plays are the least efficient plays in basketball."
So, in order for this team to be successful, who's right?
Should we be getting the ball to Dwight on the block or should we be working more PnR?
lol on the block? as in him dribbling twice in the post and getting stripped trying to do his one post move? and if theres tight defense on him, him missing the jump hook and not even hitting the rim?
ridiculous, of course he much better in the pick and roll, he just wants to be come a more respectable offensive player at the expensive of the team and team chemistry, and i dont care if kobes "pushing him" to be more talented and polished in the post. its not his game, and it never was. he is horrible in the post, all he needs to do is get those baby assists and get the easy dunk/layup and run the pick and roll and/or have him run and find him on the fast break.
if we seriously go to him in the post as our 1st or 2nd option, we have problems. our first option in the post should be gasol, i dont care how much u guys say "he'll get pushed around" gasol is just a much better, smarter, and polished player in the post.
i mean oh my god, how hard is it for dwight to pump or fake on his post moves? he constantly just posts and spin. the same damn post move he did in orlando. my god if i was MDA, and he didnt runt he pick and roll id take him out of the game. i dont care if hes a superstar, if he truly is one he should know his strenghts and weaknesses.
this guy is never going to be great in the post. its just not him and with all the years in the league already, he should've been better already.
