How are you guys blaming tonight's offense on D'Antoni when dudes like Jamison and Meeks were missing WIDE OPEN shots?
Weren't you against this hire, B? The thing I can't stand about this offense is that we don't have the consistent shooters to make it work. Essentially our game plan is we either live or die by the jumper. In Dallas, we made them at a high clip and tonight...well, we died.
How management doesn't know their own personnel is mind-boggling. Kobe is shooting well right now, but percentages will always find a way back into the equation. His shooting will eventually come down to his career average. Metta and Jamison aren't really consistent shooters and just look at the Dallas game and tonight's game to understand that this isn't an anomaly...this will be how it goes from here on out. This team will be extremely polar. If we had the right personnel then living by the jumper becomes more bearable, but with this team, forgetaboutit!
The thing I blame D'Antoni the most about is that most of our offense tonight did not look fluid and easy. You have Kobe sick and this essentially became Kobe ball. This is where D'Antoni should step in and you should see his offense at work the most...instead we get that mess. Essentially it becomes a game of probabilities....you shoot enough and you're hoping for 50%. If that is his "contribution" to the offense, then we're seriously in trouble. It seems like D'Antoni doesn't really bring anything to the table unless he has a skilled PG. So essentially the season is live or die on the wheel's of a 39 year old. Fantastic!
