They all have their best player at PG or SF/PF to take advantage of our weak points and then they're best defender is a SG/F who is assigned to Kobe and only job is to put ALL their energy into guarding him and just spot up for open 3's bc of Kobe's sagging D. All that and they all have a SG who can shoot very well to come off the bench and spark their team when Kobe isn't playing and go against a backup SG.
Best Player - T. Parker (PG)
Best Defender & 3PT Shooter - D. Green (SG)
Spark of Bench & 3 PT Shooter - M. Ginobili (SG)
Best Player - R. Westbrook (PG) & K. Durant (SF)
Best Defender & 3PT Shooter - T. Stefolosha (SG)
Spark of Bench & 3 PT Shooter - K. Martin (SG)
Best Player - CP3 (PG) & B. Griffin (PF)
Best Defender - G. Hill (F) [but Crawford plays the most and defends very well with his length]
Spark of Bench & 3 PT Shooter - J. Crawford (SG)
Best Player - Melo (F)
Best Defender & 3PT Shooter - J. Kidd (SG)
Spark of Bench & 3 PT Shooter - JR Smith (SG)
Every good team is set up to beat us with defending Kobe and having their PG & Foward own our lesser talented starters as well as a quick SG who can score very well off the bench to own our backup SG
Ok that is some real Laker narcissism right there! Haha.
