Go pull up some youtube videos of the Sacramento KIngs teams of the late 90's-early 00's. They would have won at least one title if they could have got past the Shaq-Kobe Lakers. In fact, they did have the Lakers on the ropes in the 2002 WCF and only a Horry 3 in Game 4 and then a team choke job in Game 7 kept them out of the Finals. Those teams were coached by Adelman, but Carril was one of his assistants and they ran the Princeton offense with Divac and Webber playing the post positions. What I recall is that neither Divac nor Webber were 3pt shooters on any regular basis, but they were both excellent passers no matter where they were on the court and as a result, the Kings were dang hard to stop unless they were shooting themselves out of a game.
So taking a page from those Kings teams, I don't think Gasol needs to go out to the 3pt line but we should see a lot of him operating from the high post with cutters taking his passes. Also the offense does allow for pick and roll plays: the Kings used a lot of those with Bibby up high and either Webber or Divac setting picks. So we should see a lot of Nash-oriented pick and roll plays that are designed to both take advantage of Nash's p-n-r skills and also get Kobe and MWP easy shots from the weak side when the defense overplays the pick and roll.
I'm counting on Nash and Jordan overriding Brown as necessary. Kobe will have their backs.
