It is normal for the fans to be worried. Or just disappointed. So, I'll have to disagree with Kobe here. At least partially.
Maybe they know what they are doing; they can see their own progress in practice etc. -- but we don't see it, so we're kind of left in dark. And that obviously results in frustration.
Additionally, while he does make some good points, I think it would be more logical to use some easier plays such as devastating P&R to build the lead, and mix it with some Princeton as well, so they can become more comfortable in real game situation. Then, continue working on the new offense in practice, and once you think it's truly ready, show other teams what you got and destroy them in the process. Also, tell the bench to use the Princeton as much as possible, and mix it up with some iso plays for Jamison and P&R for Pau and Dwight if they are playing with the bench. I am one of the first people here to say -- I understand the need for the system; our bench benefits from it, and Nash ball is not enough come playoffs (or if he, god forbid, goes down). I get it.
But here is something Kobe does not address: their horrendous communication on defense, which results in us losing games. Yes, they are scoring on the offensive end. Efficiently, as he says. Why? Because, for god's sake, you have 2 of the top 5 players in the league on the floor, an all-star 1 & 4 etc. Of course you can score (on talent alone). But this is not enough since your defense is atrocious (Metta and Dwight don't communicate well, Pau doesn't have a clue what's happening, and you, Kobe, are also to blame for your 'lazy, gambling D' approach (I know you're reading this
). Sorry, but it's true. This needs to be fixed, and I know it will be, but let's not pretend we're fools who can't see it.
Additionally, Brown's rotations... what's up with that? One game, play Meeks (who is a good player), and in the other game, take away his minutes so you can play Ebanks out of position. Also, Jamison. What's up with that? Mix 2 starters with the bench and let the guys play their natural roles at SG, SF and PF.
Basically, he makes some good points, but conveniently skips these other issues. Shut up Kobe, and put a good product on the floor.
