I'm not saying he'd be the #1 option.. I'm saying we'd be counting on him to make the 3rd biggest impact behind Kobe & Dwight. Phil loves posting up & wants PG's spotting up for 3's.. Nash would only get to play his game on the plays where we freelance. Or at least what's left of them after the Kobe iso's.borri wrote:lakersin4 wrote:borri wrote:While Nash is ideal for Antoni's offense, he would have also been ideal for the TRI under PJ.

Nothing is gonna change my mind that not hiring PJ was the wrong thing to do. We have the IDEAL personnel for the TRI. D12 would flourish under the "Shaq TRI". Nash would flourish as a shooter. Hill would get ALOT more PT. etc.
With Phil, we would have depended on Pau much more than Nash. If we're going to depend on either of them to play at a level that wins us games, I think we made the right hire.
How so? The focus will be on Kobe and D12. Stop thinking about the Lakers pre- good Bynum. That was the last time Pau was any good. PJ gradually went away from Pau and allowed the offense to focus more on Bynum.
With D12 here, no way in hell PJ would put the focus on Pau when we still have Kobe AND D12. I wouldn't be surprised one bit if PJ started Hill and made Pau the 6th man.
