The two are not mutually exclusive parts of the game. The attempts at being an uptempo team that takes any open shot including a lot of long jumpers leads to more long misses and players on the offensive end being out of position for transition defense. Long shots that miss tend to lead to more fast break opportunities for the opposition as well..... More possessions means more chances for this to happen.

I can agree to a certain extent that a ball dominant, pick and roll point guard isn't the best fit for a Kobe led team(this has been my premiss since we were going to acquire CP3 who is even more ball dominant) but I can also see a connection between the use of the personnel, lack of appropriate personnel and the system we use on offense contributing to our issues on the other end of the floor.

Of the players that were available Nash was by far the best....... I'd love Rondo for this team but he wasn't or isn't available so the team got a declining but still very good point guard.... something we haven't seen on this team since Van Exel was shipped out......

This thread is ridiculous to me. Kobe + Nash offensively isn't even close to being the problem. Defense is our problem. It's simple.

um... NO.

Right now our problems are:

Injuries.
Defense.
help defense.
missing open shots.
For what it's worth, the Lakers also clinched the Pacific Division, an achievement Bryant dismissed by saying "We don't hang divisions." No, only the big NBA championship banners are considered wall-worthy for the Lakers.

So, no, can't agree with your premise.


This.

We have a HC who has a rep for ignoring defense.

How long before management steps in, pre-empts Pringles, and hires a legit defensive coach?
