Texas Lakers Fan wrote:I find it comical how people think having Phil would make that much of a difference. Do people conviently just forgetPhil last's team? Very similar to this team. Just old, slow, and not good enough. Some of us including myself just vastly overrated the talent on the team. Chuck said it best last night they just aren't that talented. Kobe and Dwight are a two man wrecking crew essentially. No one else is consistent. Phil wouldn't have done any better than MDT has.
so, you think we're going to run and gun all day, and leave basiaclly pau gasol useless and not utilize some sort of half court double post offense?
you think hes going to run gasol, ron, and kobe to the ground with the huge minutes in the regular season at their age?
no one else is consistent? what jamison is basically regulated to the perimeter, how many times does he get to post? basically as much as gasol has. how consistent are you going to be being regulated on the perimeter?
we didnt overrate the talent on the team. we know what we get with meeks he has done fine, much better than what? blake being our back up sg?
duhon has over achieved, hill has done fine we got what we expect from him.
morris and ebanks was a mistake, and no way a phil ran team would of kept those two. only mike dumb brown would cut CDR, DJO, and Glock over these guys.
phils last team? did we have this record? did we go virtually 0-12 till our first win (including the preseason), would he play players out of their position and their comfort zone?
im not sure how you compare this team being utterly misused that has a horrible, horrible record, compared to phils last team that hardly had this horrible of a record.
we didnt do good back then, but not close to how bad we're doing now.
and now your listening to advices from chuck? the one that said kobe has lost a step since 06? the one that said in every year that we won, that we werent good enough? when he said lebron was the best in those years and he said they were going to take it all?
