Re: COACH - ESPN: Lakers to reach out to Phil & D'Antoni (p.7)

Postby Weezy on Fri Nov 09, 2012 10:47 pm

I just think Nash would be less off the ball, have the ball in his hands way more in the Triangle. It's not ideal for his game, but at his age do we really want him running the entire offense by himself every single game anyway? Personally, I don't, there are plenty of guys that can make plays on this team. This "Princeton" or whatever it is we tried to run was ugly as hell, the Triangle is not, Nash would always bring the ball up, he would get a lot of open shots, and he would still run pick n rolls. He wouldn't have to do it all himself though, Kobe would set up on the block, so would Dwight and Pau, we'd run plays through different guys all game long, that's what I liked about the Triangle, it put guys in position to succeed. I don't see it so much as Nash fitting into the Triangle, as it just being a good fit for the overall team, I really don't think Nash's game would suffer much if at all.

Not only that, but he had to carry us through the Hornets series on that one leg and was pretty much spent by the Dallas series. Also Pau was our 2nd best player on that team and his game was GONE.


Yep. Let's give the Mavs some credit too here. I haven't seen a team that hot in a long time, they were scorching hot.


Let's not forget they were the eventual champions too, beating the prematurely crowned Heat team.

The bolded part is seriously EXACTLY the same thing I've been saying ever since we said we were running the Princeton. What we were actually running WASN'T the Princeton so much, but the principle of having a system that gives us an opportunity to give Nash responsibility, but rest him as well...

I've been saying that for a month or two now and I've been getting flamed for it. :man10: I don't disagree with anything you're saying, I'm just bitter about it.

Just the first meeting guys. There's 3 more at least.

But I can't say I'm not excited either. This is a match made in heaven.

Regarding Phil, it was suggested to me that "his mouth's watering" at the idea of coaching these Lakers.

What I saw with the "Princeton" though was Nash turned into Ray Allen/Rip Hamilton. Bring the ball upcourt, throw it to a big at the 3 point line, run around the court, run through screens down low and come out on the other side, possibly open, but rarely open, trying to get the ball back. That's not the Triangle, Nash in the Triangle would bring it up, maybe pass to a big in the post or Kobe at the top, get the ball back a lot and either throw it back or go elsewhere, but he wouldn't be running around the court like Rip Hamilton trying to get open for catch and shoot baskets, he'd be able to actually stay in place more and get that rest you speak of. The principal of this system might have supposed to give Nash responsibility and rest, but in reality it didn't, it reduced him for Ramon Sessions and was a joke. I don't even think we're disagreeing here to be honest and I don't remember you getting flamed other than maybe for supporting Brown. :mhihi:

In the end it simply boils down to this for me, we HAVE a good roster, they clearly can play well and win, we just need a guy to come in and bring the confidence, play the right rotations, put them in position to succeed, get the most out of his players, to me that is Phil no question. Tonight we beat a crappy team, yes, but they did it playing basically playground ball with the weight of Brown lifted, to me you put a guy as respected and good at coaching as Phil in there and the team will turn around pretty quick, the man just knows how to build champions.

So yeah...based on tonight I still don't like D'Antoni as our head coach

Howard is our only true finisher on the break. Everyone else is either too unathletic or has terrible ball handling skills.

Even ignoring the rest of the roster, Nash will be 39 this season. He doesn't want to be in charge of running every time down the floor.

It's looking hopeful that Phil is our guy, but yeah it's still not clear how Nash would fit into his system. I want Nash to be free to do his thing, but I also don't think it would be a good idea to go full blown D'Antoni style.
