So many problems with this team:
-The uptempo offense only works when you have athletes who can run the floor and shoot. Meeks is horrible when he has to put the ball on the floor and compounding that problem is the fact that he was 1-7 from 3pt today. Same goes for Metta.
-Horrible defense. We have players not closing in on their man (specifically Kobe) and atrocious transition defense (against the freakin' Clippers of all teams). I swear god, I can't count how many times where I saw a Clipper player shoot the ball going unchallenged. If Dwight Howard wasn't on this team, I don't even want to know how much worse our defense would be.
-No passion, no energy: this is specifically directed at Pau, but goes for pretty much the entire team. It's so sad watching a player who was the 2nd option during our championship run 2-3 years ago become irrelevant.
-No production from the reserves. Hill is our only decent player coming off of the bench and now he's injured.
A deep man, believes that the evil eye can wither, that the heart's blessing can heal, and that love can overcome all odds.
