Kaman, Horford, Jefferson........

Horford healthy is all-star caliber. Jefferson doesn't play much D but he has a great offensive arsenal. I'd say Jordan is better (production-wise) than Kaman though, just on athleticism he makes more of a difference

guards like Bledsoe always kill the lakers. the lakers just don't have any speed or athletic ability at PG, haven't since farmar.


nice finish of the half. embarrassing. Nash looks like garbage against younger speedier pgs. great.

Well.... bledsoe has picked Nash at least 3 times so far. Hill is hustling but he's also pretty rusty and has made a few mistakes. Meeks has shot it nicely...... and Pau has been Casper yet again when's he the focus of the offense.....

Blake played fairly well actually.....

The confusion on offense is biggest culprit...it's leading to turnovers and easy points for the Clippers.

pau has to be more aggressive. there will be games when Kobe is out or Dwight and hes gotta step up. so far I don't think that's gunna happen. even with nash they're not running pick and roll with him. Meeks doing okay I guess.

would like to see DJO and Glock though. DJO on Bledsoe would be cool

Pau not being able to catch that pass just pretty much sums up his essence during this pre-season. Hopefully once the regular season starts he'll wake the F up

If he's healthy I think Kaman will have a good season..... better than Jordan.... maybe not as "highlight" worthy but better overall.

I thought that Glock or DJO would backup Meeks this game. Prob would have hustled on D bc they got something to prove for their job

I've been saying it all pre season.

You must be mental to chose the most complex offence there is and try to apply it to a team that has a bunch of new key players and has only 2 years to get results.

To me, it's the dumbest thing to do.

Just stick to a regular offence that most of the players can understand faster.

Dam Mike Brown.

Why Gasol standing far away from rim and beyond the 18ft? run some pick and roll with Nash please :disagree:

Maybe. I like Kaman, I like bigs that can shoot and actually develop fundamentals. I was just saying Jordan could make more of a difference production-wise with his athleticism -> rebounds, blocks, paint presence..
Your prediction isn't far fetched though.

We have the best PnR PG in Nash here and no one wants to run some PnR with him, all our big especially Gasol just want to stand and settling for jump shot.

On a night where he's supposed to be our anchor on offense, Pau's looked (as Roos says) like Casper and he's got 2 points on 1/5 from the field. Same ish :bang:

This whole "Nash will revitalize Gasol" thing is BS. Gasol has been garbage the last two post seasons, against guys like Landry, Manimal (a rookie), and even Dirk (who can't bang down low). We are seeing the same passiveness, indecision, and butter fingers. So wish they traded him for pieces or Smith.

mike brown needs to understand that sometimes Princeton isn't the offense we need to run. sometimes simple PnR will do. I think we should use all of our players strengths and not runnin pnr with Nash I just stupid. I understand they're trying to learn the new offense and stuff but Kobe and Dwight are not playing...so why not use pick and roll bc the Princeton isn't gunna work without Kobe and Dwight.

gotta have more than 1 option. opponents won't know what to do if we have pnr simple standard offense one trip down then Princeton the next. or like try pnr first then Princeton ball movement

I know it is preseason and such, but man this does not look promising at all. Nash has been struggling to say the least and we have shown absolutely no improvement on offense in the past 7 games, if anything we have gotten worse.
