He's so bad that Popovich game plans around Kobe's god-awful off-ball D.

That's the area of Kobe's game that definitely deserves criticism.

Yeah.. like ur transition D, ur PnR D is good.. He's got no idea about how to teach players to defend, D'Antoni SUCK.
Our offense is trash too, if you take nash out of the team, we can't do anything.

That's funny. Despite the sarcasm though, we probably would look less lost on defense if we had a coach that taught it and practiced it. Still, no excuse for how bad Kobe was on D multiple possessions in a row.

I wonder if any of the following would help on D:

1. Have a scheme
2. Practice D
3. Bench players for not playing D

You know, things a coach might do.

I mean we have had issues with energy and effort especially on the defensive end but our leaders (coach and captain) are among the worst offenders!

I'd love it if DA would bench Kobe for not playing defense. Offensively, he's been good all year, but he plays no defense. Hasn't for years. And we don't have a Phil Jackson that will convince a team to play great defense despite Kobe.

We have no interior defense whatsoever. What do you expect? The defense has been horrible dating back to the Mike Brown.

lets be honest....MDA dont care about D, its not his style and we need to forget about that one.....until he is our coach there is no point talking about that, just no point....nothing will change....we can speak here what ever we want but its just simple as that....NO DEFENSE

Can we get some hard evidence that D'Antoni doesn't care about defense and doesn't have the players practice it? Do you guys seriously think that after the horrendous showings on D we've had over the past month that D'Antoni is just sitting there saying to everyone, "I don't care about it" and the players are accepting it? I have a hard time believing this is what you draw up in your heads.

He also has benched Jamison for his abysmal defense as well.

i understand the sarcasm, but mike dan tony has done nothing to show he's a good coach in any way.


I agree.
To be fair, I love Kobe. He's one of all-time greatests for sure and that's old news.
That said, I have to partially agree with Magic's complains. At least this season, he's not behaving like a true leader for this team.

C'mon, what kind of defense is he playing tonight? That's unacceptable. Even for a basketball legend like Kobe.

Yes. Listen to every interview with him. Listen to former players. Look at this season's performance.

Kobe's lack of defense cannot be a physical limitation. i mean the guy is putting up 30ppg. clearly he has the energy to play some average defense. hes playing none. i wonder, would we be better if he scored 8 ppg less or so but played his traditional level of defense?
