Webber does slow us down a bit, but I think its just going to be the same this season. Vlade and Miller are both slower and the offense flows through the big men. So that means everyone has to wait for them to run up the court also. Our offense always goes through our big men, so why would it be any different going through webber? Miller was brought to sacto to backup vlade. The way he has been performing, he might even start over vlade and in the playoffs, we will have a solid 3 man rotation for the 4 and 5 positions with webber-divac-miller. If you ever notice, webber is an even better passer and although he takes mainly jumpshots, his fg% isn't exactly low. 49% career is pretty good.
But we do need him. Look at the dallas series in the playoffs. We dominated the first game with webber and then struggled when he got injured. The kings learn to play through injuries during the regular season. Last year we had a lot of injuries. The only healthy players were christie and vlade. But come playoff time, we need everyone at full strength even though its never happened. Mike Bibby was out for the first 29 games last season, but even then, we still started out with a 15-5 record. Does that mean we play better without Bibby? No.
Oh yea I would like to say that Mike Bibby starts over Bobby Jackson because he controls the ball better and also distributes the ball. B Jackson is the energy player off the bench and is more selfish, so he has the perfect role of coming off the bench. I think the lakers need an energy tyoe player coming off the bench also. Someone like chris anderson.
