Lots of overly optimistic posts here. There's no way the Lakers as constructed right now are going to get deep. They need a ballhandler, I don't care if he's a PG, SG, or SF or combo guard. Somebody needs to be able to handle the rock and create a shot. Morris looks like he can, but he's too young. Everybody else is terrible at it. Awful. Embarrassingly bad at it. And if we're just going to expect Kobe to do it all, it won't win a 7 game series. Especially when we aren't dead eye shooters from 3 land or midrange for that matter.

How many games did we lost before the 4th quarter ? none

Last year we had several games where we couldn't even compete in the 4th. I've to admit we're not great but there's much more care than last year. Do you remember our 2nd quarters last year ?

The heavy schedule didn't give this team any time to practice. I expect us to find our offensive rythm after the AS break.
Offseason's finished for my long sleeping nights. NBA is back !!

That was crazy and I was surprised by his reaction. I loved it.

Yet as I watched him Monday, I could not help think how little it mattered and how right he is. He is not fading into the shadows. He does not know how to go out that way.[.]

^ Count me in there.

But his rotations still aren't great.

I would try not to play McRoberts with Drew ever. They're redundant rebounding the ball. They ended up fighting over a few last night resulting in neither of them getting it. The rotation should be McRoberts with Pau and Murphy with Bynum.

Murphy spaces the floor so if they want to double Drew, they have to go across the court. Bynum gets his space to operate down low.

McRoberts is a rebounder and hustler, something Pau simply isn't. Pau can do whatever he needs to do, whether it's down low or mid-range, and McRoberts can handle the rebounding duties.

He'll get blamed for everything as soon as they go on a losing streak.

A total disaster against Miami and Orlando. Actually against Miami I saw some good intentions in the first half, a fluid offense with everyone moving and a tough inside defense, yet perimeter defense was non existing at all, Miami got a ridiculous 70-80% from the 3 line in that first half. Against Orlando everything was ugly, no offense at all, and worse defense, it just didn't look as a profesional team.

I guess Mike Brown when signing expected to manage an already great team with possible reinforcements, but without Odom and some minor acquisitions, this team looks now a shadow of itself.

I'm hearing a bit less about his personnel decisions. Does that mean he has workd out the issues and it's okay now? So, that's good. The new biggest complaint is that we have no offensive scheme. It's a problem that isn't new, but it's newly the biggest. I agree that we haven't had much time to work on the O, but I'm not even seeing a semblance of a scheme. I think we were very effective when Kobe was creating last game. Anyone else seeing anything differently?

I think there is an "offensive scheme"...is supposed to be called the "Strong Corner Offense".

Only thing is, what little of it has been taught, fits our personnel worse than OJ's glove. When it fails to produce, they basically revert to the "Give Kobe the ball and see what he can do" Offense.

Basically they should call it the "Fixing What Ain't Broke" Offense or the "Let's Reinvent the Wheel" Offense.

Indeed. The Strong Corner seems to need a few things:

1. Spacing
2. Hustling bigs
3. Shooters

Relying on our bigs to be that line of defense that they're doing so well seems to really put them in a tough spot. It's not easy for anyone to sprint (repeatedly) baseline to baseline, much less a big.

You know there's some personnel issues for our offense when we are using Pau as a jumpshooter to space the floor for Drew.....YIKES!

Teams don't even bother to guard Fish anymore. As such, everytime Kobe or Drew touch the ball....a cascade of double teams arrive.

Can't imagine how this went....

Kobe - If only you could pass it to yourself more often, my offense would look a whole lot better.
Bynum - 50% is a good FG percentage, not free throw percentage.
Pau - Stop screaming when you shoot, I can't hear myself think.
Barnes - Here's a list of players I hate....take em out

Murphy - It's a good thing your jumpshot looks better than your face.

We were on 17-8 run and had a 73-68 lead with 3:30 left in the third . What does Mike Brown can do for you ? Take both Pau and Bynum out , put the whole second unit with Kobe on the floor and let Indiana close the quarter on a 9-5 run.

I thought these rotations were a huge momentum killer

I know the season is young but our current complaints of Brown sound EXACTLY the same as Clev fans especially his last year when they had Shaq/Jamison.

So basically, Mike Brown should be a co- head coach. He can run the defense, and then we can get a coach who knows how to run a god damn offense.
Every time I begin to ask, "Is he really as great as I think he is?" ...He proves that he is.
Every time I begin to wonder...He proves it...That is why I won't lose hope in him.
You know who I am talking about.

How about we actually give him personnel to run an offense with? Fisher is 37 years old, Barnes has always had shaky 3% shooting, Blake is our best 3 point shotoer and he's out, Kapono is a bench player who couldn't even get mins in Philly, Murphy is struggling I think he'll come around, Ebanks, Morris and G-lock dont have experience. You have so many holes in your personnel with the reality of not being capable of being productive, so how do you expect an offense to do well? Bynum is not some dominant player, he's good. (Thats like saying Monta Ellis is the 3rd best SG in the league...its true but the dropoff from Kobe/Wade to Monta is significant and thats the same gap between DH and Bynum).

Pau and Kobe look like the best is behind them even though they're still elite at their positions. You need more firepower. Nuff said. The lowest PPG average of our team since we moved to Los Angeles is 98 and we're averaging 92 points per game right now with Kobe averaging 30 a game for the 1st time in 5 years. Give our big 3 some talent to work with please, even JVG emphasized this again and again during the ORL/LAL game. Outside of Kobe you dont have alternative shot creators/play makers on the team so how do you expect them to have a crisp offense?
