DEFENSIVE PREDICTION: Defense is key for the Lakers
Posted September 30, 2008 - 07:24 PM
Lakers' coaches haven't been successful in instilling that defensive mindset into the team, given the fact that head coach Phil Jackson's claim to fame is his beloved powerful offensive arsenal in the triangle, and never did preach defense in his coaching career.
What you guys think?
How many PPG and FG% would the Lakers allow their opponents to muster?
For me, I predict a 91.7 and 42.4% . . . 3rd best in the league.
How about you!

United we stand. Divided we fall.

then top 5 because what most people dont realize about the bynum return is that fisher, kobe, and ariza's claim to fame defensively is herassing offensive players by getting up in their grill with bynum a elite shotblocker and gasol an above average shot blocker they will be able to do that with little consequence
now if our line-up is
top 10 because i think lamar plays solid defense but not pesky just safe and i think that this line-up would yeild a safer defense but with less potential
