Why isn't our offense centered around pick and roll


Blame John Kuester for that one! He is the offensive coordinator for the Lakers.

Integrating a rookie 4 games into arguably the most threatening opponent in the NBA. [expletive]ing genius.

No no, don't misinterpret what I'm saying. I agree with you actually that NOW, it's obviously WAY too late and kinda risky to suddenly throw him out there with so much pressure and so much potential rust on his part for such a big stage, but the real point is Mike Brown should've played him in the rotation a long time ago and even had some chances in the Denver series at times again, but obviously didn't want to whatsoever.

and none means any if we loose the series so lets take one game at a time.

and i think its a bull[expletive] to blame an asisstant for offensive part of the game. if youre the head coach you coordinate everything simple as that. you have those assistants to help you out not coordinate the team. if he says ramon has the ultra green light and yet he seems to have only a couple of pick&rolls, its unacceptable.

I understand what you are trying to say. But, it will be risky for a coach to play a rookie in the playoffs. Unless of course if that rookie is potential star like Kyrie Irving. Even the great Phil Jackson didn't play rookies in the playoffs that much.

happy for steve blake as well

Steve Blake is clutch!!! lol

It's not as risky as you make it sound, especially considering you'd only be playing him in limited minutes. C'mon now, the worst that can really happen is he turns the ball over like crazy or something cause he's far too nervous, but if he misses the 3PT shot, he misses the 3PT shot, I'd still take my chances better with him than Barnes, who can't buy one right now to save his life and Peace, who is more consistently awful than good, but it is what it is.

I agree. I would say it is part of Brown and Sessions fault. If you are Brown, you do need to call some P&R for Sessions. If you are Sessions, you need to say aggressive even if it is not a pick and roll play.

The thing with Sessions is that he is too humble or nice. He's more of a follower than a leader. He would rather listen to his coach than draw up with his own play. There's nothing wrong with being stubborn. In my opinion, Sessions just need to find the balance of being stubborn and being patient.

Pick and roll is needed for Kobe as well. Kobe just isn't athletic enough anymore to isolate

I agree with you about Barnes though, His mind has mentally checked out!

It's definitely mental now. He has lost almost all his confidence now and tonight it showed especially. He didn't even attempt a field goal and he's scared to take 3s even with them leaving him completely wide-open daring him to shoot it. It's crazy that he's been so horrid ever since that injury. It just seems even crazier to possibly believe that an ankle could really have destroyed his play that badly.
