THANK YOU STEVEN A. SMITH!

The Princeston does only belong in the NCAA and high school level! Thank you!!!!

I hate this offense a lot! idc if they even get it together they need a different approach to the game!!

More PnR from Nash when he comes back.

I never like Stephen A Smith and I rarely agree with him on anything but unfortnately I have to agree with him on this one.

MDA is an offensive genius. I hope he sticks to his guns and keeps doing what he does best: Run and Gun. That's the only way to coach.

Searching far, but the problem is right in front of us....get rid of the coaching staff and back to basic, fundamental basketball....Kobe, Nash, Gasol, D12....MWP been doing what they accustom to for decades....looks likes they playing high school basketball against the worst NBA teams.

Perfect example is how Utah utilize Floyd when he's HOT! Milk him...so he knock down straight 3 threes....with the Princetons, no, gotta share the ball...BS...we've seen Phil play calling to feed players that is stroking HOT. Match ups and rotations? And Pau taking a 3 beyond the arc during a 4th rally? Makes no sense....

1. Ditch the Princeton, like SAS said leave that offense back in college and hs.

2. Re-instate the triangle, not saying bring Phil back just run the offense.

3. Get rid of Brown and his staff, hire rambis, fisher and shaw (if possible).

4. Or you could not do 1-2 and 3 and ride it out, fail miserably, try and learn from mistakes, or yet again try something else and completely ignore what has worked in the past.

We don't need a complicated offense. The princeton does not belong on this team, SAS said it perfectly we are not using our talent efficiently. I don't want the triangle back either because that is taking the ball out of Nash's hands.
- We need an offense based around the P&R, Nash and Kobe can run it very efficiently with Dwight and Pau, it makes zero sense why Brown is trying to install this offense.
- We need to pound the ball inside to Dwight and Pau, we aren't even winning points in the paint category which we should be doing on a nightly basis.
- And the fact that Jodie Meeks isn't getting ANY playing time is beyond me...he was a starter on a playoff team last year and now is a DNP-Coach's Decision.
- I don't like Antawn Jamison at the 3 off the bench, or this new trying to put MWP at the 2. If he is going to leave Pau or Dwight in the game at all times, then he needs to space the floor with shooters like Orlando did for Dwight. Bench lineup should be Blake/Meeks/Ebanks/Antawn with one of the big men. I love Jordan Hill's production so he still needs playing time but I think the bench unit would be more effective working an inside-out since they just don't have the personnel or talent to run the Princeton effectively.

It just baffles my mind how we can be underutilizing this much talent, and an NBA level coach is allowing it to happen.
Strength does not come from physical capacity. It comes from an indomitable will.
