So first of all you think we'll be running the entire time
Second of all you disregard D'antoni's ability to adjust the offense to our team despite offense being his thing
Third of all you'd pick Phil because he'd "find a way" to make it work with our lineup and "someway somehow" would make it work where players don't fit...
Fourth of all you think D'antoni can't "find a way" despite being an offensive genius(Kobe's words) and a very good coach, but Phil can just because he's Phil?
Alright first of all, take off your "Phil is my basketball jesus and no one can coach this team but him" glasses for one,
Second of all take off your "all other coaches are incompetent but Phil" glasses.
We have the best pick and roll duo in the entire NBA in Nash and Dwight Howard and we've got a guy as our coach that runs pick and roll; angles better than ANY other in this league.
We also have one of the most deadly pick and roll duo's during the Lakers latest championship run with Kobe Bryant and Pau Gasol.
That's 4 of our 5 starting lineup guys showing to be vicious and deadly in the pick and roll and we just got a coach who is the absolute best at running it.
Then you look at our bench
Morris/Blake are basically the same type and style of point guard and their job will be to initiate the offense in the same way.
Jodie Meeks is a knockdown three point shooter
Antawn Jamison is a stretch three point shooter
Jordan Hill is your garbage man and rebound guy(very vital for long rebounds and effort)
and either Gasol(awesome pick and roll player when he plays the 5)
or Dwight Howard(best pick and roll big man in the game)
manning the 5 position.
Yet you somehow THINK that D'antoni is gonna have a harder time implementing these players into THAT system? But that Phil just would because no matter how difficult the offense would be "Phil just can"
But D'antoni's offense which I just explained to you can fit with literally everyone in the starting lineup AND our bench and you think it was the wrong pick and that he's the wrong guy for THIS team....
Sorry but it sounds like you got your "nobody can do this but Phil just cause he can" homers on.
First of all his offense is about running I do expect this team to run more than not.
Second of all I do disregard because in NY he couldn't fix it when Amare was there and when he wasn't. When Carmelo came back from injury when Linsanity began he couldn't fix it.
Third of all I pick Phil because yes he would fine a way just like he's done in the past no need to go over that, you don't pick a guy who is not proven to be elite over other better choices that were out there specially the best coach probably in all of sports, what is wrong with you. I mean they didn't even care for Sloan who is better than D'Antoni and JVG but I can understand why they didn't call him but still better guys were out there. This is another mistake just like when they hired Brown instead of picking the best possible option out there and by the way they were willing to coach the team (Adelman and Phil) they made mistakes and it will costs us.
Fourth of all Kobe has said many things he even praised the so called Princeton offense and now he's like we didn't know it blah blah. Now I'm sure despite what Kobe said about D'Antoni offensive coaching abilities do you really think he will say that D'Antoni is better than Phil? Doubt it that goes back to my previous point of what he did in NY.
And you know what I like My "Phil is the best coach in all of sports" Special Edition glasses so I will keep them on.
Dwight and Nash best PnR duo? They've only played a few games and we didn't see enough of that due to the offense so that needs to be proven even though they will make a killer duo. Phil would've made the best use of that.
In conclusion... Meeks so far has proven to be garbage and Jamison apparently has suffered from that Laker disease that has plagued us in the last couple years, decent players come here and they start sucking i.e. MWP, Blake, Barnes, Sessions and so on.
Phil is the best period.
