Now there are some bright spots here. Steve Nash is not playing which means we don't know how this offense will truely run yet. But what is the real issue here? How many issues does this team really have? Is it mainly because of bad free throws? I know dwight is a huge part of it but last I check, other guys actually knows how to shoot free throws too. Is it because of turnovers? Kobe is known to turn the ball over a lot even during his younger years but some of the turnovers is the cause of his team mates not helping him out and coming to the ball. Or is it defense? You can blame coach Mike (No D) Antoni for his famous no defense schemes but if people actually understand basketball, defense is pretty much hustle and positions. I thought Dwight was the best defensive big man in the game? All of a sudden he forgot how to play defense? Didn't Kobe won several defensive awards in his career and part of a defensive team for several years? Suddenly he forgot how to play defense? And Metta World Tragedy proclaimed himself to be the best defensive wingman in the league. So far he's all talk.
But do you think the real issue is personels? Maybe we truely don't have shooters. All this Metta World Piece love lately makes me sick. I never think he was a shooter in the first place. He is known for defense. All of a sudden just because he was hot for a couple of quarters once in a while people put him in the Ray Allen catagory? DO we really have shooters? Besides Kobe who is more of a scorer, do we really have shooters? I can't find it. And Pau who at times can play like a hall of famer is totally not fit this offense for some reason. Our bench sucks and inconsistant.
So this 7 seconds or less and this averaging 110 pts a game plan is not working. Unless you guys are looking forward to an up and down season, somebody needs to figure out what to do with this roster. I believe it is time to trade a couple of people. Maybe bring in some free agent shooters or something. We need shooters. Our defense most likely will be better if our offense is flowing well. A lot of basketball people said good offense create good defense because when you actually make shots, players feel good and able to have more energy on the defensive side.
