Also, you can't just hire gunners like Jodie Meeks. You need guys who can also shot fake, pull up for the mid range and drive to the basket. The 08-09 Magic had Rashard Lewish and Hedo Turkolgu at their peaks, which is why they were so good. We also had Jason Kapono last year, but we let him guy...why? Because he can only shoot and can't play D.
Who on our team are real 3 point shooters? Even Jodie really isn't because he's so streaky.
Lakers are also 20th in turnovers. The offense doesn't allow good passing lanes to open, causing all these tough passes, not making the opposition defense work that hard. Passing the ball well allows the offense to seriously use a lot less energy than the defense. Even if the offense doesn't score, the opposing defense will work so hard just for one possession.
