Problem is obvious - the Lakers' strength is the bigs, yet they just shoot jump shots

This has to be the most flagrant misuse of talent I've seen in any sport, in a while. First of all I know that Pau and Dwight have not been as good as they should, but we still have an obvious advantage in the post almost every night, yet we CONTINUE to just shoot jumpshots...And if you REALLY want to get into it, we're not even having our best shooters, like Nash and Meeks shoot. We're having MWP, Jamison and a streaky Kobe take all the shots.

It would be analogous having Pujols, Fielder and Cabrera on the same team, and just having them bunt, and try to steal bases. I don't even know what to say.

You can thank the management for hiring D'Antoni for this. The guy can't coach well with any / most team personnel let alone one that needs to work out of the post.

Also, this team has more than just one problem.

He wasn't the only one who had a bad game. He could have shot 20 times and we still would have lost. It was mainly the defense today but Fido is right there is a long list of issues and not one player on the roster is excluded from that list of issues.

If there's going to be one sole problem with this team, it's that they just suck hard, plain and simple. :laughing:

Time to fire D'Antoni and hire the Great Heisenberg. Only he can save this chemistry-tarded team.

At least the hooker would care and listen to suggestions

Kobe is shooting horribly because he's playing all the defense and asked to score 30 points and he can't do that anymore

I'm actually pleasantly surprised he is taking responsibility - I've rarely seen that from him.

Only question now is whether Steve Blake's injury outlives Mike D'Antoni's tenure as coach.
