Yeah he sure handled that 2011 team real well. :laughing:

That year we went 57-25, good for first in the division and second in the west. All this with Artest having a terrible year, Bynum continuously hurt, and Pau Gasol beginning his steady decline. Yes, they got bounced early in the playoffs by Dallas, but I would absolutely LOVE to hear you say that Phil doesn't have what it takes to win when it matters.

Yea dwight I have to say if you wouldnt get stripped so much you would get the ball much more and also the fact that you are such a lousy FT shooter makes teams more willing to try and strip you of the ball. He's gotta get some better hand strength or just plain be smarter with the ball.

You're in Mike D'Antoni's offense, Dwight.

If you want more touches, stand 23 feet from the rim.

Kobe and Randle led Lakers lead the team to a 32-50 record. the Lakers select Myles Turner with the 5th pick.

Don't forget the embarrassing block on Pau at the 3 point line.

My apologies, from the looks of it on second thought, maybe Dwight never really was happy after all, here's some video:

Show me where I said that. Phil was great no doubt, but this team has far more pressing issues than just coaching. There's a personel issue. We're way too old, slow, and unathletic. We have one of the oldest backcourts in the league. Perimeter defense is awful. Our perimeter players just aren't quick enough to keep their man in front. We have too many one dimensional players on this team. The bigs Gasol and Howard cannot play together at all. Dwight needs space to operate down low and with Pau there is none. Lane is clogged. We need a stretch 4. We had the same issue with Gasol and Bynum. We also need a better bench. They aren't any better than last season. Jamison was suppose to be instant offense this season and he's struggled mightily.

Tell Dwight to stop getting stripped or turning the ball over when he gets it down low. He may have got up 5 attempts, but if you count the strips and TO's i'd say he should've been somewhere around 13-15.
The game changes, the players turnover, but the Mamba remains a constant!

The fact that Dwight is even complaining is ridiculous. This long in the league and your post game remains rudimentary. You free throw shooting is regressing year after year, and you haven't grasped the elementary concept of keeping the ball high when you catch it. Less complaining about getting the ball and more getting your fundamentals in order.

He should ask for lessons from Bynum when if ever he gets healthy again.

I didn't say you said that. I'm just stating that Phil was not completely to blame back in 2011. I understand that Phil would not alone fix this team, but what he would do is manage the egos better. He would have been able to take this roster and work the triangle offense around it. Pau and Dwight would be much more natural in the triangle. Nash is the only one that I think would need some getting used to, but he isn't here to score so it wouldn't be too bad. I know that Phil wouldn't magically make the talent on this team any better and he wouldn't make us excellent defenders. But he would definitely force this team to give more effort than we're seeing now.

I'm all for Dwight getting more touches, he needs to learn to keep the ball up high though.

Lakers were better without him. He needs shooters around him to operate, Lakers dont have that. It is a bad match.
