Big Game James Worthy and Coach Dave Miller demonstrate the way teams are fronting the Lakers centers in the post.

I was gonna make a thread about this. This is why Dwight doesn't get a lot of "touches"

Should be elementary, better than just waiting around for Dwight to try to fight it for 10 seconds.

My high school team use to run something like that but it had the ball go to the opposite wing. and I would seal the inside when they fronted. Then opposite side would find me wide open on the opposite block. It's actually way more open than you would think. Then when teams would learn and stop fronting I would set a screen on my block and get a man on my side on the wing wide open for a 3. That offense was one game away from a CIF championship too.

The high post action is interesting but when ever we try that an player would get back to double dwight pretty quickly because they werent worried about pau's jumper anymore. Pau losing that mid range jumper pretty much nulled out his passing game

The way to fix this is to make sure the ball gets from one side of the floor to the other than you can enter the ball into post fairly easily. Also I think the first 3-5 plays should be given to Howard right out the gate to get him more active on both sides of the floor. We all know how Dwight plays when he gets the ball in the right places

Yeah, if only we had Aldridge. Pretty confident he would knock those down much more frequently & consistently.

Yea LA would be perfect with dwight. People need to remember that you dont need 3 point shooters necessarily but just some mid range one so dwight isn't being double teamed every time were on offense

we tried to do this against MIA's "crazy defense" but we were a split second too late on looking inside. we will get better at this

Big 4s are OVERRATED. you think Nash/Kobe/Dwight cant carry the whole Offensive load!?

this is pointless video cuz they dont touch on why D12 is easily being double & tripled team forcing all the uncalled fouls & or turnovers.

The corner person spotted up in corner 3 area trying to feed the post is the problem for D12. Lakers need to clear out corner completely & allow some1 from top side of 3 feed D12 & let him work 1 on1 instead of clogging everything up for him.

Wouldn't shock me if the Lakers don't even practice basic fundamentals like this, not with D'Antoni at the helm.
