See, this is what I can't stand at all.
We lose and stuff that has ZERO merit comes up.
Jim meddles and Mitch just takes it?
Jerry doesn't meddle and never has?
Y'all act like Jim is out there like Al Davis, Mark Cuban or Jerry Jones.
I can't understand why people can't blame Nash for not playing well... KObe for getting older and not being able to do the same things, Dwight for having a back surgery, and Pau for his knees giving out.
Jim isn't calling the freaking plays, and MANAGEMENT doesn't have to HIRE PHIL.
They fired Mike Brown when they thought HE was the problem.
It's more than coaching.
it's injuries, it's chemistry, it's confidence.
Some poor coaching decisions. Dwight has made crucial turnovers in a few of our losses.
Kobe as had bad shot selection down the stretch of a few of our losses.
Refs have not been fair in a couple losses(Joe Crawford)
Pau's lack of lateral quickness and strength cost us a few games.
It's not JUST coaching and ONLY Lakers fans talk about the front office this much.
So by this line of logic, the FO can acquire whatever for players, even if they dont have the talent to perform at X level ... and when they dont perform at X level, its those same players' fault? Huh? Nash is, at best, a well past his prime all star point gaurd, at worst, a washed up former shadow of himself, who in his prime could play no defense. Jamison has never been a decent defender and is a volume scorer. Meeks is an on agin off again streaky shooter, mostly off. I can keep going but you get the idea.
There is plenty of blame to go around- players, coach, FO, owners. But to suggest that its mainly the player when they were never capable of performing at the needed level is not accurate in my view.
