Mike D'Antoni said the Los Angeles Lakers' issue is of the entire team coming together.
The Lakers lost to the Memphis Grizzlies on Wednesday by a 106-93 final.
"We've got an All-Star team out there," D'Antoni said. "Have you ever watched an All-Star Game? It's God-awful because everybody gets the ball, they go 1-on-1 and then they play no defense. That's our team. That's us. We're an All-Star team and we haven't learned there's a pecking order. There's the one guy, the two guy, the three guy and the four guy. It might not be the same guy every night, but somebody has got to accept being the fourth guy. If you've been the first guy all your life, that's hard to accept. That's what happens in All-Star (Games) and that's what happened with us. Like I said, with today's meeting, hopefully we've overcome a little bit of that. I hope. We'll see."

Of course.

1) Kobe
2) Dwight
3) Nash
4) Gasol

But no, not in this offense. D'Antoni's answer:

1) Nash
2) Artest
3) Jamison
4) Meeks
5) Morris
6) Kobe
7) Dwight

1 difference = the majority of players in an ASG are in their prime! (Not at tail end of their careers)

I really wish this clown would stop opening his mouth. Every time he does I want to ram my fist into his face...

How about making adjustments instead of opening your mouth?

To D'Antoni, he would do anything for Nash because he has only ever "won" with him. He's overattached, longing for the glory days and forcing an issue that will not pan out. It's pathetic.

I think D'Antoni is spot on. The Lakers have three great players, Howard, arguably the best center in the game, Kobe, a top 10 if not top 5 shooting guard; Gasol who has two rings and was a two time all star. Add Nash, a future hall of famer.

Last night's game against Memphis was proof. The subs were in and holding their own and keeping the game really close, even ahead at times. 8 min left in the 2ndQ, the starters come in, and bingo, the Lakers are down by 10 in an instant.

I am beginning to think this is a personality and chemistry issue. The guys may not like eachother. It has been reported that Kobe is tough to deal with, and he is not above diss'ing Shaq, Bynum, Gasol, and now Howard.

Maybe Kobe should take over as player coach.
