Dwight just needs to introduce Nash to one of his baby mamas (preferably the blonde one) and I'm sure they'll get along.

yo.

Dwight will be fine as the Lakers will after the trade deadline and the Allstar game. I think we have to tear things down to the bare roots and these old dudes need to come to grips with their names being bigger than their games these days and differ to some of the young guys on the team

Just because its a "old story" doesnt make it any less true does it?

I miss a big man who has decent footwork and a soft touch on offense, commands the paint on defense by cutting off drives and altering shots, allowing his perimeter defenders to take calculated gambles on their guys.


you miss kareem? :P

Both are at fault, one on each end of the court.

Dwight has SO many reasons to yell at Nash for his pathetic defense.

Nash has SO many reasons for Dwight's lack of effort setting and rolling out of screens.

Now, when he's asking Dwight to get open, he's telling him to leak back out. Not going to happen, because Dwight isn't Amare or Gasol. We don't want Howard to take a 15-footer.

Nash had this same issue with Shaq. The only difference was, Nash wasn't going to yell at Shaq.

-------------

Nash has to learn how to play with a big man that can't shoot the ball. He has to realize that he can't drive, continue the drive behind the backboard, and expect NOT to get caught. Spacing becomes very, very limited once you get into the paint, and it's easy to stop a small PG from making passes back out to the perimeter, especially when he's not very athletic and is 39 years old.

At the same time, Dwight has to utilize the P&R much, much better. He has to understand who his PG is. Nash, Dre Miller, CP3...these guys need a big like Howard to be that second piece in the P&R, because headed back to the rim, a big man looking for a clean pass is so damn dangerous, it's either a bucket or a foul as long as the pass is thrown correctly AND he has the hands to catch it.

And really, I'm not going to close this post out without mentioning D'Antoni not being able to make adjustments. Kobe shouldn't be the only player able to get the ball into Dwight. I realize Kobe knows how to play with bigs in the post, as he had Shaq for years, but someone has to tell Nash his connection with Howard has to be more P&R (and tell Howard he needs to get his ass out there and set screens and play like an offensive-minded Kendrick Perkins).


I agree

Steve Nash is argurably the most unselfish superstar in the history of the NBA. If you can't get along or play with him there's something seriously wrong with you.

Rarely does an article make me change my opinion of a player on a dime but this one has.


There are many things you can coach and nurture in a team and a player but effort is not one of them. Time to move him for a young stud and move on. Dwight is not bigger than the Lakers Franchise. If he wants the keys, he's got to TAKE the Kingdom, not ask for it.


I'm over Dwight.

Because that's exactly what I said, right?

I've seen Dwight's lack of explosiveness and effectiveness in P&R and the offense as a general lack of conditioning and result of the aftereefects of major spinal surgery but it's become blatantly obvious that he's not trying. I was hoping he was just tired. I was hoping he just needed time to get his legs back under him...

I hate to say this but a true floor general is the barometer for the chemistry on a team. He lives and breathes the team's bond. He knows exactly what buttons to push and if everyone is doing their best.

Nash has played with some of the worst and best players at varying points in their careers. RARELY has ANY PLAYER UNDERPERFORMED with Nash at the helm. Even if he's not running the offense, he's the guy that has the most leadership experience on the team and he's the ONLY player that I believe cares more about the TEAM than himself.

If Dwight has problems with Nash, Dwight has PROBLEMs.

Dwight having problems with Kobe is par for the course. Kobe's not exactly Mr. Tact or Congenial. He can rub even the meekest person the wrong way because he is the ultimate predator, not necessarily the ultimate teammate. He's like Kenpachi Zaraki, a guy you want on your team but not necessarily by your side.

When it comes to how to hard a player should work individually, Kobe's the man.
When it comes to how to get a long with a teammate, I take Nash's word over anyone else on the team.
