I believe the first game after the all star break he has been setting much better screens. For almost the whole season he was doing some wierd ghost screen or would just walk up on the screen but then just roll right before actually doing the screen.

Anyway you can tell that has been helping the offense quite a bit. Really glad he is doin that now.

That's because he's finally bought into Kobe centred offense. If you give 1 to Kobe he gives you 5. He realized that late but better late than never.

As they used to say on Around the Horn "inside informaation"

But I did make a thread about it not too long ago quoting Nash about it.

his ability to set solid screens and still beat defenders on the roll is a testament to his improving health

I agree that his screens are much better.  He started out slipping each screen which didn't help anyone.  One thing he's also got to change is how he rolls.  When he rolls, he ignores the help rotation.  That's where most of his turnovers in P&R come from.  What he needs to do is identify where the help is coming from, beat them to the spot.

 

He looks better.  Stamina and conditioning is better.  Hopes he continues to find ways to help the Lakers win.

Kobe is also doing the fast rotation after help defense.

Remember early in the season where I Dwight went to help defense and they passed he'd be left in the dust and it was very frustrating for him?

Lately I'm seeing him finally starting able to rotate back fast enough to stop the shot off the pass. That's the Deight we're expecting.
