When Lakers shoot well in 3's, it's good.

but when Lakers are known for inconsistency

When our 3 point shooter Steve nash, Steve Blake, Metta world peace's 3 doesn't go in,

I hope we use Chris Duhon, Darius Morris.

Devin Ebanks sucks so don't use him.

Although their deffense especially Chris Duhon sucks, their 3's are still good.

Personally when I think the reason why Mike Brown was failure was because he used only

3 bench players most of games. Steve Blake, Devin Ebanks, Matt barnes.

Don't just use the other bench player for garbage time.

I think our biggest problem is a combination of shooting too many 3pt shots (3rd in league) at an average accuracy (15th), while being bad in transition defense.

We should play to our strengths a lot more, which is Kobe on mid-range shots and post-ups, Nash shooting from anywhere, Dwight in pick-and-roll with Nash, Pau on post-isos or mid-range jumpers, Jamison and Clark on drives, tip-ins and 3s, as well as 3pt-shooting from Meeks and Blake.

That Metta World Peace is second in FGAs and shooting only .400 is insane.

 

Regarding Barnes. Dont even get me started. He is exactly the type of player we are missing this season.

Plan A: Shoot 3s, they go in, good. Play in and out.

 

Plan B: Give Kobe the Ball and get the [expletive] out of the way.

I came in here to say the same thing. Plan B is pretty much Kobe bailing them out.

But that's all wrong. We shouldn't count on hitting 3s or Kobe going off.

With the talent of Pau, Nash, Howard and Kobe as well as our current roleplayers, we should be able to have an offense that is pretty much unguardable. The fact that we do not have an offense like that is on D'Antoni - and injuries.

Pau has missed half the season.

Dwight as been limited but is getting better.

When things aren't working, having Kobe is a great back-up plan.

It's really a problem that we are towards the top of the league in 3 pt attempts but average in terms of %. This team isn't the Suns and has to stop trying to play that way. Ron Artest should not be taking 12 shots a game (1-2 more than Dwight Howard!) including 6 3's and bricking almost all of them. It's worse because all those misses lead to long rebounds and quick transition opportunities for other teams, which they will gladly take advantage of given the Lakers slow speed and subpar transition D.

Its the type of 3s we take. teams pack the paint against Dwight , so 3s is our best option.

 

Guys gotta hit open shots

 In and Out (Give Dwight/ Pau the Ball and let him do work and throw the ball out to the 3 point shooters).

 

If that doesn't work.

 

Pick And Roll (Steve Nash/ Blake/ Kobe Pick Nd Roll With Dwight/ Pau and have shooters out there for more room)

 

If that doesn't work.

 

Kobe Do Work.

 

There is sooo much this team can do and have potential to do, but our coach is a dumbass.

 

If we had Phill, omg... I think we would of been top 3 in the west.

Plan B should be regardless of what some of you may think about some of the roster abilities = stop only playing an 8 man roster. There should be a 10-12 man rotation depending on the opponent & or scenario like back to back games for example.

Pretty sure shooting jumpers or threes have been the Plan B this season

 

Plan A was supposed to be to dominate inside the paint, which proves to be an impossible task back then when Pau would play off the post
