I blame you guys for not understanding what happened.
First thing- Mike Brown felt the pressure and installed a Princeton. That was partially Kobe's fault.
Mike Brown actually held this team back.
Mike D'Antoni did not.
Mike D inheireted Pau he was playing HURT and should have sat before the plantar even happened.
Dwight was not Dwight Howard, he was a good player, but without his stamina, he isn't Dwight. Similarly, if LeBron wasn't in the shape he is in, he wouldn't be LeBron.
So now, you have two All-Stars, but only Dwight was playing on an all-star level and he was supposed to be at a MVP level.
Nex thing, the tme that nash and Blake missed, we had no real guard play outside of Kobe.
It took Jamison and Meeks a good month or so to wake up.
So to be honest, this wasn't a SUPER TEAM, because of the injuries, inparticular to 3 of our Big 4, plus Kobe still has to play 40 minutes, so
Blame the same thing that has kept Yao's Rockets from advancing or Melo's Knicks thus far....INJURIES
By the way...The NBA is NOTHING but an entertaining TV show. this season- the plot is Lakers underacheive, which is a ercurring story every ten seasons or so.
Just like Lakers win happens very often.
Don't be the type of fans tha can't take losing so you resort to this type of dumb [expletive].
D'Antoni didn't make Nash hurt. He didn't brek Dwight's shoulder. He didn't step under Kobe's foot during the Atlanta game..But he has helped turn this team around since 17-25
