He says

We picked up shooters in Young and MEEKS...

Said that D'antoni wouldn't play through the post and wouldn't change his style


Says we will lean on Nash to carry the "offensive load"

 

And said our ceiling is very low.


I swear no one is giving credit to our depth or bench.

That's alright.   Flying in under the radar and becoming the "where the heck did this team come from!?!?" team is fine with me. 

Make the playoffs healthy and playing well and then see what happens.   But that is the first goal, make the playoffs healthy and playing well.  If that happens we're a nightmare matchup on our depth alone.  Add Kobe to that depth if he's playing well by that point and we're a problem for other teams.  

I hope I HOPE the first team we play shall that happens is the Warriors.

Meeks isn't a great shooter. Let's just hope he rebounds during the season. 

The Laker's ceiling isn't very low (unless you consider that the Laker's goals is a championship every year). This team will make the playoffs. 

 

If everyone can remain healthy, I wouldn't be surprise at all if they made it to the second round.

Never mind that we've signed a lot of shooters aside from Young and Meeks, never mind that D'Antoni has been happy about the way Pau and Kaman operates in the post, never mind that we're three deep in the PG position, never mind that our main focus this off-season has been on the defensive end, surprisingly...

 

Come on, did he just glimpse over the roster right before making this video?

It's amazing really how some of these guys time & time again seemingly get away with not doing their homework.

he pretty much tried to do the basic "ESPN use the mainstream D'antoni argument" to try to get his point across as if no differences have been made...
