Re: Game #22: Lakers (9-12) @ Cavs (4-17)

I'm a Laker guy through and through. Screw everything else.

I honestly don't get as frustrated with them losing more so in the way they play. With exception of barely anyone (like I said earlier, mainly the 3 injured players) there are a bunch of morons on this team. Stu is grinding his teeth during broadcasts on the amount of dumb plays they commit. Also barely anyone plays really hard. Hill obviously does. As does Metta, Kobe, Meeks and Duhon.

What's worse is they've reverted back to the stand around and live and die by Kobe iso's crap. It's like when Phil retired Kobe became the coach and decided to just run his own shit whenever he felt he couldn't trust his teammates.

The "Nash is a savior" angle is overblown for two reasons 1) the team will right the ship eventually anyways 2) he doesn't excel where the team is struggling the most. But I think Nash will help the coehision and chemistry on this team A TON and that will reflect on every aspect of the court.

Offensively he doesn't miss free throws (granted he doesn't shoot a ton) and takes care of the ball, plus he gets everyone involved so that should help. And if nothing else he takes the ball out of Kobe's hands. So I think he will shore up some problems.

Defensively he won't help at all.

Defensively is where they are struggling most. I was about to say the paint buckets, offensive rebounds and deadly 3 point shooting make up for the offensive problems but then I realized the TO's are causing a ton of transition points. So Nash protecting the ball would improve the defense some. Then again Nash has always been an opportunistic passer like Kidd. Not a low turnover guy really. He'll adjust to his new teammates and not force as much.

Re: Game #22: Lakers (9-12) @ Cavs (4-17)

The biggest thing Nash will provide the correct usage of Dwight on the pick-n-roll. I'm incredibly surprised how few of buckets he gets from running the pick-n-roll with these team. Once Nash starts getting defenses worried about Howard get easy dunks, than lanes open up, shots open up, and guys like Metta and Kobe can capitalize off of it.

With D'Antoni, its really hard to judge this team without a great PG, despite their talented roster.

Clippers win 7th in a row. Lakers 4 games under 500. The Mayans predicted the world would end in 10 days. Are you a believer now?

Another pathetic showing. I will officially no longer be surprised when we suck. I have turned the corner and now will not expect to win any game.

@tomhaberstroh Lakers' margin of victory rank: 8th-best. W-L record rank? 9th-worst. The greatest riddle in sports right now.
Definitely an encouraging stat. Even with the bad D and turnovers their margin of victory is almost in the top quarter of the league. There's obvious room for improvement health-wise and exeution-wise, so it's another sign LAL will be playing much better down the road. Only question is how big a hole will they have dug.

Re: Game #22: Lakers (9-12) @ Cavs (4-17)

thesis: Nash will help with defense
how? stop turning the ball over 13 times in a half and you wont be forced to get back on defense and allow young teams to get a rhythm and run you off the floor
