Name a PG that can stay in front of them.

Howard is late on his rotations and isn't jumping like he was last year

Howard's defense definitely isn't up to his normal lofty standards this year.

The foul last night was a culmination of him not being able to alter shots this year.

Re: Today's Game Discussion [12/26/12]

The Lakers and the Nets have basically the same record right now... and I don't know which one is worse defensively.

No PG can lock down elite PGs. The only players that can even slow them down are the top 3 perimeter defenders in the league. I will concede that Nash is not a Top 3 defender in the league. However, Nash is a solid team defender (and also generally draws the assignment of defending the opponents worst offensive player). That is by design. He is the offense. Once the rest of the Lakers stop playing pickup basketball and start playing the system, the lakers offense will start flowing. They also need to trade for a 3pt specialist.

Re: Today's Game Discussion [12/26/12]

I have to applaud a person who is committed enough to defend Nash's defense. It isn't as bad as some people claim it it, but that's about as far as you can go without risking your credibility.

Re: Today's Game Discussion [12/26/12]

That's about as far as I do go. He is not a good or decent man defender but is good at working in a system. The only problem with that is the lakers don't play a system right now, they are a collection of individuals no greater than the sum of their parts.
