Now that I think out about it, wouldn't it be weird if the coach we have now is, in reality, more of an actual stats guy than the one we had before? Think about it for a second. How many times did you hear D'Antoni stress the importance of high-percentage plays? I wasn't even fully watching and four or five moments jump out at me, so it will be interesting to see what kind of adjustments he makes in-game.

It also makes perfect sense from the standpoint of Jim Buss trying to bring in a more quantitative approach to player analysis, though I still believe the hire was Jerry's idea.

I just hope Dan Tony doesn't read off stats of each player after every game like brown did, dam, that was so annoying

Yes Dan Tony stated like if you aren't a talented team, then you would want to keep the possessions as minimum as possible, because you have a better chance of winning or be in the game, with a foul here and there, the more talented team could lose.

If you have a talented team, then you would want to get a maximum of possession, because the combo of offense and defense, you should win the battles.

Something like that

D'Antoni was a pro basketball player that played at a high level. He atleast will make more educated statements than "Where were you at in May" Brown.

I could see a Pau trade coming. Frankly I don't think Nash has any problem running the floor, it's not as tiring as people make it out to be. Kobe if anything will have it easier if the shot-clock doesn't force him to penetrate and make difficult shots while getting hit without a foul.

The two players that slow this train down are Pau and MWP. They're playing their cards right for moving those two.

Anyone who thinks Pau will be traded is reaching. Who would they trade Gasol for? The Lakers are NOT going to jeopardize their 2014 free agency arrangement.

I'm actually a little excited to see what happens. Mike D has his deficiencies as coach, will see if he's learned from his earlier stops.

It'd have to be a three-way, if it ever happened (and it won't). MEM is not paying Z-Bo $16m to move to the 3 or come off the bench. CLE is an intriguing possibility here, but we'd most definitely have to throw our 2014 first-rounder into the pot and find a place for one of their scrubs.

Nash/Blake/Morris/Duhon
Bryant/Meeks
Gay/Jamison
Metta/Hill
Howard/Sacre

That's suddenly a fast break team, with players that can also do this:

All in for Showtime 2.0, no sets plays, point guard dominated system, aggressive kobe, offense as a rhythm/flow, more possessions, less post up howard/pau. Should be exciting to watch.

^LOL that's awesome :lol:

But anyway I never thought Mike Brown was articulate. Quite the opposite actually. He always sounded like a bumbling buffoon in postgame interviews. He could never give a straight answer to a question. If a reporter ever asked him about something specific that happened in-game, he'd always say "well I'm not sure I'll have to watch the tape". God I'm so glad he's gone.

Explain to me why would Memphis trade their best wing player for a Pau? Especially when they already have Marc and Zbo starting. Where does Pau fit? How does that make them better?

The majority of us have never played 40 minutes a night in 82 games against NBA caliber players before, so we're going to assume that it's not an easy thing, especially for a player who has been putting his body on the line for over a decade now.

Could we perhaps see a move of Kobe to the SF position under D'Antoni? You could make a strong argument that there are only two teams the Lakers would really fear making such a move against (OKC, Miami).

this was an easier question at the beginning of the year, rudy gay was an overpaid athletic freak that wasn't living up to his contract

and theyd have a suped up LO/pau/bynum rotation with genuine allstars, not just borderline ones as LO and drew were during their time together

There's no way in hell Memphis is gonna trade away Rudy for Pau.
That type of thinking just screams out a true lack of basketball knowledge.

Age difference, contracts, and the position their teams are currently in at the moment
are what needs to be factored in.

Yes we are the Lakers and we are fortunate to get superstars to come to our team more often than most.
But let's not act like some spoiled fan base expecting anytime the going gets tough that we need to pull a trade resulting in some other franchise bending over backwards for us.
Have some damn pride.
