Good Day ya'll, hope all is well..

I've been watching the Grizzlies alot lately and I gotta tell you, the way they use their bigs is amazing. I believe we have a better FC than the Grizzlies SKILL wise. I have to admit that I would take ZR over Gasol based on his passion and other intangibles that he brings to the table. My question is why can't we use our bigs like how the Grizzlies are using their bigs? It seems like they have a offense based on their skill set compare to the Lakers. I don't think we have a offense that will take advantage of our bigs. It's kind of mind boggling. I really appreciate you guys input. Thanks

But we have Kobe and Nash in the backcourt. They are pretty good passers if I say so my self.

Not really, LA's FC is clearly superior especially on defense. Memphis and LA defensive strengths are in reverse. LA has an avg perimeter D while they are stout in the paint. Memphis is one of the better defensive teams on the wing and they lead the league in forced turnovers. Randolph gets the nod over Pau on offense and rebounding but his lack ability to defend the paint is something that shouldnt be overlooked. Marc isnt exactly a game changer down there either.

Yeah but if you look at it from Aki's point of view, our guards never can hit the post man when he's established his deepest position. You always see them having to actually leave the area to receive the ball much further away from the basket.

Your post game is only going to be as good as the guards ability to make the first read. Our post game will never be as effective because of the guards who can't make a decent post entry pass.
