The offense is just Metta post up, Nash dribble drive, Kobe posting up with one foot on the 3 point line and Kobe dribble drive. Howard post ups once in a while and gets fouled immediately to choke on the FTs.
There is absolutely no coherence to this team.
I've seen you complain about this a few times, so I'll explain it to you. D'Antoni, Howard, and Nash, all at some point, have talked about wanting to use the "pick" as more of a "touch and go"/"flash and go" type of thing, rather than an actual pick. I'm not saying it's right, I'm just saying that this isn't completely on Howard.
That would make sense if he atleast opts to come up for a screen. He's just looking for post ups at this time and when he does receive it he just gets stripped or fouled. He atleast used to do work in getting good low post position early on in the season and now he's become too lazy to even do that.
He's just not working hard and I refuse to believe its the injury because he was much better early in the season.
You cannot blame the play when you are not even running it the way its meant to be, Nash needs that separation to work on his passing and now he's just being closed down far too easily.
