roy/williams/ridnour for nene
I'm not a fan of this. 13mil. for a backup C is too much. Honestly, he's not better than Pekovic.
Do you guys think the Lakers will even reach the playoffs?
I know it's still very early and they could definitely go on a run. As of right now they're 3 games below .500, though. And things are not looking good. Kobe is looking like a horrible chucker. Their defense is horrible at best considering they just gave up 117 @home against the Utah "We like to lose away games" Jazz.
Statistically, Kobe is having a really good season so far but what is obvious is that he's playing in Michael Beasley iso mode much more than in previous seasons. And he's playing too many minutes.
On top of that, there defense is very D'Antoni like right now. Kobe and Duhan are horrible defenders in the backcourt. Metta is average and Pau horrible. And Dwight can't do everything alone.
Add in that Nash is injured (although opposing PG's would pretty much blow by him too) and a pretty bad bench.
I honestly think they could miss the playoffs this year. Should've kept Brown as head coach. They can always score 100 but with D'Antoni they try to play a running style with a far too old team. It's not gonna work out in their favour, IMO.
