Lakers have 5 guys in their starting lineup, and 2 guys off their bench, who are at their best with the ball in their hands, or require it to maximize their skillset.
Aside from a small sample size of Juancho, their entire frontcourt has no consistent floor spacer to open up the paint for CP3 to attack or for Howard to operate.
I will be involved in EVERY game, regardless of how good they think their defense is...my offense is the most efficient in the game, with some of the best 3pt shooters in the league. What's going to happen when we slow down pace and go "Hack-a-Howard"? There are going to be so many times when you're forced to sit him and Favors/Whiteside/Gasol are just going to eat on that weakass front court.
We'll see though...
When was the last time a team with 0 NBA all-stars in the last 4 years won an NBA Finals? The answer is 0.
Iguodala is proven in the NBA Finals. His ability to close out games defensively is a key factor.
And your backup POWER FORWARD is Joe Johnson. How are you gonna go at my backup PF? Lmfao
Iguodala puts clamps on CJ.
You have a pair of traditional Centers which Dwight covers.
