BTW, for all the changes that were made, they are once again falling into the "give Melo the ball and get out of his way" offensive scheme.

IME, D'Antoni is the wrong coach for this Lakers team. Given their age and the talented big men, this team would be better running pick-and-rolls in a half-court offense than running-and-gunning. Time will tell. D'Antoni is certainly an improvement over Brown.

Running pick-and-rolls in the half court is pretty much D'Antoni's entire offensive scheme when they're not in transition.

 

EDIT: and this old-ass team will not be in transition much.

i saw a lot of d'antoni when he was with the suns; not so much with the knicks. what were his schemes like there?
post #9426 of 19266
in Phoenix it was about transition and pick and rolls, but they also carefully selected personnel - Nash of course was the key but they needed everyone on that team to be a great shooter, and then it was all about Nash creating the first open shot (which you were supposed to take whoever you are) . the only really good shooters for their position on the current Lakers roster are Nash himself and Pau Gasol

I think we will see more of Jamison & Meeks in D'Antonis system, those two are pretty legit shooters, 35% behind the arc and 40% overall in their careers. I think the shooting inconsistency will be on MWP, dude would just shoot from behind the arc w/o thinking.

Not even close. Brown hiring sucked, but they got Dwight and Nash and cut bait when they needed to. I'm most dubious of his purging of the management and scouting division.

No. he still has a way to go before he can be mentioned in the same sentence as The Colossal Jackass Known As James Dolan.

For reasons already mentioned here and sportcenter, etc., his choice of D'Antoni is mind boggling

Damn. Jeremy Lin.

End of 1st quarter v Miami, exactly 1 TO and 1 PF. 0's on all other stats. Star potential there.

Oh shit. Lin has an assist now, midway thru the 2nd. We might have a triple double here.

i forgot about Meeks, he is a good shooter. not too sold on Antawn though - he just looks like he's done.

i have a feeling that D'Antoni will run a lot more pick and roll/pick and pop to keep Dwight happy and use his (and Pau's strengths), instead of the Suns' spacing strategy. it's not a bad idea, but i guess they need to sell Kobe on the old Joe Johnson role as spot up shooter. Kobe's a smart guy, he'll realize that he'll get more easy buckets and prolong a productive career
