    “Wes Johnson said he had multiple offers this summer, but preferred Lakers bc of the system. Bucks, Hawks offered him more $/yrs than LA” –Ramona Shelburne

    Farmar and Young have all said the same thing. D’Antoni haters these Lakers like him.

      D’Antoni didn’t make many friends last year. This season is different: he has adjusted his system to the players a great deal + he’s paid some attention to defense, most needed. Still, some adjustments would be welcome to help the bigs’ offense + cut down turnovers by precipitation and improvisation with the ball in the wrong hands.

        MDA adjusted his system last year also. As a matterer of fact, we never saw his system last season according to Nash and other Laker players. The Gasol beef was D12 stay driven. If Howard had got along with Kobe, Pau was gonna be traded no doubt.

        The D’Antoni no defense theme is a little over played IMO. MDA wants to have as many offensive possessions as possible. This causes the opponent to have more offensive touches also. Shawn Marion, Raja Bell, Kurt Thomas, Landry Fields, Shawne Williams and a healthy Amare Stoudmire were all very good defenders groomed under D’Antoni. The high scores were all about offensive pace.

        The turnovers are a byproduct of the team getting to know each other coupled with getting comfortable in the new system. The Lakers are actually top ten best at taking care of the basketball. Blake and the D’Antoni PG system are a big reason for that.

    Kobe needs to come back and play in sync with this team, not a one man game.

      exactly, i strongly hope he will not destroy the chemistry we have at this point of the season, but as far as I am aware of his attitude,the team won’t be so happy when he returns.. just when no one will have the possibility of shooting the ball because of our beloved star.. time will tell, hope for the best
