Lakers dont have enough firepower
 
That's their biggest problem. their offensive is basicly Kobe and 4 guys who cannot create their own shots. so if Kobe stops making shots, their offense freezes over. Jamison is 38 and he is not gonna put up big scores on a consistent basis.

that's why they have only scored over 120 once, on a night when jodie meeks and jamison combined for 12 3s. othertimes they brealy break 100.

Well you can thank your brilliant coach for that. Their second best offensive player is forced to shoot mid range jumpshots instead of playing in the post while their 3rd best offensive player gets like 7 shots a game.

And there best offensive player is pretending to be a point guard for huge stretches of games and is getting minimal off the ball play or post plays.

Everyone is doing something that isn't there best skill. The only person who gets to be the self in this offense is Nash.

Nash was already a bad fit for LA and I think the error is just going to be magnified with D'Antoni coaching the team. The Lakers have a lot of adjustments to make in order to be a legit title contender and I have zero faith that D'Antoni is the type of leader and coach that can get them there. LA would have been better off acquiring J-Kidd if they wanted an over the hill big name PG lol.

This and more this.:oldlol:

The Orlando Magic don't have enough talent. Yet they are half a game worse than the Lakers. You don't hear them saying anything. And inb4 "they play in the east"

Magic are 3-8 against east teams and 4-2 against west teams.

Lakers have enough but it's going to take a very well minded coach to learn how to use each piece effectively. Mike probably isn't that coach.

Did you watch the Lakers last year? Sessions would be awesome coming off the bench but that's about it. And Mike Brown had to absolutely be let go
