Default Re: Lakers switching to Princeton Offense in '12-'13

What the non-coaching astute think is the Princeton Offense being run by Adelman is actually a hybrid based on the principles of Princeton, it's called the Corner Series I said earlier, a true Princeton cannot be run in the NBA but a creative redesign of it can work. Adelman developed the "Corner" with the help of Pete Carril.

Now.....what made this work for Adelman is that he had one of the best passing Bigs combo in NBA history in CWebb and Vlade........Pau Gasol can pass, Bynum can't, and this would destroy the offense completely.....not to mention it would waste Bynum's advantages plus tire him out.
Adelman is not a one trick pony, he knows several offenses and can create and design offenses to fit his roster.....Brown his shoes

Hope this is understandable for you

Absolutely. And I honestly wasn't trying to put you on the spot, I really was just wondering because I had no idea the differences between the two.

As far as Bynum, he can pass WHEN he wants to. I've seen him make nice passes. Unfortunately for us, most of the time when he gets doubled, tripled, he doesn't pass. He's kinda a black hole on offense. It would be even worse if we got Dwight and then ran the princeton offense. He's like at what, 3 TO's a game and 1 assist?

My favorite thing with this team would be the sloan offense. Big guys that can finish, and two of the games' best high IQ guards on one team calls for pick n rolls, with some little tricks here and there would be the best option in my opinion.
