Default Re: D Antoni: One of the least efficient plays in basketball is just the straight post-up

if you think the Lakers have looked good in halfcourt this year then by all means keep cheering for Phil.

When D'Antoni said straight post up, he didn't mean running the triangle though a passing big like Shaq or Pau

He meant when your play is to dump into into a big and they try and score. And guess what, the Lakers offense dropped off a cliff when they incorporated Bynum and tried to do that.

Look at the stats, the more time Bynum missed with injury, the better the offense played that year:
