Default What exactly is Dantoni doing that makes him bad?

I dont get it. How can he be blamed when the Lakers suck so bad? Is there anything "specifically" he does on defense or philosophically on defense that makes the Lakers bad?

its the defense, but thats just part of the problem. Thing is we have scrubs out there like Eubanks, Duhon, Morris. and a Sacre sighting tonite. You think youd see these guys if we had the somewhat less scrubbish Steve blake back, Nash back, and Gasol back? it would be jamison, hill, meeks mainly

Stop scapegoating coaches. In the NBA, the talent on the floor almost always dictates the results.

Beyond their top 4, the Lakers roster is friggin' awful. So when 2 of those 4 are out with injuries, they have to give more minutes to some terrible players and this is what happens.

guys aren't rotating, aren't communicating, not switching on PNRs, etc. that's just defense but i think that's their biggest issue. that's shit that gets worked out in practice through repetition. a lot of team defense falls on the coach.

offensively...too much iso. it's really hard to judge the offense without nash though. MDA's system is so dependent on a capable PG.

It's not just defense, but more specifically, transition defense. This is the oldest team D'Antoni has ever coached and it's much more difficult to get back on defense when turning balls over.
