From the start, He said he wants to fix the Lakers defense.
2 training camps, full 82 games and 5 games into the season and they ranked
*29th in defensive points, 2nd worst in defensive rating this season, AGAINST 5 teams that didn't qualify for the playoffs last year.SRS rating of11(simple rating system based on pt differential and strength of schedule), 2nd worst
*inspite of having the 7-4 Roy Hibbert working his tail off and averaging 2.8 blocks/game
*It's not like everyone is struggling offensively. Clarkson is shooting 53%FG, 42%3pt FG.
Swaggy managing to shoot 42%3ptFG%
Lou Williams managing to take 7 FT attempts/game.
Randle's pleasant surprised contribution of 14 pts, 8 rebs/game
*Scott's inability to convince Kobe to stop jacking up 10+ 3pt shots/game, that he was NEVER a 3pt efficient shooter in 18 years.
If they can't win against bad teams, how does anyone expect for this team to get better?
No injuries to blame, no excuses, getting dominated by averaged at best teams at home. etc.
If the Bulls trusted a guy whose never coached a pro team, why can't the Lakers trust a Stanford guy whose been an assistant the past 2 years?
Come on Byron, prove me wrong, please.
