The problem isn't Howard not getting touches, I think the main issue here is how and when he does.
You simply can't just feed him the ball and have him go to work, he's not polished in the post. If he doesn't get good position he's not gonna be as effective.
The Lakers have to run plays that make him more of a threat, plays that the Magic ran, ya'll know, when he was actually considered the best most dominant player in the league. And those are high pick and rolls.
If you put Howard on the top and run pick and rolls with either he and Kobe, he and Pau or he and Nash he'll be hard to stop once he gets a running start to the rim and the defense is on its toes in trying to decide who to cover. The triangle gave its big men these type of looks, it put pressure on the defense and forced them to pick their poison. What this new system does, is force one on one play which is why Kobe is taking so many shots. It isn't Kobe's fault entirely, since the proper sets aren't called. If there isn't high pick and rolls, coming off curls, or other sets called on a consistent basis Kobe will be in more one on one situations and he'll take advantage of that.
They truly need Nash to handle the ball more, have Pau and/or Dwight setting screens while Kobe flashes through. He can read the court the best and make the proper decisions and execute.
The best scenario is a more balanced attack, better ball movement, higher quality shots and a willingness to play cohesive and determined defense, since offense and defense are correlated.
Why do people comment in here that don't watch games?
Omg dwight was 6-8 they should have gone to him more
What about the 10 other times u pass it to him, he puts it on the floor and gets stripped. Especially when he tries one of his slow motion post moves..
I watched the Nuggets players laugh at us and light up with smiles
every time we passed it to Howard last night. It was like free
turnovers and steals 50% of the time he touched it. The other
half he just missed or got fouled and missed the ft's lol.
Thank Stan Van Gundy for that, he made Dwight look like a dominant offensive force and made Jameer Nelson and Hedo Turkoglu look like allstars.
Building around Dwight is the opposite of constructive. He is mentally too immature to lead a franchise to a title, plus doesn't have the skill to do it either.
yes thats called a fact chief, 2 wins. SVG was a better coach then the two clowns the lakers used this year. I'm not saying that inside/out will lead to a title but atleast a .500 record. The team is awful. Keep doing what they are doing and they won't make the playoffs. Thats another fact.
