Default Lakers formula for success was shown in 2nd half tonight but can Dwight accept it?

Offense was run through Kobe in the post. He attacked 1on1 coverage and found shooters and cutters when Charlotte sent help. Dwight barely touched the ball on offense and was off the court when LA made the run. Can he accept being mainly a defender and rebounder?

It's obvious the offense looks the best when it runs through kobe or gasol in the post. NOT dwight. He actually thinks he's a good post player

People here think the offense should still run through Dwight though lol

Well no other team is stupid enough/small enough (Charlotte played with Sessions, Gordon, and Walker at one point tonight) to put a 6'0 foot Ramon Sessions on Kobe, so this won't translate to many other games.

Haters can deny all they want, but the Lakers are more successful running through Kobe...

And for those idiots saying its JUST the bobcats they beat, the Lakers went down by 20 with Dwight leading the offense.. to the same JUST bobcats

Face it, Dwight is fu*king useless unless its an open dunk. Plus, how many times does he just stand there on D? Too busy sooking, thinking hes a no1 option!!



Please trade Dwight for the best offer

Dwight needs to be our Tyson Chandler. Play great defense and get some good dunks in here and there but not be getting post ups on a regular basis.

It's a shame you can't play the Bobcats every game for the rest of the season.

it doesn't matter if it was against the bobcats. anybody with eyes and an unbiased mind can see the lakers offense is better when it's run through kobe posting up. we saw the same thing vs OKC. lakers offense needs to consistently go through kobe posting up, lakers are way too slow to run with teams at this point and dwight's post game is a complete joke but he can still anchor a defense if he puts the effort in (which i doubt)

His ego wont allow it. I personally think if hes going to play hurt, thats the best role to have. Defense and rebounding. We forget this guy is walking double double even if he goes half ass, hes still gonna give you at the very least 14 and 12 with 2-3 blocks.

I have always felt like a player not 100% should be worked in slowly.

I've never seen any team fans go out of their way to degrade all of their own players - other their best one - as much as Lakers do.

I think you're right though, Kobe's there best offensive player, and the offense should run through him.

It worked fine against OKC with Thabo on Kobe. Not many guys can check him solo on the block. Teams have to help and that frees up shooters

He thinks he's a dominant center offensively. He said he wants to go down as one of the greatest ever during an interview last week with Stephen A. That is quite an ego and an opinion of himself.
