Although there is still a lot of time to adjust the Lakers esp when they have Nash back in 2 more. I do think D'Antoni's system is the wrong system for them to have. They should have hired a coach that works with their current pieces put together. The lack of Basketball team needs in communication between a Lakers GM and Coaching is so glaring here. Lakers front office is just not being smart.
Interestingly Magic Johnson had a dig on the Lakers in a News conference for the Dodgers. LINK
Johnson was again vocal about the state of the Lakers. |
"First, we've got to understand what the strategy is to win every game," he said. "Every game you have to have a different strategy to win because the teams are different. They have to be more consistent on defense. That's the main thing. We can score points but the defense is just breaking down."
“I asked them if it wasn't too much trouble, if I wasn't being too pushy, if they could execute what we were trying to do. And if it didn't make them too angry, if they also wanted to play some defense on the other end, that would be great.”
