    Curry might not be able to move laterally at all, but he's got good hands (and he's ****ing huge).
    Curry has always been an above average low-post scorer that takes up a lot of space in the paint.....he just can't rebound, defend, block shots or do virtually anything else.

    They should bring D'antoni, that would be fun.
    I am sure that Buss has his cell phone on speed dial....especially if Brown can't figure out how to properly use one of the best passing PGs in the league.

    I just typed that, and I was serious.

    It wasn't about being the team everyone loved, it was about beating the teams everyone else loved.

    He also said that the Lakers are "not running the correct routes"

    The Lakers' problem might be right there: Mike Brown thinks that this is football and that Steve Nash is the punter.

    Lakers pieces make too much sense together for them to look this bad. Brown needs to figure this out ASAP or prepare to be punted.

    He also needs to figure out how to hide Nash on D. Holy crap he is bad.

    Nash is making DC look like Isaiah with how much space he is giving him right now.

    Also, gotta give credit to Sir Charles, he pretty much called every single one of the issues the Lakers are having on the pregame show. He is on record saying he hates the Princeton offense for the Lakers.

    Nash with 3 assists and Howard with 6 boards...those are pretty big alarms IMO.

    The Lakers just need to be coached by Rick Carlisle instead and they'll be fine.

    Eh, I haven't seen anything from him that we didn't see here. I just never really saw him do it consistently. Also offensive system.

    The pass to Bright, the pick and roll plays with Brand.

    To be fair Brand has been the one finishing those plays, I saw Collison make plays like the pass to Wright here, he just didn't do it consistently.

    Steve Nash didn't make it hard for him.

    I think this is about what you can expect from DC this year on the Mavs 15-18 PPG, 4-5 APG, and still really bad defense when he's playing someone other than Derek Fisher dressed up as Steve Nash for Halloween.

    I was watching the Lakers game last night thinking, soooo you got Steve Nash and take the ball out of his hands. What did you get him for? Defense?

    I'm lost.

    I was never one who thought Nash would be a great fit with the Kobe Lakers.

    But the real point I want to make is this - it is one game, let's not make any rash judgments

    Exactly.

    Remember the Heats first game with the "Big 3"? They lost their first game of the season against Boston and only scored 80 points. Our own Pacers beat them not long after.

    It's a long season and a bunch of guys who have never played with each other. No sense even talking about it now really.
