After the game against Memphis, Kurt Rambis said if he was a scout coach assigned to break down the Lakers offense, he wouldn't know what to convey to his team because they don't run anything.
And James Worthy said they could literally go to the Parks and Rec department and find guys on the playground that are running the same stuff the Lakers are.
And defensively, half the time they look confused, and the other half, like they don't care.
A couple games ago D'Antoni, to back his decision to bring Gasol off the bench, actually said: "we have to get smaller ...."
With that line-up?!?!
Wrong coach, wrong system for this roster and frankly, wrong OWNER in Jim Buss, who's decisions make it obvious that he doesn't have the same eye for the game his old man has.
Every now and then the Lakers will still beat teams without as much talent this season in playground games, but every time they've come up against a well coached team that plays with any kind of consistency, they lose ... and for the record, this season, the Utah Jazz has been one of those teams.
