I haven't had the opportunity to watch any Laker pre-season ball. How is Kobe being used? Is he in many PnR situations? Or is he mostly used in iso and off-the-ball plays?

The numbers are encouraging. He's averaging about 20 ppg in 27 minutes shooting over 9 FTA per game. He's shooting 50% from the field and 42 from 3. Obviously I don't expect him to sustain those numbers, but it's encouraging because he's been scoring with relative ease. It's like he gets more open looks per game than he's had over the last 5 years combined lol.

Thing is, Lakers haven't really employed the PnR in the pre-season games. They've been mostly practicing the new offense and just getting guys in rhythm. But Kobe has run some PnR as both the handler and the screener. He runs PnR with Nash and it really opens things up for Kobe. Dwight's presence alone REALLY opened things up for Kobe especially in transition opportunities. Gives him up looks and open driving lanes because team's aren't leaving Dwight. D12 runs the floor really well and it's opening things for Kobe. And it seems like Kobe is perfectly content with all this too. He's not forcing his game and the starters play really well together.

So yeah, most of it is off-ball plays and some PnR. I haven't really seen any ISO to be honest. Except for when he's posting up. But that's fine. Overall, I like what I see from the starters but it's the bench I'm worried about. I hope the Lakers can acquire Delonte. What a huge pickup that would be. West/Meeks/Ebanks/Jamison/Hill is a solid, solid bench.

Ive mentioned this before as well, he hasnt been that amazing thus far, but hopefully that will change soon now that he has a couple games under his belt. However most people might use the excuse that bigmen take longer to develop in the the league than Guards. Terence Jones has played well this preseason and is a sleeper imo! Keep watch for him

Ive always liked Weems when he was on the Raptors. Was sad to see him go though and not apart of the Raptors. I do wish to see him back in uniform one day though. It looks like he's really stepped up his game to improve just like AP. 1st time in the league was worst than Weems. Went to Europe became a champ won a few MVPs then came back to NBA as a nice role defensive player.

Plus he's DD's best friend too !!!


Just a curious thought, whats up with Beasley was picked 2nd back in 08 with the heat, and since then he's been bouncing around? Wasnt he like the best college player at one point, and hes not struggling to stay on a team even with fairly decent #s. Havent really watched him play so no comment as to why. I think heat would have been more threatening with Beasley as well than trading him to Minnesota for a 1st rounder

set up the free trial of NBA League Pass online but the LAL-DAL & MIA-BOS games are blacked out, shouldn't be surprised lol

Anyone know if I can unlock these games? Running a Mac and currently using "www.unblock-us.com" to watch American websites like Netflix USA and Hulu.

Wish Dirk was healthy for tonight's matchup against the Lakers. Eddy Curry guarding Dwight will be hilarious though.
