Lakers need to get used to their players, sure. But this Dallas team has so many new faces too not to mentioned they're 2 bug guys are injured.

I don't know why the hell the Lakers went out and got Nash if they were going to run the Princeton offense. I don't think I saw a single Pick & Roll all night long....

Ugly. Ugly. UGLY!

Nash didn't have the ball enough in his hands. Metta had the ball too much. Not worried though. This is a long process and I'm not one of those fans expecting 60+ wins. You can tell Dwight is still not back in game shape and Nash isn't fully comfortable. Still very encouraging things though. So happy the season is finally here!!

Please tell me Wade, Allen, James, Battier and Bosh were on the floor together at least once.

Five small forwards?



Barbosa looked great! A great add for Boston. He's going to fit in well with Rondo.

I'm not surprised. I believe when I suggested there could be problems to encounter I was called a blatant hater.

Seriously though, the best player in the game today, arguably the best jumpshooter in nba history, a phenomenal defensive player, an all star pf, and probably the 2nd best sg for the past few years.

No, saying negative things in a positive thread is why you were called a hater.

I don't think think anyone didn't expect problems to start. I expect this team to be rolling around AS break though.

Anyways, Kobe needs to be more involved, Metta shouldn't touch the ball anywhere near the amount of times he did yesterday. And most importantly, let Nash play his type of ball. Making him into an off-ball player is the most retarded thing you can do.

I hope the Lakers can pick up Delonte West...what a huge pick up he'd be. He'd solidify the 2nd unit and he can shoot, pass, defend and he can play additional minutes for fill in for an injury.

Bostons defence was the worst defence I've seen in a long time. They need to patch that up ASAP.

And the Lakers need to let Nash run millions of pick and rolls again. They need to run 3 plays 95% of the time, that's Nash pick and roll with D12/Gasol, Kobe mid postup, and Dwight low post up. Gasol can get his looks off of these 3 plays, and also post up if a mismatch is created. Its simple offence that will get them the easiest looks. Using Nash like Fisher is a joke.

I expect their defence to improve quickly because of their personnel and Dwight patrolling the paint, but their offence needs a quick change. These dribble hand offs, high post offence, and screens to get spot ups dont work with the personnel they have. It worked great for the Kings because they had bigmen who were great in the high post either shooting, driving, or passing, and guards who were very good cutters, and fantastic spot up players. I dont know what the Lakers were thinking employing this offence. Work with your strengths. One of the best pick and roll PGs ever with 2 of the best pick and rolls bigs ever, and one of the best SGs ever who now has a license to ISO without double teams. So simple.

i didnt know what the princeton offense was but after researching it, it seems like that is exactly what it calls for ^

Thing is, the Princeton O shouldn't even be used much with the starting group. Using it for the 2nd unit makes more sense.

it was terrible, specifically that transition D. but with Doc and KG, rondo you cant expect this team not to get a handle on their defence.

it seems absolutely ridiculous to use with the lakers starting line up. with two of the greatest ball handlers at their positions and two of the best bigs in the game that unit was built for P&Rs
