I think that you make some good points but some are incorrect. I don't know if you're realized it or not, but your videos shape perception of our players, good and bad. Some people who have never played organized basketball listen to you call out plays and basketball lingo and take what you say as fact.


Let's be honest, a lot of it's opinions.


KCP does more good on the defensive end than bad.
Ingram often lacks effort fighting over and under screens.

Rotations 1 pass away are FINE if it's a part of the TEAM D-Scheme. Wall the ball off and force passes over head while helping the helper. Your short explanation left that part out which is detrimental to those who don't know better.

I could name about 10 things you cited that honestly could go either way and assumed the viewer has enough knowledge to recognize who made which mistake and what the overall gameplan is. You can't keep making it seem as black and white as "KCP lost his man".

Be careful in your analysis. Your bias, intentional or unintentional, has an effect on our fanbase.


This video is about why the Lakers have been giving up so many points recently, and KCP has been absolutely terrible during this stretch, regardless of how he normally is. His on ball defense against McConnell and allowing Redick the layup on the SLOB were inexcusably bad. And I've criticized Ingram for dying on screens quite a bit. It's just not a big factor in why we're giving up 135.7 ppg over the last 3 games.

The observation about helping one pass away was a criticism of the coaching staff. The Lakers don't have the size on the perimeter to stunt effectively and force those over the top passes, and that leads to easy shots. It's not practical for me to explain every element of the how/what/why on every play.

I have a process in place to help mitigate against my biases. For this video, I took every made basket and every time they drew free throws, and separated them by whose fault it was on that play, or if it was good defense and Philly just made the shot anyway. The players who screwed up most frequently are the ones who were highlighted the most. It's not me picking & choosing - it's all right there in front of me.

There's also an element of guess work. Is it possible that they wanted LeBron in a drop coverage as Redick was coming off of a Simmons screen? Sure. I just don't think that's likely. I assign credit/blame based on what I know of the Lakers' scheme.

I'd be happy to hear what those 10 things are.

Like, this isn't KCP stunting, it's him losing his man. He lost track of McConnell before the Redick ball screen even developed.

Defense is technique, commitment, communication, and hustle.

The team as it is today, has none of the above.

Yes, and it's funny how they keep pointing "but we're without Lonzo" as an excuse for defensive short comings. If they themselves are not aware of that, then we're more screwed than I thought.

We need our best perimeter defender back, Lonzo is the reason we've been getting out on the break. LeBron is going to have a hard time winning games on this team without Lonzo.
