"Something that you think will work because I can almost guarantee that at some point during the game, you're going to run across a lineup that either is going to get lit up defensively or that's going to have zero spacing. And we're not even talking about chemistry. What are we talking about incorporating players like you want to put rondo and Anthony Davis together when you can for at least some spurts because they've got a mind melt, right? They've just got that inherent ability to know what the other one is going to do. You see this between the top quarterbacks in the NFL and their receivers. They have a way of knowing rondo and AD have that. So ideally, you want to try to put them together. Try to incorporate that. Westbrook, if you put him on the floor with too many other non shooters, the paint is clogged. And then you're not going to get the same level of Russell Westbrook that you would otherwise. LeBron AD, you can put whoever around them pretty much, and they will make it work. The Westbrook in order for him to have success, he has to be in a very, very specific environment. So now, try to add that in. It's not an easy job for Frank Vogel and the Lakers coaching staff when you've got guys like Kendrick nunn, who's out ariza. THT, all these players who are out that they expected to be there. So keep that in mind as we watch this Lakers team moving forward, there's going to be some lineups that are to clunky. There's going to be some lineups where we say, oh my gosh, the defense they're going to get annihilated on this possession, or where's the spacing right now? We're going to have to find ways to make do without ideal groupings on the floor at least for some stretches of the game because there's not really a way around it when the guys who kind of bridge the gap, and I'm talking about guys who can do both in theory, THT if his shooting improves might be a both guy can defend and shoot. Trevor ariza definitely a both guy can defend and shoot with those guys out. And with Kendrick nunn out, who maybe he'll be able to find, we'll see. We know he can shoot. With those guys all missing, it becomes that much more difficult to put together a lineup that again has no more than two bad defenders and no more than two bad shooters.
