Yeah, IT has always played Huertas level D...really offers no resistance. That being said, Clarkson was pretty bad, for example...can you remember clarkson ever blocking a shot? Off the top of my head I canít (I know he did, just saying...very infrequent)

He isnít a great fit for us and isnít healthy, but itís not like we went out and made a trade for HIM....we traded for cap space and that 1st and IT was part of Clevelands dump. All good, he can hit shots and FTís....just have to make sure to play him along with some other solid team defenders I guess.

That's some mighty fine video work on breaking down IT. I got a bunch of takeaways on what to look for in tonight's game.

I've watched maybe 4-5 of the Cav's death march games. He looks about 50% of the player he was last season.

It's apparent to me that when he's goes flatfooted, he can't push off, He can't accelerate and he lost his bounce. Did he come back too soon? Is he still playing with pain? If so, maybe he shouldn't play until after the break and use the opportuinty to get himself right physically. If it's a matter of strength, then maybe a week or two with Gunnar might do him so good.

Great breakdown on the defense (or lack of). In complete agreement with the LFR video, he sucks on D even when healthy. Now that Nance is gone and it's now Frye or Zubac (and maybe Bryant if and when he gets PT) rotating over, the baseline defense won't be as good. It becomes even more pressure for the 2nd unit to not give up the blow-bys, but unfortunately, IT has never been able to stop his man, healthy or otherwise.

That's not to say IT can't fit in. Lou Williams sucks on D, but offsets it with buckets. IT needs to do the same. If he can't, then he should take a seat until he gets his physical conditioning back in order.

Until then, I have no problem with BI and Caruso as the primary ball-handlers until Zo comes back.

Not nearly as well as legend had it, and Ainge knew it well before the unfortunate hip issues. The absolute career best of IT was last year in Boston, in the 4th quarter in particular. Yet, PRIOR to his hip issue, thru Jan. of last year, the Celtics and their main core players actually fared WORSE with IT on the court, with an absolutely brutal impact on their defensive ratings.

IT on court vs. off court 4th quarter Defensive rating;

Al Horford 128.4, 96.2 NET: -32.2
Avery Bradley 121.5, 100.7 NET: -20.8
Jae Crowder 123.4, 84.0 NET: -39.4
Marcus Smart 124.4, 90.3 NET: -34.4
Amir Johnson 118.5, 85.5 NET: -33
Kelly Olynyk 120.8, 93.9 NET: -27.8

Wow. Those are some incredibly painful defensive statistics. It's only been a few games for the Lakers, but we've seen that play out here, too. Stuff like this makes me leery of resigning him at all, even as a 6th man off the bench. It'll be very interesting to see how the rest of the season plays out, as well as IT's contract situation.

Thank you, Cathy.

Yeah, Patreon and Venmo are two of the most important pieces of how I'm able to financially support myself in doing this.

Video compilation of every Sky Hook that Kareem Abdul-Jabbar attempted in the 1982-83 playoffs:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_s5R6UxxR8Q

You can find data on those sky hooks (and his post ups) as well as some analysis here:

https://bballbreakdown.com/2018/02/22/fact-myth-lakers-kareem-abdul-jabbars-sky-hook-efficient/

Hope it's alright that I come by to post this. Figured that some of you might find this interesting.

Cheers!

Good one. We can't point out just one thing responsible for our improvement, but what we see in terms of offensive game is another team, not only compared to the beginning of the the season, but mostly to last season.

Luke was right to focus on defense at the beginning and it seems now he's implementing what he wants in terms of offense.

Brook Lopez as the trailer is exactly what I envisioned before season started. Iím glad he is excelling in that role.

It must be scary for the opponent that almost any Laker can start the break...very tough to defend.

Lonzo
Ingram
Randle
Kuzma
KCP
IT

Pick your poison.

I'm not fishing for compliments here, but why do you say that?

I've had a few people say something similar. It's gotten more views and likes than I expected it to, and I didn't think I knocked it out of the park when I made it. I'm just trying to figure out what the appeal of this one was because that helps me with future videos. Appreciate the feedback.

I liked it as well. I don't think many analysts talk about transition as some type of system. Most people think players just run with less purpose than half-court sets.

This is a good video. I don't mind giving feedback - Concise and clear explanation of fundamentals first, with well-chosen video examples, and once basic spacing and lanes are established, then expanding to rim runner and trailer roles. Once that's established, then the nuances, the identification and tie-in of traits for several key players allowing for this team's versatility in who and how each player can fill each role in transition, again with well-chosen video clips that illustrate the points you are making clearly. Explained in the right order, with good background music, and very well edited.

And then the frosting - transition ball is fun to watch!

My two cents as to why it's well received.

The beginning diagram pointing out the spots the Lakers we're trying to run to in transition was $$$-money. The following video clips totally supported it & and were all the more interesting because they were anchored in a super simple diagram.

I grew up playing basketball and am a big Lakers fan and still am not familiar with all the jargon you use for some of the sets. The simple diagram helped me see what the Lakers are trying to accomplish in transition.

Makes me thing you'll someday be part of the video crew w/ the Laker's org (Someone's got to break it down slowly for KCP! ) Like we all know you get it...but now I feel like I get it too by watching the Vid...And will watch for the Laker's filling their spots in transition next game.
