    Dude needs to master the Nash dribble into the paint keeping your defender on your hip move.

    I’m a huge fan of hiring people who already do what you need them to do. If you have to keep reminding them how to do the job the way you need it done, maybe you should just find a guy who relentlessly attacks as his nature?

    I don’t think there is anything but frustration awaiting you if taking the other route.

    Like asking Dwight to start shooting 3’s. Pointless. Either let him do what he does well and scheme around it, or find someone who fits your scheme better.

    His drives, even if he’s missing or getting blocked, are still leading to good things. Like that drop off to McGee for the dunk near the end of the game. Point guards in this league have to do that, it was the Kobe to Shaq special, it works for a reason. He didn’t shoot great at 4-10, but solid defense as usual, 10 boards, and still attacking the hoop. I would have been very disappointed if he regressed only one game after his big game, but he kept that same aggressiveness and that was great to see.

    Kid is so fast, he makes other players look like they're moving in slow-motion. Abuse them, attack as much as possible and you'll stay a Laker ;)

    um, yes. keep attacking using your speed, it scrambles the d and employs one of your primary assets. the fact that he made a few layups (really, that he even attempted a few) made that dumpoff to javale at the end of the game possible. had he been avoiding those, gobert backs off and prevents the score.

    Here’s hoping that his aggression is going to open up the game a lot more for him. He has great burst speed, especially in the open court but even in the half court. I seriously forgot he was that fast. But in time he can use that to his advantage if at times he wants to incorporate that step back three. I seriously hope that continues. I love that aspect coming out finally.

    OK, he’s onto something here. Both him and BI need to be more decisive and goodthings will happen.

    Hoping this can cheer Zen up a bit...You may not like the source, but these are some strong words/expectations for Zo.

    Anyone else feel like once Zo gets used to attacking the rim, simply from repetitiveness that is being requested of him now and a stronger body this year, that he's going to be really good at getting at least the layups both hands easily going forward, like Hart? And of course if he sees a clear opening with little danger to just rise up and jam the ball with his hops.

    watch early kidd, then watch zo's last two games. then watch zo's stretch prior to the last two games. you'll see the difference. pressure on the d by making yourself a threat with the ball in your hands, even without a jumper. moar.
