4 of the 5 starters on your team are offensively better than most players in their perspective positions. Beat them to the punch instead of taking your sweet time and letting the defense set.
And let Steve Nash run the offense, why else did you sign him during the off-season?! And he ain't cheap.
I know it's just the opening game, but the way they played wasn't much different than the way they played last season.
I completely agree. Steve Nash is great for the Princeton system, the way he moves about the court searching for open looks. Why he's not taking the ball up is beyond me. Kobe doesn't need to run the offense, nor does Pau, Dwight, or anyone else. They just need to get open.
