The Laker Offense

I’ve put up a post about the Laker offense over at, talking about the lack of options behind Kobe Bryant. Follow the link to check out the entire thing, but here’s a taste:

So far this season, when Kobe is on the court the Lakers shoot 46.7% (eFG%), when he is off the court it falls to 36%. When he is on the court the Lakers have an offensive rating of 106 (points per 100 possessions), when he is off it is 78.4 — a drop of 27.6.
