Mike Brown will give Steve Nash the freedom to direct the Lakers offense on the fly.
"The way that we'll put it together, Steve's going to have an opportunity -- he's going to quarterback the team -- and so he's going to have an opportunity to come down the floor every possession and in early offense play pick-and-roll if he wants to," Brown said. "It's up to him, based on where he decides to take the ball or a call that he makes or an action that he does, it's up to him to get us into some of the looks of the Princeton offense."So again, with him quarterbacking, or making that decision, he'll still have a chance to get the ball back after he moves or after bodies move. I don't want to completely give away what we're trying to do, but in a nutshell, he will have an opportunity to play pick-and-roll at the beginning of almost every play set coming down the floor in early offense. And if not, he can also choose to get to some of the looks out of the Princeton by making a pass or doing an action or doing a call or whatever."
Nash's teams in Phoenix and Dallas led the league in offensive efficiency for nine straight seasons from 2001-02 to 2009-10.
The Lakers slipped to 10th in offensive efficiency last season.
This is exactly what I wanted to hear.
Given how our offense looked last year, I don't think Mike has a choice.
