Silver Screen & Roundtable: How can this team defend...anyone? - Silver Screen and Roll
I'd instantly rule out this team ever having a good defense, let alone a great one. If anything, the Lakers should be aiming for mere decency on that end of the floor and not much else.
Drew Garrison talks about changing the way of watching the Lakers this year. Is there a championship in their sights? Probably not. But that doesn't mean you can't enjoy them.

This is a season to enjoy the little things. This could be the last season Pau and Kobe play together. This could be the last season either of these players even play for the Lakers individually. This could be the final season of Mike D'Antoni's wild sideline gestures. This could be the only season we see the aforementioned "Hollywood Nights" jerseys along with the yet-to-be-revealed sleeved jerseys. ... Sometimes we crash. We have to be able to laugh at it and keep sliding down to our destination.
The Los Angeles Lakers drafted Ryan Kelly. How will they use him in Mike D'Antoni's offense? Drew Garrison shows us.

Before he slipped into a Lakers jersey and onto the basketball court it was easy to imagine where he'd fit in Mike D'Antoni's "system." He's tall and he can shoot from beyond the arc, simple enough. Apples make apple sauce, and this was an obvious serving of apple sauce for the Lakers. Pork chops not included.
