LA Lakers LeBron and Westbrook. Did they find a solution to the coexistence? The key is Inverted Pick and Roll.
Did he find a solution to coexistence?
LA Lakers LeBron James and Russell Westbrook. Regarding Westbrook, who has been sluggish since the pre-season, LeBron James said, “We will find a solution over time. “He’s capable, and the more we play, the better we’ll get,” he said.
It’s an abstract word, but it’s a reliable remark because it’s LeBron’s.
However, there must be grounds. In the match against the Memphis Grizzlies on the 25th (Korea Standard Time), the LA Lakers began to conduct one meaningful experiment.
The LA Lakers began to use a kind of “inverted pick & roll.”
Inverted means ‘opposite’. In modern basketball, a 2-2 attack is the key. Among them, Pick & Roll is the most traditional 2-2 attack and core tactic.
After the main ball handler catches the ball, he receives the Big Man’s screen and breaks through, and Big Man runs into the rim at the same time. It is a 2-2 attack derived from this. In addition to Pick & Roll, if Big Man’s outer shot is accurate, it can be converted into Pick & Pop.
Inverted Pick & Roll is a method in which Big Man catches the ball, receives the guard’s screen, and deploys 2-2. It is an upside down 2-2 attack, and this kind of modified 2-2 attack is often used efficiently not only in NBA but also in Korea.
In the case of LeBron, he is such a skilled player. Therefore, it is not a standard inverter pick & roll. However, there is a similarity to Inverted Pick & Roll in that Westbrook plays the role of Big Man and screens.
There are several calculations underlying. First, it is the coexistence of LeBron and Westbrook. As a main ball handler, Westbrook is quite uneasy. The number of turnovers is high. There is a disadvantage that the outer shot is inaccurate.
On the other hand, LeBron is almost perfect as a main ball handler. Outer shots are good, and power can be used to break through under the net. Passing ability is also the best in the league, so it can create a chance for a player who digs under the basket. Therefore, as Westbrook stands on the screen, a 2-2 attack comes out in the form of LeBron rushing. Another one is added here 파워볼추천
There was a meaningful scene in the match between the LA Lakers and the Memphis. After attempting a 2-2 attack on LeBron, he passed it to Westbrook and later connected it to Anthony Davis, who rushed from the side, scoring a clean goal.
In other words, LeBron and Westbrook made a 2-2 attack based on Inverted Pick & Roll, and on top of that, Davis created a “Big Three” coexistence system.
CBS Sports said on the 26th that “LeBron and Westbrook’s 2-2 attack was carried out in the match against Memphis.” The LA Lakers defeated Memphis 121-118 after a neck-and-neck race. Did they really find a solution to coexistence?
