In an interview with Sam Amick of USA Today, Bryant praised D'Antoni's fast-paced offense, which epitomizes team play and features the point guard as the star. However, Bryant expects that his overall production will not change. As he put it, "Drop me anywhere and I'm going to get you 25, 30 points."
That's certainly possible in D'Antoni's system, but what about the rest of Bryant's teammates? Keep in mind, the Lakers' issue for the past few seasons has been Bryant handling too much of the offense. This is why Steve Nash, a favorite of D'Antoni, was brought in to run the offense, so that the offense would have a little more variety.
That being said, once D'Antoni comes aboard, how will guys like Pau Gasol and Dwight Howard fare? Both are talented on offense, but can they be a good fit for a faster system?
Needless to say, each of the Lakers' star players is going to post their own unique statistics playing for D'Antoni. Overall, it should lead to solid seasons for all.
