Welcome to “My three favorite details," a weekly video in which I'll detail three plays or moments from the previous week of Lakers games that jumped off the screen to me, with one play highlighting physical attributes (speed, power, balance, etc), one highlighting mental attributes (awareness, reading of the game), and one play highlighting specific movement mechanics.
Today’s video encompasses the three scrimmages leading up to the official restart. These were some of my favorite things I saw:
So there you have it. Bubble Cheese showing off some elite coordination and balance, Danny Green showcasing his screen setting IQ, and Kuz showing off some new mechanics on a pin-down, catch-and-shoot opportunity from distance.
That's it for this edition of my three favorite details, but I'm going to be doing these here and on my YouTube channel on a weekly basis throughout the Lakers' restart. If you see something you think should be included during the week, tweet it at me at @3cbPerformance, or let me know if there was anything you loved from last week in the comments below.
