I wonder if Nash will be able to tell Kobe to F-Off when he starts playing hero ball or he gives Nash the death stare because he didn't pass to him so that he could take a contested fade away from 22 feet.
Apparently Kobe was recruiting Nash pretty hard. Kobe has never played with an actual point guard, so this will at least be interesting. And now they've got someone who knows how to pass it to whoever the big guy down low is.

Not exactly young athleticism, but it takes very little to upgrade the surrounding Laker parts.

Honestly, I don't this is enough to make the lakers the best team in the west, much less be able to win it all. BUT, if it convinces D12 to come to the lakers? Shit is going to get real.
No, Nash alone does not put them past OKC. But, they didn't give up anything to get him and it's not like Fisher or Sessions were providing any defense at the position, so you can't even say they lose anything on defense. Seems like it has to be a significant improvement.Beckley Mason was suggesting trading Pau for Ryan Anderson (sign and trade) and JJ Redick. That would be interesting. Finally get some shooters around Kobe and Bynum. How about a monster deal that includes the above plus the Bynum/Howard swap?To be honest, I don't even care if the Lakers still aren't the favorites. I'm just super glad they're not trotting out that same team from last year.
