One thing people really aren't talking about is the Lakers are the first team to really CREATE for Nash. I mean Nash is probably seeing more opportunities to attack than he has in his entire career and plays like he isn't used to it. Remember in Phoenix he made it work for everyone else and people weren't really setting him up or creating shots for him. The Lakers are doing it for Nash and he's a little hesitant. Because in Phoenix he was used to picking his spots because he'd create those spots himself, but those spots were rarely if ever made for him. But the Lakers are getting him so many opportunities he is still getting used to taking advantage of them all because he's looking for someone to pass to or set up a shot for when he's his shot to take.
He'll get used to it
I think some have thought about nashs role in this team like that but thats a really great way to put it. hopefully he can use that shooting ability a bit more than he has shown, because, with the other great passers and scorers on the team they dont necessarily need him to create something out of nothing every time. There will also be a lot of plays he may set up but wont technically get an assist for because he passed to pau or kobe who then made the assist to dwight or whoever it may be.
