50/40/90 top 10 in NBA in 3 point shooting and our best shooter on the team.

Only thing he doesn't do is play defense and rebound which he hasn't done his entire career for the most part.

Don't downplay him he's very important to the teams success.

Other than Delonte West(who's mind is obviously in other places and basketball is the last thing on it). Name a really good point guard that was also a good wing defender that we could have afforded and that would produce more than Nash has for us this year.


:)

 

 

To be Honest in Hindsight of the Overall season we don't need a PG halfway through the season when Steve Nash came back Kobe still was runnig the offense because Steve Nash was turnover prone and didn't get much out of the Pick n Rolls that we did use.... 

 

I think Steve Nash came back on Christmas and was the Facilitator for most of January (which by far was our worst month out of this whole season) and it wasn't till February  we let Kobe just dominate the ball and play defense on the best Perimeter player since Steve Nash turned into a spot up shooter who can pass very well... 

 

We would have been a much better team if we had a LOCK DOWN Defender wing Player to take at least some of the Load off Kobe during the games

Nash's offense hasn't overshadowed his terrible defense this year.

we all fell for it this was Dantoni and Nash plan all along, yall really expected former Suns coach and player helping the Lakers win? I'm just messing around.

 

Nash has a strained groin, idk if any of you have had that, but that [expletive] limits your mobility and moving laterally hurts like a mofo

I'm amazed how quickly you guys turned on Steve Nash. About 95% of this forum was ecstatic when he got him. Now apparently he's old, stupid, a bad pick up, a puss, and probably will be labeled injury prone.
 
TLN is a joke.

He is old, is he not? One of the oldest players in the NBA. He's 39 years old.

A bad pick-up? We couldn't run the only offense he was successful in, and our defense at the point guard position is a complete wreck (worse than it was with Fisher), so yes, it seems to be a bad pick-up.

Injury-prone? Nash has been injured 3-4 times already this season, missing games, but to cap it off, he has had major back issues for YEARS. Those issues have limited his minutes in the same way they did Larry Bird later in his career...except, Bird was smart to retire. Not necessarily prone to injury yet, but at his age, it's starting to look that way.

You're getting mad that people are upset over a $9-10 million player, signed for three years, that underperformed and had one of his worst seasons since landing his big role in Dallas in 2001?

Tell me why you're satisfied with what he has done this year. Give me reasons. Effort? If that's all you're going to give me, there's no point in typing it out.

If LN is a joke, I'm assuming you won't be logging back in to reply to this...so good luck at one of the other Laker boards you decide to post at.

Well like RD said he's old and he can get injured at anytime, and he has disappointed a lot this season. I would only want him back if we get Phil back because Phil has been dying for a great shooter like Nash to play in his triangle. Blake is really stepping up though.

I lost all faith in nash. If he does come back which he seems not to want to then he should be coming off the bench. I mean what is nash done this season that blake hasnt been doing lately. Blake is doing well on both sides where nash only can do well on the offensive side.

Nash undoubtedly wants to come back. It ain't Nash saying he doesn't feel like returning. They haven't medically declared him physically ready yet.

It isn't Nash's decision. Let's not act like he's choosing to not come back.

Steve Blake has outplayed Nash this whole season. That's a fact.

At this point, if Nash is just going to be spending most of the season being injured, I'd rather bring Morris off the bench, and just stick him into the corner or something. Atleast he can do something on defense..

If Steve Nash has anything to do with the sudden improvements on Steve Blake, then he's done more that we can see.

I strongly disagree!

 

So far this season:

Steve Nash: 50 games, 32.4 mpg, 12.7ppg, 6.7apg, 2.8 rpg, .497FG%, .438 3pt%, .922FT%, PER 16.00.

Steve Blake: 44 games, 25.5 mpg, 6.9ppg, 3.8apg, 2.8 rpg, .432FG%, .428 3pt%, .704FT%, PER 11.56.

 

This is not a knock on Blake. I think this year he has been the player that we hoped for when we signed him back in 2010, but he is not Steve Nash. Defensively he's a bit better, but Nash is in whole different class than Blake on the offensive end.

Blake isn't Nash on offense, especially shooting the ball, but he plays his role well and realizes that there are two superstars that he HAS to play off of.

 

Defensively, he's not just a bit better, he's miles better.

 

Getting Nash was fine at first, despite knowing the defensive issues we were going to face (as long as we had Howard)...but when he began standing around and not allowing the two best players on this team (Kobe and Dwight) to create his shots (which is what Nash does best...shooting the ball, better than anyone in NBA history), he became a liability.

 

Nash's offensive play almost always covered up what he couldn't do on the other side of the court...but if he's not in HIS offense, suddenly, he's not doing what's necessary to win games and be that third or fourth wheel (his role on this team).

Choosing Morris over Nash? Nash is going to make you look real bad next year. But i agree benching him is a solution, he will double our bench production and wont be much of a liability against bench guards.

2 more years at 9 mill a pop and potentially giving up 2 prime picks. Awesome job. I see a Kidd like role in his future.

Lakers' season, as usual, hinges on medical results: Steve Nash (hamstring/hip) had MRI today. Results expected tomorrow.
