What about the start Earl Clark campaign? Or the give coach Brown time campaign? Or the Bynum will have the best year of his career campaign?
Nash I can live without. We don't need to score more. We need someone to make these young athletic guards work for buckets. We'd miss Steve's outside shooting. That's it.
And without that how are defenses gonna sag off Dwight?
Understand that if we don't have guys consistently able to stretch the floor, Dwight is gonna get swarmed on a nightly basis.
The only way you counter that is having someone else on the court that demands just as much if not more defensive attention, someone like Kobe Bryant.
Without Kobe, and without Nash, who exactly is going to be a guy that knocks down shots consistently at 50% that would make defenses say "meh lets not sag off this guy?"
Nash is not the MAIN guy for that job, but as long as Kobe's out he has to be.
If you don't have Nash right now who do you go to if they swarm on both Gasol and Howard to make them stop?
