Doesn't mean she's wrong about Steve Nash.  He was anything BUT Garbage especially in the second half of the season where he played injured mind you.

Once Nash adjusted to his off-ball role he averaged 17+/5+ in 15 of our last 20 games that he played.

That's injured!  What other point guard has given us that while on one leg and still shooting over 50% from the field?

Hes not garbage but we gave up too many picks for him.

Really?

Alright let's look at those picks

Middle of the pack first round picks in 2013(the "weak" draft)

and 2015 middle of the pack first round picks(no idea who they are yet)

As well as

Second Round Picks in 2013 the "weak" draft

And the 2014 "super" draft, yet it's a second round pick.


I'd like to know what world beating difference maker could we'd have gotten in the middle of the pack of the first round of the last "weak" draft and who we can get in the middle of the pack second round picks in the 2014 draft which would obviously come way after the first 10 in the first round. which is who everyone is talking about?   As far as I know we still have our first round 2014 pick as well.  

So what was the big deal about those drafts?  The fact they "could" have been used in a trade to get a younger player?

Suppose we'd waited, didn't get Nash and no team wanted to giveu p their player for our draft picks?   Then we'd have lost out.

I'm fine with gambling on a guy that would be the most deadly off ball shooter in the NBA and gave us 17/5 in 15 of the last 20 games of the season after finally adjusting to his off ball role on one leg.  Who could we have gotten with those picks that would have given us at least that? I can almost guarantee we wouldn't have gotten rid of those picks for anyone else that productive while still shooting over 50% and we wouldn't have drafted anyone CLOSE to that kind of production with those picks either.

just my 2 cents.

In hindsight its really easy to say we gave up too much for Nash.  Problem is this team on paper was supposed to be an easy fit outside of Pau and Nash would have helped then win at least one ring in his tenure here.  Fully making those picks worth it.  Now that Dwight is gone everything has all but fallen a part.

Who would have thought that Dwight Howard would refuse to run pick and rolls with Nash and Kobe.

Not even Nostradamus could have seen that coming.

They are extremely stupid in ever wanting Steve Nash! He has always been garbage and the NBA changed its rules just so he could be relevant.. He wasnt the best player in the league when he won the two MVPs and the lakers are stupid for ever wanting him. Until people realize where the problem started, they will never get better. Even Phil said himself that "the first problem is the Lakers need a point guard."Has always needed a point guard since Fisher started aging. Cant compete with the elite until it happens! Lebron really is just a big point guard..

 

 50/40/90 is garbage?

I would also like to add that

 

Wesley Johnson was acquired by the Phoenix Suns last year in part by using a second-round pick the Lakers sent to them in the Steve Nash trade.


So we basically just got the guy they spent the second round pick we gave them trading for :laughing:  

They used the second round pick we sent them for Nash to sign Wesley Johnson from the Wolves..and now WE have Wesley Johnson instead.


Funny how that worked out eh? :laughing:

hmm speaking of stupid, that comment just broke its nutshell. steve nash has always been garbage? name another garbage 50-40-90 guy with some of the best pure point skills in the history of the game.

i dont care for 9 million to a 40 year old but get real with that garbage talk. that money and those picks are the cost of doing business and trying to stay in the game. its harder to put a value on someone that could possibly tip the scales, hence why some players get overpaid for good reason while others just played for golden state years ago.

Abdul-Jabbar told the San Francisco Chronicle last month he met Howard only once and that Howard expressed an interest in learning from the former Lakers captain but he never again reached out to Abdul-Jabbar.

‘He’s charming, he’s charismatic, very nice young man,’ Abdul-Jabbar said. ‘Maturity-wise, he doesn’t get it.’
