Remember how hard it was last year crawling out of a 17-25 record?
Without Kobe for an extended period (say more than 2-3 weeks), Nash has got to be healthy and play near an allstar level and Pau has to combine with nash to be one of the most potent duos in the game for this team to be more than a couple games north of .500 (if we're lucky).
We've no question improved our depth and speed, its at the top we've dropped off. Whether MDA can make this work is going to be interesting. He's been dealt another tough hand for the 2nd straight year. I'd even go on record as saying if we get to the 2nd round somehow, he might get a 2 year extension...especially if Nash surprises, stays healthy and makes all our average guys look and play above average.
Farmar has my vote for the new guy that plays way beyond expectations this season. He looks primed to breakout.

Praying for 1. Kobe's Health (Nope, another season ending injury), 2. High Draft Pick (Randle...season ending injury game #1.*sigh*) 3. Miracle Trade (Not yet, but Black looks nice), 4. Quality Free Agent (Boozer, kind of, Davis, nice upside!), 5. Brilliant Coaching Hire (Byron coaching to tank and injure)
Obviously, the praying thing didnt work.
