Tim Hardaway Jr is a rookie that has a future something that at 39 Nash does not. I can bet everything this is Nash's last year in a Laker uni if not the NBA. If THJr turns out to be a solid player then what? The problem is Lakers have 0 assets going forward. This means we can't execute good trades, have to hope some star wants to come here before Kobe retires (thats if he's even an elite offensive player ever again).
I think guys want to be right so bad they don't even understand that team building means collecting assets. Nash is a toxic asset. Untradeable, overpaid and old. Young players have the potential to be traded or developed into good assets and if they aren't good can be gotten rid of for little to nothing.
if THJr becomes a solid player then it still will remain to be seen if he's better than Blake or Farmar. Because if he's not better than Blake or Farmar than our starting point guard and backup(shall Nash retire) would be better than him. So what's your point again?
