I think if Nash comes back, it would be great to have him as a shooting guard. Marshall finds players wide open at the 3-point a lot. Nash was one of the best shooters in the NBA 2 years ago, and I think he would fair well with Marshall finding him wide open.
The problem is this:
When Nash, Farmar, and Blake all return, who will start for PG?
Kobe will be the starting shooting guard with Young backing him, but I'm confused as to who will start for PG, who will be benched, and who will be third-stringed...
That is the question isn't it.
I have a feeling Farmar will always be the backup sparkplug. So it comes down to who will start between Blake, Marshall and Nash.
Blake is likely the starter upon his return if his game hasn't fallen off too much and it's gonna take some adjustment period for him using his right arm again. Although it sucks for Marshall, Blake is the better shooter and defender so he'd likely start.
As far as where Nash falls, I really don't know. If he's backup then he knocks Farmar out of the rotation. If he's backup 2 then he moves Meeks or Young. That's the problem with depth. But it sucks when you don't have it. We overloaded the point guard spot just so this wouldn't happen and all 3 went down.
Blake's was another freak accident when ANOTHER point guard crashed into him, just as Lilliard did to Nash last year..
So I don't know. I'm unsure as to whether Nash is going to play again, not because of health but his effectiveness right away, I don't see him jumping ahead of Farmar or Blake honestly.
Nice. Maybe we'll get some fun moments out of him. I'd like to see more production from him to see if he should be on the roster next season. Out of young, Meeks and Xavier we can probably only keep 1 or 2 of them. Right now I'm leaning towards young and Meeks, let's see if Xavier will knock one of them off.
I think the Lakers would keep Young over Meeks and would bring X back.
Strictly because Meeks offense isn't as consistent and he can't get his shot as well as Young, and Xavier has a higher upside than Meeks, defensively especially as well as finishing ability and getting to the basket.
So Young is the better scorer, Xavier is bigger with the higher upside and can play the 3. So I could see them keeping Young and Xavier over Meeks who can likely get overpaid elsewhere because of his shot although it's fallen off in the recent weeks.
