Let's just say the Lakers were able to hypothetically sign Nash should the Lakers still trade Pau? I say no. Keep Gasol, bring back LO, resign Ebanks and Hill.

Steve Nash/Ramon Sessions
Kobe Bryant/Andrew Goudelock
Metta World Peace/Devin Ebanks
Pau Gasol/Lamar Odom
Andrew Bynum/Jordan Hill

Still not a great bench, but decent. With four All Stars in the starting lineup you don't need a great bench.

I still trade Pau because of the new CBA and also I think he will fail us in the playoffs again.

If the Lakers do somehow get Nash, do we trade Pau? I do not know. Since Bynum's emergence, Pau's role has dramatically decreased. 19 million a year for a guy just to shoot jumpers on top of the key is too much. As for Odom, you do realize we can't sign him until December, correct? And I do not know about you guys, but is anyone else done with the Ebanks experiment?

I think it's obvious Lamar is desperate to become a Laker again. He was last seen leaving Dallas in a Lakers championship shirt. There's no doubt in my mind he would willing to wait a little over a month in order to sign with us again. As for Devin he's looked solid when he's gotten playing time I see no reason to not resign him. Besides we need some athleticism which Devin provides,

We don't need an old, horribly defensive PG. We just traded Fisher for that reason.

I'm really really hoping we don't get Nash. He's getting so old and at this point, that's not what the Lakers need.

Comparing Fisher to Nash? Not a good idea if you want to win an argument...

Nash is below average defensively, but he more than makes up for it with his incredible offensive efficiency. Even at age 37 he's still one of the best point guards in the NBA.

You're hoping the Lakers don't get one of the best points guard in the league really? Another thing getting Nash is really bolster our bench. Sessions would be one of the best reserves in the NBA. If we get Beasley as well. Then resign Odom. Wow you're talking about one of the best benches in the league.

Sessions/G-Lock/Beasley/Odom

Damn.

The only real drawback to Nash that I can think of, is, like other people are saying: he's not a long-term solution.

Which is fine. Raise your hand if you thought Sessions would be.

I think Steve Nash lacks the size and strength to be a true NBA power forward.

So assuming we can sign Deron Williams (same amount to spend on either), should we?


This question is moot. Nash won't sign for the money we have...end discussion.


Nash has plenty of other options if he WANTED to chase a ring...options that would allow him to play the uptempo style that made him a 2-time MVP. That's NOT LAL.



Nothing to see here.

Defensively, both are horrible. And we want a PG that plays defense and is young and athletic.
