It was the same type of chance Kupchak took by entering into the Nash sweepstakes in the first place. He was urged by Lakers vice president of player personnel Jim Buss to pursue the possibility.
"Steve was at the top of our list in terms of point guards, but it never occurred to me that he would actually be available," Kupchak said.

Honestly Nash is good as any guard in the league outside of his teammate Kobe Bryant, Chris Paul, and Dwayne Wade. At age 38 with a horrible supporting cast he still put 13/11 on 53 FG%. Ridiculous. Imagine what he'll do with three All Stars? Nash is as good as ever.
For the price he is the best guard we could have gotten. Yes there are a few better ones out there but he commands the most respect on the court, the best guy to take an open shot, and the one you can be confident that he will make the right play in the closing minutes.
