Nash has no one to run the pick and roll with. Dwight can't catch any sort of pass unless it's a lob and Pau's too slow to run it effectively.
Well I still think Nash can be an effective player if he's playing about 25mpg, but anyway my comment was on the Lakers gamble on a Nash-Dantoni reunion, not Nash the player.
Even though he had a good relationship with Pringles and was fine with the hire, I very much doubt he would've been Kobe's first choice for a coach. Matter of fact I doubt he'd be the first choice of anyone on the team other than Nash.
Not saying he was the driving force behind the hire, but its hard to imagine that Nash being a Laker and the thought of rekindling the magic the two of them had wasn't a huge reason why MDA was considered and eventually hired.
