We could really use him out there, we need someone who can create their own shot. Also, he can help get Pau/Dwight good position in the post which is something we lacked at times yesterday.

You can tell Nash was really excited about the game yesterday, and there's no question he wants to play it's just up to his body.

I hope Steve Nash Comes back in this series.Steve said there's a good chance he'll play in game 1. I hope he comes back. He is an important piece to the team. I hope he will destroy the Spurs like did in this game against the Spurs in the Playoffs. Anybody remember this?

Honestly I'd rather we have him for Game 1 :man10:

we have a decent shot at stealing Game 1. Game 2 will be much tougher no matter the outcome of Game 1.

Steve Nash was asked if all of his injuries this season have caused him to think about just calling it a career ...
"Nope," Nash said after Lakers practice Friday. "To be honest with you, it's been a tough year for me obviously breaking my leg in the second game and having this injury, but when I've been healthy, I've felt great, as good as I've ever felt. The biggest issue for me this year was just trying to find a niche playing alongside Kobe (Bryant) and playing with new teammates. I feel like that really started to come for me in the last month and a half or so. I was feeling a lot more confident and comfortable on how I should approach and attack. So, never did I ever feel anything but optimism going forward, but just frustration in the moment."

So, it looks like Nash has every intention of playing out the final two years on his Lakers contract until he's the ripe, old age of 41

what an immediate upgrade if he can play


i'd keep Blake as the starter and have Nash, to ease him back, come off the bench...

He needs to retire with Kobe, so that we can start over with Dwight. Hopefully land Kyrie somehow... if Mike Brown is the Cavs next coach, he's definitely coming here. :man9: :man9:

He did have a decent stretch of healthy games for a while though

The worst thing is that he's basically been an iron man his entire career. He has played in 74 games+ since the 01-02 season (62 last season in lock out).

Of course when we get him he suffers a ridiculous broken leg in game 2. Just like Malone tearing his MCL or whatever in the first 20 games in 04 after missing like 9 games total in his career prior to that.

If he's not mentally starting to check out and think retirement, then I'm fine with him staying. When healthy he hasn't been his old self, but he's still been one of our best players. While I do see injuries in his future at his age, I don't expect him to break his leg every season.

He needs to take on some of the Kobe role when he comes back.. Shoot more than usual so he draws the defense & gets some easy assists without turning it over alot. The guy is a great shooter I wish he'd have 20+ FGA games like Blake just did. We have to stop defenses from collapsing on Pau & Dwight & he's our best threat out there.

The only aspect we need is someone to help stretch defenses and probe a bit. If Nash can stay relatively healthy, play at 80%, I'll take his skill set. I am concerned about his first step defense, but other than that, his defensive position and decisions have surprised me this year -- better than I expected.

This is a Laker team that now understands it cannot rely on outscoring their opponent and have suddenly decided to play defense the right way. Whatever the outcome, the Spurs are in for a tussle.

THey didn't suddenly decide to play D. The Lakers are just better on D with Nash and Kobe off the floor. The problem is Blake and Meeks can't be relied upon to provide backcourt offense... and that's why we really need Nash back.

Nash coming back could be more of an issue actually. He's horrid on defense when healthy and with a hamstring issue it's not going to be that good.

His presence also puts another pass fist player out there who needs to be a shoot first player without Kobe. He and Pau passing up very high percentage looks for them to "move the ball" to guys like Meeks, MWP and Clark for 3's is exactly what we don't need. Pop will play us to do that and I hope Nash and especially Pau curb their innate urges to pass rather than attack.....

Yes, but Nash can really shoot, and if he realizes he needs to be one of the rare guys who can create their own shot, he makes us much better.

Nash usually steps up in the playoffs & plays great.. His career playoff stats are better every year than his regular season numbers. He's had some wars against Parker & the Spurs & I think he can bring a lot to the table if he can get on the court.
