Hello, i just joined up to say that i'm pumped to see Nash on the Lakers. I'm from B.C., and seeing as how the NHL & the Players Association are having issues getting their ish together, it's nice to see i can watch Nash and Co. make a run towards an NBA championship.
I was a year late for Nash, but a few of the seniors on my team played against him the year before and they said he was a class act guy, which is pretty well established now anyways. And great to see Hill on the team too, as big a fan of his as Nash really. I have to admit, i have disliked the Lakers since the days of Magic, (who is my favorite player of all time btw), but mainly just in the same way that i dislike the Yankees, by default because of the dynasty like qualities and the fact they always win.
Regardless of my Canadian or Provincial pride of Nash, he is just a player that i have always respected for the way he conducts himself, and of course because of how fun it is to watch him do his thing out there. I think he will make the team better, and hopefully he has a couple of good years still left in him. One thing that excites me is realizing he has never played with a Kobe, let alone a Kobe, Dwight Howard, (great pick up btw) and Gasol all at once. It's almost scary and drool inducing to contemplate the possibilities. Expect highlights, i think that is a safe assumption to make.
Anyways, good luck this year. Congrats as well to any Kings fans out there, though i'm sure most of you aren't hockey fans. It's been a loong time, and something i wasn't intending on ever saying again, buuttt.. Go Lakers! I'll be cheering them on while the Raptors maintain their usual .37 - .39 winning % hahaha.
