But, he obviously can't strike the right balance with Kobe and Dwight (not to mention Pau), looks lost sometimes, and the opposing PG who is young, fast and athletic makes his life miserable. Which is why Kobe needs to start guarding them -- and that just spirals out of control really fast.
No, he's still one of the best set up guys in the league if our team is balanced. Kobe is exausted, you have to think Nash HAS to be tired as well. That's why he's turning the ball over more, that's why he's slower.
If we had a backup capable of handling PG responsibilities, someone younger and athletic, we'd be so gravy at that position. Someone like Sessions would be great BACKING HIM UP. Not vice versa.
