Steve Nash Discussion: Retiring; Lakers Disabled Exception

Can't believe some people were saying Nash signing was more important than the D12 signing. Then again I think most of them were bitter Bynum supporters.

In hindsight we would've been better with Sessions coming off the bench behind Blake or vice versa.

Not really.

Nash was SUPPOSED to help take the ball out of Kobe's hands so he wasn't forced to do everything. Nash ended up getting hurt the 2nd game of the season and the exact OPPOSITE happens. Nash was the ONLY other guard we had that could control the ball.

Bynum (at the time) wasn't that far behind Dwight in terms of basketball skill. In fact offensively he is/was much more talented. And he showed that he could make a great impact defensively and on the glass when he wanted to.

The step from Blake to Nash was a far greater step this summer than the step from Bynum to Howard.

Obviously retrospect changes things, but they weren't unjustified in their remarks.

Don't worry. Sessions has talent, but he wasn't ready for the big stage. We'll get a better PG, trust me. :man1:

sessions would have been amazing as a backup pg. wish he stayed bc he'd be doing the same thing he was doing this year but for the LAKERS.

Does Nash's injury have any similarity with Spurs Manu's? seems like Pop keeping him out just bc they don't really need him as they don't care if they fall to 2nd. they prefer it so they don't play us. sitting Parker too for "soreness" so I think Nash's injury is worse but not sure

nash has been a disappointment this year...as a leader both on and off the court. add his injuries on top of that, no bueno. he can still shoot well (when healthy) and the man looks good in a suit, but that's about it.

Too bad we didn't keep Sessions. I was pretty hard on the kid, but we could sure use him right now. he'd be an excellent backup.

We we retained Sessions, and resigned Matt Barnes we would be looking a lot better right now.

Barnes was injured 2 years in a row right before playoffs and did not like Brown as the coach.

Sessions faded in the playoffs and wasn't what we were looking for DEFENSIVELY.

His shooting has been a great asset and that's all ...

- running the offense through Kobe : more effective

- running the offense through Pau : more effective

- to decrease Kobe responsabilities in the O, especially in 4th quarters : FAIL

- Blake D >>>>> Nash D

The Nash experience : FAIL... his inability to run a efficient offense isn't totally on him though ... the roster doesn't fit his style of play

Nash for Wall, Jrue, Conley, or another athletic young PG with star potential is one of the most important moves we can make this offseason.

Maybe we can package Pau's expiring with Nash.. Or Jordan Hill if we're going to keep Pau & let his contract expire.. Nash is still a good asset for a team that wants to hand him the keys to the offense. In a perfect world, take on Conley & Z-Bo's long term contracts for Pau & Nash..

i agree he didnt meet all expectations...but the guy is getting to much critic here...
he is by far best pg we had since magic (except maybe nick)...but he got injured as soon season started and with all drama surrounding lakers it was hard to develope good chemistry...
give him better roster and he would give us better games...becouse as soon somebody gets back another player goes down,and its hard to keep good rytham...
blame mda or maybe kobe for not giving ball to nash at the end...we all now that kobe is the laker leader and not nash...
give me healthy roster with solid back up SF and nash as pg and it would be diffrent song...
his D is bad but i am used at that on our pg position, i dont believe anybody expected to get mvp nash...
i will take 12p-7as 50-43-92 anyday...
we only need more balanced roster and we will be fine...

^^ Bummer. Ok, before we even play this game tonight I'm going to say I really think MDA should think about expanding the rotation to include Duhon or Morris. These guards absolutely kill us and we need some other legs who can chase them for some minutes tonight. Meeks just hasn't been effective on D, and Clark is too big. It really would be wise to have some other guards available for some minutes out there on D.

Nash is done. Even if he comes back for the playoffs, he'll be even slower than before. Imagine a 75% Nash guarding Westbrook or Parker. Oh the horror :man6:

I hate to say this, but they have to give Morris more PT. Offensively he's putrid, but defensively, he's the better of the two. Same thing with Ebanks, those guys have to get 5-7 minutes per game and in the right rotation to just rest our guys enough to be effective on both ends of the floor.
Meaning with Kobe and Dwight on the floor. Rest Kobe with Blake, Dwight, Metta, Clark and Meeks on the floor, Rest Dwight with Kobe, Blake, Metta,Clark and Pau on the floor.

Kobe, Morris, Dwight, Ebanks and Clark for 4-5 min per half won't kill us. Not the best option, but it won't burn legs for the 4th Q either.
