I'm trying to not get too giddy when Nash gets back. Lots and lots of ground to make up in the Western Conference. :man5: We need to start climbing the standings immediately and show that we have a winning mentality instead of letting other random teams get easy transition baskets and run us out of the building. Hopefully this Nash + D'Antonio reunion will be the best thing since sliced bread. :jam2:

Games should be at least more enjoyable to watch with Nashty Nash coming back .... more ball movement and nice assists ...

These latest two seasons have not been fun to watch for Lakers fans regardless of the games results

I can't wait for Nash to return, period. But I'm confused over the headline with the thread title, where was it reported that he's actually playing tomorrow? Everything I've seen or heard said it was going to be the XMAS game. Seems like the headline should be updated to Tuesday.

You can disagree with my prediction about the level of value Nash adds to the team when he comes back, but to say I am not making any sense is not only an unnecessarily insulting thing to say, it also completely misrepresents the situation.

YOU might think it makes no sense for me to say that age and offensive role, when combined with an ADMITTEDLY slow recovery from a very painful and serious structural injury, should cause a drop in FG%... but I believe it to be true. If you can point me to some statistical analysis that conclusively disproves my contention, or some data that at least shows a statistically significant trend in favor of your argument, then I might change my perception...otherwise, it will continue to be my opinion...regardless of your insults.

The fact is, no one knows for sure A. What Nash has left in the tank, especially after a broken bone in his leg and 2 months of inactivity, and B. What Nash's aggregate effect will be on this team's defense, turnovers, free throws and win/loss record for the remainder of the season.

We can all make predictions, and posture and insult and brag at each other...but not one person here KNOWS anything right now. I am choosing to be sober with my expectations of Nash's effect on the team. I know it is apples to oranges, but his play early in the year left MUCH to be desired.

I assume he will improve in a system he knows so well...but how much more room for improvement is there for NASH, when fatigue and pain, offensive role, roster dynamics, lack of continuity and intense pressure will be the primary influential variables in the equation of Lakers success for the rest of the year???

I don't necessarily see a huge improvement. There are just too many fluid unknowns right now...but like I said before, TIME WILL TELL. I HOPE I AM DEAD WRONG.

PS - I agree with LJ! The thread title should be changed to reflect the new info.
The End is nigh. Time for a total Cut and Shuffle. Kobe contract was a mistake...time to avoid making more. The future is here, whether we want it to be or not. An era is over, but for the death rattle, and it's time for the cycle to begin anew. Growth and change are scary and painful, but alas...nothing worth achieving comes easily.

As I said on @TWCSportsNet, bet on him playing. RT @ThatKidMarco_: @KevinDing so Nash will play tomorrow against the Warriors?


KEVIN DING ‏@KevinDing

It's simple logic that if he feels up to it, Nash will want to get some game action in before the big stage of Christmas vs. Knicks.

There have been a number of players (including other athletes like Michael Phelps) who have improved their shooting or playing technique while rehabbing from injury. But it is also true that it takes time to "get back in the groove," so my impression is that he might not be very effective until after playing for a while.. maybe a month or so?

In the Mike Brown system (or lack of) Nash would have struggled coming back. However this is the system in which he won two MVPs and is tailor made for him. He won't be perfect but he'll immediately improve the team. Curious who falls out of the rotation Duhon or Morris. Duhon runs the offense better but Morris has proven to be arguably the best PG defender (though at times he does get lost too).

Lakers point guard Steve Nash will play tonight against Golden State, a person with knowledge of the situation told USA TODAY Sports.

The person spoke on the condition of anonymity because they were not authorized to discuss his situation. Nash has been out since Oct. 31 with a left leg injury. The Lakers have struggled this season without Nash directing new coach Mike D'Antoni's
