Steve Nash Discussion: Retiring; Lakers Disabled Exception

Dwight can establish post position fine, but he gets in the habit of setting terrible screens.

In Orlando he used to have a PG (Nelson, Lou, Arenas) who could use their speed/quickness and see that slip screen to find the room he needed. He also had a SG/SF/PF who could lineup at the opposite side and command respect from the three point line. The ball would just move outside until he sealed inside and it was no big deal that he never actually set a screen.

In LA, we don't have that. He needs to set a solid screen and that's not something he does normally. Nash then gets trapped quickly and it's game over.

Nash should be the recipient of a lot of open 3's that are going to MWP. I saw him multiple times this game wide open at the 3 point line, hands ready, only for a bad shot to be put up by MWP or someone else. If Kobe is going to be pg, let Nash be the SG he's playing, let him shoot, give him SOMETHING to do, there's no one I want taking open shots more than Nash.

These past five games we've seen a lot of ball movement from everyone but MWP, it seems to me. I've seen everyone make the extra pass when they had a reasonably good look in order to get the next guy a better one, except MWP. Tunnel vision applies for shooting too I guess.

MWP really does suffer from tunnel vision and frankly I believe it's because of how high his confidence in himself is. You would think think seeing all the extra passes his teammates do will click something but sadly it hasn't.

MWP deserves to have confidence. He's in amazing shape. he's probably been the most consistent out of all our role players. He's hitting the 3's at a respectable percentage. He does have some bonehead moves, but so does every other guy on our team.


Back to Nash, love this guy. he's just a sniper from out there. Its too bad he can't be the creator he was in PHX, but he's doing fine just staying within the offense and just hitting those wide open shots.

I would've loved to see prime Nash and Kobe on the same team. I still remember them going at it in their primes from 06-10. Nash's passing with drop 50 any day Kobe? Man, this team would've been sick. It's too bad they are paired up now as Dinodudes.

True. Don't know if we could've pulled it off (Phoenix has to want to trade him), but having this team with those guys younger or in their primes would've been insane. Even just one of them, put '06 Kobe on this team and it's a whole different game. I would do anything to watch that
Too bad Kobe's prime was wasted like that. When he got some help he was kinda exiting it, still beasting, but no question his prime was around between 05-08

I have been watching Nash for years, but I've never seen him missing 2 FTs in the clutch. Never.

Clark and Nash both deserve a kick in the butt for that last minute choke job. Gasol almost broke the backboard and Kobe jacked up an insane off-balanced shot...it was a collective "moment".

Nash missed 2 free throws, but before that he was great. He hit that little shot just outside the lane to keep us up, he hit that foot on the line 2 with no hesitation, he had the 10 assists, great game from him.

Nash missing two FT's was the WEIRDEST THING EVER. I thought the game was over when he went to the line... and he missed BOTH. :man10:

Luckily, Detroit sucks, so we pulled out. And before those missed FT's, Nash was pretty damn good.

Just did the math, and yup, Nash just dropped to 2nd place all time behind Mark Price.

Since 1/7/06, Nash had 583 2-shot free throw attempts without missing both, before today. Didn’t end up hurting LAL.

Well, now he can go another 600 days before he misses both. And then his contract will expire.
