Did you notice that? I am a happy Laker fan right now. I don't expect anything, but I have a good feeling about things to come. Anything is possible with Nash running the show.u

    Nash is a true floor general who keeps the wheels of the offense in motion. He allows the Show to keep defenses honest with both a half court and a running threat that needs to be accounted for...It's similar to RGIII in a sense. Also having an extra coach on the floor rather than the sidelines can work wonders down the stretch (think Manning). Nash also keeps everyone involved and has the ability to turn chicken **** into chicken salad. Keeping everyone involved lends it's hand to the defensive end where the team plays harder knowing they're part of the game. Lastly an overlooked aspect of having Nash is not having Kobe handle the ball as much as he is turnover prone. The team will be much much more efficient going forward.

    I watched Nash playing defense today.

    His biggest weakness, even at his age, is that he's not physically strong. Still, the guy works hard and doesn't cheat on screens. Compared to his offense he's no wiz on defense, but I've seen plenty of players who are a lot worse. And they don't end up chasing zippy point guards most of the time.

    This isn't meant as a back-hand diss to anyone else on the team, but simply a clear compliment to Nash. He's the leader of the team.

    Listen to him talking about Metta:

    "I want to say it's inspired, but this is what he's been doing the whole year," Nash said. "He pounds on the best player on the other team. He gets his hands on a lot of balls. Rebounds. Scores. Makes threes. I mean, he's playing phenomenal, he's a great teammate and he's a huge part of why we're able to win."

    Nobody else on the team, including the head coach, could make that kind of articulate and exacting statement, all in a way that reflects positively on both the speaker and the person being talked about. Yes, guys compliment each other all the time -- but Nash is right on the specific merits he cites, and on the context of Metta's contribution to the team throughout the season.

    I respect him for keeping quiet when he wasn't able to play, but clearly the man has been paying attention in detail to what the team has been doing.

    It was clearly evident too when he was injured as I'd see Nash jump off the bench when he was injured and grab a specific player or two during timeouts to mentor them or offer tidbits on their offensive execution.

    This is such a great title for a thread I'm shocked -- shocked! -- that it hasn't already been used.

    Oh...wait a minute.....
