    I have seen a different Laker team the past two games. What is the main factor in this?? Nash?

    Nash.

    He changes absolutely everything.

    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.

    The one big difference I've seen with the Lakers actually having a PG

    The pick n roll lethal-ness

    You can tell that the pick comes from Dwight and it forces the defense to make a decision. Stick with the roll man and Nash burns them with a wide open shot. Leave the roll man and D12 get's the ball on the move towards the basket.

    And because Nash is not a high flyer at all, it almost seems effortless. Like he's floating through. It just looks easy and makes the offense flow so much better. It causes the opposing team to play hard defense. This is best thing for the Lakers. In the past, no defense necessary for the opposing PG. That's no longer the case.

    It just makes everything better

    Nash is wunderbar. He is living up to expectations and delivering even more than people could've imagined.

    Awesome player. Excellent pairing with Kobe.

    When it comes right down to it, I think that this Laker team beats the Clippers in a 7 game series.

    With a healthy howard, if we slow the game down, we take them in 5 or 6.
