    What if Steve Nash returns to his All star form?

    Everyone is pretty much chalking him up as a has been...I believe prematurely... What if Nash has a great year?...I truly believe we're ging to shock folks next season... There are a lot of talented players with a lot to prove next year on our team...including the HC...Public Low expectations and internal high motivation...We'll see what wins out...

    Lakers News: Steve Nash close to 100 percent, says he’ll have a “great year”

    Last year, the Fourth of July was more of a celebration than usual for Laker fans. The shock signing of Steve Nash was a move that many considered – as Mitch Kupchak once put it – a “home run”.

    However, Nash was shackled by the Princeton offense during the pre-season and opening night, and then ended up breaking his leg in the second game of the season. Nash was never able to fully recover, yet he still managed to average 12.7 points and 6.7 assists per game while shooting 43% from three-point range. Although, Nash knows that’s far from his best.

    Nash sounds confident about next season, though. The Canadian told the Star Tribune he’s “close” to 100% and he feels he’ll have a “great year”:

    “I’ve had a really good summer of training and rehabilitating,” Nash said. “I’m not 100 percent, but I’m pretty close. Good enough to go out there Tuesday. I’m thrilled I’ve had this time to build myself back up, and I believe I’ll have a great year.”

    While many are saying Nash is “done”, just one season ago he led the league in total assists – a healthy body, plus a system that will suit him from the start of the year should be a big help for the all-star guard.

    Plus, a big part of Nash’s game is the pick-and-roll; Dwight Howard never truly committed to setting good screens to make the partnership work. Now, with Pau Gasol getting more of a chance to play the two-man game with Nash (as well as new addition Chris Kaman) the pick-and-roll should be more of a staple for the Lakers on offense.

    That's good news I hope because 40 year old PG is a risk, and also we have to wait for an even bigger name to be healthy (Kobe).

    Our season will depend on how healthy will be Kobe and Nash.

    Lol Pau is going to get left behind if we're playing 10 second offense.

    Dwight being gone will help everybody on offense, honestly. He made our offense very stagnant and difficult to watch.

    We should refer to DC as "He who's name shall not be spoken."

    I can see Nash coming to form. People forget how good he is. Last year was just too injury riddled for him.

    Nash/Pau tandem can be special. We can revive.

    The biggest issue for Steve Nash last season (outside of injuries) was the lack of shooting around him. Teams knew there were no shooters so they attacked him. Give him some shooters it's a different story.

    The truth is painful

    Luckily he is player who's game doesn't rely much on physical abilities (unlike LBJ) so age doesn't affect him as much. Anything is possible with him.
