Steve Nash makes Lakers regular season debut
 
RotoWorld reports: Lakers: Steve Nash had just seven points, two rebounds and four assists on 3-of-9 shooting in the Lakers' opening loss at home to the Mavericks on Tuesday. Yuck. Nash spent most of the night playing off the ball and it would appear that Mike Brown's decision to run a half-court offense doesn't take advantage of the tools he has to work with. Maybe he'll get it worked out soon, but Nash could be in for a long year if the offense doesn't change. Keep in mind this was just Game 1 of a long season, and odds are that Nash starts looking more like himself sooner than later, regardless of what Brown is doing. This was Nash's first game with less than 10 points and five assists when he played more than 20 minutes, according to Shaquille O'Neal on the post game show.

Sessions averaged like 12 3 6 with the lakers.

I think Nash will get around the same with a few more assists. Maybe 12 2 9
His stat probably wont be to consistent because Kobe will take over games a lot but when he gets the pick and roll with Howard down it will free up Kobe Artest and Pau for more open shots. Hopefully Mike Brown gives him a little more freedom to.

Nash isnt gonna be a great fantasy player but if you need %s and assists he will be a nice option.

I believe its the 1st regular season game Kobe has played without recoding an assist since since Shaq left the Lakers. Clearly it was a bad game if you were looking for assists from the Lakers guards. But there is no way that will be consistent problem when there are so many great players on this team.
