Oh yea, and a decent bench.
The Lakers offense often grew stagnant and the ball didnt rotate enough. Kobe kind of took on more than he should have and forced things he shouldnt have last season. Nash creates space for the bigs to operate, and takes pressure off of Kobe. He will get our guys a lot more easy looks and helps in shooting, a huge problem last season.
Yes, we need some perimeter defenders. Lakers D wasn't actually all that bad but they have issues defending elite perimeter guys. I agree, it would be nice to have some defensive minded guys and a better bench. But Nash helps in a major way
