Re: The Lakers seem so dependent on Nash
How are Lakers so dependent on Nash and they haven't even played a single game yet? If Nash were to go down, Kobe basically would just be in control on the ball for the majority again, which should result in no less than a 3 seed once again, with a full training camp with Mike Brown.
I don't think Nash is the best, but he will be most important. He's gotta make sure Kobe gets his 25-30 points, while keeping the big men down low involved. All Nash has to do is facilitate and hit the occasional 3, which is what he does best.
