Re: So, Is this Nash's Team Now?
It's not that he's the most importnat, it's just that the Lakers signed him to help them win a championship. And he's not going to do that if the Princeton and Triangle are going to restrict him as a playmaker.
It's like trading for Shaq and asking him to be a spot-up shooter. I mean, seriously, WTF? Shaq is a low post player. Don't change what he is. Kind of like how Nash is a pick and roll player. Nash plays one way the moment he picked up a basketball. And that's fast-paced, uptempo, and pick and roll. Any other offense and you might as well not have signed him.
He's not the most important piece, just the most complicated of the new Lakers.
