Default Did we make a mistake getting Nash?

Well as we know, having a passing pg was never a problem LA needed filled. Basically we needed an average pg who could pretty much defend and hit an occasional three.

But as of now I kinda hate that LA decided to make Nash the centre of the offense which I believe led to the hiring of D'antoni.

Nash is 38(?) and more injury prone and I have a feeling once he gets back, D'antoni will run him into the ground. I think everyone would be a bit dissapointed with Blake or Morris starting at pg for majority of the season.

I think we should've kept Ramon Sessions or gotten someone else. He played well until the playoffs but that was his first year. I don't see why we needed a ball dominant pg when we have two ball dominant superstars(three if you count gasol).

Last year, session-kobe-artest-pau-bynum was pretty deadly and our main weakness was defending pnrs and guarding pgs. Despite this, LA obtained a pg who still isn't a great defender and our defense as of now looks even worse than last year.

Also with the signing of D'antoni (which I believe had a lot to do with Nash being on the team) he's really using the players wrong. and he's doing it purposely.

Will Nash be our savior?

Nothing entirely wrong with that...


It was not a mistake getting Nash because before this, we had Derek Fisher starting, and a Ramon Sessions who left because he wanted more money after he struggled. So no, it was not a mistake getting Nash.

Online communication is always terrible because the misunderstandings. But there is nothing wrong with questioning any player.

If Nash is injured for most of these next three seasons, it could probably be a mistake because we took such a gamble on a very old NBA player with a huge sum of cash. financially it can be difficult to recover from in the long run, especially if it doesn't work out, and no body will want him if we attempt to trade him. Then if we do end up losing him, we would still be way over the cap and have nearly 0 chance of financial flexibility of signing players.

Basically, we just have to hope he plays well and honors his contract.
