Nash is still hella effecient. Nash will create shots for Kobe, and help Kobe's shoulders as far as the work load.
Couple questions for my opponent..
Who's the best pg Kobe's had?
obviously Fisher, but is Fisher anything like Nash?
I think Nash is a HUGe upgrade from Sessions. lmao.. Nash will be hugging jack be4 it's all over with.

I like Steve Nash a lot, and he is still one of the better point guards in the game. However with that being said, Nash being in LA will cause problems for the Lakers.
In the whole career of Kobe Bryant, there is one thing you can say and that he loves to have the ball in his hands, Kobe is one of the best at creating shots for himself. The game usually comes down to how Kobe does. With Nash being in LA, it is now his turn to run the show. The game of Steve Nash is getting everyone involved especially feeding the post. This changes two big things. Kobe no longer runs the show and with the energy and the ego of Kobe, we dont know how he will take it, and also this will put an extra body of work on the ageing Kobe if he is able to get past that he wont be running the show. Kobe will have to be more physical on the offensive side and have to run around and come off screens etc.
If you make Nash play 2nd fiddle to Kobe, this will hut his game a lot.
Fisher was a great point guard for Kobe, he was able to be effective and still let Kobe run the show. Sessions wasnt bad either. There will be problems in LA

"Sessions wasn't bad either".. lma0...
There will not be problems in LA.. that's seriously laughable.
Just think if they add Dwight, which they are trying to do now.
Can we say lob city 2?
Nash is a 2 time MVP...
Nash will push the ball, but he'll still be giving Kobe some great open looks.
Nash won't hurt, he'll benefit the best interests of the team.
Kobe, believe it or not, is getting old. Is he still one of the best players in the game? YES..
but Nash won't hurt anything.
Like i said, if they add Dwight, which i think they probably will, Nash, he'll be genius for this new BIG THREE, or big 4, whether or not they get rid of Gasol too.
Imagine a pick n roll with Dwight Howard.. lmao OVER

When there are problems in LA I wonder if you will find it as funny as you do now. I highly doubt they will be able to bring in Dwight if they do it will help there team on D, but I think Bynum has a higher skill set on Offense then we realize. Im not saying Steve Nash isnt way better then Fisher and Sessions, im saying it will be hard for both him and Kobe. Nash wont be the same if he doesn't have the ball constantly in his hands, and Kobe will not be happy if he doesn't always have the ball.
You summed it up Kobe is getting old, will it benefit him running a style of offense that he isn't used to, him wasting energy trying to get open or coming off more screens instead of waiting for the ball so he can create his shot? Nash can make this team a lot better but Kobe' s ego and him always wanting the ball will hurt.
You are obviously disagreeing with me, but you are not giving anything to back up your opinion
Why do you think the Lakers will be a better team with Nash? How will Kobe handle not always touching the ball?
Your last paragraph means nothing, since Howard isnt even and most likely wont be on the team.

Maybe Howard won't come.
It doesn't matter..
Nash 2011-2012 13.5 ppg, 10.7 assists, 3 boards a game..
Sessions 2011-2012playoffs 3.6 assists for the Lake show.
Kobe wont have the ball in his hands as much, but Gasol and Bynum will reap the benefit of Nash. Nash like Kobe, improves the team around him. Nash and Kobe are a solid threat, adding in All stars Gasol n Bynum. Lakers have made advances on the Thunder, might not take them out, but they have a solid TEAM, now!
Nash is a good quarterback, and Kobe will be a nice receiver, Rice like.

Once again you did not say anything about any points I made. In fact you are just repeating what I have said in past arguments except for the fact that Kobe will want the ball more.
I never said Nash wasnt good, in fact I said he was one of the best PG in the game. What I said though is he will not coexist with Kobe.
"Kobe wont have the ball in his hands as much." This was the point, to a player like Kobe, he needs to have the ball in his hands all the time, Kobe creates his own shots and has had lots of success at it. Now your superstar, especially the way Kobe is, he will not like the ball being evenly distributed. With Nash's game being to feed the bigs, Kobe may even get the ball less then many are expecting.
The Lakers are expected to do goo this year with the add of Nash. Everyone knows he is an upgrade. Nash has some talented bigs in Gasol and Bynum, he has a great scorer in Kobe. The only problem like I said is Kobe Will not, for the first time in his career, be the guy who has the ball in his hands the most. Kobe'd play and the chemistry of the team will be affected. Watch Out.
Also please dont use text talk in your argument. Very Unprofessional.
