10:04 AM ET 09.28 | According to Stevve Nash, Lakers coach Mike D'Antoni is considering adopting a model similar to how San Antonio's Gregg Popovich manages Tim Duncan by giving him games off to rest throughout the season even when healthy. "Mike mentioned it to me," Nash told ESPNLosAngeles.com on Friday during a sit-down interview on the eve of the first day of Lakers training camp. "I'm open to it. Obviously I'm not the type of guy that's going to look at the schedule and see which games I can miss -- that's never occurred to me -- but if there's a way that we can make the season better by missing a game here and there, I'm open to it."

They can really use him to run the offense while Kobe recovers.

Knowing Dumbtonie, he'll wear him down just like what he did w/ Kobe. Nash's minutes were actually limited last year.

Old guys need to play less minutes.......period.

No doubt.
The question is if Nash will be healthy enough throughout the season to make the difference.
I hope so but no one is holding their breath for a 39 year old guy.

It isn't like he'll be healthy to be playing very many games, let alone a lot of minutes.
