    He'll also keep the pick if that player happens to be the brother of a more highly regarded draft pick (see: Taylor Griffin, Robin Lopez).

    Getting Nash is a step in the right direction for the Lakeshow. But they still need to add more depth. It would be nice to have someone coming off the bench that can actually score.

    I'm very excited to see Nash play for the Lakers. What a great, low-risk pickup. Whatever the rotation may be, Nash will be adding depth to the bench. What doesn’t excite me are all the pending no-look passes soon to be bumbled off the fingertips of Gasol and Bynum.

    Haha training camp and playing together constantly should fix that, hopefully. Sometimes Nash's vision is too good.

    Should the Lakers keep him, Bynum better learn to pass better/faster out of the double-team now that Nash will be lurking on the perimeter.

    I wouldn't count on it. His brain seems to function at a slower pace than that of a normal person.

    Seriously! Bynum's lack of ability to pass out of the double team pissed me off so much last year.

    Andrew Bynum operates in two modes:

    1) Bynum shoot ball.

    2) Bynum no shoot ball.


    He can't just pass out of a double team when he's in "Bynum shoot ball" mode. You know?

    Sad to see Nash go to my most hated franchise in sports. Ughh. But, it is nice to get some picks. I do see Tom's point in that they probably won't be great picks, but the Suns for years have had so little young depth. Maybe they'll get lucky.

    I like the draft pick this year, and the signings so far. Looking good for Gordon to be in purple and orange, and Beasley should be a solid edition. Hopefully some solid drafts over the next few years can get things turned around.

    Yeah I know, it's ridiculous. He had a good year last year but still has a lot to work on, including his bitch ass attitude. But I don't think that will ever change, and the better he gets the bigger the ego becomes.

    Don't forget they got Dragic too, I think that was a great move for them.

    The Hornets are going to match the Suns' offer for Gordon. I guess there's a chance for a sign and trade, though, if Gordon protests too much and really wants out of New Orleans.

    Can someone who understands basketball x's and o's explain how a Nash/Kobe backcourt would function? I'm not being skeptical in my question, as much as I'm genuinely trying to figure it out. For the purpose of my question, I guess we have to assume that their two bigs will still be in the starting lineup.

    Meh. I'm thrilled to have him back but can't give the front office too much credit for just making up for the terrible move that got rid of him in the first place.

    Latest I read is that he really wants out of NO. Also, Suns can front load the contract to sweeten the deal. I am hopeful.

    I don't think that is true. He is getting a max offer, so the amount should be bound by that threshold. The only way the Suns will end up with him is if the sign & trade goes through.

    I have no idea what type of system Mike Brown runs, if any, but I'd imagine Kobe to run off a lot of screens and curls. Quick, catch and shoot type plays with limited contact rather than isolating and creating on his own. He'll also reap the benefits of Nash creating opportunities with the rest of the team. I think Gasol will be used in the pick and pops, where he'll get clean looks at the top of the key all day long. When Nash sees daylight he'll drive to the hoop, attract the defender, and hand it off to Bynum for catch and dunks.

    Gasol and Bynum should minimize his defensive liabilities more than any team has. He doesn't have the foot speed to stay in front of people on the wings, but he can effectively funnel them toward the help.

    He's a great fit for any offense, but especially this Lakers team. He'll add a fluidity and rhythm to where they'll actually resemble a team, instead of just force feeding Kobe or Bynum on a given night. Ultimately he's going to make everybody's job easier, I'm excited to watch him play with such a talented roster.

    I'm sure I'm just being overly optimistic, but this is the same owner that can't get Drew Brees signed.
