We could devote this slip referring to Kobe Bryant’s triumphant return from harm or Byron Scott’s old-timey rejection of the three-point shot.
We could touch on the potential of newcomer Julius Randle, the breakout chances for Ed Davis or the over/under on”and-1!” Screams per game from Carlos Boozer (it is 6.5).
But no. No. It’s far too soon for that. The grief is still too raw.
Steve Nash–two-time MVP, offensive maestro and good dude–is through, according to a report from B/R’s Kevin Ding:
The latest and possibly last drawback of Steve Nash’s disappointing tenure with the Los Angeles Lakers has come.
Nash has been ruled out to the 2014-15 NBA year because of recurring nerve injury in his back, according to league sources.
Even if we all saw this coming long ago, the stark reality that among those game’s most transformative trendsetters is completed does not hurt any less. This is a loss for the NBA–one mitigated only mildly how much the league gained from Nash’s offensive genius and entertaining style.
Truthfully, a healthy Nash would not have made a difference for the Los Angeles Lakers this season –not at age 40 and not for a team which has just zero above-average defensive players. L.A. was almost definitely a lottery group in the crowded West until he went down, and it’ll stay one .
Bummer into the max.
