“I feel as good as I’ve ever felt,” said Nash, 38, a three-time All-NBA First Team selection and two-time Most Valuable Player award winner.
The Lakers added Nash and center Dwight Howard this offseason to an already formidable roster consisting of iconic shooting guard Kobe Bryant, four-time All-Star Pau Gasol, batshit crazy 2004 Defensive Player of the Year Metta World Peace and two-time All-Star power forward Antawn Jamison.
“We’re a work in progress,” said Nash, who averaged 12.5 points and 10.7 assists per game last season. “That’s the bottom line.”
Despite weathering a tad, Nash remains an extremely capable ballplayer and the eight-time NBA All-Star is undoubtedly starving for a crown considering he’s never captured one in 16 years with the Suns and Dallas Mavericks.
Granted, as Nash noted, the Lakers likely are “a work in progress.”
Nevertheless, with Steve Nash directing what will become an extraordinarily explosive offense, the Miami Heat, Oklahoma City Thunder, Chicago Bulls and San Antonio Spurs look entirely outmanned in comparison to Los Angeles and “that’s the bottom line.”by
