Los Angeles Lakers: 66-1

We could devote this slip talking about Kobe Bryant’s triumphant return from injury or Byron Scott’s old-timey rejection of this three-point shot.
We could touch on the capacity 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 is far too soon for this. The grief is still too sore.
Steve Nash–two-time MVP, offensive maestro and Decent dude–is through, according to a report from B/R’s Kevin Ding:
The most up-to-date and possibly last drawback of Steve Nash’s disappointing tenure with the Los Angeles Lakers has arrived.
Nash was ruled out for the 2014-15 NBA season due to recurring nerve damage in his back, according to league sources.
Even if all of us saw this coming long ago, the stark reality that one of the game’s most transformative trendsetters is completed does not hurt any less. This is a loss for the NBA–just one mitigated only marginally how much the league gained from Nash’s offensive genius and amusing style.
Truthfully, a wholesome Nash wouldn’t have made a real difference for the Los Angeles Lakers this year–not at age 40 and not for a team which has precisely zero law-abiding defensive players. L.A. was almost definitely a lottery team in the crowded West until he went down, and it’ll stay one .
Bummer into the max.
