We could devote this slide talking about Kobe Bryant’s successful return from harm or Byron Scott’s old-timey rejection of this three-point shot.
We can touch on the potential of rookie Julius Randle, the breakout chances for Ed Davis or the over/under on”and-1!” Screams per game from Carlos Boozer (it’s 6.5).
But no. No. It is far too soon for this. The grief is still too raw.
Steve Nash–two-time MVP, offensive maestro and Decent dude–is through, according to a report from B/R’s Kevin Ding:
The latest and perhaps last setback of Steve Nash’s disappointing tenure with the Los Angeles Lakers has arrived.
Nash has been ruled out for the 2014-15 NBA year 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 doesn’t hurt any less. This is a loss for the NBA–one mitigated only marginally by how far the league gained out of Nash’s offensive genius and amusing style.
Truthfully, a wholesome Nash wouldn’t have made a difference for the Los Angeles Lakers this year–maybe not at age 40 rather than for a group that has just zero above-average defensive players. L.A. was almost certainly a lottery team in the crowded West until he went down, and it’ll remain one .
Bummer to the max.
