We could spend this slide talking about Kobe Bryant’s triumphant return from harm or Byron Scott’s old-timey rejection of this three-point shot.
We could touch on the capacity of rookie Julius Randle, the breakout possibilities 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 much 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 perhaps last setback 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 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–one mitigated only marginally by how much the league gained from Nash’s offensive genius and amusing style.
Truthfully, a wholesome Nash would not have made a difference for the Los Angeles Lakers this season –not at age 40 rather than for a team that has precisely zero law-abiding defensive players. L.A. was almost definitely a lottery team in the West before he went down, and it is going to remain one .
Bummer to the max.
