Steve Nash is NOT the Lakersí Answer
The NBA is getting younger and the talent is faster and more athletic. While Steve Nash in his prime was easily on pf the best point guards in the game, this is no longer the case. He can still create shots, help his team and provide veteran leadership but that’s not all that the Lakers need. They have veteran leadership in Kobe Bryant, and Sessions can be a much better point guard once he has a chance to really fall in line with the team. We've seen that Sessions creates shots easily, when he's playing aggressively.
The biggest reason the Lakers don’t need Nash though is that they don’t need someone that slow. We just saw what the Oklahoma Thunder did to Lakers, and what the Denver Nuggets tried to do. The Lakers need the young talent that will keep them in the game.
Another reason the Lakers can not get Steve Nash is his salary. They are already looking to cut down on the payroll, not increase it. They would need to trade Pau, Bynum or Metta, or amnesty one of them to even make Nash a fiscally feasible choice.
Nash is still a great player and can lead a team in the NBA, but he is not the right fit for the Lakers.
