I have long been a big fan of Steve Nash as a player. he's a great point guard and he plays the game the right way. As a Lakers fan I'm extremely pleased that we have signed him, what are your views on him signing? do you think he's too old?

Although Nash is old, but not old enough to make great plays. He is still a great shooter and a great passer. He is a master of pick and roll and we can see that during Amare's time and even Gortats. The coach should find a way to take advantage of the the play involving the star players, Gasol, Bynum and Bryant. Most likely, the play will go to Gasol since he already know how to do this play but Bynum should learn this too. I also think the guard-guard pick and roll is difficult so Bryant will still get his iso plays. It's a big addition to the Lakers team and hopefully his potential will be capitalized.

Steve Nash will be a big factor for the Lakers despite his age. He is so skilled and smart that His age would not really matter. Remember, He does not have to score that much unlike when He was with the Suns. Kobe can focus on scoring rather than orchestrating plays. His game would now be back to when He would lead the league in scoring. The Lakers are now the heavy favorites to win it all next year.

I am a fan of Steve Nash. His kind of play can suit any team in the leagues because he plays team basketball. So I think he will surely have a positive impact on the Lakers. Good move in part for the Lakers as they solidify their run for a championship next season and good choice for Steve Nash as he gives himself an opportunity to get a ring. A mutually beneficial move. I'm going for the Lakers this coming season because I love Steve Nash.
