The Lakers finished last season 3rd in the Western Conference with Steve Blake and Ramon Sessions at point guard. They beat the Nuggets in the 1st round but fell to the Thunder in the 2nd round.
With Steve Nash though, what can we expect from the Lakers this season?
When determining that, you need to answer the question about how Steve Nash playing with Kobe Bryant and the rest of the Lakers. While they may struggle on defense, I don’t think they will have a problem at all playing together. I do also think that Pau Gasol will be able to bounce back, if he’s still on the Lakers when the season starts.
