Nash to the Lake Show....game over. Kobe, Nash, Bynum and Pau, there have been championship teams with less talent than this core. Nash defies the odds, he is a 38 white point guard that looks like a beach boy in their hay-day. Canadian born and raised, then attended Santa Clara he has been an outlier his whole life.
What do I look for in a point guard? They have to be tough, black, swagger to take over a game and be somewhat of a thug. The best point guards in the NBA are a bit of all these things, other than Nash. This is why Nash is perfect for the Lakers and Kobe. Any thug point guard with a massive ego (*Prime example=Russell Westbrook) wouldn't work well with Kobe. But, because Nash is experienced, respectable and cares about the team more than his individual self, he will pair great with Kobe. Now Kobe won't have to be the only player not over seven feet tall on the Lakers that can actually score in the fourth. Nash will just make Bynum even better, and hopefully bring Pau back to his old self. I really hope Bynum has a massive year so we can stop hearing about Dwight Howard every time we turn on the TV.
Best backcourt in the NBA....The BROOKLYN Nets? Never thought I would say that but I love it. Brooklyn is back on the map! Jay-Z congrats HOV, Joe Johnson and D-Will....Awesome! Playoffs in Brooklyn, it's about time. Deron Williams will show the country why he is still a top 3 point guard. He had his moments in Utah but lets be real what are you going to do in Utah? Brooklyn is his time to shine with all the spotlights and Joe Johnson at his side. This team is legit if Brook Lopez can learn to defend. They are a top 5 seed in the East no doubt. The East is stacked, c'mon West....step it up! This Nets team is going to be awesome. D-Will, top 3 point guard. Joe Johnson, all star. Gerald Wallace can guard anyone. Kris Humphries-Kardashian isn't bad but that's why they got Mr. Energy Reggie Evans to push Kristopher Kardashian. New sign at the top of the Barclays Center in Brooklyn....NO KARDASHIANS ALLOWED. Brook Lopez is an all star caliber center and they still have THE Marshon Brooks. From none other than Providence. Marshon is a stud and will challenge for 6th man of the year. D-Will for MVP, Brooks for 6th man. The Nets are back, I can't wait!
