He could still be significant on a team where he got to play his brand of basketball which isn't as a spot up shooter.

Yeah he could have been. But now his injuries and everything he is done.

Serious question - what's the difference between Nash and Blake with this year's Lakers? Lakers seem to be just a tad better with Blake on the floor...

On another note, imagine if he signed with Miami... that team was PERFECT for him - shooters everywhere, up-tempo playstyle, etc. just like during his Suns days. Only liability is on defense but they'll probably be blowing teams out for that to matter.

I disagree.

His brand of basketball, when tailored to make allowances for his age, increasingly limited athleticism and increasingly poor defense, is losing basketball. Just what we saw with PHX the last couple years.

People put too much stock in his stats the past couple seasons. If you watched him on a daily basis, it was apparent that he's shot. That franchise structured everything they did... personnel moves, strategy, everything... in an effort to keep him on the floor, generating stats and getting meat in the seats.

While he still might be capable of putting up stats, it will never happen on a team with any chance at winning anything.

And please don't take this as an indictment of his career or hatred of the guy. It's just that Father Time remains undefeated.

Do you really think two chuckers can coexist on the same team? They both have huge egos and want to shoot every time down the court

What they need is a player like Mike James. Someone who can defend perimeter oriented players. And someone who can shoot the three like a Battier type player.

I just want everyone to remember and acknowledge how pathetic the Lakers were against the Clippers with Kobe being the point guard.

What part of Lebron needs the ball all the time don't you understand?

The reason Wade let Lebron have the ball was because he could play off ball while Lebron proven he can't.

Not at all. I blame the Lakers front office for making stupid personnel decisions.
