One of the bigger offseason acquisitions so far has been the Los Angeles Lakers adding All-Star point guard Steve Nash considering this team needed a true point guard for a while. The Lakers tried a variety of point guards but those players were just not up to par to what the team needed. Last season, the team saw Bryant at times dribbling the ball for most of the shot-clock before taking a shot. But now with Nash in the fold, players such as Kobe Bryant, Pau Gasol, Andrew Bynum, and the rest of the Lakers team will benefit from a player like Nash and make Los Angeles a team to watch.  Of course seeing an improved Lakers team next season does hoist the them from a team on the decline to a team back in true title contention and a threat to the other Western Conference powers such as the San Antonio Spurs. Tony Parker and Boris Diaw, who played with Nash in Phoenix, weighed in on the former NBA MVP joining the Lakers and both feel he will have a big impact with Los Angeles next season.
