Luckily for sports fans, the NBA free agency period has created a lot of excitement and buzz in a time when baseball is the only sport in season. There have been many crazy moves, even though we haven’t even seen how the Dwight Howard situation will play out.

With players now able to officially sign offer sheets, expect the madness to continue as several GMs will have to make several multi-million dollar decisions that could shape their respective franchises.

Personally, I am an ESPN Insider and constantly check the Insider section rumors (NBD), but my favorite transactions are the ones that nobody knows about, not even Chris Broussard. Mitch Kupchak, GM of the Lakers, is notorious for making these moves, and shocked many when he completed a sign and trade for two-time MVP Steve Nash.

If the Lakers are able to add some depth, many think they will be able to compete with Oklahoma City in the west, and even the Heat in the NBA finals. With this newfound excitement in LA, Nash has been greeted exceptionally and Laker fans cannot wait to watch a Hall of Fame point guard run their offense. Check out this week’s Video of the Week to see just how excited Laker fans are for their new point guard.
