The Los Angeles Lakers gave up some draft picks, but in getting Steve Nash they have added a vital piece to another Championship run. Nash is a point guard that the Lakers really have not had in a long time. He will take some of the pressure off of Kobe Bryant and that will help the Lakers out a lot. Nash and Kobe together should make a tough duo to deal with on a nightly basis. This trade has helped make the Los Angeles Lakers instant contenders for an NBA Championship.
Rumors have it that the Lakers are not done yet either in improving their team. I do not know what direction the Lakers will go next, but the Nash trade was huge for them. They will be a much improved team and Nash will help them where they need it the most point guard. It will be interesting to see how well Kobe and Nash work together. I do not see a problem as both players just want to win Championships.
