Our live Google+ Hangout today at 11:30 a.m. was a roundtable discussion on the Lakers and Clippers, with the big topic being: Is the worst over for the Lakers?
Times Lakers blogger Eric Pincus says no, for one big reason: They are getting Steve Nash back.
"Nash knows how to run the Mike D'Antoni system. The Lakers have only played half a game this season with Nash, so getting him back will be huge."
And, as Pincus wrote earlier this week,
"Considering how desolate the road had become after four straight losses, the Lakers have found areas of strength. Now Gasol appears to be ready to return, with Nash, in theory, soon after.
