Re: NBA Offseason Thread 2012
Why do people keep saying Pau isn't as good as he used to be, when he obviously IS. he's hardly regressed, he just had a smaller role on the offense last season. he's still a great PF, much better than most people give him credit for, and his footwork in the paint is still easily the best in the league. He's had two bad playoffs in a row, but a large part of that has to do with is how he's been used the last two years. Obviously with Nash his role will be a lot easier to play in as he's got an elite passer passing to him.
Oh and lol @ Nash regressing. In what way? he's always been awful at defense, but he remains the best passer(yes, better than both Rondo and CP3, look whose he's been passing to and compared to those two), best pick n roller, incredible shooter, and just an elite floor general. what more do we need from him?
Kobe has regressed, but remains the best at his position and still one of the best in the NBA. k, I'm fine with that.
