And having Nash out there instead of Duhon/Morris will be big for spacing and help Dwight, Kobe, and others have more room to operate.
That's exactly what I'm getting at though.... he DOESN'T need to worry about scoring as much as he has in the past. This isn't 2005.

Pound the ball into Pau and D12 and play inside/out.

Lakers still have that huge size advantage. Use it.
