Steve Nash On LeBron James: ‘He Would Obviously Be A Dream Teammate’

With ample cap space this off-season, the Los Angeles Lakers will pursue the biggest free agents in the market including LeBron James and Carmelo Anthony.

While there have been reports of the Lakers looking to shed Steve Nash’s contract to create more financial flexibility, the former two-time MVP says LeBron “would be a dream teammate” according to HoopsHype:

“It’d be amazing. I think anyone in the league would say they’d love to play with LeBron. He’s not only the best player in the league, but he’s also an incredible teammate and very unselfish. He would obviously be a dream teammate.”

While the consensus seems to be that James will eventually re-sign with the Miami Heat, there was a recent report suggesting his free agency decision is up in the air. With that being said, the Lakers are prepared to go “all out” in hopes of landing not only the four-time MVP, but Anthony as well.

After the worst season since moving to Los Angeles, the Lakers hope to maximize Kobe Bryant’s final two season in the NBA. With the Western Conference getting tougher each season, the franchise will need to surround the five-time champion with as much help as possible just to get out of the conference if they want to win their 17th championship.

    • Badazztj12

      I love this line up

    • joe sho

      This line up will barely make it to the 6th spot if that..

    • Lakers Man Dan

      What where is Steve Nash???BTW that’s a seventh seed in the West and a first round sweep.Bye.

      • Lewis Velazquez

        I gotta strongly disagree. This could be a potential contender with the right coach…

        • kookiebuger

          Highly unlikely.

        • comrade24

          it all depends on what level Kobe comes back at. Depending on his level of play, Kobe can drag any 4 other schmucks into the playoffs with him. The other players mentioned in that lineup won’t make them a championship contender IMO but they could definitely compete. All depends on the Mamba.

          Personally, i’m hoping they’re able to land Melo and Kobe comes back at an elite level. Then we’ll be a contender and no one will see us coming.

      • Kellycrossover

        I agree

    • fuck nash man

      Xavier, Farmer, and Nick gots to go.

      • http://rantsofascorpio.wordpress.com/ Evan

        Nick Young is a fan favorite who provides a great scoring punch off the bench. FarmAr provides energy and solid PG play. Keeping those two is a wise move

        • comrade24

          Farmar’s +/- was the highest of anyone on the team last year. We were clearly better with him on the court. Too bad injuries derailed his season. Although, if they hadn’t we probably wouldn’t have Julius Randle either.

      • nlruizjr

        everyone is entitled to their opinion, right or wrong !!!!

      • DKWTTY

        Farmar is good 3 point shooter and solid backup. Him and Nick together just work…there’s a reason they are referred to as peanut butter and jelly lol. Crazy talk to get rid of them.

      • Shaka Saphir

        Getting rid of all three would be an idiot move because Nick is instance offense with th,e second unit and Farmar is the beeter overall PG between he and Marshall. Get rid of Nash,bring in Melo,
        Ariza and Lowry as a starter if possible.

    • Blake Mullins

      So…..where is Nash?

    • sway

      Dude thays a shitty ass line – up that would get us nowhere smh. See dumbass e’s like you be up in the offices right now producing another shitty season. What are you playing for with that line-up? Food for thought.

      • lakerfan

        Dont call me a dumbass fuck boy.. im just posting my opinions… And some of those players are the best ones avaiable out there…. you are probally a delusional fan that wants kyrie,Lebron,Melo and a whole fucking all star line up that would never happen in a million years

    • http://rantsofascorpio.wordpress.com/ Evan

      I like the line up 1-4. Pau at C is a shirt term stop gap, but we need interior defense. Asik/M Gasol in 2015. Also, our bench is a season or two, developmentally, from really taking it to the next level.

    • Steven Chhan

      i been wanting ariza back since he left…

    • Lakers Fan

      Am I the only one who thinks Clarkson can be our starting PG?

      • nlruizjr

        He looks good on video and possibly could beat out Marshall, Idk about Farmar and another thing is the college competition, Mizzou is not UCLA, so I’d have to reserve judgement, but yeah he does look good !!!!

      • VillainKing

        Me too hope Clarkson and Kane will both step-up in their game..

    • Moneyfat

      Replace gasol with love and I think this line up would role Paul is to soft in the paint!

      • http://www.foxhilldesign.com Josh

        Love isn’t exactly tough in the paint.

    • ADox

      good line up, we just need to have the right coach. I am sorry to disagree that this team will be knocked out early in the playoffs.

    • ediveder

      PG – Lowry
      SG – Kobe
      SF – Randle
      PF – Love
      C – Gasol

      Bench:
      PG – Clarkson / Farmar or Marshall
      SG – Bazemore
      SF – Ariza
      PF – Kelly
      C – Sacre/Gortat

      • Jan Rey

        Randle at the SF position? You must be smoking something

    • Shaka Saphir

      That starting lineup won’t get it,not with the overall strength of the Western Conference currently. They need at least one more star in the lineup to go with Kobe,Gasol, Lowry & Randle. The most likely star to join them would be Melo. Put Melo in that starting lineup in place of Ariza and you have a contender. For defensive & added offensive power,you could swope Ariza in place of Henry.

      lebron james

  • Kyle

    Nash is not smart enough to understand LBJ needs Nash to retire to help pay LeBron.

    • hookedonnews

      Oh, I think he understands perfectly. If you heard the recent interview in NY he said it would make sense to trade him. However, he’s not going to walk away from nearly $10 million to make it easy on billionaire owners or fans who don’t respect him to pave the way for another player to be acquired. He is a philanthropist, but he’s not an idiot. He was speaking rhetorically when he said LeBron would be a dream teammate. I imagine 99% of the players in the NBA would agree, but none of them would retire and leave that kind of money on the table to facilitate his coming to their team.

      • smale45

        perfectly said.

  • fuck nash man

    the fuck is nash talking about? his ass gots to go, whether through retirement, stretch provision, or traded. he gots to go.

    • Al Haldie

      what a mouth..not real bright..

      • J King

        Oh you want the bright version. Then, here it goes.

        What the fuck are you looking for Nash for? His lazy ass has to go by putting himself out to grass. He knows he’s done but doesn’t want to give up 9 million? I know it’s sorry ass Dumb Jim’s fault after they got axed by the bloody Nazi jew commish. But come on.. gimme a break. That Sun’s deal that shipped Nash was close to scam.

    • Chrmngblly

      Except, now that we are stuck with him, what if he can play like the Nash we thought we traded for?

  • Thoughtso

    I thought lowry was going to the heat.

    • http://rantsofascorpio.wordpress.com/ Evan

      It’s a rumor. Just like everything right now. Teams can’t speak on any FA until tomorrow.

  • http://www.foxhilldesign.com Josh

    I guess he would be, but if Lebron took his talents to Staples, Nash would be stretched the same day.

  • Richad

    Look at how future players stack up against the rest of the NBA and/or the top teams to beat this year and the next, including the Clippers.

  • kookiebuger

    The Lakers need to rebuild but are trying to delay the inevitable. Melo is a longshot and LeBron I can almost guarantee isn’t coming here, Lowry,Deng,Ariza,Gortat,etc. would be nice pick ups but that won’t push the Lakers over the top against top tier teams like OKC,Spurs,Clippers,Houston and other playoff teams Warriors, Portland,Memphis, Dallas, potentially the Pelicans (if they can stay healthy), and potential the Suns. The Lakers 2015 1st round pick is top 5 protected try to get it and try to pick up free agents next offseason.

  • Lakers Fan

    Why are they even asking these players about LeBron coming to the Lakers? He isn’t coming and the Lakers would be wise to look past him. Melo is more realistic, but that is a long possibility as well. In the mean time, Nash shouldn’t be asked about playing with anybody due to him only playing a handful of games these last two seasons.

    • comrade24

      i feel you about Lebron. Sick of hearing that Melo is a longshot though. How does anyone figure? We’re the only team in pursuit of him that doesn’t have to clear cap room and dismantle a roster to get him. We have a meeting set up with him already, and the FO knows how to do these things. We have a lot to offer Melo and he already has a home in LA.

      • Swagzilla

        All the Bulls have to do is amnesty Boozer and Melo takes a pay cut and they are an instant contenders, the Rockets apparently have a Lin trade established but won’t pull the trade unless LeBron or Melo says they will sign there making them a top 3 team in the West, the Lakers have Kobe coming off a major injury who will be 36 when the season starts who’s been out for a 1 1/2 with a supporting cast of Nash, Sacre, and Randle. That’s hardly a contender but it would be a playoff team (1st/2nd round exit).

        • comrade24

          Really? Rose hasn’t really played in two years. He would have a better defensive team but wouldn’t be anywhere closer to a title there IMO. Derrick Rose is brittle and Melo has also said that it’s also about where him and his family wants to live. Chicago is the murder capital, not the best place to raise children.

          • Swagzilla

            The Bulls still manage to make it to the 1st/2nd round without Rose and no go to scorer with Melo they can mask his defense (with DPOY Noah) and have a go to scorer while Rose can play as the 2nd option and try to stay healthy plus he’s only 25. Melo is rich I doubt he has to worry about crimes and stuff like that he does have security like Kobe, KD,LeBron,MJ,etc.

          • Swagzilla

            Plus they play in a weaker division.

    • Thomas Klein

      Your so sure, I remember negitive people telling me we would neve get Shaq too, and guess what we signed him, the truth is , you don’t know crap.

  • ResignCorona

    i seriously doubt lebron would want to go to LA even if i’m a fan. they would still not be a title contender team. kobe is just done, nash too. now who would support lebron? even if they get carmelo still they would not make it since they lack a good center.

    • http://www.foxhilldesign.com Josh

      PG – Blake | Marshall | Clarkson
      SG – Bryant | Bazemore
      SF – James |
      PF – Randle | Kelly
      C – Gasol | Sacre

      You don’t think that team–or some variation of it–could contend?

      • Swagzilla

        Bad bench and poor defensive team.

        • http://www.foxhilldesign.com Josh

          I’m so tired of this notion that you have to have a great bench to be successful in the NBA. All I need from that bench is to give the starters a few minutes off to start the 2nd and 4th quarters. Bazemore as the sixth man to provide energy, Marshall to distribute the ball, Kelly to knock down shots, and Sacre to take up space. If healty, that is a SOLID 9-man rotation and easily better than any Lebron has ever played with.

      • ResignCorona

        it won’t be a contender, believe me. lebron would not play with that line up. it would still be a dream to even consider lebron going to the lakers.

      • MustardsOffTheHotDog

        Contender. Some of you don’t seem to realize just how good LeBron is. Without him I don’t think the Heat win half their games this past year. He makes any team an instant title contender. Just surround him with the right role players.

      • Thomas Klein

        Bledsoe/Marshall/Clarkson
        Kobe/Henry/Bazemore
        Carmelo/Nick Young/
        Randle/Ryan Kelly
        Gortat/ Sacre/Jermane O’Neal

        Plan on us trying for a point guard, small forward, and center
        We could still see Gasol if he’s willing to take a big pay cut

        • http://www.foxhilldesign.com Josh

          Wake up and consider that things like salary caps exist.

      • Chrmngblly

        Kelly is no PF. He is a SF. He may also backup Bryant at the 2.

        • http://www.foxhilldesign.com Josh

          Uh…Ryan Kelly is a power forward. He can play some SF. He’s basically a young Dirk.

          • Chrmngblly

            Oops. Forgot about him.

          • VillainKing

            Chrmngay what are you talking Kelly is a PF not a SF..stop making comments that not accurate and right..FUCK YOU Chrmngay suck my large dick!!!heheheh..

          • Chrmngblly

            You have a very small penis, VanillaKling. People with small penises try to have the most ferocious sounding names, I’ve found. Cowboys with the biggest hats have the smallest herds.

          • VillainKing

            heheheh..are you jealous on my name because your name Chrmngay is so GAY..try my large dick Chrmngay and you will be addicted..heheheh!!!

    • Thomas Klein

      Go Blow… What proof do you have that Kobe won’t be able to score 20-25 per night , NONE, you just a POS Hater.

      • ResignCorona

        in fact i’m a die hard kobe fan but i just face reality.

  • Ryan LeBraun

    What would be the real dream, and a wish come true, is if Nash retired. Bye.

    • hookedonnews

      If you think Nash retiring would make an appreciable difference for the Lakers you are dreaming. Unless they had a shot at LeBron they probably wouldn’t be that much better off. No one really believes LeBron is leaving Miami, and they have the money to sign Melo if they want him. Doubt that he’s coming because he can see that this team is rebuilding, and if he wants to be in that situation he can stay in NY and get a lot more money to do it. Of course, if they could get both Melo & LeBron they would trade or waive Nash if necessary. No question about that. I just doubt that that will happen. Don’t think they want Lowry, so there’s no reason not to keep Nash and hope that he can give them a reasonable number of games while he’s mentoring Marshall & Clarkson. Nash is not going to retire, but he’ll be gone after next season when the next free agent bunch becomes available. You might as well be patient because it’s going to take time to rebuild the Lakers with or without Steve Nash.

      • Thomas Klein

        How do you figure that the have the money to sign Melo? The Lakers are the ONLY team that doesn’t have to gut a roster to sign Anthony, the Only team, I repeat, the only team, don’t believe me, check out the salaries on the teams, and the remember that the salary cap is 65 million this year, and any team over cap only has the mid level exception, which is 5.5 million per year . The lakers could sign Anthony, AND Lowrey or Bledsloe, and Gortat or Hawes and still have their mid level.

        • hookedonnews

          You misunderstood my comment. I was talking about the Lakers having the money to sign Melo. I don’t think they do have the money to sign Melo & Bledsoe because he’s going to get max money from Phoenix. They will match anything he’s offered. Haven’t seen any interest from Lakers in Gortat, Lowry or Hawes but that doesn’t mean they couldn’t decide to go after them. I think they are more interested in players like Love, Aldridge, Irving, etc. who will be available in the next couple of years.

        • Chrmngblly

          Actually you are wrong. The HEAT now have the salary cap to afford LBJ…:-) —-without cutting anyone

    • MJFORLIFE

      Are you Stupid or young

  • hookedonnews

    Nash, Kobe & LeBron. That would be one entertaining team to watch if Nash & Kobe could be 100%. I think it’s a bit premature to be thinking championship unless we are able to get LeBron. We have no coach, an unknown roster, and question marks about the health of Kobe & Nash. However, I’m optimistic that we’ll be able to get some top free agents. It just may not be this year.

  • DKWTTY

    Can we just get rid of Steve Nash already. What’s the point in keeping this guy, is he going to be teaching our younger guys who to shoot properly or something? That’s all he’s good for at this point and it pains me to say this cause I like the guy.

    • Thomas Klein

      No we can’t, so can you just shut up, you just can’t waive a player that has a contract. Get it???

      • DKWTTY

        Actually they can so get your facts right or shut up.
