Lakers Need To Utilize Steve Nash While Their Offense Evolves

Last season, Lakers head coach Mike Brown opted to go with the "Kobe System" while his team was still figuring out the then-new offense. It didn't quite work out smoothly, as Kobe scored 40 or more points in the first four games and the Lakers split those contests.
