As Lakers head coach Byron Scott begins a new process with a young team led by a handful of seasoned veterans, it’s the perfect moment to discuss expectations for every player wearing the purple and gold ahead of the 2014-15 season.
Lakers General Manager Mitch Kupchak said both Kobe Bryant and Steve Nash are looking healthy and believes they will have great comebacks.
In this week’s Open Forum, we asked: ‘who will be the Lakers’ best defensive player this season?’ and 47 percent agreed it would be Johnson, while Davis gathered 24.32 percent of the votes.
There are two basic schools of thought surrounding Nash’s upcoming season. The optimistic view is that he is completely recovered, in which case he will most likely start for the Lakers. The pessimistic outlook, on the other hand, points to his body not being able to cope with the rigors of a NBA season.
