Which Los Angeles Lakers Star Will Most Benefit from Acquisition of Steve Nash?

Steve Nash will be putting on the gold and purple this season, which means quite a few things for the Los Angeles Lakers and the former Suns star.

It's hard to imagine that a basketball player will be playing well into his 40s as it seems Nash will be, but for a guy who has averaged 11 assists a game ever since he came to the dry heat in Phoenix, he should be able to do just fine for himself with three top-tier players as his passing targets.

Kobe Bryant is going to have to change his game for Nash, and there's no telling if he'll be willing to do that, but the other two star players that the Lakers employ should be loving their new point guard.

Most of all, Mike Brown should love the fact that Nash knows how to run an offense more or less with no coaching, pushing or prodding—which could mean he keeps his job longer than anyone thought.

Of course, for Lakers fans, anything less than a title or two over the life of Nash's contract is going to be a disappointment, but that's definitely not out of the realm of possibility.

So, let's see how the other Lakers players should be faring once Nash starts dropping dimes all over the Staples Center.
