The Los Angeles Lakers were on the precipice of disarray ever since succumbing to the Oklahoma City Thunder in the Western Conference Semifinals. That is, until Mitch Kupchak jilted the NBA landscape on Wednesday by pulling the trigger on a sign-and-trade for two-time league MVP point guard, Steve Nash.
