Comparing Every Los Angeles Lakers Player to a Former Teammate of Steve Nash
Jeff Hanisch-US PRESSWIRE

After some off-season wheeling and dealing, the Los Angeles Lakers will be bringing a revamped lineup into the 2012-2013 season. With such a high number of new rotation players (seven, to be exact) the Lakers coaching staff will need to define roles that best utilize each player on the roster to their full extent.

For years, the Lakers have been a franchise lacking a great point guard until the offseason acquisition of Steve Nash, one of the best point guards of the last decade or so and, even at 38, still among the top lead guards in the NBA.

Throughout his career with the Suns and the Mavericks, Nash has been able to rack up assists to a vast number of teammates by setting them up in a perfect position to score. With that said, let's take a look at how every one of Nash's teammates on the 2012-13 Lakers roster compares to a former teammate of his in either Phoenix or Dallas.

Note: Comparisons are not made based on talent, size or stats, but more on position and role in the offense. The list begins with rotation players and advances to starters with the greatest roles.
