Dave McMenamin's post on LA Lakers | Latest updates on Sulia
If the Lakers beat MIA, it will give them a 5-2 road trip and wins vs. the Heat & OKC. Yet Nash said it doesn't ...
Steve Nash said that even that scenario -- a 25-27 record heading into the final 30 games of the season and being able to say that they beat both NBA Finals teams from a year ago in a two-week period -- wouldn't mean that the Lakers had put their past struggles behind them and would be ready to march on towards success.
"It’s all relative," Nash said. "I think this season is going to be a disappointment if we don’t win a championship, on the other hand when you look at what we faced this year, it’s probably unlikely that we can find that top gear and what it takes to win a championship.
"The key for us is to plug away, try to get better and you never know. You never know what happens in this league and if this team finds a real rhythm or groove at the end of the season, we can be a real tough team if we get in the playoffs.
"So, anything is possible, but relative to what we expected in the offseason when you look on paper, we’ve had nothing if not inconsistency when you look at the whole environment."
