As Steve Nash makes his return to the Valley, many people will wonder if the Suns were right to let him go in the first place.
After all, the Suns are a paltry 15-30 on the season, fired their head coach, and generally seem to be heading in the wrong direction.
However, the man signed to replace Nash was Goran Dragic, and the 26-year-old has put together a decent year for the team, averaging career bests in points, rebounds and assists. Is he Nash? No. But then again, maybe the Suns are better off that way.
Because when you look at it, Nash's first season with the Lakers has been nothing more than a disappointment. The 38-year-old is averaging the fewest number of points since his fourth year in the league, his assist total is lower than it has been in nearly a decade. Furthermore the Lakers, thought by many to be the favorite to win the NBA title, also fired their coach and are currently 20-25. If the playoffs started today, they would be watching them on TV.
So who got the better end of this situation?
