It's a shot that will make some retch, and some jump with giddy glee. Whatever your affiliation, it's still a jarring sight. And though we've had issues with the "COUNT THA RINGZZ" crew in the past, a basketball genius like Steve Nash running a show that involves Kobe Bryant, Andrew Bynum and (especially) Pau Gasol is so more intriguing and appealing than him wasting his final years on a middling crew in Phoenix, or helping in Toronto's latest rebuilding attempt.

And, sorry Dan, it's better than the bloody Knicks.

The 2012-13 NBA schedule has yet to be released, so we haven't confirmed if it's 75 or 76 of Los Angeles' 82 regular-season games will be nationally televised. In the meantime, here's a picture of Steve Nash hanging out on Nash Street, located near the team's practice facility in El Segundo, Calif.
