But last I checked defense wins.
And last I checked Nash isn't by any means a defensive upgrade. To continue, Lin isn't exactly a defensive stalwart and our best perimeter defender is a year away from regaining form (which he needed to improve in certain areas also).
Add the fact that STAT in relation to his $ is overrated, and he too may be a defensive liability.
That means FOUR positions are lacking on D, with ONE (Melo) receiving a pass due to his offense.
That's a recipe for disaster. That in no way is an improvement thus we'll be a step back from where we were which is nowhere close.
Nash may be a consolation, but he ain't the answer.
