Los Angeles Lakers point guard Steve Nash says there’s a different feeling in the air at training camp this season than what he sensed last year.
Hmmmmm. I wonder what oh what could have caused the difference?
Here’s what Nash had to say when he was asked about how things felt two days into training camp:
It feels good. Last year was tough. Just from the start, it was hard to feel a lot of positive energy. It always seemed like a challenge. Whereas this year, it feels a little bit more like a team. I know it’s early and who knows how good we’ll be, but the early energy and vibe is really positive (ESPN).
Not only was last year unsuccessful, it was also painful. It just wasn’t a lot of fun. It wasn’t as positive as it should be as an experience. So, there’s a lot to play for us.
Nash, the NBA’s oldest player, hopes the Lakers can fully implement Mike D’Antoni’s system in 2013, a task they fell short of in 2012. The Lakers have an uphill battle to face, though, with star Kobe Bryant recovering from Achilles surgery.
