Steve Nash Says Dwight Howard Can Be Great In Mike D’Antoni’s System


Amid all the speculation about Dwight Howard’s future, his Lakers point guard from last season thinks Dwight can still prosper in L.A.

Nash told the New York Daily News that he wants Howard back as a teammate, and that Howard can be great in D’Antoni’s offense.

“He played Mike’s offense, pretty much, in Orlando. I think we can make it work. We need to surround him with some shooters, but I think he’ll be great in it,” Nash said.

Nash also thinks that if the Lakers can remain healthy next season, they can really make some noise.

“We were just scratching the surface last year before all of the injuries,” Nash said. “We think we can form something really special after having a year under our belt and going into training camp together.”
