On Wednesday, "First Take" debated Kobe Bryant's comments about not being a selfish player. Bryant responded to questions about whether he and new teammate Steve Nash can co-exist. Skip Bayless sees problems in the future, Nash's offenses have always run through Nash, and Bryant may not like being a cog in Nash's machine. Stephen A. Smith thinks the whole debate is insulting to a player of Bryant's caliber. What's your take?
On Wednesday, "First Take" discussed Mark Cuban's comments about the Lakers' chemistry. Cuban said that all the new stars in Los Angeles might not want to be there, and that Los Angeles has tried a star-laden strategy before. Skip Bayless thinks Cuban might be on to something, but Stephen A. Smith thinks talent will eventually win out, although it might not be this season. What's your take?
Steve Nash has achieved a lot in his career, but he's never won an NBA championship. That all could change now that he's been traded to the Los Angeles Lakers.

The Suns undoubtedly will miss Nash, but did they get enough to soften the blow of his departure?
