MANILA, Philippines – The Los Angeles Lakers today formally introduced two-time NBA MVP Steve Nash as their new starting point guard.

The 38-year-old Nash was acquired in a sign-and-trade deal with the Phoenix Suns, who are in rebuilding mode this season.

Nash admitted that he never saw himself wearing the Lakers’ purple and gold, but he couldn’t pass up a chance to win a championship.

Nash will team up with another former MVP, Kobe Bryant, in the Lakers backcourt. -- Dateline Philippines, ANC, July 12, 2012.
