Phoenix Suns point guard Steve Nash is now former Suns point guard Steve Nash, as he's headed to Los Angeles to play for the Lakers.

According to ESPN, it was Nash's decision to join the team he's been battling for years -- the same team that denied the Suns a spot in the NBA finals just a few years ago.

Now Nash -- a two-time MVP -- is joining Kobe Bryant and company in L.A., in an apparent attempt to win a championship.

This morning's question: Out of all the teams Nash could've joined, is putting on the Lakers jersey akin to treason, or just a good move by Nash?
