From an outsiders perspective, the newly forged partnership of Steve Nash and Kobe Bryant with the Los Angeles Lakers must be an appetizing sight, especially if you are an aging free agent still looking for his first NBA Championship. Such is that case for Grant Hill, who according to Sports 620 KTAR's John Gambadoro is leaning towards moving to Tinsel Town.
Per Sports 620 KTAR sports radio talk show host John Gambadoro on Twitter:

On paper, the Lakers have to be seen as a serious contender for the title next year with the players they already have, but with the addition of a solid role player like Hill would likely be welcomed in L.A. Still, that would be a very aged group, which the Lakers tried back in 2003-04 with guys like Karl Malone and Gary Peyton, which led to a loss in the playoffs.
It will be interesting to see how this all pans out.
