Despite a star-studded cast, the Los Angeles Lakers are off to their worst start in 34 years.

Hoping to avoid their first 0-4 start since the franchise moved to Los Angeles, the Lakers will again be without Steve Nash on Sunday night when they host the Detroit Pistons.

Nash, who totaled nine points and eight assists in the first two games, sat out Friday's 105-95 loss to the Clippers with a bruised leg. The Lakers announced on Saturday that the 38-year-old point guard has a small fracture in his left leg and will be out for at least another week.

WESTWOOD, Calif. – The Pistons are 0-2, the Lakers 0-3. Guess which story is drawing more attention?

After somehow adding both Steve Nash and Dwight Howard to the Kobe Bryant-Pau Gasol core over the off-season despite being hopelessly capped out, the Lakers were supposed to win 70 games … in the minds of Lakers fans, at least.

So starting 0-3 for the first time in 34 years has registered on Richter scales in La-La Land.

When the only two 30-somethings on the Pistons first came into the league, the NBA West was the go-go conference and the East was all bump and grind.

Thirteen years after Corey Maggette was drafted and 10 years since Tayshaun Prince joined the Pistons, not much has changed in their eyes.
