Kobe Bryant and Steve Nash put together a nice initial statement in the Los Angeles Lakers' preseason opener on Monday night. Both had limited roles against the Denver Nuggets, but impressed nonetheless in the Lakers' 98-95 win.

Per Lakers Nation's Serena Winters, Kobe found it to be an absolute pleasure to share the floor with Nash:

Bryant had 13 points and five assists in just 21 minutes of play, while Nash dropped 11 in the bucket and dished out five assists in 20 minutes of play.

Seeing them both work as such a cohesive unit on the floor will bring a smile to Lakers fans' faces. If the future Hall-of-Fames can build on that comfort level heading into the 2014-15 NBA season, the Lakers will have the perfect weapons to silence their doubters going forward.
