Steve Nash is so ****ing badass. How many times have we seen it when he gets a bloody nose, bleeding from the neck and now an elbow to the eye and continued to play through the pain. Instead of shying away from the contact he goes berserk and goes into attack mode. He didn't even whine and complain like some people would(and everyone knows who im talking about) he just taped it up and when back out there and played hard. :clap:


GO STEVE NASH!!!!

Steve Nash is Canadian. And he does not yet have an official nickname. Spread the word. Steve Nash's new nickname is.......

THE HITMAN!


If you guys recall a figure from professional wrestling, the greatest Canadian wrestler being Bret "the Hitman" Hart. To me, that's who Steve Nash exemplifies. He "excellently executes" the game plan, and he can play through the nastiest most gruesome injuries, and he will pick apart your opponent. He is a cerebral type of NBA player.

His real nickname is CanJe, which stands for Canadian Jesus because that's what he is.

Amar'e calls him Two-Time for two time MVP. Plus, you always have Captain Canada.

yeah nash has more of a soccer players mentality...with the court/field vision, and for people who watch soccer we know those guys play through lots of similar injuries to what nash got today...

i remember a month back when zhirkov for chelsea got hit in the head and bled almost a pint of blood, then went to get 10 stitches in his head only to come back in the game 5 minutes later.

Hahaha yea i remember that reading about that too im a big chelsea fan. And yes soccer players dont get enough credit for playing through pain. I myself in my high school years when i still thought i was invincible played in a tournament with my club team on a fractured toe. 4 games played the full 90 each game. foot didnt stop hurting till some time in the middle of the last game. toe doesnt move anymore but id do it all over again.

you took that seriously bro? :eyebrow: of course Costra_Nostra meant an LAL sweep! c'mon....

seriously? .... chill bro....

and if you keep saying the series will go to game 7.... any NBA fan knows that anything can happen in a game 7.... mere fact that the series went the full distance meant that the Suns beat LAL 3 times.. how can you say that LAL for sure will win the 7th? of course in game 7 LA would have HCA but in game 7, home court does not count that much anymore considering the series went the distance....

now... before you get all riled up again.. this is the scenario you brought up, not me, let me be clear on this before you go off on me again, :)

i am one of those who cant figure out how people can come up with predictions on how long a series will last in a certain series... i mean hw can you tell? did you expect the Suns to sweep SAS? all i know is which team has a certain advantage over a series.. having said that though.. in a series it will be a matter of match-ups and adjustments that's why sometimes a favored team gets upset in a series...

He is playing out of his mind and he is truly one of the good guys in the game. Would be great if both Hill and Nash were able to win it before they retired.

There has been sooooo many point guard threads lately and it's really starting to bother me that people are forgetting about Steve Nash especially when he is killing it in the playoffs right now (in typical Steve Nash fashion)...

Everyone is throwing Paul, Williams, Rose and Rondo in front of him...and im not taking anything away from those guys (they are the up-and-comers) but Nash is a 2-time MVP...the Suns are going to the Conference Finals this year (no one could've expected that) on Steve Nash's back...this guy has accomplishments that those 4 guys may never surpass...outside of his skill-set, he has the intangibles that make him a great leader...the one thing always said about nash is that HE MAKES THOSE AROUND HIM BETTER....in my opinion and im sure there going to be the haters (oh he doesnt play d, oh hes getting old, oh hes doesnt score 25 points a game) but i don't care...hes a GREAT PLAYER, one of the best point guards of all-time...and hes the best inthe league right now until one of those other players matches his accomplishments...DONE DEAL

I don't have to. Because someone played another sport in canada doesn't mean he didn't play hockey, or even was a fan. I'm canadian, I played high level tennis, swam competitively, played high level bball, and by default played hockey. If you asked me what my favorite sport is, I'd have told you any one of those based on the season. That doesn't change the fact that a hockey stick and skates is glued to any canadian child over the age of 8's hands and feet every winter. Whether it was organized or not doesn't matter. Hockey is Canadian culture, and that fact more than anything else give him that mentality.

Just because a person was born and raised in Canada doesn't mean they played hockey. I can barely skate and have never played organized ice hockey.

^^^^
dudes. I'm not saying you have to play to be Canadian. I'm outlining the fact that it's very much ingrained in our culture, and that includes the mentality. Yes, I know a few people here and there who can't skate and would all in all be an embarrassment on the ice. But as a Canadian, would you not agree that you care about hockey [--or at the very least the vast majority of the people around you do--]? That you take pride in one of the things we as a nation do well, and generally hold very dear to our hearts?

I mean, I can point out a friend of mine who played rugby union a little internationally. He's just about the worst guy on skates I've ever found. But when playing out of the country he'd often be confronted by opposing players who credited Canadians for their toughness on the pitch. "Those Canadians are the hardest hitters" is something you'll often hear, and it's just as often credited to the hockey mentality of our country. You don't have to play to have it influence who you are when the phenomenon is cultural. Just by being immersed in that culture is enough.

It's like comparing soccer to Brazilians. Not all people in Brazil play, but the vast majority of people there care about it, and it in a way has become part of their culture.

And it's because of this cultural significance, that the mentality of sacrificing for the team, getting up when you're knocked down, the warrior mentality we're talking about now is inside him.

dudes. I'm not saying you have to play to be Canadian. I'm outlining the fact that it's very much ingrained in our culture, and that includes the mentality. Yes, I know a few people here and there who can't skate and would all in all be an embarrassment on the ice. But as a Canadian, would you not agree that you care about hockey [--or at the very least the vast majority of the people around you do--]? That you take pride in one of the things we as a nation do well, and generally hold very dear to our hearts?

I mean, I can point out a friend of mine who played rugby union a little internationally. He's just about the worst guy on skates I've ever found. But when playing out of the country he'd often be confronted by opposing players who credited Canadians for their toughness on the pitch. "Those Canadians are the hardest hitters" is something you'll often hear, and it's just as often credited to the hockey mentality of our country. You don't have to play to have it influence who you are when the phenomenon is cultural. Just by being immersed in that culture is enough.

It's like comparing soccer to Brazilians. Not all people in Brazil play, but the vast majority of people there care about it, and it in a way has become part of their culture.

And it's because of this cultural significance, that the mentality of sacrificing for the team, getting up when you're knocked down, the warrior mentality we're talking about now is inside him.


lol... how did this turn from a nash thread into hockey?

There is no doubt he is officially one of the toughest guys in the NBA. And to still make all those passes with pretty much 1 eye is insane. Big props to Nash.

But that picture of him they showed on TV was realllllyyy haunting.

hes not a hockey player but his mentality is very much like one. its engrained in the sporting culture over here even if u have never played the sport.

check his interview : http://tsn.ca/nba/story/?id=321487 entire story is him about having a hockey mentality. if he didnt appreciate hockey, why would he talk about it so much.

click on the video and listen to what alvin gentry said about nash "facial lacerations dont count in canada, if u dont play through it they revoke your citizenship nash told him. then forward to the 5 min mark where he asks him a question about.

regardless if u immigrate here were born here live here hockey is inescapable part of canadian culture

slyguy has a very strong point
