Steve Nash.

MVP with 3 all stars in his team, the other (Amare) was a an MVP candidate. He had Shawn Marion. He had Joe Johnson.

He had the most improved player, Boris Diaw.

He had the 6th man of the year, Leandro Barbosa.

He had a leading defensive player of the year candidate, Raja Bell.

He had the coach of the year, Mike D'Antoni.


HE HAD EVERYTHING HE NEEDED. Never won a championship. He doesn't play any defense. I'd rather say I am happy right now San Antonio is good again,.

I won't deny that he doesn't play defense, cause he can't lol. But the Suns probably wouldve made the Finals in 06-07 had Robert Horry not body checked him. And Boris Diaw and D'Antoni? They're trash. Look how Diaw is doing now, and look at all the New Yorkers that want D'Antoni fired.

But that's besides the point. It just pains me lol.

Steve Nash had a great team for years in PHX to win it all. But at the end of the day, it all comes down to the lame excuse that they always ran into the Spurs. Sooner or later, you think they figure them out, but never could. I don't miss Nash. His time has come and gone. He should retire or go to a contender for a last shot at a title run. This is the new era & D-Rose runs the show. #1 PG in the league. :cheers:

It pains you? Really? It doesn't pain me-Nash has had some excellent teams-but failed to get to the Finals. Not a big deal. He didn't make the playoffs this year-again, not remotely an epic tragedy.
Oh, well-life goes on. He makes a shitload of money-more than most of us will ever see playing a game. He has an incredible job that he loves (I assume) and is very skilled at it. He's phenomenal to watch, no doubt. But he also chose to stay in Phoenix-sort of a situation of his own making. Hard to feel any sadness regarding Steve Nash, imo.

We will be back soon, cuz alot of people don't realize that Phoenix has a great team, but other teams have better ones. Hey it's unfortunate that teams at least have 3 superstars on there team.

Besides Amare and JJ what are these other players currently doing? All that talent he has had around him becomes that good because of him. Nash might not be good at defense but the team he had the players around him were not very good either on defense. The system he was in is not a system that can win a title.

Put Kobe instead of Nash in the teams I mentioned in my first post, and you'd have orgasms. 2006 Kobe + 2006 Amare + 2006 Marion + Joe Johnson.

That team would have won the championship. Probably multiple championships, because the 2006 Suns WAS THAT GOOD.

My point is, Steve Nash is just not a winner, and could not lead a great great team to a championship.

Yes it does pain me. Him signing an extension was really a mind boggler situation wise but it was 22 million over 2 years so I understand in the end. Nash has the unfortunate curse of having a crappy owner and crappy management. Really. Look at all the moves made just to save money. Trading what was effectively picks in Rondo, Ibaka, and players like Kurt Thomas (wow that bit them in the *** when he signed with the Spurs lol), just to save money. Steve Kerr screwed up the team real bad when he traded for Shaq, but redeemed himself last year really. Other than that, Robert Sarver has been a cheap bastard. Nash probably would've made the finals in 06-07 and maybe even last year had Jason Richardson not fell asleep and let Ron Artest make a last second layup in Game 5 (I think?) that shifted the momentum for the Lakers indefinitely. As Bill Simmons puts it : "And for the record, Sarver allowed Amare Stoudemire to leave (defensible), then spent 80 percent of what it would have kept to keep Stoudemire on Channing Frye, Childress and Hakim Warrick (indefensible)." and "Nash suffering through a brutally tough season off the court. To be honest, I wasn't talking about his divorce, I was talking about the fact that every morning, he had to wake up thinking, "Oh my God, I have to play with Vince Carter."

You are right. The system sucked, and Nash's glory was part of that system.

Oh btw, Barbosa already sucked even before he left Phoenix. Diaw became a bum again of course.

I doubt Kobe could've won with that team, considering they'd be just as bad at defense. Everyone besides Amare and Marion were trash, and were a product of the system. And them not winning with the run and gun system isn't completely Nash's fault. It's just that Amare couldn't play defense against good bigs and Nash whoever was playing the 2 couldn't guard wings, and they still can't. Their team defense was terrible as a whole. Now if those teams had a legitimate good center like a Dwight Howard or an Andrew Bynum who has knees, then those teams definitely could have gotten over the Spurs.

My point is, Steve Nash is just not a winner, and could not lead a great great team to a championship. But Steve Nash isn't that type of Caliber player. You can put Lebron James on that team and win a Championship. What I'm saying is people are hating so much on Nash. Kobe was in the same situation. But Suns won't be able to get help like the Lakers did. Suns are a Good team, but there is to Many stack teams in the NBA now. But hopefully there is a Hard cap, then people have to Release people, then that's when the suns will get better.

Nash hasn't been in that system for about 3 seasons now and yet he is still just as good as ever and last year again almost made it to the finals. So if you are referring to Nash being a product of that system then please explain the past few seasons?

Again this is false... He could but to say he would have won championships is a bit :facepalm:... Even with Kobe the likelihood of winning a championship in that system with that coach and no defense is extremely unlikely.

On topic, Suns brass said a few days ago that he's not going anywhere unless they are blown away with a trade offer.

Nash said he wants to play 3 more years in Phoenix. When you look at the team we have right now, realistically you add a solid PF to the team (Milsap, Randolph, Jefferson, etc), this team is back in the playoffs. 7 seconds or less is long dead so it wouldn't be as big a deal not to have getting a slower big man. We have the role players, now we just need someone to be the anchor.

You throw in someone like Michael Redd and Jefferson via trade (who has never had a big man like Gortat next to him) (both realistic) and the Suns could be scary good.

You do realize how close the Suns were during the Nash era right? It's not like we underachieved during the entire tenure.
If any of the big breaks went our way, this thread isn't even created. Outside of last year and the year we dealt for Shaq, every year of the Nash era, something went seriously wrong. None of which was Nash's fault.

But the Suns probably wouldve made the Finals in 06-07 had Robert Horry not body checked him.

I agree. That was one of those wtf moments that was complete bs. The Suns had to fight hard whenever they had a series against San Antonio and the refs usually seemed to call the game in favor of the spurs as well. Those suspensions just put it over the top and they got knocked out when in all truthfullness it should have been there year to win it.

How many times has Marion been an all star since departing PHX? As for Joe Joe, that was a mistake by the Suns letting him go. If it wasn't for Horry, the Suns probably would have won the ring that year, just bad luck...
Nash basically made Diaw and Bell, both minimum salary journey men before stints in PHX. Point is, Nash is still the best pure pg in the league and has been for the past 5 or 6 years IMO.

Did you not even think of how Joe Johnson wasn't "not worth max contract" Joe Johnson he is now? Other than Amare and Marion, yes they were all stars, but they were part of the D'Antoni system. Everyone else, was a product of Nash -- Barbosa, Bell, Diaw, Tim Thomas, James Johnson, even Dudley and Channing Frye are right now.

It's ironic you say this though, cause D'Antoni is New York's coach and they sure as hell aren't going anywhere with him. Replace the Suns' shooters with Melo, Nash with an older Billups, and you have the same team that doesn't play defense except not as good. Phoenix-lite if you will.

What were those guys before him? Diaw was trash on Atlanta's bench. D'Antoni is a guy who doesn't know the definition of defense. Barbosa and Marion are fading to irrelevance.

Nash makes players. Hell, he nearly dragged a collection of discard and misfit SFs to a playoff birth, but no he has only himself to blame...

Can I also remind everyone of Cheapshot Bob's hip check on Nash that got a couple of the Suns starters suspended for standing up?

I am a VERY big Nash fan.

But Steve wasn't the same player after the All-Star break.

Don't know whether it was his age, or a lingering injury, but after the All-Star break, Nash was no longer a go-to guy.

Just didn't shoot enough, and was very hesitant to take the big shot.

Age comes to us all, except to the ones that die young

LOL This team is one shooting guard and one good power forward away from being a contender and of course bringing Lou back which I think we will if we can get rid of Warrick and Lopez..those are all IF's...Ownership has not shown me anything that says they will go out and fill these needs in the off-season though.. Hopefully Bobby steps aside so Blanks and Babby can tweak this team....

another thing, You guys are all too young to remember Bird and Magic never played any Defense either..and those are 2 of the top 3 players of all time.. its funny how people knit-pick.

LOL, Please have a clue about what you are talking about before spewing nonsense. It's obvious you have not watched him in the playoffs.

How about 2005, specifically against his former team the Mavs. He only AVERAGED 30.3 ppg, 12 assists, and 6.5 rebounds that series. That includes one game where he dropped 48. Then averaged 23.2 ppg and 10.6 assists against a damn good Spurs team in the next series.

Just look at his playoff averages. Apparently you didn't see the 4th quarter he had against the Spurs last postseason either with one eye swollen shut.

But yeah, he has done nothing in the playoffs. :rolleyes:

He is the only MVP (2 times to boot) in the history of the NBA to never play a Finals game. That is an asterisk mark.

He has always played with talent be it in Dallas or Phoenix, so you can't even play the Kobe, Tim, Wade, and so on were put in better positions card. This was truly the first year of the millennium where he had no all star next to him and he like all those players went to the lottery for it (his second time there in the past decade btw).

The main difference between him and them is that he can't get the job done with talent, so he should be blamed, especially if people (Suns fans) are going to cite Kobe when he went into his tirade to justify it without saying what he said "Trade me or bring me talent, and if I can't win with that talent put the blame on me because I deserve it".

He's had the talent and personnel to get to the finals. But you also need a bit of luck to get there. Luck has never been on steve's side. Maybe it's because he wears number 13.

Steve Nash.

MVP with 3 all stars in his team, the other (Amare) was a an MVP candidate. He had Shawn Marion. He had Joe Johnson.

He had the most improved player, Boris Diaw.

He had the 6th man of the year, Leandro Barbosa.

He had a leading defensive player of the year candidate, Raja Bell.

He had the coach of the year, Mike D'Antoni.


HE HAD EVERYTHING HE NEEDED. Never won a championship. He doesn't play any defense. I'd rather say I am happy right now San Antonio is good again,.

Nash turned Diaw into that MIP.

Nash was the reason there was 3 all stars on that team. Had he not been therem Marion and JJ wouldn't have been as sick.

Nash turned D'Antoni into a COY. What has D'Antoni done without Nash?

Marion was an all star before Nash.

JJ has been an all star after Nash.

Amare had the Suns in the playoffs before Nash (he spent the year before Nash came there hurt) and he is in the playoffs now after him (conference plays a role in that certainly but still)

Ill quote myself while nash is enjoyin the offseason

Quote yourself till you're blue in the face, personally I'm not impressed.. And Nash can enjoy his off season breast feedin his baby whilst pile driving doritos all day long and it still doesn't matter which point guards are better or worse than him because at the least, 16 of them are in the hunt still to win a ring.. I'll take that any day unlike most Phx/Nash fans who still don't understand winning is more important than individual accolades and simply beating the Lakers.. So yeah, keep piling on those accolades, I'm guessing it's true when they say ignorance is bliss for some people..

Sad face.. :D

Meh.....he needs to go to a contender if he wants a ring at this point in his career. Loyalty don't mean ****. He needs to accept a new role for a legitimate shot or just join the likes of other greats who never won because Phoenix aint winning jack in the next few years.
