View Full Version : Where do you think Nash should go?

I know there are a couple of Nash threads right now, but everybody seems to have an opinion on this and nobody has put out a poll yet. The poll is a simple multple choice, but I really want to hear WHY you guys are making your choices. I'm keeping a short list up there, because lets face, teams like the Pistons and the Bucks really aren't in this conversation, and come contenders (OKC, Chi-town) already have a PG.

So here goes....

I seriously think he could push ATL to a top 2 team in the East.

There offense is that bad, and he'd improve it that much. Not only by managing the offense, but by shooting. I haven't looked at the stats, but I feel like they are one of the weaker 3PT shooting teams in the league. They are also one of the few teams that has the defenders to cover him up.

But I think they are really high on developing Teague.

Ebbs

ATL would give him a chance to go to a team who was competing where he could have a huge impact. I don't know if they could win but he will get very little credit if he won a ring with say the heat.

psychopath? Is he also a murderer and a rapist?

Actually, sources tell me Dwight is also terrorist. Keep buying into the media.

Dwight is immature, but Nash is the kind of great PG that will look at the roster we have and see a perfect fit. From a basketball perspective, it makes a lot of sense.

JasonJohnHorn
05-10-2012, 07:41 PM
I put NY myself, because I think they are a team that is a strong leader away from contending. They would also need to work on depth in the offseason, but the draft and a couple of vet-mins could fix that problem.

That said, I think the second best option for Nash is ATL. I know they really aren't in the conversation, but Joe Johnson played some great ball around Nash in Phoenix. Nash is really the guy that helped him jumpstart his career, and I think Nash would make him look like he's worth the contract he signed on off. The important thing in this though would be keep Josh Smith. With Al Horford and Zaza and Smith in the front court, there are some serious rebounders there, and some hard-nosed defence as well. Tegue is a good player, and I think having Nash as a mentor would be of great help to him improving his game even if he has to take a step back in terms of minutes to let Nash get his share of ball time. ATL is a great fit.

That said, the Spurs are also a soldi fit because they play team ball and always make the extra pass to the open man. I think Nash would thrive with that team, even if it means that he and Parker have to split minutes, but I think Pop could pull off having them on the court at the same time for a few minutes a game.

and ur cocky attitude makes ur prespective credible? He's not more egotistical than the other NBA stars these days. Funny, his maturity and ego were never a problem before this season when he actually had a decent team around him. He's as egotistical and immature as any NBA star. Only difference is what he's disgruntled with the situation his team is in.

Im glad u got to know the guy so well and spent time with him before judging him and throwing out his "traits".

Man, wth are u talking about ur basing most of this on articles coming from "sources" which may or may not be true.

Im not going to defend dwight, fact is his incredible play offsets any negatives he has done off the court, and u can be damn sure any player, coach, team would love to have Dwight alongside them. At the end of the day, like many other players, all he did was ask for a trade. He didnt rape a kid or slaughter people. Stop trying to turn him into a burden on mankind.

If Nash does ring chase, I hope he signs with a contender where he gets starter minutes.

New york and Miami really dont have a chance its between Phoenix, Chicago, Orlando, Dallas, Atlanta, and Los Angeles. The reason I put Chicago on that list is because CJ Watson's value has skyrocketed this season and will probably sign somewhere else and with Rose likely out for a big part of the season they will need somebody to run their offense.

Chicago makes sense- with their dynamic leader hurt and that awesome interior D. No-one would be able to say boo when he gets torched off the dribble and there is help down low in the paint. Always drove me crazy to watch STAT move out of the way and feebly attempt to block a shot from the side or behind.
The big problem in both LA and Miami is that their franchise players like to play with the ball in their hands. Nash needs to have the ball to weave his magic. I know the Knicks need to shed some dollars and I believe his twins and their mother still live in NY ? A reunion with STAT might make STAT feel more relevant again but it really doesn't bring Nash closer to a ring.

That being said Nash certainly dances to the beat of his own drummer and it wouldn't shock me if he pulled a rabbit out of his pocket and did the unexpected.

Charlotte bobcats?? :confused:

But on the real the more I think the about it the more the lakers make sense. Lets look at their situation kobe and gasol are their best play makers. Kobe and gasol are also their more versatile scorers. If the lakers sign nash they can completely take the play making responsibilities off gasol and kobe meaning they become pure scorers and kobe will have ALOT of wide open shots. I cant imagine teams not double teaming nash or kobe when they penetrate the lane and even if they dont then either guy can just finish at the rim or off the dribble. With that being said I would hate for this to happen but it wouldnt be fair for the nba.

But they already have issues with Lebron and Wade both having to play without the ball. To maximize Nash, you have to put the ball in his hands every time.

Where Nash could really help that team is as a spot up shooter. Probably the most underrated shooter in the league because his passing overshadows it.

As a Raptor fan, I would love him to help develop the younger talent (JV and I would hope we would draft a Pg if he is on our list), but I think Miami is the better choice if he wants to win.

1. I am aware they have two ball dominant players, but I was thinking that he would be more involved in the secondary rotation. As he plays to win, I don't think he would mind if he doesn't have the ball right off the bat, and has to play more like a spot shooter (maybe right off the bench if they want a defensive 1 with LBJ/Wade).

2. This gets to my second point. I think on the secondary unit, he could really help Bosh, who's offensive game seems off since leaving Toronto (I'm aware he went from 1st-3rd option on the move, but he still looks like he's regressed a little on the O). In Toronto, Bosh benefited from having a pass first PG in Jose Calderon. Calderon would hand him the ball when he's properly set up or right at the net, which lead to his monster stats here. With the best passer in the game on the team, I would think when Lebron/Wade need time off, Bosh would really shine as Nash would be looking to get him the ball in excellent situations for the most part.

Should be interesting. If Nash does come to Toronto though, Miami might get a poor mans version of Nash anyways in Calderon (amnesty or buy-out could be possible, depending on how we work the draft).

Chicago! Nash needs to go to a team with an identity and that plays defense! Does anyone think the Bulls will be a top 3 seed next season while D Rose gets healthy! The season starts in late October. They need to hit the ground running while D Rose gets heathy and back in form. I can't see him being fully recovered and primed until the All Star break. Imagine PnR with Nash and Boozer or Nash and Noah. Finding Deng at his spots on the floor! Their defense will help Nash because it's so good and they play team basketball! Nash isn't a idiot! If he wanted the money, he'd stay with the Suns. This is a ring chase! Oh yeah, Nash with an on time pass to Rip after he runs around those screens for a quick, in rythme jump shot! This is too easy of a fit!!!

Steve Nash is one of the best offensive PGs of all time partly because he saves his energy on the defensive end, he has never made it to the finals, i think you think he is a missing piece to a finals run it should be as a backup where he can come off the bench and give you runs, but I dont see him being a starting PG anywhere next year and being able to get a team to the finals. No way.

He should go to Toronto, finish out a brilliant career and bring some popularity to the sport in Canada.

Orlando (great fit) but it is too much uncertainty and off-court drama right now.

Atlanta (I voted this one, see im not a homer). He would be a pretty fit in Atlanta. Add Nash to their current roster with Smith-Johnson-Teague-Horford and they will be contenders.

New York. Nash added to NYC. Bringing his leadership and chemistry with Amare and much needed guard help would make NYC instant contenders too. However, he would have to take a steep discount (vet min most likely) and I doubt it.
