    Default Steve Nash

    Phoenix is clearly game-planning for life after Nash. BC has the hookups with PHX and Lon Babby. Should we make this happen? I think we could switch Caldy and Weems for Nash straight up.

    Can you imagine a 1-2 punch of Bayless and Nash. Plus dude can run the fast break with Barbo.

    Lets do this!

    No, we are a rebuilding team and that'd hurt us horrible in the long run.

    But a rebuilding team needs a veteran presence. Right now we do not have that and it is obvious. Nash is a born leader, has played for JT, has played with Barbo, he could be pretty good for us and could mentor Bayless.

    Jose is a veteran and he's been playing really well as of late. I'd rather keep him because he's not going to retire or become [much] less effective in a couple of seasons.

    I highly doubt Suns are going to trade Nash anyways...

    And from PHX perspective, they are rebuilding as well. I don't think an owner like Sarver would be willing to take on Calderon for 9 years at an average of around $10M. That is pretty much what he is paying Nash.

    im all for getting nash. yes he's old and plays less defense than jose but the team needs a change of culture and nash would bring in a winning attitude, leadership and be a mentor to the young guys. plus we'd be more likely to attract free agents without grossly overpaying. now i doubt they'd take jose for him but if they could work it out without losing any of the young nucleus i'd love it.

    to be a winner, you need a winning mentality and steve nash would clearly bring that.

    it be fitting to have Nash playout his last days in Canada.. nash is still playing at a high level so it should be a no brainer... just dont expect 4more years of nash at this level of play...if all we had to surrender was the Bosh TPE or some expirings like say Peja then id be all for it,but Jose would then have to be moved in another deal..hopefully for a Center

    imagine how he'd raise the game of guys like bargs and demar? plus he wouldn't have to play mega minutes with bayless on board.

    I like the idea. I'm sure Nash would love to be back in Canada and then when he retired he would likely stay around and work for the Raps, just like Alvin

    Nash in a Raptors uniform seems pretty slim. He seems pretty content in the desert. Also as you get older you become more sensitive. It's still pretty hot in Phoenix even in December. It's probably better to play in a dryer warmer climate. A lot of older players opt to play in warmer places. I fractured both my wrists and even they feel shitty in colder weather. And I'm only 20.

    if we can get Nash and Gortat then I'm all for it. We need somebody like Marcin Gortat to play in the post.

    i didn't know jose had a 9 year contract.

    anyways, i want nash to go to a legit contender and win a title, which is why he should go to miami. there legit with nash and he'd be a big contributor for them winning a championship and then he can come play here for 1 or 2 years.

    Nash loves Phoenix and the medical staff there are amazing and are able to keep him playing at a high level. There is not point for him to come to Toronto, if he wanted to be traded he would want to go to a team that was in contention to win it all.

    looking around the league there are not really any teams that it would make sense for him to go to. The only team would have been orlando but they now have gil and hedo. Steve is going to stay in PHX and until his career is over.

    It was discussed in a BS report earlier in the month. (December 1st)

    I agree with LBF. If Nash were to leave Phoenix , he'd want to go to a contender. Nash wants a ring like all players. He wouldn't go to a losing team like the Raptors. Miami would be a nice spot like LBF mentioned. Miami doesn't have a solid of so Nash would be perfect.

    Whoops... typo. 3 years.

    Also, it is hard to know what is real or not in pro sports but this is an interesting read given the thread:

    Nash happy, looking to stay

    If we could land Nash, as Multipaul is positing, it would be a sold out game every night and the ratings would go through the roof. I would be very excited by this. I might even bone my wife a few times. Regardless of any of the negatives this deal might have, it would be seriously cool to have Nash playing with us right now. Nash only has a couple of years left, so its now or never. Nash in 2012 wouldn't be as exciting. I probably wouldn't bone my wife.

    Maybe its the kid in me coming out, but I say if BC could pull the trigger on Nash, I would want him to do it. Just like RaptorDan said, I would be crazy excited too.
    Nash for PM, forget MVP!

    Imagine how Nash's body holds up going from Phoenix (hot and dry) to Toronto (Cold and Humid) I love Nash, but no thanks
