I hate purple people...
Are you Nash enough?
What happened to the Steve Nash debate? Am I in the wrong room.
I don't think there is anything of substance that hasn't already been covered currently.
and if there is quit complaining and spit it out.
HAHAHAH This picture is AMAZING.
Nash turned 38 in February, is obviously past his prime, and isn’t any better defensively at the point than Jose Calderon (he may even be worse considering Calderon’s defensive improvements this season). Those traits don’t sound like they would normally mesh with a young team that isn’t even sniffing contention yet and is led by a defensive maestro in Dwane Casey.http://blogs.thescore.com/raptorblog...it/#more-10451And about being possibly a worse defender than Jose Calderon, let’s remember that Dwane Casey seems to have constructed a defensive scheme here (and an impressive one at that) that has already had to adapt to a defensively inept point guard.
(I realize neither are great defenders so keep that in mind in this discussion.)
Stats are not everything but they do not support the claims that Nash is a worse defender than Jose (and Nash did not have a defensive scheme created to cover his weaknesses).
OppPER per48 minutes: 13.6
on court point differential: +4.3
off court point differential: -7.7
OppPER per48minutes: 17.8

off court point differential: -2.7

NY Knicks forward Amar'e Stoudemire is fired up to bring Steve Nash to Madison Square Garden
It is believed that the Knicks would have a better chance at signing Nash if his former coach, Mike D’Antoni, was still coaching the Knicks. However, a source close to Nash asked the veteran that same question and Nash responded by saying he isn’t “ruling out anybody at this point.”
One dark horse team could be the Portland Trail Blazers, the nearest NBA city to Nash’s hometown of Vancouver. Nash has several business interests in Vancouver, including ownership in the Major League Soccer team there, and playing for the Trail Blazers would make sense personally and professionally for him.
