    @michaelgrange if this was a romantic comedy, this is where BC walks alone into the ACC to see Nash there, holding a Raptors uniform.

    I truly believe that Colangelo didn’t know the Pandora’s Box he was opening when he went after Nash.

    One factor: people close to Nash say he wants his ex-wife to agree to move the kids to the city he chooses. They've lived in New York.




    The bold is sympathetic.

    Unfortunately it still makes Toronto a joke.
    I bet Nash uses that condition in his interviews as the major reason...the only way he can keep on the good side of fans here. I am personally sympathetic because he is very close to his kids.

    If i'm in the Phoenix head office right now, I'm calling bullshit on this. Nash has no leverage since NY doesn't have enough cash to take him straight up, and the potential pieces from Dallas or Toronto would be at least as good or better than what NY is offering.

    BC on the other hand,

    Remember:

    At least Brandon Jennings loves Toronto!

    Time for some prophylactic healing just in case. Given that this is a site of mostly dedicated raptor fans, what difference was Nash going to make? Was he going to make us more aware of the team? Would be be more likely to go to the game? More likely to watch it on tv? Buy more stuff? Really, for me, it is how much better does he make the team. Sure he is better than Jose, a lot better,..but, if/when the sky falls in a little bit, is he that much better to justify the apocalypse? That said, the hope continues...

    With respect to Nash's personal, family reasons for wanting to be in NYC, I can totally respect that. What riles me is why BC didn't have a good read on it. Is a GM just about concocting schemes and making pitches or also having an insider view on what's really going on out there?

    Yeah, for sure BC's people should have gathered infos for him re everything Nash related before they made a decision to offer him,
    AND before they make that RIDICULOUS offer to Fields.

    Kind of hard to get an insiders view when you can't talk to him before July 1st. That's like saying BC should have known he wouldn't accept our generous offer, and not bothered trying because now I'm disappointed. Come on get real

    nah Jennings actually likes Toronto. I don't know wtf Nash is thinking, what does he think he'll accomplish with the knicks? they sure as hell wont win a championship so what else do u want. Thats simply a douchebag move, i didn't expect it from someone like Nash. If you didn't want to sign you should have just dropped out and said no
