    If only... Can't really blame BC for the Raptors being in Canada. If the trade goes through, I fear that Nash might become the newest victim of the fan's boos. It's amazing how one of Canada's most beloved athlete could become one of the most hated athletes to the Raptors over one S&T.

    This guy has never played for Canada in recent years yet we are willing to go all in for him.
    Again he disses Canada if he signs with NY .... and to top all matters we want him as GM of the National Team.
    I would can his sorry ass.

    Colangelo should have known that he wanted to play in NY and not Toronto. Signing Fields was lame unless of course he also signed Iman Schupert and every other Knick Phoenix might be interested in .

    For that matter if we want Nash that bad we could do a S & T with Phoenix and give them Calderon & Ross.

    I believe that Calderon and Bayless are good PG's and represent a solid Plan B.

    If i were Calderon, i'd silently ask for a trade. I'd say, enough is enough. Tried to trade me twice, and now possibly amnesty me and i'm still here. He'd definitely get a lot of takers.

    We can't do a S&T with Phoenix if Nash wants to play in New York.

    It doesn't matter how better our potential S&T offer would be. Nash has to OK it by agreeing to play in Toronto first. Phoenix literally has zero power.

    So, this is way down the list (let's call it about, Plan F), but how about keeping Calderon for a year and making a hard pitch for Alexey Schved?

    I haven't seen much of him beyond youtube clips, but his passing and offense seems to have a lot of upside, though I hear he's a defensive liability at this point. Still, he's a 23-year-old 6'5 PG who's drawn comparisons to Rubio and Dragic, and he's a UFA.
    Here's his draftexpress page, but the latest report is a couple years old: http://www.draftexpress.com/profile/Alexey-Shved-1097/
    He's definitely improved some aspects of his game, such as 3-point shooting, which was 49% this year in euroleague.

    RT @gourmetspud: Ford, Jack, Bayless, Nash. Somewhere Calderon stares into a mirror, pounds his chest + screams "KEEP COMING MOTHERF#*@#S!"

    I feel sorry for Jose. I wouldn't be surprised if he demanded a trade now.

    Both those free-agents were from Minnesota and the Wild sell out literally every game and have arguably the best fans in the sport. They're like OKC Thunder, if OKC was a breeding ground for American born players.

    I think they call Minnesota the State of Hockey, so its probably a hockey wild town, meaning good market and fanbase.

    They were still never a preferred free agent destination and perennial doormat. That's what makes the NHL different from the NBA. And Nash is from Canada, and he didn't come home, so you kind of help me make my point.

    i think BC using Gretzky in his sales pitch to nash may have been a bad move... didnt Gretzky turn down the leafs to sign with the Rangers at one point??? & hes still loved by canadians... damn 99!! LOL we should have had Don Cherry in the sales pitch not 99!! LOL

    With or w/out Nash, sources say, Raps will keep trying to trade for Kyle Lowry. Raps talked deals w/HOU at draft. Still want him either way

    BC trying to save face - and, if it happens, make Lowry feel that he wasn't 2nd choice. I really wonder what we can give up that Houston would value.

    Houston is so big on analytics and Derozan grades out terribly so not sure they would even value him that highly
