I'm a big Suns
fan. To explain, I've lived outside Arizona for 6 years now, but still closely follow the Suns and will continue to do so.
Do I not like the lakers? of course, but it's more Kobe I don't like. The way I see it, the Suns didn't have the money or current roster to do anything with Nash, as far as becoming an obvious Title contender for the remaining of Steve's career. So I'm happy to see him with a team that was in the top 8 or so, and if they take advantage of Steve, and make changes, I think it'll be exciting to watch them. Yes...them being the Lakers
. So I wish Nash good luck! During those first 2-3 years he was with the Suns, those were very special years for me to be a Suns fan, even though we didn't win. I sure believed we could. And God were those teams fun to watch!
Ok, here's a question. Is Steve Nash
loyal? I think loyalty applies to family, or your nation/military. Asking me is Nash loyal is like asking me is if I could be the President at Chess. My point, it's an unknown and not something to pretend to know. I prefer to judge Nash on the things I know, the things that apply to him being a Sun. It's a simple list, I'm sure I'll miss a few. He give's his all and desperately wants to win. Spurs
series, bloody nose? Few years before that vs the mavs when they decided to let him score, so he put up close to 50, and could've likely gone in the 60-70 range in my opinion if he was selfish. Nash brings chemistry to teams he is on. He made a close friend of Dirk, and made many close friends and improved a ton of Suns players while here. To judge whether Nash is loyal or not doesn't fit...if anything though, I would guess he is. He did get some draft picks for us, draft picks that prevent the lakers from using for howard. Some rule about having to wait a year before using more 1st round picks. Steve got those for us, plus money if I recall? Bottom line, this is his job, he is getting paid for it, I have no problem with him moving on to any team (ok, Heat
would've bothered me...I'm human, sue me). Although I'm pulling for the Suns to win a title, I wish Nash the best. And if he's not playing against the Suns, I'll hope he wins. If the Lakers use Nash correctly, he'll make Bynum and Gasol look like the best 2 big men in the league. I don't think the Lakers need Howard, he's kind of wishy washy. They need to use Nash correctly. I give the lakers a 30-40% chance of doing this. For me, correctly would be Nash playing 32-35 minutes a game, running the offense and the Lakers changing to fit Nash. Kobe to me will be possibly the problem, we'll see.
