May 9, 1996 "Although I was hoping to be the first to mention it, nonetheless I want to start a groundswell movement to pick up Steve Nash with the 14th pick in the upcoming NBA draft. Although an underclassman may have more potential as an athlete, I'm all for picking up a player with a little more maturity. Nash is 6'3", plays point guard, and can score in bunches. Although I don't want people to think he's Randy Brown, he should be able to fill that void created by Brown's departure. And the prospect of educating a young player for three years and then watch him demand huge dollars (and/or possibly leave for same) before they reach their prime sickens me. Nash (or any good available senior) would certainly be the best choice in my opinion...-- Dr. Dave, a Kings' fan back then http://groups.google.com/group/alt.sports.basketball.nba.sac-kings/browse_thread/thread/9b8e8f49b3e15f2f/39672164310b6881?hl=en&q=steve+nash#39672164310b6881

"If we were to agree to their deal, it would be the worst collective bargaining agreement in sports history," Evans told HOOPSWORLD. "We would be a laughing stock. What they proposed to us says nothing about a partnership. We want nothing more than to grow the game and reward these great fans that have shown support for us and the NBA, but their proposal doesn't reflect that partnership at all. They proposed rollbacks, salary freezes and things that don't promote any player growth or security. It was such a terrible system."The NBA Lockout is one-sided, says NBPA's Mo Evans
