If You Had to Bet Where Steve Nash Ends Up?

Unread postby peeker643 » Tue May 22, 2012 2:16 pm

Would the favorites be Miami and Lakers without question? Is he a better fit one place or the other?

My initial thought is he fits better with the wing and the big man who don't dominate the ball quite like DWade and LBJ dominate the ball. Might be the one guy Kobe trusts and neither team will let their current starter stand in the way of their pursuit.

I think that's going to be a big scene in the offseason as Nash has a couple good years left and will want to chase a ring.

Orlando? New GM would want to make a splash. Yeah DHo isn't the 1st thing that comes to mind when you think P&R, but Nash has been successful with far lesser bigs.

Utah? Coupled with trading Big Al for a swingman, that could make them legit contenders.

Wherever D'Antoni ends up?

<-- clinging to Favors for $1 in fantasy hoops, as he'll be one of the sexier keepers in the league if the Jazz wise up and trade Al.

Why are so many people convinced Nash and D'Antoni are attached at the hip? All those people who thought Nash would go to NY cuz of D'Antoni etc. Nash has continued his excellence while D'Antoni has not. Methinks Nash had a helluva lot more to do with the Suns success than D'Antoni. SSOL is not an offensive methodology, its a I dont know what the fuck I'm doing so you guys just shoot it, quick as you can.

D'Antoni was pretty damn excellent prior to Melo ariving in NYC.

And the two have openly stated, repeatedly that they have a huge respect for each other. I don't think they are attached at the hip (and I think Nash never, ever goes to a team with Kobe, LBJ or Melo), but I wouldn't be shocked to see them end up together.

True re: D'Antoni pre-Melo - hell Chris Duhon was his PG and he was having success. Forgot bout that.

Also just FTR, Dallas is an obvious candidate as well. We may need to have D-Will resolved before we figure out where Nash is going.

Inside article on ESPN breaking down potential destinations.

http://insider.espn.go.com/nba/story/_/ ... steve-nash

In summary, the good fits are the Lakers, Nets, Magic, Portland, Toronto. The better fits are Dallas and the Knicks, and the best fit is the Heat.

Nothing too enlightening in the article.

Isn't Mike Brown entrenched in LA?

There are a lot of rumors swirling about both Brown and the GM.

Personally, I don't know how in the hell Brown gets blamed and the GM traded Pau for CP3... but it is what it is in Kobe's world.

The Raptors have been rumored to have strong interest. Don't expect him to retire with a franchise that is seemingly always in rebuilding mode though. He doesn't have time to babysit, he wants to win. I think the Magic would be a great fit and could possibly squash this Van Gundy/Howard/Ownership situation. Yes, Steve Nash is that good.

The best fit is CLEARLY NOT the Heat.

Bringing in a guy who needs the ball?

They are gonna run damn near everything through Lebron, as they did in the playoffs. They'll give Chalmers or whomever else some token touches and some "time off" plays, but they aren't so stupid that they'll change much from what they did during the playoff run.

An offense which, by the way, provided more wide open shots that any offense a HOF Steve Nash ever ran.
