That's not to say Isiah can't pass, or Nash can't score, but it really depends on what you need. A team with offensive weapons at the other four slots certainly doesn't need 20-25ppg from it's point guard. But if you've got a team with a couple stoppers and a couple jacks of all trades, having that scorer running your team is a seriously benefit.

I think Isiah was a little better at directing the half court offense and Nash is a bit better with the open floor/broken plays/improvisation.

That said, I think Phoenix would’ve been better with Isiah than it is with Nash, just because I think Marion is a little bit better when he’s not relied on to be a scorer, and you can run with players like Diaw and Bell, who while they’re offensively capable, they’re not scorers by trade. I think it’s really tough to say if the Bad Boys era Pistons would be better or worse off with Nash. A convincing argument could really be made either way.

There is not one team in the history of the NBA that would be better served with Nash than Zeke, not one.

I like Nash and have no problem with him winning the MVP's but i have a hard time taking him over Isiah.

Isiah did a good job toning down his game to accomodate his teamates but when they were playing a big game and it was crunch time there was never any doubt who the go to guy was.

Nash has had some great performances in the playoffs and is a great player but ......I still have to give the edge to Isiah.

Put Zeke in Nash's Spot and they would have won a title

Richardson has been exposed. Joe Johnson was hurt in the series that they got knocked out. Their first and only big off the bench was Steven Hunter. Isiah wouldnt win a championship with that group.

I agree with this. The Blazer team with him at the point, along with Drexler and Kersey on the wings would have won last years championship with ease.

But no way do I even think about picking Porter in front of Isiah.

[QUOSo the one guy I'd put ahead of Nash on that list is Oscar. If you look at Isiah's best years, they're on par with Nash's. Cousy was a lousy shooter. Tiny had a couple of ridiculous years (30-10), but wasn't as good a shooter as Nash.

from another thread... just goes to show how NAsh is the most overrated player in the league. Nash was never on par with isiah even during nash's MVP years i would rather have Isiah

the bulls from the 90's would have won 15 straight championships in the 60's and 70's , does that mean anything ?
