Thumbs up In case you didn't know this about Nash.

He's averaging 20/12.

Soon no arguement will be good enough to deny him of three straight MVP's.

He's not a good player in a great system. Simply a great player that can score at will, set people up at will, lead his team on and off the court (which most of the other MVP candidates don't or can't do), etc.

Heck, stats don't even matter. Watch him play and tell me he's not good enough to win the MVP.

Everytime i see him play he just keeps making something special that amazes me.
He is certainly one of a kind.
I wish he could play for another 10 years...

ok.

he's not good enough to win the MVP.

I take that back.

he's not good enough to deserve the MVP.

that has no bearing on whether he will win it or not. he probably will if the Suns keep this up. probably will even if they don't.

Question for the older crowd:

Did anyone ever see this potential in Nash?

Other than the fact that every one in the media will never let his legend die and he'll be talked about by every white father 20 years from now trying to teach their unathletic chump of a kid how to make a bounce pass, ignoring the fact that their kid is a complete and utter chump.

Steve Nash, inspiration to chumps everywhere.
Not sure that's the legacy he's really going for

No. That's why this is so stunning. Nash was a nice player in Dallas, but never, EVER did anyone consider him NEAR the level of Dirk. Nash also rountinely got destroyed by Bibby in the playoffs. The final year with the Mavs, they underachieved and Nash played only decent, throw in the age factor and it was a logical conclusion that "Nash is going down hill". NO ONE could have expected him to blow up like this. People want to say Mark Cuban was dumb for letting him go, but really, 9 times out of 10 Cuban made the right move.

Shaq has one MVP and his name will be around(being talked about by people) for 50+ years. Nash's won't other than the record books.

Nash if he wanted could average 25 with 11 if he really wanted.

Im tired of people calling him not athletic.....

He is fast with the ball,and very quick in space.

Hes not Francis explosive but u have to have athletiscm to get to the basket like he can.

Otherwise we would see JAson Kapono dunking on fools.

Sydney Olympics 2000.

Dallas didn't make Nash.

Dirk didn't make Nash.

Phoenix didn't make Nash.

D'antoni didn't make Nash.

He always had it.

Great shooter and playmaker, looks better then he is because of the system, sad the day he is crowned especially if you saw how good magic, stockton, kg heck prime payton were. Nash in phoenix is like the perfect storm, he has the perfect skillset, the right players around him and a factastic offensive system to highlight the skillset. Top 5 pg alltime? maybe but i dont think so....
