Neither team would do the trade right NOW but can you imagine Nash in Cleveland? He'd end up killing Mike Brown after like 2 practices.

i don't know. not that you wouldn't rather have a 22 year old bron than a 32 year old nash, but the suns have a legit shot at a title right now, and if you replace nash with bron that's probably out the window. then you've got the expense of it. no way you can keep that team together and absorb bron's even larger contract. as long as you had bron and amare you'd be competitive forever, but you'd sacrifice chemistry and a serious title run right now for hope for the future. you'd probably have to do it because bron is a money machine, but i think cotton and the fellas would be biting their nails.

If Bron is as good as they say he is...he should be able to get the talented Suns team to the NBA finals just the same.

You have to tade LeBron for Nash if you can.

The reason? Contracts. Steve Nash is locked up for three more years of his prime after this year (at well below market value), while LeBron is only under contract for two more years, after which he will opt out and run to the biggest-market team that can afford him.



I hope you found this answer both useful and informative.

that's a big IF, and i don't know that any pg other than kidd could run these suns the way d'antoni wants them run. but you're right. it should require minimal roster maintance to rework the team around bron. trouble is the money. i think that would be three max deals plus you need to be able to keep raja, barbosa, and diaw without sacrificing the chance to upgrade your backup guards and center.

kidd wouldnt be as effective as nash on the suns, not even close, kidd cant shoot which is a BIG no-no in the suns game style, nash can't combine scoring and playmaking the way nash does, nash is shooting 50%/50%/90% this season which is something kidd wouldnt do in his dreams, defense ? i agree kidd is a WAY better defender, but in the suns style defense has no relevance.

true, kidd's not nash, and they would suffer for the change, but he at least has the instincts to run that offense. i don't think there's another pg in league (maybe paul) who can maintain that pace end to end all game long.

i think if lebron was on the suns, they'd just be another un-organized offensive-minded team with no direction.

lebron can't make the passes Nash can on a consistent basis, no one in the league can at the moment..with lebron instead of Nash, it would just be a lot of random 3 point shooting, drives to the basket, one on one ISO's

with Nash, everyone in the Suns offense has a purpose. Nash is one of the only PG's in the league who, in a half-court set, is constantly given the ball to see what he can do. When i watch almost any other team, once the PG passes the ball in the half-court set, he may or may not see it again. Nash almost always gets the ball back, this is because he gets guys wide-open shots, time and time again. Lebron can't do that. I think with Lebron, the Suns offense would be more like the Wizards..high scoring and unorganized, not nearly as efficient as the Suns..not nearly as consistent, either.

if Nash were on the Cavs, he would turn into merely a very good sharpshooter who can make the good pass. With hughes and Z getting so many touches, Nash wouldnt be able to dominate the ball like he does in Phoenix. that doesnt work, either..

I dont think either team makes the trade. Even with Lebron being younger, the Suns arent going to abandon this plan that theyve been orchestrating for years. And with lebron, that plan would not see fruition. it would have to change.
