    There should be at least written quotes below the video just in case the video doesn’t work. I’m curious about the Steve Nash trade talks and what teams are interested in getting Steve.

      Supposedly the Magic are making a hard play at Nash:

      Would be interesting for sure. The East is weak right now. Would lov to see some power swing back that way. If the Heat are gonna be challenged by anyone in the East, it would have to be a PG who can control the pace of the game and not turn the ball over. The Magic w Nash and Howard could attack them at their two biggest weaknesses. Doubt will happen though unfortunately.

        I have no doubts for Steve, His physique and endurance doesn’t say much about his age. He is the type of player that can make anybody look/play good as a player. The Heat will have a serious contender if Magic can get Steve. Heat doesn’t have a big man to defer Howard much more if Steve draws the Miami defense. :-)

    Pretty sure Matt isn’t the one linking videos if he is he should possibly fire his agent.

    IF, and this is just speculation from afar, Wade though he got fouled by Kobe twice he told the referees as much when there was no call. He decided to take matters into his own hands and break Kobe’s nose to go along with a concussion, am pretty OK with that. I can only hope that Kobe was trash talking to him about crying for a foul like he likes to do. I can’t wait for Wednesday when Kobe is going to do NOTHING about it.

    I kinda feel bad for Le Bron but I kinda don’t…

    Scenario Le Bron with the ball 6 seconds left Kobe on his left and Durant coming from the right:

    1 Lebron passes the ball: “No heart, wont take tough shot, doesn’t have what it takes to pull the trigger”

    2 Lebron Shoots and misses: “can’t make the big one,trying to prove a point, all about himself others were open”

    3 Lebron shoots and wins the game: “It’s only the all star game he cant do it in a real game\playoff game\ Finals”

    So i feel bad for him BUT he did bring it all on himself fair or not, you can’t disappear from the NBA finals and expect anything but.

      Scenario 2 & 3: – At least he’s got the heart to man up on a challenge. Any player who wants to win choose to be criticized by Scenario 2 & 3 anytime, rather than Scenario 1.

      Weigh that. That’s fans lose sight of that only haters could see.

      I’ll ask you, fan or not, (I am assuming that you play ball too), IF YOU HAVE THAT CHANCE, WILL YOU TAKE THE SHOT?

    I wonder why Boston hasn’t been mentioned in the Nash sweepstakes yet. He’s exactly what they need for one last run and could make them competitive with Miami or Chicago. The suns first round pick this year should be near the back end of the lottery so it’s got some decent value. Why not Rondo for Nash and their first round pick?

    • savvybynature - Feb 28, 2012 at 12:21 AM

      Because if it didn’t work they would be left with no viable pieces to build around.

    • md23rewlz - Feb 28, 2012 at 1:17 AM

      I know Rondo’s had his ups and downs, but PG isn’t their problem. Their problem is that their best players aren’t what they were a few years ago. This was going to happen to Boston eventually. Everybody knew it would. That’s what happens when you blow out your future for your present. Trading away their best young player for the last two or three years of Steve Nash’s career makes no sense. Especially because even if they traded for him, they’re still not at the level of Chicago or Miami.

    • raidmagic - Feb 28, 2012 at 7:46 AM

      Rondo is the only one in Boston playing good right now, he isn’t the issue. Also why should the Suns give up a 1 for him Boston should give up thier pick if they feel they are upgrading with that trade

      • bozosforall - Feb 28, 2012 at 10:12 AM

        Because idiot Celtics fans always dream up lopsided trades that they think will work in their fantasy world.

      • foozep - Feb 28, 2012 at 6:15 PM

        you mean like trading for ray allen and kg and then winning the title?

  7. c0achdesigns - Feb 28, 2012 at 3:24 AM

    Nash = Lakers = Championship

    • fouldwimmerlaik - Feb 28, 2012 at 5:25 AM

      Nice. But in exchange of what or who?

      • Coach Dee - Feb 28, 2012 at 5:28 AM

        just saying. the Lakers now + Steve Nash = Championship run. It’s a fantasy of mine and I know it’s way far from reality. Peace!

      • bozosforall - Feb 28, 2012 at 10:12 AM

        Draft picks, of course. The Lakers never use them anyway.
