Steve Nash

  1. Steve Nash calls both sides of lockout “inevitably selfish”

    Nov 3, 2011, 1:42 PM EST

    Steve Nash

    Halloween night I was standing in the front yard of a friend passing out candy with other dads while our kids soaked the neighbors for teeth-rotting treats when one guy asked, “Can you explain the lockout to me?” I did. And halfway through it I realized there is no way to describe this without everyone…

  2. LeBron James makes fun of his hairline, then tries to recruit Steve Nash and Jamal Crawford

    Oct 27, 2011, 5:54 PM EST

    Not shown: hair on LeBron's forehead.

    LeBron James has drawn criticism over the past few years for coming across as narcissistic and/or programmed in his public statements, completely turning the city of Cleveland against him with “The Decision,” melting down in the 2010 Eastern Conference Semifinals and the 2011 NBA Finals, and his receding hairline. To his credit, LeBron showed a sense…

  3. On Aaron Brooks and life after Steve Nash in Phoenix

    Oct 12, 2011, 3:33 PM EST

    Aaron Brooks

    Steve Nash has defined the Phoenix Suns franchise since the summer of 2004, but every passing day brings the Suns that much closer to parting with their only remaining star. Joe Johnson, Shawn Marion, and Amar’e Stoudemire have all come and gone, and the last great remnant of the Suns team that embarked on Seven…

  4. NBA player reactions to lockout all over twitter

    Oct 11, 2011, 8:44 AM EST

    twitter-whale

    Through the lockout, the NBA owners have been a monolith — all news from their side comes from David Stern or Adam Silver only. No owners or executives speak on the issue. The players, however, have a lot of voices. And many of those voices get expressed on twitter. Moments after Stern announced the cancellation…

  5. Nash makes twitter plea for owners to end lockout

    Oct 10, 2011, 5:01 PM EST

    Boston Celtics v Phoenix Suns

    Steve Nash has never been shy about his opinions, and today he’s using his twitter account to ask the owners to end the ongoing NBA lockout. Here’s what he tweeted: The NBA has experienced over 60 yrs of growth with new growth projected using the current model. After a banner year the players are still willing…

  6. Hakim Warrick eyes a bounce-back year for himself and the Suns

    Sep 29, 2011, 3:18 PM EST

    Warrick_suns

    Every NBA team has lofty aspirations by the time training camp rolls around, and it seems that even the league’s holding pattern couldn’t quell the preseason optimism of a particular spokesman for a landlocked team. The Phoenix Suns aren’t in the best of shape. They haven’t had a chance to make any significant additions to…

  7. What the Suns should do when the lockout ends

    Sep 21, 2011, 12:30 PM EST

    Minnesota Timberwolves v Phoenix Suns

    This is the latest installment of PBT’s series of “What your team should do when the lockout ends.” Up next is the Phoenix Suns. You can also check out our thoughts on other NBA teams here as we work our way through all 30 squads. Last season: Just one year removed from pushing the eventual…

  8. Steve Nash vs. Hope Solo in soccer… okay, in video games

    Sep 18, 2011, 8:36 PM EST

    Boston Celtics v Phoenix Suns

    Steve Nash has to be in the conversation for funniest NBA player. Maybe not the funniest, I’d actually submit Tim Duncan, yes, Tim Duncan for that honor. (Seriously, have you seen the H-E-B commercials?) But Nash needs to be in the running. And if you don’t believe me, I’ve got a video with Nash facing…

  9. Steve Nash didn’t play for Canada but wants to lead team

    Sep 14, 2011, 11:35 AM EST

    Minnesota Timberwolves v Phoenix Suns

    It was a disappointment when Canada — working hard to build up its national basketball team — failed to make even next summers pre-Olympics second chance qualifying tournament this summer. Canada was just not impressive at the FIBA Americas tournament. Of course, they were without the best Canadian player, Steve Nash. Or Tristan Thompson. Or…

  10. Video: Here’s your chance to watch Steve Nash pick his nose

    Sep 13, 2011, 7:10 PM EST

    Denver Nuggets v Phoenix Suns

    Steve Nash has a public image to uphold, what as the floppy-haired Canadian that Phoenix and America loves. So we’re never going to see him pick his nose or fart on camera… Or, maybe we will. Below is the ad for a VitaminWater contest that you can’t enter (unless you’re one of our loyal Canadian…

  11. Lots of questions for Suns post lockout, no easy answers

    Sep 8, 2011, 2:42 PM EST

    San Antonio Spurs v Phoenix Suns

    As PBT works our way through our “what should your team do during the lockout” series, some answers are pretty easy. Dallas needs to bring back Tyson Chandler and remember where they put that bottle with the lightning in it. Other teams are not so simple. Like the Phoenix Suns. They are not due up…

  12. Amar’e Stoudemire’s back still just “90 percent healthy”

    Sep 7, 2011, 3:19 PM EST

    Amare Stoudemire high five

    UPDATE 3:19 pm: Amar’e Stoudemire himself said his back is getting better. Or at least it’s getting better at a faster pace than the NBA Labor talks are getting better. Basically, he’ll be ready to go Oct. 1 if the league is. From the New York Post. “I feel great,’’ Stoudemire said. “Been resting all…

  13. Video: Watch Justin Bieber cross Steve Nash

    Sep 5, 2011, 9:43 AM EST

    Justin Bieber

    Justin Bieber and Steve Nash — two guys with cult-like followings that think their hero can do no wrong. Two guys with great hair. Two guys matched up on the basketball court, where Bieber — he of the All-Star Weekend celebrity game — crosses Nash and gets to the hole. Bur really, the best part…

  14. Nash not going overseas, wants to stay in Phoenix

    Jul 28, 2011, 9:47 AM EST

    Minnesota Timberwolves v Phoenix Suns

    Steve Nash is a homebody. While other players are signing or flirting with teams overseas, Nash said he’s not going. The All-Star point guard is on a promotional tour in China and while Carmelo Anthony and Chris Paul said they would consider playing a season in China if the lockout drags on, Nash said no…

  15. Derrick Rose saved his best for the best defenses

    Jul 27, 2011, 2:19 PM EST

    Chicago Bulls v Atlanta Hawks - Game Four

    We get it, you don’t need to remind us Chicago — Derrick Rose is a stud. An MVP. One of the new faces of the game. On top of all that, last season he played his best against the best defenses in the league. Every summer over at Basketball-Reference Neil Paine does an interesting analysis…

  16. Aaron Brooks is happy being Steve Nash’s backup for now

    Jul 27, 2011, 8:41 AM EST

    aaron-brooks-suns-qo

    Being the backup point guard in Phoenix can seem a no-win job. No matter what you do, you are not Steve Nash. This is Nash’s team. This is Nash’s city (which is why they are not likely to trade him). You are the guy that takes the floor while Nash lies down by the bench…

  17. Trading Nash might be bad business for Phoenix

    Jul 25, 2011, 2:11 PM EST

    Steve Nash

    The basic team building model in the NBA has been pretty easy to understand — you’re either a contending team or building to get there, and if you’re a contending team whose championship window has closed you blow it up and start over with young players. It takes a few years (maybe more than a…

  18. Video: Steve Nash scores a parking space, does a happy dance

    Jul 18, 2011, 4:33 PM EST

    Ever wonder what Steve Nash does after practice? Me neither. But the fine folks at Toyota decided to give us a glimpse at one of the possibilities anyway, and it involves driving a Prius, needlessly beating out an elderly woman for a space in a wide open parking lot, and then taunting her with some…

  19. Nash headlines your daily European lockout working vacation update

    Jul 17, 2011, 9:37 AM EST

    Portland Trail Blazers v Phoenix Suns

    It’s a tough line to walk, believe it or not. Your favorite players leaving to play overseas is definitely news, it affects their health, their conditioning, and lets you know there’s something to keep an eye on, in terms of their production. But with so many players talking about going (pretty much everyone it seems…

  20. Free agent Aaron Brooks expects to return to Phoenix

    Jul 13, 2011, 10:27 AM EST

    aaron-brooks-suns-qo

    Damn lockout. Right now we should be up to our necks in free agent signings, rumors of signings and the fun that can be player movement in the off-season. Instead we’re talking if Nate Robinson can play NFL cornerback. Which is about as likely as the Celtics landing Dwight Howard. Point guard Aaron Brooks would…

  21. Suns extend qualifying offer to Aaron Brooks

    Jun 23, 2011, 3:01 PM EST

    aaron-brooks-suns-qo

    The Phoenix Suns have extended a qualifying offer to restricted free agent guard Aaron Brooks, according to a team press release. The offer is reported to be in the neighborhood of $3 million, and ensures that the team has the right to match any offers that Brooks receives from other teams in free agency. Brooks…

  22. Steve Nash will definitely stay in Phoenix, unless he doesn’t

    Jun 22, 2011, 5:41 PM EST

    Channing Frye Steve Nash

    Here’s the full report, from The Arizona Republic’s Paul Coro: It was appropriate that Steve Nash had to reiterate his stance on his Suns commitment on the same day his team president, Lon Babby, needed to reiterate the franchise’s commitment to him. Babby again stated that the Suns will not be trading Nash, nor have they initiated talks…

  23. Despite rumors everywhere, Suns say Nash not being traded

    Jun 22, 2011, 10:21 AM EST

    Steve Nash

    It was maybe the craziest rumor of this draft… which is saying something. Steve Nash to the Minnesota Timberwolves for the No. 2 pick was discussed, according to Marc Stein at ESPN. He went on to say in the article it was unlikely because Nash wants to go to a contender, not a 17-win team.…

  24. Stunning news: Knicks would still like to get Steve Nash

    Jun 21, 2011, 2:38 PM EST

  25. Video: Steve Nash’s soccer trick shot

    Jun 14, 2011, 12:35 PM EST

    Boston Celtics v Phoenix Suns

    Just for fun, we bring you Steve Nash pimping Chinese athletics company Lu You in a new ad for the company (run overseas). You know Nash loves soccer and plays all summer, so this shot really shouldn’t come as a shock, but it is pretty cool. Lu You is the Chinese shoe company Nash inked…
