Steve Nash

  1. Five trades we’d like to see (and we’re not talking ‘Melodrama)

    Feb 16, 2011, 2:57 PM EDT

    Boston Celtics v Phoenix Suns

    It’s been quiet. Too quiet. Serious trade chatter is down around the league. People are talking but there is less meaningful dialogue going on than in an Adam Sandler movie. Maybe it’s fear of the new CBA. Maybe it’s Carmelo Anthony creating a bottleneck. Maybe people are too busy playing Angry Birds. Well, we are…

  2. Timberwolves a “determined suitor” for Nash

    Feb 11, 2011, 6:14 PM EDT

    Steve Nash Timberwolves

    Courtesy of Marc Stein, who is always on the ball: Minnesota was one of the teams identified in last week’s story — along with Atlanta, Orlando, Portland, Toronto and Nash’s old friend Dallas — as a determined suitor for Nash. The Wolves, sources say, have called Phoenix as much as anyone, despite that they’re well…

  3. PBT Wednesday morning one liners

    Feb 9, 2011, 9:16 AM EDT

    Minnesota Timberwolves v Boston Celtics

    Kevin Love’s 20 and 14 Tuesday night gave him 38 consecutive double -doubles this season, just six short of the all-time consecutive double-double streak belonging to Moses Malone. He could tie it against Memphis Feb. 23 and break it Feb. 24 against New Orleans, both at home Steve Nash, once again, saying he does not…

  4. Just a reminder, Steve Nash is the superstar everyone’s clamoring for, except for the defense thing

    Feb 5, 2011, 3:30 PM EDT

    Boston Celtics v Phoenix Suns

    We’re on a dicey ledge here, so hang on to the wall, won’t you? Steve Nash is the superstar you want on your team. While everyone from LeBron James to Dwight Howard to Carmelo Anthony to Rip Hamilton have either left their teams or threatened to leave their teams, Nash is bypassing any and all…

  5. John Wall and the cupboard of Doritos

    Jan 31, 2011, 1:20 PM EDT

    Washington Wizards v New York Knicks

    NBA players — even with all that money and all those professional trainers and nutritionists at their fingertips — fall into some bad eating habits like the rest of us. Coming out of college — where they had buffets of food in the dining hall and coaches trying to get them to bulk up for…

  6. Suns owner says Nash not being traded, expects team to come together

    Jan 28, 2011, 11:00 AM EDT

    Suns Robert Sarver

    Suns owner Robert Sarver is optimistic. Or delusional if you want. Your pick. He told the Arizona Republic that this team is not that far removed from last season’s version that rode a hot streak to the Western Conference finals. That’s pretty darn optimistic (or delusional) — this year’s version is five games back of…

  7. Suns president apologizes to fans for team’s play

    Jan 13, 2011, 11:35 AM EDT

    Lon Babby

    Tuesday night, a reeling Denver Nuggets team blew out the Phoenix Suns (that loss would have gotten a lot more attention if the Cavs hadn’t been historically bad and LeBron hadn’t tweeted about it). That loss was the Suns eighth in their last 10 games. Wednesday morning, Suns president Lon Babby went on his weekly…

  8. Who are the best mid-range shooters in the league?

    Jan 10, 2011, 5:12 PM EDT

    Dirk Nowitzki

    The mid-range game is becoming a bit of a lost art in the NBA, and for good reason: according to Hoopdata.com, NBA players make 64% of their shots at the rim and 36.2% of their threes (which translates to an eFG% of 54.3%), but only make 38.4% of their shots from 10-15 feet and 39.7%…

  9. What’s the upside of trading Steve Nash?

    Jan 8, 2011, 9:58 AM EDT

    Minnesota Timberwolves v Phoenix Suns

    Steve Nash has made it pretty clear: He’s not asking out of Phoenix. Not going to happen. As he says it, he “signed up for this.” And Lon Babby, Suns GM, certainly doesn’t sound like a guy itching to pull the trigger on any move for Nash, calling him the “sun, the moon, and the…

  10. Stoudemire says Suns contract offer made him feel “unappreciated”

    Jan 7, 2011, 11:33 AM EDT

    New York Knicks v Charlotte Bobcats

    The fans in Phoenix appreciated Amar’e Stoudemire. They would chant “M-V-P” him (of course, fans seem to chant that for everyone now). He was part the most deadly pick-and-roll combination in the league and was at the heart of a team that had just advanced to the Western Conference finals in front of raucous crowds.…

  11. Steve Nash does not sound like a guy pushing for a trade

    Jan 6, 2011, 8:07 PM EDT

    Steve Nash

    It ultimately may be the smart thing for the Phoenix Suns to trade Steve Nash — if you are going to tear it all down and rebuild, you can jump-start the process by what you get back for him. But don’t expect Nash to push for a trade. Not in his nature. Look at what…

  12. Steve Nash leaves Nike to sign with Chinese brand Luyou

    Jan 6, 2011, 1:18 PM EDT

    Steve Nash

    It’s not every day you see a major NBA star leaving Nike. But that’s just what Steve Nash has done, in a story found by Counterkicks (via SLAM). Nike confirmed in a statement that Nash has left them, ending a 15-year relationship between the two. Nash now is with Chinese brand Luyou. But Nash is…

  13. Report: Suns “on the fence” about trading Steve Nash

    Jan 4, 2011, 11:21 AM EDT

    Portland Trail Blazers v Phoenix Suns

    Just a few weeks ago, Suns owner Robert Sarver was saying emphatically that Steve Nash would not be traded. But since then the Suns have struggled — 3-7 in their last 10 — and however they try to spin it the recent trade with Orlando was not going to make the Suns better right now.…

  14. Steve Nash has an angry side

    Dec 30, 2010, 12:41 PM EDT

    Steve Nash

    Maybe it’s that stable Canadian upbringing, but Steve Nash is one of the most even-tempered guys in the league. Which is why when he loses it, you take notice. The Suns were not getting the breaks or calls late in Wednesday night’s loss to the Sixers — and that was a fourth straight loss for…

  15. Vince Carter expected to debut for Suns Wednesday

    Dec 29, 2010, 11:23 AM EDT

    Vince Carter,

    Steve Nash tweeted Tuesday night he was excited about Vince Carter‘s entry into the Phoenix lineup. It’s gonna be fun. He can do things no one on our team can do and will improve us The fun starts Wednesday night — Carter will make his debut for the Suns against the Philadelphia 76ers, coach Alvin…

  16. Steve Nash sells the company line on big trade

    Dec 20, 2010, 10:16 AM EDT

    Steve Nash

    Steve Nash is a company man. As evidence, look what he told the Arizona Republic about the weekend trade that sent out Jason Richardson (and Hedo Turkoglu, technically, although not a huge loss there) and gave him Vince Carter, Mickael Pietrus and Marcin Gortat. “I’m optimistic that it can help us short- and long-term,” Suns…

  17. Suns owners says Nash will not be traded

    Dec 19, 2010, 8:22 PM EDT

    Steve Nash

    The Phoenix Suns end of the trade with Orlando was about saving money — getting the bloated Turkoglu deal off the books, getting in a Vince Carter contract that can be bought out next year. It was about clearing out cap space for the future while not making the team drastically weaker in the short-term…

  18. Steve Nash admits leg injury has hurt his shooting

    Dec 16, 2010, 6:23 PM EDT

    Nash_Pass2

    Steve Nash is a career 43 percent shooter from beyond the arc. In 14 NBA seasons only one time did he shoot less than 40 percent on the season, and he still shot a respectable 37.4 percent. So you know something is wrong when since Nov. 15 — when he strained his groin — Nash…

  19. Pro Basketball Crosstalk: On the cultural currency of the MVP award

    Dec 14, 2010, 12:03 PM EDT

    Amar'e Stoudemire

    Let’s face it: there are some topics in basketball that are best tackled by having two writers talk past each other at gradually increasing volumes. We’re not making any progress unless we’re yelling our way through the real issues, and that’s precisely what John Krolik and Rob Mahoney hope to accomplish in Pro Basketball Crosstalk.…

  20. Rajon Rondo’s rare feat: averaging more assists than points

    Dec 5, 2010, 1:30 PM EDT

    Rajon Rondo

    Rajon Rondo sat out today against the New Jersey Nets, his hamstring still sore and the team wanting to play it safe. Why safe? Because Rondo is having a historic season. So far, Rondo is averaging 14.1 assists and 11.4 points per game, orchestrating a more balanced Celtics attack. In a great note at the…

  21. Other Game of the Night: Jason Richardson wins his homecoming in Oakland

    Dec 3, 2010, 5:55 AM EDT

    Stephen Curry Steve Nash

    What, there was another game Thursday night? Yes, one with a big homecoming too — Jason Richardson returned to Oakland… okay, maybe we can let this theme of the night go. But the Suns beat the Warriors 107-101 and Richardson did have 25 points. Both teams were in triple digits but the game wasn’t as…

  22. Alvin Gentry lets his bench know Steve Nash needs some rest

    Nov 26, 2010, 6:00 PM EDT

    Chicago Bulls v Phoenix Suns

    Hello Goran Dragic. We’re looking right at you. Steve Nash has averaged 34.8 minutes per game this season, which is up two minutes a game from last season. The man is 36, has groin and foot soreness this season, and has been battling a bad back since, roughly, 1978. Nash needs to be playing fewer…

  23. Josh Smith says Hawks not planning to trade him

    Nov 22, 2010, 1:52 PM EDT

    Larry Drew and Josh Smith

    Josh Smith has come up in a lot of rumors lately, from the ridiculous (Rip Hamilton, really?) to big move stuff like Steve Nash rumors. With Al Horford inked to a big deal, can they really keep Smith long term, too? But the Hawks told Josh Smith he’s not going anywhere, which is what Smith…

  24. Steve Nash to sit out Saturday in Charlotte, may miss Monday also

    Nov 20, 2010, 4:20 PM EDT

    Steve Nash

    Pelvic instability is no laughing matter. Sure, it kind of sounds like it should be, but it’s not. So stop snickering. It’s keeping Steve Nash out of his second consecutive game Saturday night in Charlotte, and he likely will miss Monday in Houston, also, according to Paul Coro of the Arizona Republic. Officially, this is…

  25. Steve Nash sits with “pelvic instability,” which doesn’t sound like fun

    Nov 18, 2010, 9:13 PM EDT

    Steve Nash

    Steve Nash sat out Thursday night’s Suns game due to a “sore groin” according to the Associated Press. According to the TNT broadcast team, Nash was resting with what was called “pelvic instability.” I have no idea what that is (there is an easy a joke here about a girl I dated in college, but…
