Steve Nash

  1. Monday morning one liners

    Dec 19, 2011, 11:04 AM EDT

    Kevin Durant, Richard Jefferson

    Our morning look around the NBA with stories worth reading and notes that are not their own post here at PBT. A fantastic read at Hoopspeak.com on what the Thunder need to do to get Kevin Durant more open looks. After signing Baron Davis for the mini mid-level, the Knicks are out of the running…

  2. Suns successful in avoiding media circus around Nash’s impending free agency

    Dec 18, 2011, 12:04 PM EDT

    Minnesota Timberwolves v Phoenix Suns

    The Suns held their annual media day on Friday, and overall, things were pretty quiet. Too quiet, even. Especially when you consider that the face of the franchise, heart and soul of the team, and two-time MVP Steve Nash is playing in the final year of his contract, and will be an unrestricted free agent…

  3. New York will be better, but fans will be thinking about what’s next

    Dec 16, 2011, 1:30 PM EDT

    Amare Stoudemire, Tyson Chandler, Carmelo Anthony

    The New York Knicks are going to win a playoff game this year. For the first time since 2001. Having Carmelo Anthony and Amar’e Stoudemire together for a full season will boost the offense, having Tyson Chandler along the back line will turn them from terrible to average on defense (or maybe a little better,…

  4. NBA Season Preview: Phoenix Suns

    Dec 15, 2011, 5:12 PM EDT

    nash-gentry-preview

    Last season: 40-42, good for 10th place in the West, and six games out of the playoff picture. Head Coach: Alvin Gentry Key Departures: Vince Carter was waived by the team and was picked up by Dallas. Aaron Brooks signed to play in China just before the lockout was resolved, and while the Suns still…

  5. NBA Season Preview: New York Knicks

    Dec 15, 2011, 6:30 AM EDT

    Amare Stoudemire, Carmelo Anthony

    Last season: 42-40 — good enough for a middling playoff seed and a first round sweep at the hands of the Boston Celtics. Head Coach: Mike D’Antoni, who has an intriguing roster but will have to step out of his comfort zone. As a playmaker, Toney Douglas isn’t Steve Nash…or Raymond Felton…or Chauncey Billups. As…

  6. Chris Paul traded to Clippers: The salvation of Blake Griffin

    Dec 14, 2011, 11:30 PM EDT

    chris-paul-blake-griffin

    Blake Griffin is going to have it different. That’s what the Wednesday night trade of Chris Paul to Griffin’s Clippers represents. There’s been a precedent set in this league, where great players have their youths squandered on poor teams, suffering without help. The most notable has been Kevin Garnett, and after him, LeBron James, whose…

  7. Suns training camp notes: High hopes for Telfair, improvement for Lopez, dealing with Pietrus

    Dec 12, 2011, 1:10 AM EDT

    Timberwolves Telfair Basketball

    The Phoenix Suns are holding training camp in town this week at Grand Canyon University. Here are some notes from Sunday’s morning and evening practice sessions: – The Suns were without Grant Hill, Sebastian Telfair, and Markieff Morris for their morning practice session, but had them on the floor for the evening session, once Vince…

  8. Suns may look to limit players’ minutes thanks to compressed schedule

    Dec 11, 2011, 4:43 PM EDT

    nash-warmup

    The NBA lockout was resolved just in time to still give us a season, but it’s a 66-game schedule that’s jam-packed into a little over three and a half months. That’s something all teams are going to be forced to deal with, but in Phoenix, where two of the team’s best players in Steve Nash…

  9. Grant Hill agrees to one-year deal to stay with Suns

    Dec 9, 2011, 12:23 PM EDT

    Sacramento Kings v Phoenix Suns

    Not everybody wants to play for the Knicks. Grant Hill has decided to stay with Steve Nash — and the warm winter weather of Phoenix — and has agreed to a one-year, $6.5 million deal to play for the Suns this season, reports Paul Coro of the Arizona Republic. The Suns were long considered the…

  10. Report: Suns “close” to signing Sebastian Telfair

    Dec 8, 2011, 11:39 AM EDT

    Sebastian Telfair

    The Suns dealt for Aaron Brooks at last season’s trade deadline, in hopes that he might be a long-term solution at point guard for the team — both as a backup to Steve Nash, and possibly as his someday-replacement. Brooks was to be a restricted free agent this season, and while it’s unclear whether or…

  11. Don’t bet on Grant Hill heading East just yet. Or is he…

    Dec 8, 2011, 10:07 AM EDT

    Dallas Mavericks v Phoenix Suns

    UPDATE 10:07 am: I guess it depends on where the news is coming from. While Arizona says Hill is staying put, more reports in the New York Post Thursday say Grant Hill is about to be a Knick. “It’s not 100 percent done, but he’s leaning,’’ one source said. The Bulls and San Antonio also…

  12. Report: Grant Hill leaning toward Knicks, not Suns

    Dec 7, 2011, 11:00 AM EDT

    Sacramento Kings v Phoenix Suns

    The conventional wisdom is that, like so many people in their “golden years,” Grant Hill was going to spend the rest of his (playing) days in the warm sun and great training facilities of Phoenix. But maybe he is going to trade that in for a cold but exciting New York Winter. That’s what Marc…

  13. Circle your calendars: Games not to miss on NBA schedule

    Dec 6, 2011, 8:36 PM EDT

    LeBron James Miami Heat Dallas Mavericks

    We’re not so presumptuous as to tell you what to watch… well, yes we are. There is an NBA schedule littered with good games worth watching that was just released today. What follows are the games that leapt off the page at us as ones not to miss. Dec. 25: Miami Heat at Dallas Mavericks:…

  14. Grant Hill choices down to Suns, Clippers, Knicks, Bulls

    Dec 5, 2011, 12:34 PM EDT

    Sacramento Kings v Phoenix Suns

    It’s going to come down to what Grant Hill really, really wants. He has narrowed his free agent teams down to four quite different choices, reports David Aldridge at NBA.com. Grant Hill has his free agent Final Four, according to sources: the incumbent Suns, the Clippers, the Bulls and the Knicks. Each provides its own…

  15. Grant Hill’s return to Suns a “big issue” for Steve Nash

    Dec 1, 2011, 11:29 PM EDT

    steve nash-grant hill

    The Suns have already made it clear that bringing back Grant Hill this season, who is currently an unrestricted free agent, is a “first order of business and a top priority.” In case you may have thought they weren’t putting enough pressure on themselves to retain Hill’s services, Steve Nash — who you may have…

  16. Friday one liners: Steve Nash vs. Jason Kidd charity game

    Nov 25, 2011, 6:57 PM EDT

    kidd-nash

    Like the leftovers you are trying to fashion into meal, here are few things scattered around today we are fashioning into a post. • Up at UC Berkley (what you call Cal) there is a charity game scheduled now for Dec. 10 billed as “Steve Nash vs. Jason Kidd” (via the twitter of Yahoo’s Marc…

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

    Nov 3, 2011, 1:42 PM EDT

    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…

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

    Oct 27, 2011, 5:54 PM EDT

    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…

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

    Oct 12, 2011, 3:33 PM EDT

    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…

  20. NBA player reactions to lockout all over twitter

    Oct 11, 2011, 8:44 AM EDT

    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…

  21. Nash makes twitter plea for owners to end lockout

    Oct 10, 2011, 5:01 PM EDT

    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…

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

    Sep 29, 2011, 3:18 PM EDT

    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…

  23. What the Suns should do when the lockout ends

    Sep 21, 2011, 12:30 PM EDT

    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…

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

    Sep 18, 2011, 8:36 PM EDT

    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…

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

    Sep 14, 2011, 11:35 AM EDT

    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…
