Steve Nash

  1. Phoenix is Amar'e Stoudemire's "Plan A." As long as they pay him.

    Jun 11, 2010, 12:08 PM EDT

    It’s all about the money. Amar’e Stoudemire threw a verbal bouquet to Phoenix on the last day of his youth basketball camp. But it came with the caveat — he wants to be paid. The Arizona Republic has the quote. Stoudemire called signing a contract extension with the Suns this month “Plan A.” “Camp colors…

  2. Steve Nash to cover the world cup

    Jun 2, 2010, 12:32 PM EDT

    Steve Nash may not be competing in the NBA finals, but he’ll be a part of something much bigger in scope. CBS Sports announced today that Nash will be a part of their coverage of the World Cup in his native South Africa. Apparently Nash is set to contribute video segments to CBS’ coverage of…

  3. Lakers looking ahead to Celtics, Suns wonder what is next

    May 30, 2010, 11:00 AM EDT

    Phil Jackson told Paul Pierce this is the matchup he wanted. Kobe just sees another hurdle in his way. Alvin Gentry only sees Kobe Bryant. Steve Nash tries to see the future.  

  4. NBA Playoffs Suns Lakers Game 6: Where do the Suns go from here?

    May 30, 2010, 4:56 AM EDT

    The thing about the Phoenix mythology? The bird does die again. The Phoenix Suns rose from the ashes this year, returning to the playoffs and not only advancing to the Western Conference Finals, but pushing the Lakers in a competitive series despite their numerous mismatches. So the natural question to ask is “What’s next?” The…

  5. NBA Playoffs Suns Lakers Game 6: Is everything else for the Suns gravy?

    May 29, 2010, 5:08 PM EDT

    The Suns take the floor tonight for Game 6 versus the defending champion Los Angeles Lakers an underdog. They are considered out-sized, out-talented, and outmatched. But the Suns have shown resiliency in this series, coming back from a dour 0-2 deficit to even the series, then pushing the Lakers to the very wire. The Lakers…

  6. NBA Playoffs, Lakers Suns Game 6: In this Wild West saloon game the cards are on the table, it's about the faster draw

    May 29, 2010, 2:41 PM EDT

    Think of the Suns/Lakers series as a poker game in an old Wild West saloon somewhere outside Phoenix. By Game 6, the cards are on the table. Both teams have gone all-in and flipped their two cards over. All that’s left to do is flip over the turn and river cards. Meaning the strategy is…

  7. NBA Playoffs, Lakers Suns Game 6: The Suns don't know self-pity, in fact they may be more confident now than ever

    May 28, 2010, 2:17 PM EDT

    The Lakers players were still mobbing Ron Artest, the Staples Center crowd still singing “I Love LA” (and missing the irony of the lyrics). The Suns had slid back into their locker room, and Suns coach Alvin Gentry said Steve Nash was the first to speak. “Time to forget about this game, time to move…

  8. NBA Playoffs, Lakers Suns Game 5: talking Ron Artest

    May 28, 2010, 11:02 AM EDT

    Phil Jackson wasn’t sure why he was in, but Ron Artest made the play of the day. It’s all about the little things, like just boxing out.  

  9. NBA Playoffs, Lakers Suns Game 5: Phoenix may have lost, but Steve Nash was absolutely bananas

    May 28, 2010, 2:33 AM EDT

    The Suns were right there. They were within striking distance, with plenty left in the tank, and thanks to a miracle three by Jason Richardson, had a real shot at forcing overtime and taking the decisive Game 5. It just wasn’t meant to be. Ron Artest’s put-back crushed those hopes with a few bounces on…

  10. NBA Playoffs, Lakers Suns Game 5: And Ron Artest shall save them

    May 28, 2010, 1:32 AM EDT

    Phil Jackson has seen everything. Well, except a player go from goat to hero faster than Ron Artest did on Thursday night, he said. With one minute left and the Lakers up three, Artest took an early-in-the-shot-clock three that literally had half of Staples Center yelling, “nooooo.” Fans scorned him — “Trevor Ariza never would…

  11. NBA Playoffs, Lakers Suns Game 5: Forget the bright shiny offenses, this one is all about the defense

    May 27, 2010, 2:50 PM EDT

    It’s not about Kobe Bryant seemingly scoring at will this series. Or Pau Gasol in the post. It’s not about Amare Stoudemire or the awakening of the Suns bench. It’s about defense — that is what has decided every game in this series up to now, it is what will decide Game 5 tonight at…

  12. NBA Playoffs, Lakers Suns Game 4: Phoenix will need more than a zone to win this one

    May 25, 2010, 2:33 PM EDT

    Let’s just be up front — Phoenix is not going to zone their way to a win tonight. Oh, they can still win, but they will have to do it another way. They will have to maintain that aggression and quick decision making on offense. They will have to crash the boards hard again. They…

  13. You're going to need more than a broken nose to stop Steve Nash

    May 24, 2010, 3:08 PM EDT

    Steve Nash has a broken nose. Officially, he has “a minimally displaced nasal fracture with displaced cartilage,” as Yahoo’s Mark Spears tweeted. That is still a fancy way of saying he has a broken nose. He will have to have a minor procedure to correct it, but he is not going to miss any game…

  14. NBA Playoffs, Lakers Suns Game 3: The Phoenix starters came up big on a rare off-night for the heralded reserves

    May 24, 2010, 2:13 AM EDT

    The Suns’ reserves have been the heart and soul of Phoenix’s extended playoff run. Goran Dragic, Leandro Barbosa, Channing Frye, Jared Dudley, and Louis Amundson have each had their moment in the spotlight, with their collective shooting, energy, savvy, and synergy making all the difference for the Suns in these playoffs. That wasn’t exactly the…

  15. NBA Playoffs Lakers Suns Game 2: pick your poison with the Lakers offense

    May 20, 2010, 9:44 AM EDT

    The versatility of the Lakers offense is proving too much for the Suns — it’s not just inside, it’s outside as well. The Lakers know it and know how to exploit it, while the Suns are searching for answers. And sounding dazed .  

  16. NBA Playoffs, Lakers Suns Game 1: Kobe don't need no stinkin' practice

    May 18, 2010, 9:54 AM EDT

    No practice for a week. Fluid drained from your knee. So what? These little inconveniences did not slow Kobe Bryant in Game 1 against the Suns. He dropped 40 and was a key reason the Lakers won big to take a 1-0 series lead. The Suns will make adjustments, although there may not be many…

  17. NBA Playoffs, Lakers v. Suns Game 1: Everything's coming up Lakers

    May 18, 2010, 12:02 AM EDT

    Game 1 of the Western Conference Finals made one thing abundantly clear: unless the Suns are able to come up with some truly remarkable performances, the Lakers will win this series. L.A. is so talented and so long that they’ll receive the benefit of the doubt in almost every regard, and barring a transcendent performance…

  18. Steve Nash is less than heartbroken at Phil Jackson's disapproval

    May 15, 2010, 10:35 PM EDT

    Earlier, Phil Jackson decided to go ahead and get his shots in at Steve Nash, talking about arguably the best point guard in the league as if he were simply skirting the rules by carrying the ball consistently. Because, you know, whatever advantage you can get, you should get when you only have the best…

  19. NBA Playoffs, Lakers Suns Game 1: Phil Jackson can't resist a little dig at Steve Nash

    May 14, 2010, 11:33 PM EDT

    Is it really a big Lakers playoff series if Phil Jackson doesn’t take a stab at an opposing city or player? Nope. So I guess we have a series. After Lakers practice Friday Phil Jackson was asked if it was hard to simulate in practice what Steve Nash does in a game. We have his…

  20. Robert Horry thinks the NBA has become a soft "quarterback league"

    May 10, 2010, 2:24 PM EDT

    Steve Nash was bloodied and injured, just another series for him against the San Antonio Spurs. Except this time it was an inadvertent Tim Duncan elbow that left him with an eye almost swollen shut. That brought back memories of Robert Horry. He has gone in the minds of some from being “Big Shot Bob”…

  21. NBA Playoffs, Suns v. Spurs: Should Nash's performance be immortalized?

    May 10, 2010, 12:43 PM EDT

    For the majority of the NBA year, injuries are temporary roadblocks. They’re set-backs that while inconvenient or possibly crippling, are mostly considered to be minor negative obstacles. There are overreactions to a foot injury here or a knee injury there, but for the most part they are self-contained, isolated events that create a bit of…

  22. NBA Playoffs, Suns v. Spurs Game 4: The deed is done.

    May 10, 2010, 1:15 AM EDT

    The Phoenix Suns just swept the San Antonio Spurs. The Phoenix Suns just swept the San Antonio Spurs. The Phoenix Suns just swept the San Antonio Spurs. Maybe if I type that phrase enough times, the basketball gods will tie my precious typing fingers into knots for my blasphemy. In what universe could the Suns…

  23. NBA Playoffs Suns Spurs Game 3: Parker to start

    May 7, 2010, 9:06 PM EDT

    Head coach Gregg Popovich said in his pregame comments that Tony Parker will start tonight, with George Hill headed to the bench. Parker presents a much tougher matchup for Steve Nash, whose hesitation dribble also gave Hill trouble. Nash has had difficulty staying with Parker for, oh, five years. Parker’s been shooting from range well,…

  24. Grant Hill will be back with the Suns next year. Did you know he is old?

    May 7, 2010, 7:13 PM EDT

    Grant Hill thinks it’s pretty funny that there seems to be a law requiring announcers to say his age every time they say his name. “It’s 37-year-old Grant Hill with the three.” “Look at how Grant Hill fill the lane on the break at age 37.” “Look at Grant Hill, still able to take a…

  25. Amare Stoudemire earning some extra offseason cash

    May 6, 2010, 12:21 PM EDT

    Amare Stoudemire is a force of nature, and when Steve Nash is feeding him passes on the pick-and-roll he is an unstoppable one. That combo, that play is the most pure thing in the NBA right now. Now is the time to look like a force of nature, what with Stoudemire able to — and…
