Steve Nash

  1. 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…

  2. 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…

  3. 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…

  4. 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”…

  5. 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…

  6. 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…

  7. 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,…

  8. 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…

  9. 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…

  10. Suns, Spurs talk about "Los Suns," Arizona immigration bill

    May 5, 2010, 11:13 AM EDT

    The Suns will take the floor in their Los Suns (really should be Los Sols) jerseys tonight, and that has sparked plenty of controversy in and of itself (check out the comments on our story). Rather than put words in their mouths, we’ll let them speak for themselves.

  11. Suns will wear "Los Suns" Jerseys as part of Arizona immigration bill protest

    May 4, 2010, 5:18 PM EDT

    This took some real cajones. The controversial immigration bill (SB 1070) just signed into law in Arizona — which allows police making a “legal contact” to demand citizenship papers and makes it illegal not to have them on you — is popular with the majority of voters in the state. Those people are the Suns…

  12. NBA Playoffs, Suns v. Spurs Game 1: Stars for Phoenix are hidden in plain view

    May 4, 2010, 12:09 PM EDT

    Steve Nash and Amar’e Stoudemire are All-NBA caliber players, and in this series they will perform and be praised. They’re just too talented not to, and their combined 56 points — as well as their respective double-doubles — speaks to their tremendous impact on the Suns’ huge Game 1 victory over the Spurs. On the…

  13. NBA Playoffs, Suns Spurs Game 1: By the way, Steve Nash can score, too. A lot.

    May 4, 2010, 9:07 AM EDT

    Here’s the counterintuitive trick to beating the Phoenix Suns — you want Steve Nash to score. Seriously. The theory is that when Steve Nash is forced to shoot he is less dangerous than when he is feeding Amare Stoudemire and Grant Hill dunks. Phil Jackson has used this defense with a lot of success. The…

  14. Steve Nash is "Nashty"

    May 3, 2010, 8:44 PM EDT

    It is not my favorite of the Steve Nash movies this season — this one wins that award — but still any movie with a bunch of Nash highlight passes is going to be worth watching.

  15. NBA Playoffs, Suns v. Spurs: And now was acknowledged the presence of the Black and Silver Death

    May 3, 2010, 6:20 PM EDT

    The Phoenix Suns and the San Antonio Spurs will meet for the fourth time in six years, and Steve Nash and friends will try their damnedest to avoid their fourth elimination in as many tries by the Black and Silver Death. You see, some will tell you that the Suns are stylistically doomed to falter…

  16. NBA Playoffs Suns Blazers Game 6: The clock has run out on Portland's tree of woe

    Apr 30, 2010, 1:30 AM EDT

    No shame here. Portland shouldn’t hang their heads for a minute, not for a second. They fell 99-90 to the Phoenix Suns and were eliminated from the playoffs, but they gave the world the fight no one thought they had in them. Without Greg Oden, without Joel Przybilla, and without a healthy Brandon Roy (or…

  17. Deron Williams thinks he's the best point guard in the league

    Apr 28, 2010, 4:24 PM EDT

    Deron Williams speaks the truth. Debatable truth, but truth. He did it at shootaround today, before his Jazz try to eliminate the Nuggets tonight. He told the Denver Post and other assembled media: “I think I’m the best point guard in the league. … I thought I was the best point guard in the league…

  18. NBA Playoffs: Phoenix and Portland are finding a stylistic middle ground

    Apr 26, 2010, 12:49 PM EDT

    The Phoenix Suns and the Portland Trailblazers are stylistic opposites, and it’s been largely assumed that the winner of the series will be the team that can assert their own stylistic preference on their opponent; if the Suns can make the Blazers run, Phoenix would seem to have the advantage, and if the Blazers can…

  19. Rudy Fernandez has been given his chance, but has lost his confidence

    Apr 22, 2010, 1:40 PM EDT

    Remember the Rudy Fernandez from the gold medal game in Beijing? The one with 13 points in nine minutes on the court. The one that made you think “Damn, Portland has another one, another great young player.” That Rudy Fernandez has gone missing. And Portland could really use him, as he is starting in place…

  20. Nicolas Batum a game time decision for Blazers… but he'll play

    Apr 22, 2010, 10:04 AM EDT

    An MRI machine is an insanely expensive piece of equipment, but the Portland Trail Blazers certainly are getting their money’s worth out of theirs this year. The latest news to come out of the machine is good for Portland — Nicolas Batum did no serious damage to his shoulder in game two of the series…

  21. Alvin Gentry, Steve Kerr, and the power of expectation

    Apr 20, 2010, 12:11 PM EDT

    Since the Shaq flub, Steve Kerr’s work as the GM/President of Basketball Ops of the Phoenix Suns has been understated but effective. He flipped Boris Diaw for Jason Richardson and Jared Dudley. He drafted Robin Lopez, who was quickly disregarded as an NBA talent but has made a legitimate impact this season. He acquired Goran…

  22. NBA Playoffs: Blazers need no excuses, take Game One over Suns

    Apr 19, 2010, 1:12 AM EDT

    No Greg Oden. No Joel Przybilla. No Brandon Roy. No homecourt advantage. No problem. The Blazers shocked the Suns in Phoenix to take Game One 105-100. The Blazers were without Brandon Roy, but were simply willing to do whatever it took to get the job done. They crashed the glass on both sides of the…

  23. How many different ways can the Spurs own the Suns?

    Feb 28, 2010, 3:31 PM EDT

    The Suns have won their fair share of regular season games against the Spurs over the past five years. It’s not like they’ve never won against the Spurs. It just feels like it. Jason Richardson missed a wide-open (and I mean WIDE OPEN) breakaway dunk to tie, and Steve Nash randomly passed up on a…

  24. The hidden beneficiary of Steve Nash's absence

    Feb 24, 2010, 12:29 PM EDT

    Despite missing two-time MVP, team captain, spiritual advisor, and auteur Steve Nash, the Phoenix Suns rallied to beat the streaking Oklahoma City Thunder last night. Goran Dragic had 16 points and 10 assists (albeit with six turnovers) in his second ever start, as he continues to convert his critics into true believers. Dragic stands to…

  25. Nash sidelined, enter the Dragic

    Feb 23, 2010, 11:47 AM EDT

    If Steve Nash is the brain of the Phoenix Suns and Amar’e Stoudemire the heart, then I guess that would make Goran Dragic something like a nose or an ear; he provides a service that aids in survival, but he hardly represents something essential for the Phoenix Suns. Until today. According to Paul Coro of…
