    This card is nashty

    5

    He has a ton of cold spots all over the floor, even with them he still shoots well but they seem to effect contested shots, his dribble moves are not elite so don't expect that. Exceptional playmaker and shooter with only 2 hot spots and 7 cold spots. His release is fantastic though.

    4

    best player to never reach an nba final, revolutionized the game and paved the way for steph curry

    5

    I actually think that Nash was better than curry

    3

    thats fair, but i think its pretty hard to argue at this point. he's a better shooter, scorer, rebounder and dribbler who led his team to a title, a 50 game unbeaten home record and is on track to have the best PER for a single season in the history of the league.

    But Nash was actually MVP off of talent alone, not saying steph doesn't have talent, he was leading them to playoffs, but he's a system player and wouldn't be like this if it wasn't for Steve Kerr. He's kind of the Tom Brady of the NBA

    1

    can't argue with that.

    wow... I cant believe how dumb that answer is... Nash won 2 MVPs, but he wasn't necessarily the best player in the league over the 2 years. over the two seasons he was mvp he won 1 player of the month, lebron won 2 in each year. Nash had a worse season statistically than lebron, mcgrady, nowitzki, oneal, kobe and duncan in one of the 2 seasons including worse win shares than all of them. yeah nash won games with his assists, but he had a stacked team with amare, marion, joe johnson and richardson! also if kerr is responsible for the warriors success, well d'antoni was just as responsible for the suns success. also you could see steph's ability since davidson, he's always been an elite scorer and good passer. kerr is definitely not making steph better, kerr isnt making steph able to hit the craziest shots youll ever see, kerr often looks angry at steph for not running a sensible play but it falls and kerr ignores it. also you can watch stephs handles, theyre one of the best in the league, nash never had those handles. nash had insane court vision, passing and a good spot up shooter, but steph has handles, better range, faster release, better rebounding, better inside scoring and can have big games where he puts the team on his back and make 50 points and 10+ 3s in a game. and theres no way curry is doing better being a team player and buying in to the system, if he was on the sixers, lakers, suns etc and was given the green light he'd be averaging 40pts

    1

    not to mention steph will get a second mvp this seaon and could win a second title, nash never reached a playoff final

    1

    you can't blame nash for that. he had prime kobe, prime dirk, prime duncan, and prime kg in the same conference as him

    0

    Yes Nash was a system player to D'antoni to, but Nash had the system revolve around him distributing to his team, You could put any other scoring point guard in stephs position under kerr and the warriors will be the same, in my eyes, draymond is the MVP of that team.

    how doesnt the system revolve around steph? dont you watch the warriors? why is it that the spurs beat the warriors by taking steph out of the game yet they havent beaten them trying any other stratergy? if you can stop the best team in the league by taking out 1 player then youd have to assume that 1 player is pretty important to the teams success... what steph is doing in the league is never seen before, he has too much talent! even in games where his shot isnt falling he uses his passing to win games so its not like hes just a scorer. also you cant give kerr all the credit, its not like hes the best coach in the league with 1 year experience as a coach. you could see steph growing into this elite player since they knocked off the nuggets in the 2013 playoffs and from the 2012 season where he was a role player to the 2013 season where he started they went from 23 to 47 wins. remember draymond green has been on the team since 2013 and their development from a lottery team to a playoff team happened because of curry and a bit thompson. they also won 51 games in 2014 with draymond playing 20 mins per game so clearly draymond isnt soely responsible for the warriors success.

    I said in an earlier comment the system revolves around steph, and if you could read you would see I said the suns system revolved around Nash DISTRIBUTING.

    0

    im going to pretend you didnt assume i cant read as i clearly can... i would lower myself to your level but i dont have to, all im going to say before you deviate from the points im making is that firstly you arguably hinted to the fact the warriors revolve around steph, but you never made it clear. most importantly the fact you say the suns system revolves around nash distributing doesnt help your arguement... please try to stick to the point as i dont want you to waste my time or your own.

    0

    Did I not just say he had all star talent, He is a system player to Kerr, he's the main system player. I'm very sure he is not the one who brought an average first round exit team and made them the best team in the NBA all by himself. He would do statistically great on the sixers or some other bad team but they would have the same record as they do now.

    must for me.... absolutely carried me through challenges and Domination.... in the Human highlight challenge Nash made 9 threes in a row in 9 possessions to take the lead at the very end

    75 lateral quickness, you are in trouble !

    Steve is getting married to a very good former volleyball player. Steve Nash Jr is going to be siiiiiiiick.

    How are his dribble moves and size up moves? i really want him.

    Why? He's a future hall of famer and a two time MVP, no reason he shouldn't have a diamond.

    -1

    He shouldn't have won those MVPs. I can name at least 6 better PGs, he's really overrated.

    1

    I mean as far as I know, someone who takes a 29-53 team and leads them to 60 wins deserves an MVP.

    0

    *With Amar'e Stoudemire, Shawn Marion, MIP Boris Diaw, 6man Leandro Barbosa and young Joe Johnson, among others

    3

    All those people were there when the team went 29-53, what do you have to say now?

    0

    Who should have? and i'm talking about 2k, he needs a diamond.

    In '05 Shaq, in '06 Kobe

    0

    lol shaq, Kobe didn't have a winning team that season.

    1

    "Lol Shaq"? I'd take 23/10/3/.5/2.3 + actual defense over 16/3/12/1/.1 anyday

    Also Kobe had 35ppg. Thats an automatic MVP, especially whem you consider his teamates

    -1

    shaq and kobe were only stat stuffers, didn't actually make people better.

    0

    Neither was Nash. Nash joined a relatively young team that could well have hit 40 wins just from improvement alone.

    0

    But instead of hitting 40 wins (they wouldn't have) they had an NBA best record. Amare was never that good before or after with Nash, Shawn played his best offense with Nash for being a defensive player, The only player that could have done that good without Nash was Joe Johnson and maybe Barbosa.

    0

    Amar'e was a rookie before Nash, after Nash he had a great start with the Knicks (which people forget) but then he kept getting injured. Also Nash played alongside Amar'e in his prime years, he was bound be putting up those numbers with or without Nash.

    Shawn did play slightly better on offense with Nash, but again his body was coincidently hitting its physical prime.

    Nash didn't make that Suns team, they were just really deep. In the years Nash was there they brought in guys like MIP Diaw, 6MotY Barbosa, a young Joe Johnson, young Marcin Gortat, young Dragic, Raja Bell and Matt Barnes, to name a few. That team was stacked over the years.

    0

    The team was really deep, but they ran through Nash, they wouldn't have been the same without him. Amar'e did do amazing in that first knicks year, but because he was there main scorer and he was less efficient than with Nash. I really just want to know why you devalue Steve Nash so much.

    0

    The MVPs thing bugs me mainly because if Kobe would've won in '06 Wade would've won in '08, and Wade>>Nash. Out of everyone considered a top tier PG (Nash, Magic, Stockton, Big O {Side note I also think hes overrated}, IT, CP3, Kidd and Gary Payton, he's the only one with bas defense. Really his offense doesn't even make up for it when compared to these guys.

    why is this a throwback? a throwback to his career?

    when you dislike the whole conversation no matter whos side youre on

    rly?

    -2

    yea

    0

    I think he announced retirement when they were already done with the game. He and Shawn Marion are actually still technically free agents.

    -3

    scalibrines historic but he retired in 2012
    kidd retired in 2013
