I ripped an MT single and pulled this opal Nash, and I was hyped to use him.

Bought for: Pulled

Strengths:

  • Inside scoring: Dunks frequently with really simple animations but sometimes are really slow and can get blocked easily. Layups are solid, but depending on who's guarding he will get blocked as he is only 6'3

  • Passing: This is Nash's craft and he will dish passes to the next city with his HOF dimer, expect alot of easy assists with him
  • Defence/Steals: 2k damn near made this man a lockdown. He grabs tonnes of steals and has no problem guarding players upto 6'8/9 (depending if they have base 11 or not )

Weaknesses:

  • Rebounding: Not expected to be great though

  • Shooting: So many people are hyped to see this card has base 8, however from my experience this is the most inconsistent release in the game. I was playing a tto game, and legit missed 5 wide open 3s in a row (bailed out with boogie on the offensive glass) but he seems to miss so many easy shots.

-Height(?) : I didn't find his height to be a problem really, but if you don't like using real point guards, stay clear of him.

Recommended Strategy: Run plays for your shooters with that hof dimer for easy 3s, run plays for Nash, steals on defence for easy fast break points

Use if: "You want an athletic playmaking point guard who will grab you crazy steals

Don't use if: "You need more height or an extremely consistent shooter

Bottom Line: I'm going to sell this Nash card, I don't believe he is worth it, I would say PD Steph is a much better card to run with.
