The Suns are still in the playoff picture but are no lock, and the outlook doesn't look bright with how Amare Stoudemire and Shaquille O'Neal need to share the ball. Only Steve Nash is untouchable, according to sources.

"A lot of mouths to feed," said Nash. "I’m willing to just feed and feed. But then they get mad at me because they want me to be aggressive. They want me to make big shots down the stretch, so they need me to shoot periodically during the game.

"It’s difficult. It’s difficult for the reasons you said, and it’s difficult to find the balance, that aggressiveness for me."

Nash needs the ball in transition, needs to run because Shaquille O'NEal clogs the lane in the halfcourt. “Or otherwise,” Nash said, “I’m going to be a little sacrificial. …So trying to get Amare off, getting, Shaq off … getting [Jason Richardson], Grant [Hill], Leandro [Barbosa]. …A lot of mouths to feed.”


Sounds like there is no chemistry on that team... at all.

Haha. A year or 2 back I would've enjoyed this, but I dunno the Suns are just completely irrelevant to me now.

I still enjoy it. The Suns and Shaq are failing. It's like killing two birds with one stone type of thing.

seriously. i find it funny when my dad watches his suns and all i hear is "Noooooooo" or " ugh (place a suns player here)"

i think they should consider trading nash now. hes not the point guard for that half court type system. shaq has always had that aggressive scoring guard at his side. Not that J-rich doesnt fit that role, i just think that the team could be better with a Baron Davis type guard. A guy thats looking to score in the clutch moments. Somebody with a Mamba like attitude if you will. They may be in the desert but there are no snakes on the suns.

It's called being a point guard, Stevie.

But horrible for our defense. Everyone complains about Fisher and Farmar, Nash is terrible even compared to them.

Steve Nash is horrible for the triangle...

Everyone should know by now, that Steve Nash only excels on the open court setting... Play him on half-court basketball and he will fail (ie. Dallas and current Phoenix Suns), and he makes Derek Fisher looks like Marcus Banks defensively...

Purchase an unsliced loaf of bread, which will stay fresher longer than presliced bread. Any specially baked recipes, such as flavored or spiced bread, should be purchased unsliced.

Seems to me that the suns are getting stale?

shoot i got dibs on shaq as our back-up center

imagine him playing 15 minutes a game and then come playoff time hes 100% fresh and 100% ready to go

andrew gets most center minutes gasol gets to sit now instead of play the other half of those center minutes and shaq gets 15 strong minutes a game and come playoff time we increase it to about 18 to 23 minutes
