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.
