wow that's just part of the quote Nash said here is the full quote


Steve Nash, 34, is receptive to the idea of getting more rest. He played in 81 of 82 games last year and averaged 34.3 minutes per game. To put that in perspective, Dallas point guard Jason Kidd, 35, was the only player older than Nash to log as many minutes. Nash points out that San Antonio point guard Tony Parker had fresh legs for the playoffs last May in part because he missed three weeks and 13 games of the regular season with an ankle injury. Of course, Parker is also eight years younger than Nash. "I feel like you can always use the rest," Nash says. "If you can get to the postseason well rested, it's perfect. But you can't always afford to do that." And there's the rub. Is Phoenix good enough that it can sit Nash for 12 games? "I don't know," Nash says. "Probably not." --

No. They're barely going to be good enough as it is. The Suns time has passed. They might win 50 games but a title contender? No.

Phoenix is on the decline so I definitely agree with Nash.

I like his honesty. :clap:

"The very basic core of a man's living spirit is his passion for adventure.
The joy of life comes from our encounters with new experiences,
and hence there is no greater joy than to have an endlessly changing horizon,
for each day to have a new and different sun."

Nope... plain and simple.. Steve Kerr messed that team up. Starting w/ trading Shaw and the lateset in letting D'antoni walk away. Wont even speak about the fat dude clogging the middle..

Maybe Amare will have to carry most of the load now as they let Shaq and Steve Nash rest more.

It won't be a concern for Phoenix too much longer.

Come 2010, I wouldn't be surprised to see him running to the Knicks.
