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."

Nash wants to rest? Sounds like Shaq's work ethic is getting a little contagious in PHX.
"You have to understand, I love L.A., I love being our ambassador, I love bringing people together," he said. "It's funny, but I guess it still feels like I'm playing point guard, but in a different way, doing stuff more meaningful than winning."
