Nash off the bench ? Here's a few reasons why this most likely won't happen:
1. We want to see some Nash/Howard PnR, right ?. Nash being on the bench and not being on the court with Dwight won't help the cause ..
2. Nash can't play a lot of minutes and can't run with speedy guards and most backup PGs in the league are young, athletic and will make Steve looks like trash on D.
3. Nash is superstar, future hall of famer and probably a top 5 PG all-time. He has a huge ego like every other superstar, all time great etc. He won't like being bench no matter how strong of a case you make. This will destroy our chemistry.
@llex, welcome to LN. Don't listen to these guys .. Some of them make a lot worse threads than this

Nash didn't exactly leave a great first impression before his injury. He shot a combined 33% in those first two regular season games, didn't score much in the preseason (like he should have, because he was open quite a bit, only notched one double-digit scoring game in all 10 he has played this year), and played horrible defense against Collison and Lillard.
People are suggesting we bring Gasol off the bench for Jamison (who has done nothing, with the exception of the last two games), in order to strengthen our bench play.
The idea applies here as well, although it's a bit more radical. He's not suggesting that we bring Kobe or Dwight off the bench. Both are proven superstars who are young enough, and healthy enough, to lead a team to a championship. Nash is 39 years old, injured (as of now), and would do well with a struggling bench, much like he did with the players he had in Phoenix over the last couple of seasons.
I don't like the idea, and most won't, but there's no point in blasting a brand new poster for reaching outside of the box, especially in the manner some of you are doing it. I could most definitely go back and find some of your older posts (a lot of you) and wonder how much you had to drink when you were typing.
