Nice set of clips here, makes me remember some of those games and how electric they were.

Hope to see this guy back fully healthy next year in that off ball, some of the time playmaking role.   This really does show how deadly he can be when playing it.

Get well soon.

@SteveNash 

Great 6 days rehabbing at http://fortiussport.com  and working out @SNSC ! Love my Province.

I swear every Nash layup just looks like him waltzing casually down the baseline and easing the ball up to effortlessly scoop and score.

albeit the guy can't guard to save his own life. i am dead sure that once he's fully integrated to our core and healthy, he can help us.

He made Pau finish alley-oops. That's how great he is.

Beautiful passing, hopefully he can stay healthy for at least 80% of the season.

I think if he can get healthy he's going to surprise a lot of people next season. He still shot over 49% and over 43% from the three.

 

He still has the court vision he's just not as fast and he plays terrible D. Honestly though most point guards don't play good D.

 

There was a lot of unjustified hate on him this season, IMO.

Some people expect Dwight to go 28/13 and say that Hibbert is better than him.


Some people to expect Nash to have 10 assists when playing off ball and completely ignore his hand in our "miracle" comebacks the same way they discount Dwight coming back healthy in them.


Nash did get a lot of unjustified hate, he's the best point guard we've had in years actually able to get his own shot.  No, he's not Chris Paul, but he doesn't have to be in order to be effective. 

If Fisher or Sessions was our starting point guard does anyone think those comebacks would have happened? That we'd have beaten OKC or the Warriors or the Knicks?

 

The thing is, he came back early just for us and didn't play 100% for the rest of the year afterwards and still put up good numbers and shot a high percentage.   Settling into his off-ball role next year he'll average somewhere between 15-16 ppg and 5 to 6 assists if he remains health and that's just fine.      Other than remaining healthy I'm not worried about his production as much as I'm worried about a guy like Meeks.

And i think he has great defensive awaraness and is a good defensive leader. He leads players to Dwight very effectively. He just can not defend or slow anyone 1-on-1 but that was the case here in LA since i was a little kid.

I never saw a guy so crushed for playing hurt.

GREAT shooter who can do more.

I think he can come back healthy.

Yep, and when used to the off ball role he is our most deadly shooter.

People try to play off like he made no impact and say our 2nd half run was ALL Kobe. Neglecting that for 15 of the last 20 games he played Nash averaged around 17/5 on over 50% shooting and at 3 point percentage that would have landed him 2nd in the league. And that was while injured.

Nash if healthy will shut up a lot of people this year in that off ball role.

Alas father time is catching up. I remember John Stockton in his 40s. He had less injuries and still dictated the game.

But not even close to the same Stockton if even his late 30s.

 

Nash will be 40 mid season .. So even if he is free of injuries, MDA is not the coach for him.

 

Yes .. we got a premier point guard.  But too late in his career. 

This is like marrying a playboy playmate when she is 65.

Umm...you do realize that was a totally different team right?  You like to pigeonhole guys into a role without considering all the factors.  Kobe and Pau are much older, Nash has a bigger responsibility to the team than Fisher ever was asked to have.

But we had old ass Fisher who was far less useful.
