Steve Nash making Amare's career is a myth?
Amare is NOTHING without an in his prime Nash breaking down defenses. Stoudemire was fool's gold from day one, and as usual, the Knicks bought right into it.
No big player on those Suns teams did of anything of significance before or after Nash.
Way too many basketball fans underestimate just how great Nash was during those runs in Phoenix.
One again we agree.
Everything Amar'e got was off of an opening Nash made because the defense rotated.
One should look up just how often Amar'e made offense in an isolation situation without Nash feeding him.
Oh didn't take long... basketball-reference
On 04-05 season 59% of Amare's shots were assisted on. That's nearly 60%.
What about the 06-07 season? 64.9% of Amar'e offense was assisted on...
And in the playoffs of that year? 69.2% of Amare's points were from assists....
That's nearly 70% of his offense!!!
69.9% of his offense was assisted
Playoffs that year? 70.8% of his offense was assisted...
70% of his offense eh??? 70% ... was assisted... and I'm sure 99% of those assists were from Nash...
Yeah I think we're done here now.....
The only 'myth' is the one that floats around that tries to assume Nash DIDN'T make everything happen for Stoudemire.
