Nash still upset over Gasol-to-Lakers trade

    I remember a while back Nash spoke out on the “unfair” Pau Gasol trade. He still seems to think the Suns won’t be able to compete with the Lakers since they got Pau.

    Yahoo: “It’s tough to say you’re a contender when you look at the Lakers,” Nash said. “The Gasol thing changed everything. Any team in the playoffs that was given Pau Gasol and didn’t really have to give up anything, that would have a big impact on your team. I think anyone else [with Gasol] would be sitting in the position the Lakers are in now, too.

      nash, are you kidding me? we gave up the black kwamba kwame brown. enough said!

    • Jason

      I’m tired of the whining Nash, anyone could have gotten Gasol, but you all stink, and you don’t have Kobe. If you were a great team Kobe and Gasol would be with you. And can’t Stevo sign a one year deal with the Lakers if he wanted to win. Lakers Rule!!!!!!!!!!1

      You know Nash, That’s karma bro.
      You, D’Antoni, Amare and that idiot Raja Bell disrespect the Lakers and PJ during those playoff runs few years back.

      So now this is what you get.
      •you will never win a ring
      •fat Shaq did not save your @ss
      •Phoenix Suns is over, time to rebuild.
      •none of the guys mentioned above will ever win a ring together again.

      And here are the Lakers, couple of years later we go to a final and the following year we are the champions. And just to make you crazy, we have a young and talented team that will contend for years to come, meanwhile the only thing you have going on is to carry an Olympic torch in Vancouver. Have fun with that. lol

      • touchingmyself

        Exactly my sentiments! I love it that the Suns have now been eclipsed the aftermath of the Big Moon (Snaq)! D’Antoni is in an abysmal team that is now the Knicks! Raja is over on the pussycats where he ain’t winnin $h!t! Where’s all the big talk now biatches? Fcuk you guys, even Amare was trying to jump over to the Lakers! But that dumbass didn’t realize just because he tweets some bull$h!t, doesn’t mean that it’ll happen!

        Lakers 4 PEAT baby!

    • LakersFirst

      If Nash hadn’t signed an extension with the Suns, he could have easily signed with the Lakers next year, for the vets minimum of course.

      Fisher, in the last season of his contract, will probably retire after this season, so Nash, the starting guard job on the Lakers could have been yours. But NOOOOOO, Nash wanted to stay in the hellish desert that is Phoenix and play with that loser club.

    • steveo

      dont cry nash..because u guys had talent.u traded away loul deng,nate robinson,joe johnson,sergio fernadez,so dont be crying cuz your owner was too cheap.and u guys did bad tradex..shaq..lol

      Hmmm…There’s a reason why teams like the Lakers can get talents like Gasol. They’re winners on the court as well as in the front office. And then, there’s the Suns. Instead of worrying about what players other teams got, you should’ve worried about your lack of defense, Nash. Who knows maybe that would’ve helped your Suns get a title? Well, that’s a BIG maybe.

      Nash just wants to be a Laker.

      Dis guy is an idiot cuz he couldn’t he have got out of his contract dis offseason or next but chose to sign an extension…so we all can see tht he cares more about th3 money den rings..Oh yea N he is still focused on Shaq “stealing” his idea for Shaq Vs.

    • Lakers 24 7

      Nash is still a sore f*ckin’ loser. The Suns had the best line up in the league a few years back, and couldn’t do sh!t. Amare, Nash, Marion, Bell…not to mention Barbosa off the bench. Nash had his chance and opportunity and he blew it, now he needs to shut the f*ck up and let the big boys play.

      And what is all this talk about “We gave up nothing for Gasol”? We gave up Caron Butler for Kwame and Kwame for Gasol, that alone should be enough. Any team that had or has Kwame as a starter deserves a break. Leave it the f*ck alone.

    • dmills

      Laugh all you want while we polish our rings!

    • dmills

      Nash had an all star team. He at one time ran the point for a team with Amare, Matrix, Joe Johnson, Barbosa, pre fat burger Q Richardson, Eddie House, with Dantoni as coach. The hell he talking?!

    • lakers#1

      [b]in 2007-2008 The Lakers were the top team in the west (that time Bynum was on the rise) before we got Gasol. The Lakers had won two times against Suns before Gasol. So the Lakers were still the same best team. When Bynum went down, the Lakers were able got Gasol to take over Bynum’s place. so Its still same team. When Bynum comes back from injury, he just makes the Lakers more stronger and deeper team. thats all. Nash dont understand that.[/b]

    • lakers#1

      Nash is jealous

    • http://www.whoisepik.com Mr.E

      payback for the smush years biotch!

    • sedd

      pffff… If suns got Gasol, they would be swept by the spurs in 09 western conference final or by the nuggets in 09 because of their softness

    • pauu

      Nobody gave a crap about Gasol until he got traded. I dotn ever remember hearing Gasol trade rumors or people around the league talking about him beign one of the elite power forwards/centers.

      But, once he gets traded to Kobe’s team, everyone realized how much better Kobe would make him in that offense. You’ve gotta admit, his talent really shines brighter in LA than it would have on another team

      • Dan Andreas

        That’s very true! Good comment! Hopefully someone tells Nash this so he can shut his fat yap. Kobe FINALLY has a team around him and we get to the Finals and win a championship. What’d Nash do again? Individual awards? And people used to say Nash (not Kobe) made his teammates better, my a$$…

      • az66

        Pau was just as good in Memphis as he is now, he just played for a crap team so no one noticed. His numbers were actually better. He’s smart enough to know he doesn’t have to put up the same numbers now that he’s on a legitimate team. If anything, he makes Kobe better than the other way around.

    • PTG23

      STOP CRYING NASH!!! SOUND LIKE A LITTLE KID.

    • Anthony

      It’s not like the Grizzlies were going anywhere with Gasol at the helm. They had to rebuild for the future and the trade allowed them to do so. Pau absolutely changed the complextion of not only the western conference but the whole NBA when he joined with the likes of Kobe and LO. Nash and Co. will be lucky to make the playoffs next year.

        Couldn’t have said it better myself. Good point Anthony.

      • alex

        Yeah, they got Zach Randolph a great improvement…

    • Bshawk

      And I’m still upset that I dropped an ice cream cone when I was five. Whaaa!

    • skew

      nash is a wining loser and he gets trampled during the playoffs cause he cant stop anyone. learn how to play some defense first then talk smack about the lakers.

    • Short Dog

      Get used to it Nash. Payback’s a biitch. Revenge is so sweet! That’s what you get when you hate on the lakers. Remember when Kobe jumped over you and dunked on your ass.

    • az66

      I’ve been a laker fan since I was seven years old in 1980 and always will be, but I swear, other Laker fans, especially ones on message boards, are pretty much scum. There’s no intelligent analysis of anything, just “suck my d*ck” “you’re a homo (which is a strange insult when you’re offering to let another man suck your d*ck)”, “f- you biotch” etc. You all sound like 14 year old wannabe hood rats. Yeah, Nash may come off as a whiner about the situation, but his comments aren’t nearly as lowlife as the dirtbag idiocy that gets spit out in response. You know the rest of the country doesn’t hate us JUST because we have a better team. It’s also because 90% of our fans are morons.
