I think Steve Nash is obviously on the decline. But the last couple of years before this, he was one of the best point guards in the game. He was really good at being clutch and hitting the tough shot when needed. He still is a great passer and a decent scorer. The thing he can't do is play a lick of defense. In fact, it is so easy to score on him that you don't even have to try very hard. But that doesn't hide the fact that he still is a very nice player. Overall, he is talented. Thank you.
Steve Nash is one of the point guards on the Phoenix Suns NBA basketball team. He leads the NBA with assists and also he used to be on the Dallas Mavericks team until Mark Cuban decided to trade Steve Nash to his old team Phoenix Suns. There Nash began his juorney to become the NBA's MVP twice in a row! Nash's career has began to sky rocket after his trade. Nash alo wears the number 13 on his team and is married with twin daughters. Steve likes to give his teammates help if they want it like Leandro Barbosa who is new to the NBA experience. He can do layups, three throw, free throws, and is the team's playmaker. Nash is actually over 90% in free throws this year and is the NBA's best free throw shooters in the playoffs 2006. Steve Nash is a very talented ball player.
Before the 04-05 season started, polls sprang up who would make the biggest impact on their new team; Steve Nash, Steve Francis, Tracy McGrady, or Shaquille O'neal? Because of his impressive resume, Shaq easily won them all, but I didn't have a doubt in my mind that it would be Steve Nash. And by the end of the season, Steve Nash was awarded the MVP trophy, leading the Phoenix Suns to a league best 62 wins. Not only did he surprise everyone, and stengthen the presence of basketball in Canada already molded by Vince Carter, unlike all the other superstars, Steve Nash has turned some players into all stars. Joe Johnson was being paid the league minimum, but thanks to Nash, his hidden potential was discovered, and instantly become a rising young star. Amare Stoudamire, who was already an all star, only benefitted more from the Canadian basketball player. In the 05 playoffs, they swept the Memphis Grizzlies, defeated the Mavericks in six games, but fell to the defensive minded Spurs in five.
As the next season started, things were looking even better for the Suns, for they got defensive stopper Raja Bell, along with Kurt Thomas, their inside presence. However, Joe Johnson was gone, Quientin Richardson was used traded away, and Amare Stoudamire beared heavy injuries. Despite these heavy losses, thanks to Steve Nash, the Phoenix Suns won over 50 games during their campaign, where new stars rose in Boris Diaw, Lenadro Barbosa, and even Tim Thomas, who finally had the motivation to play basketball again. And who do we thank for this? Steve Nash of course. His flawless decision making skills, his clutch plays, and leadership, can turn almost any player into decent production. He literally wills his way to victories. He can make anyone play his style, and he can make anyone look good or even better. Though his great playmaking skills overshadow another great trait of his; his ability to score. Not a lot of people know it, but Steve Nash is one of the best scorers in the league, and if the need arises, he'll take over games himself while balancing out with sharing the ball.
However, while he did win two MVP awards in a Suns uniform, and gained most of his recognition in Phoenix, you simply can't forget what he did with the Dallas Mavericks. The Mavericks, for several seasons, were the top scoring team in the league, and while they were a lackluster defensive team, their offensive prowess, led by powerhouse units Steve Nash, Dirk Nowitzki, and Michael Finley, came close in several series against the elite teams in the West at the time, most notably the Lakers. Steve Nash isn't a defensive type of player; in fact, he's a lot more known for his lack of defensive presence than most players for their top notch defensive skills, but he still managers to win games with offense alone. The 06 Phoenix Suns team played probably their best defense with Nash on the team against the Lakers, in which they were down 3-1 in the series, but recuperated by elite play from Boris Diaw, Shawn Marion, Steve Nash, Tim Thomas, and Raja Bell. When it's all said and done, you can't deny that Steve Nash is one of the best Point Guards to ever play the NBA. When you can make use of garbage and take them deep into the playoffs, then you know you're going to be in talks with the greats.
Steve Nash is the definition of all around player. He scores, passes, rebounds and plays tough D. He's also a great leader. All of these qualities make up a future hall of famer. Oh yeah, he's won 2 straight MVP awards.
Steve Nash is one of the best players ever in the NBA. Sure, MJ and the other future (and present) hall of famers are a bit better but he is probably as valuable to a team as some of them. Before he came to the Suns they had the worst record in the league. After he came, they had the best. Coincidence? I think not. People still doubted him because he had Amare Stoutimire and Shawn Marion as scoring threats which made everything easier on him but this year he carried the undersized team to the confrence finals. Think of what they could have done with everbody healthy. He's not just a sharpshooter either. Steve does everthing. His leadership has helped a young team reach it's full potential and he's got personal recognition too. Two MVPs in a row. I think he'll make it three.
Steve Nash is a great ingredient for the NBA, and especially for the Phoenix Suns. He is a great addition and is a very fast and popular player. When it comes to playing, Steve Nash does his best to help the Phoenix Suns win, or with any other team he's been with. But of course, he is always great with the rest of the team.
