The progress will be how much Nash improves the young players in the time he's here FOR THE FUTURE. His contributions will go on past his time on the floor. I see this as a no lose situation. They don't need anymore lottery picks. They drafted the franchise player last year and added a solid shooter this year that take a bit of pressure of Derozan from shooting all the time and hopefully allows him to be more aggressive. Having Nash will allow for Derozan to only play within his strengths even more.

Re: NBA Offseason Thread 2012

The East is horrible, the only team that shouldn't be in playoff contention in the West next year are NOLA and Phoenix. Portland, Minnesota, Utah, GSW, Sacramento, Houston, Denver should all be in the thick of it for the last spots after LAL, LAC, Dallas, SAS, OKC, and Memphis.

Re: NBA Offseason Thread 2012

Ok so the Lamar Odom trade is done, but it's now a 4-team deal with the Rockets being added, so this is the official deal:
Clippers get Lamar Odom
Jazz get Mo Williams & rights to Shan Foster
Rockets get rights to Furkan Aldemir
Mavs get rights of Tadija Dragevic and cash considerations from Houston

Re: NBA Offseason Thread 2012

KG'S BACK!!!!!

He's agreed to a three year, 34 mil deal and he'll probably retire after the first year.

The Raptors are also expected to offer Steve Nash a contract paying him at least 12 million a year annually.

Re: NBA Offseason Thread 2012

Arguably the best defensive player in the NBA has decided to return to our team?

Re: NBA Offseason Thread 2012

He's not? Oh really? Anchored the Celtics to the #1 defense.

And before you say, "Oh noes the Celtics would be good on defense without KG", the Celtics are awful on defense without KG.

It's funny how people are quick to praise Tyson Chandler & Dwight Howard for anchoring their teams to good defensive rankings but KG doesn't get the same treatment.

Enjoy mediocrity?

Sorry I'd much rather have Rondo, KG, Pierce, Bradley, Green, Sullinger, Mayo and Steamer than have a 35 year old Kobe chucking 30 shots a game, a dumb ass center shooting three pointers, a deranged mediocre SF, one of the worst benches in the NBA, and a soft underachieving European PF. Oh and did I mention one of the worst coaches in the NBA?

2 years would of been better. He already said how much it hurts to physically play. Oh well. It will make it harder to rebuild it they want to try.
