Nash will go where he wants to go. Toronto has a good shot I'd say.
Just saying it would be a shame to see him waste the last few years of his career in Toronto where nobody will give a fuck about him.

Yea but for different reasons. Any team can make them in the East because there are only 5 or 6 teams that are worth a damn. In the West there are a bunch of good teams fighting for the last two spots.

Re: NBA Offseason Thread 2012

It's a myth that the West is still so much better than the East.

The West & East 1-8 are pretty even.

The dropoff in the conferences is from 9-15.

And Dolph'sZiggler maybe you won't, but I will give a fuck about Nash in Toronto because they will be probably the most entertaining team in the league by far.

Yea man I totally forgot how big Toronto sports are in the media and how much coverage they get and how many games they get on national tv! my bad. And before you try and tell me how that would change with Nash, please take a look at your sig. The Blue Jays have one of the more marketable players in baseball and still nobody cares about them, so Nash as a Raptor wouldn't change shit.

So you think Nash going to Toronto would suddenly mean everyone in the media would be talking Raptors basketball and they would get a ton of games on national tv? I sure don't.

Re: NBA Offseason Thread 2012

It's ignorant to say that the Raptors wouldn't get national attention even if they were good.

Were you alive during the Carter days?

Nash goes to Toronto and they become a playoff team hell fucking yes they would start getting attention and national TV games. As for everyone in the media, the media really only pays a lot of attention to and talks a lot about 4-5 teams: OKC, Miami, Lakers, Knicks, and I guess you can add the Bulls. So you can't really use the media as an example.

What are we calling 'good'? Like 7 or 8 seed in the East good? They won't get shit for attention. And Vince was a special case, he was the human highlight reel. People eat that shit up, it's why Blake griffin is on the runaway hype train. Comparing him to an end of his career Nash is pointless.

Re: NBA Offseason Thread 2012

The Raptors have a loyal local fan base and they deserve to have good players just like every other fan base that are dedicated to their team. Things are completely indicative on which games networks decide to show in the United States. The Raptors are broadcasted nationally in Canada. Every game. The Blue Jays are broadcasted nationally in Canada. Every game. Nash signing in Toronto would be HUGE in Canada. Bautista is HUGE in Canada. No one here cares what people in Omaha, Nebraska think of the Toronto Raptors as we are fully capable of supporting the team nationally. You sound like a typical ignorant American.

The Raptors with Nash would be better than a 7-8 seed at least IMO.

The Raptors have one of the best fanbases in the NBA, saying they don't deserve a player like Nash is idiotic.

And I'll tell you one thing, the Raptors with Nash would get a hell of a lot more attention than the Suns did these past 2 years.
