Re: NBA Offseason Thread 2012

Steve Nash is my least favourite player in the NBA. Lakers? Fuck off. I would have settled for pretty much any other team.

Re: NBA Offseason Thread 2012

Well seeing as the Raps offered what, like 10 mil more then the Lakers, and 6 mil then what the Knicks were offering, I'd imagine a big reason of him not accepting that was a) kids and b) contender. And there was a blurb i read earlier saying that his ex and the kids would have moved to NY because they lived there when they were younger, so the Knicks clearly had a reason to be in the convo. But if Kobe talks to you personally and you have a choice between contending with him, keeping your kids where they're at and only being an hour away OR uprooting them to NY with you and dealing with the circus that is Melo and the Knicks, you'd be a fool not to go to LA.

Re: NBA Offseason Thread 2012

I don't see the problem people have with Nash coming to LA. He put his family first, nothing wrong with that. At the same time, he's on a definite contender. He made a good decision not just for himself, but for his kids as well. #biasLakerfan


And lol @ people freaking out about this. Let's not pretend like Nash ISN'T 38 yrs old and that he ISN'T a terrible defender. OKC and Heat are still clearly better.

Re: NBA Offseason Thread 2012

If he cared that much about being close to his kids in Phoenix then why did he even consider the Knicks or Raptors? It should've been Lakers from the get-go then.

And HeatWave I said the exact same thing about the Bobcats

The Lakers didnt get into the mix and show interest until last night/early this morning

Re: NBA Offseason Thread 2012

Bullshit. The Lakers have been showing interest since the season ended. The Knicks & Raptors were the early frontrunners which is why you didn't hear much about the Lakers in the beginning.

Re: NBA Offseason Thread 2012

Nash specifically said he would never want to join the Lakers. That was a WEEK AGO. It's not like he can get a pass for changing him mind over time on that one. So much hate. The fact that he's being traded for late picks is a joke too. Teams are giving competitive offers for him as well as more money and he settles for less money on a team he never wanted to play for.

Re: NBA Offseason Thread 2012

I would take Iman Shumpert in a heartbeat over a #28 pick in a draft.

Re: NBA Offseason Thread 2012

Lakers didn't get into the mix because Nash publicly took them out of the mix...No way Jerry Colangelo signs Fields if Nash told him from the jump he wants to stay close to his kids or play for a contender...No way Knicks contemplate giving up Shumpert just to see Phoenix is willing to take mediocre draft picks...This whole thing screams confusion & contradiction lol
