They said it because they were the first ones to offer him a deal and offered him the most $. Just because they were first doesn't mean they had a shot.

He went to PHX management and asked for them to work out a deal with LA. They were classy enough to oblige. End of story. I don't see what the big deal is.

The Suns FO originally didn't want to do the trade with Lakers. Fortunately for the Lakers, they reconsidered after Steve made the request (Kobe recruiting). It was a favor to Nash for his services, I guess.

Come on, the Raptors did have a shot at Nash and you'd be delusional to say that weren't the leading candidates to get Nash at one point.

And what's your excuse for Nash just last week saying he would could never see himself joining the Lakers and now he's running to get his purple and gold uniform. I find it hard to believe one call from Kobe could make him do a complete 180 on his beliefs and beg the Suns management to trade him there.

I'm not really upset that Nash chose to go the Lakers what pisses me off is him saying just last week how he wouldn't feel comfortable with the Lakers, could never see himself as a Laker, he wants to beat the Lakers not join them, he'll always consider them his rivals, but now he requests that the Suns trade him there.

Re: NBA Offseason Thread 2012

lulz, I knew who you meant. Just giving you a hard time.

Why is anyone giving Nash a free pass for this? He is going against something he said literally A WEEK AGO.

I understand the Lakers fans loving this gut the guy lost a lot of respect from me.

It's not like he said I will never ever sign with the LA Lakers. His exact words were that it would be hard to put the jersey on but then went on to say how much respect he has for the organization. Clearly Kobe said something to him that changed his mind. And being 1 hour away from the kids probably weighed in too.

You posted it yourself, the Suns didnt think he would actually be an option to be included. And the Knicks would be retarded to do that themselves, I don't believe for a second he was actually a possibility.

Colangelo already said Fields was on their radar, with or without Nash. The retard contract was his doing. And even if he wasn't on the radar, that wasn't Nash's fault at all.

Re: NBA Offseason Thread 2012

Kobe probably let Nash get in on the white girls to change his mind and that's surprising because Kobe never sets up his teammates and always looks to score.

Re: NBA Offseason Thread 2012

I don't get how it would be "hard to put on a Laker jersey and play for them, he considers them his rivals, wants to beat them instead of join them, is old-school", is pretty much saying he doesn't want to be a Laker but yet he requests a trade to them. Not buying the thing about him being an hour away from his kids, sure it's a benefit for Steve for playing with the Lakers but I doubt it was that big of a deal in his decision. Because like I said if that was the case he would've never considered any other team besides the Lakers.
