What he has said goes beyond what he said last week and yes, he's pretty much said the he would never want to play for LA.

This is Nash's official statement.
Quote:
For the last 8 seasons I've been blessed to play for a team and a city that has embraced me and that I have come to call home. This is a tough business and the only thing constant in life is change.

After talking with (owner) Robert (Sarver) and (president of basketball operations) Lon (Babby) we've agreed that it's time for both of us to move in new directions. I approached them and asked if they would be willing to do a sign and trade deal with L.A. because it is very important to me to stay near my children and family.

They were very apprehensive and didn't want to do it. Fortunately for me, they reconsidered. They saw that they were able to get assets for their team that will make them better, assets they would not have otherwise had and it made sense for them to do a deal that helps their team get better.

I couldn't be more grateful to the organization and Robert in particular. I know how hard this was for him and that fact that he was able to help me and my family in this way ... it means a lot and says a lot about his character. I will never forget this gesture. Above and beyond.

The Phoenix Suns are an amazing organization and fans should be excited about their future. I hope the Suns win a championship some day soon for all the amazing fans and wonderful people in the organization.
LOL at "They saw that they were able to get assets for their team that will make them better"

No, I don't think they really did have a shot. This is coming from a Raptors fan too. Sure, we made our pitch, he listened to us. We offered him the most cash. That's all we can really offer him though. Everyone in Toronto though has this idea that Nash, KID CANADA, should want to come finish his career at home (when in actuality, the guy is from Victoria BC, no where near Toronto..) The benefit of him signing here is all for Canada. If you look and focus on the benefits for HIM, Toronto is last on the list of teams interested like LA, NY, DAL, etc. He had no reason to come here except money, and I dont think that was ever priority number one for him.

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.
For me, it would be hard to put on a Lakers jersey. That's just the way it is," Nash said. "You play against them so many times in the playoffs, and I just use them as an example, and I have the utmost respect for them and their organization.

"I kind of have that tendency (to try to beat the best teams), so it is strange, but as a free agent you're free to go where you want, so I'd have to consider everything regardless of the past or the future."

--------------------------

That's the full quote. He just plainly said it'd be hard to play with them, but he respects the org and would have to consider it. Clearly he considered it. And like I've said, I dont think he considered the Raps and he considered NYC because the ex and kids would have moved to the NY area. So that leaves him with moving kids cross country to NY, or playing on a better team, closer to home and allowing them to stay where they are. I dont think its that hard to get.

If he didn't consider the Raptors, why would he meet with them?

Him saying he has respect for the organization is irrelevant, majority of NBA players respect the Lakers organization. I never said he wouldn't consider the Lakers but why talk about how it would be hard to play with them and how you would rather beat them instead of join them just to turn around and request a trade to them?

As far as his kids go, once again I believe that's a cop out. Because if he cared that damn much about being close to his kids as well as being on a contending team he would've listened to no team other than the Lakers, considered no team other than the Lakers and met with no team other than the Lakers.

@HeatWave: Is marijuana legal in Arizona? Oh and Landry Fields makes more than him, Super Cool Beas needs to step his game up

I'm not going to fault Steve Nash at all for this. At his age and you want a championship, why on earth would you go to Toronto or New York?
