    Think it would be a huge mistake for Nash to go to Miami. Lebron James leaves no room on that team for anyone with his ego. He and Nash would constantly be at each other. Although Nash is a far superior player to Lebron James, you would only see a power struggle ensue. Nash would be better off with the Thunder. A young aggressive team that needs a seasoned leader to take them over the top. If Nash wants a ring, the Thunder should be his choice. His talents would be wasted in Miami.

  2. Interesting take on Nash heading to OKC. On one hand, I like Nash being a veteran leader and “teaching” Westbrook how to run an offense, but I don’t see them offering him a three-year deal or having the kind of money he will command.

    OKC has several free agents they could let go and possibly acquire the money necessary to temp Steve. The main consideration form Steve Nash on this option, would be an chance to acquire a championship ring. If I understand correctly, he is leaving the Suns because they would not give him support. He would have plenty of support in OKC as Fisher got. He would have a team to play with for a change.

    No doubt. I was just thinking about a choice he may consider. And, who knows what is going on behind the scenes. I just think it would be a good match and it would benefit both the Thunder and Steve Nash. But, if you could easily stack the team members, where would the competition be?
