Steve Nash: ‘I prefer to stay in Phoenix’
As a veteran, Nash said an NBA championship ring was still a strong lure for him, but he said he would not change teams to achieve that goal.
"Every player wants the ring. We were very close to it many times. Changing teams may be a way. But I don’t think I will join another team; I prefer to stay in Phoenix. Hopefully, we can go further next season," said Nash.
HoopsVibe’s Very Quick Call: Steve, hope is not a strategy for you or your Phoenix Suns.
While visiting China on behalf of his sponsors, Nash told the assembled media his preference was to close his eyes, cross his fingers, and ’hope’ his Phoenix Suns achieve better results.
Lets be clear: what else can Nash do?
He’s too classy to publicly call out Robert Sarver, the Suns’ thrifty owner who refuses to spend on the necessary talent to contend, let alone win a championship.
He’s too classy to publicly call out GM Lon Babby, who first acquired Hedo Turkoglu and then sent the Turkish swing to Orlando for another underachiever in Vince Carter.
And he’s too classy to publicly call out his teammates, who seem a little too interested in taking shots at each other via the media.
Right now, Nash can only grin and bear the Suns. Of course, he can hope. Sadly, this is what the future Hall of Fame point guard has been reduced to.
