I wonder how Suns fans feel about the Nash trade?
I'm in shock. IMO this was worst case scenario. I now have to actively root against Nash, his entire legacy is tainted in my eyes. Disgusted.
F this, F the NBA, F sarver, F Babby...
With the 28th pick in the 2013 NBA draft, the Phoenix Suns select (insert talentless European finess player with the suffix -ovic) . Oh the excitement... I want Nash to win a title but it's going to be awfully hard to see him celebrate with rapist Kobe and douchebag Bynum.
I don't know. Depending upon what they do with the rest of the team they are going to be just incredible offensively. I would have given my left nut to see Steve Nash/Gasol running the pick and roll together here. Steve Nash is going to get so many open shots on that team. If they can find a way to get player Howard now forget about it. They will easily be the favorites to win the next two championships. Without him I would still put them up there with OKC and Miami.
I hope Nash never wins another game in his life.
this is so screwed up
Yep, just sick to see Kobe and the rest of those clowns get another ring or 2. Hill will go there next.
Simon says, championship.
Okay, i get all the good things about this trade. Yes, it's draft picks, yes, we are building for the future....
But it's the FRAKKING Lakers.
I'm all for us getting the benefits of trades, but sometimes it's not worth it when it means you have to watch Nash play for someone like the Lakers, right alongside Kobe.
Can you imagine if this were the Spurs? It's almost the same thing for me.
Logic be damned, I hate this trade.
Gutted. I'd prefer for Nash to retire, join the Heat or play hockey compared with this.
I won't be able to stomach him in a Lakers jersey.
I haven't even read what the Suns get in return, but this feels like selling the soul to the devil.
This is the lowest point in Suns history. Without question. Sarver is a movie villain at this point. I think he's been a double agent for the Lakers all along. I wish nothing but ill on him. He is a monster.
%$#@ I'm gonna be sick.
People think they are sick now? Just wait till Hill signs (inevitable) and they trade Bynum for Howard. We are going to get Heat/Lakers in the Finals.
Well it looks like Nash is going to put off his fishing trip next year until June.
...You're trying to tell me, for whom the Lakers have represented nothing shy of pure evil since 1979, to be happy about my favorite player in history putting on that purple and gold uniform and hugging a trophy, doused in champagne?...
I feel physically sick...
This just sucks all around. It's embarrassing that the best player in franchise history has to go to the Lakers to win a championship. And I predict that they will win it.
I'd like for Nash to have a special clause in his contract, allowing him to sit out regular season games against Phoenix.
You cant trade him to the Lakers... there has to be some perspective here. Its like your girlfriend of 5 years leaving you for the guy who she met while he was kicking your teeth in.
I'm rather shocked at myself... I've been anti-Lakers since they were in Minneapolis, but I think I'll root for them to win the title during Nash's time there. Then I hope that we hit the jackpot with those 4 lousy draft picks and stomp the holy crap out of them for a decade.
Id rather have lost him for nothing than see him become an f-ing Laker.
It sucks to see Steve go, but anytime you can have your holiday ruined by Lakers fans blowing up your phone and laughing at your team, it makes everything okay.
Does it mean D. Howard is going to Lakers?
I'd say the chances of that happening have greatly improved. The Suns might have just played a big part in building the next Lakers dynasty.
The Best I can wish for is Kobe goes down with an injury and the Lakers miss the playoffs, while Nash still does well. I would also like to see the Lakers not be able to get Howard that way they don't have any good players once, Kobe and Nash end their careers.
If you're happy about this deal, you're not a long-time Suns fan. You don't even know what it means to be a long-time Suns fan.
The fact that the picks won't amount to anything (which I promise, they won't) is not even factored into my hate.
If you're even looking at the logic of the deal, you not only don't understand the Suns, you don't understand sports.
Thanks for your input. Now go F yourself
We just handed the LA Lakers a great shot at another championship or two. They should have had to sacrifice more for it. I feel like the Memphis grizzlies right now.
Go to hell Robert Sarver. I'm done with this franchise. Fan since the early 90s
I am a Phoenix Suns fan first and foremost. The fact the we are starting to rebuild and people are crying like Charlie Sheen after hes been sold baby powder.
Calm down people, step away from the ledge and renew your prescriptions.
