The initial signing of Steve Nash came off of a season he averaged 15/10 shooting 50/40/90 and missed only 4 games. At the time he was quite obviously still in the top tier of PGs in the league. Then he broke his leg the 2nd game of the season and was not ever the same since. He had a nice stretch until injuring his hamstring/back again.
At no point were any of us wrong who claimed that when we signed Nash he was a top 25 PG still. You were wrong.
Telling history to fit your tale: priceless.
i didn't say any names but are you suggesting you were one of many killing me when i said nash isn't a good enough player to be a starter on this team even when healthy?
If you made that suggestion at the start of the season, then yes probably. If you made that suggestion sometime in the last month, then no probably not.
i made that opinion after he came back from his first injury and sucked & couldn't even deal with ball pressure causing the overload on kobe which he & MDA are responsible for ( 2 phx suns has beens). it wasn't hindsight it was in the moment i said he wasn't gonna deliver. one thing i will admit i am wrong on was thinking we should explore trading D12 i was wrong about that because he has gotten healthier and shown he is the future. Nash on the other hand i was right months ago the guy is shot. i admit when i am wrong others should too.He has dealt with injuries off and on this year. The first and worst was freak. Where in the hell does that not figure into your performance evaluation?? Younger players don't get injured too? Stephen Curry, Rajon Rondo and pick one or two more young guards hurt this year, saying hello. Guess they suck too. You give the impression of someone more happy to be right in your head than whether or not it impacts the team in negative way. Props!
Yes i like being right like 99.9% of all human beings. the point is when your old you can't recover as fast and the odds of you getting injured again are greater. Look at nash he is now hobbled with something completely different than his early season injuries. Steph curry & rajon rondo don't play for the Lakers so who cares but to bust your point steph is back already and playing at a high high level. Nash is so old we don't even know the origin of his current injuries he is just hurting from and old man hamstring and hip i believe.
