Funny even when you're using "in fairness" we all agree he's a troll......

oddly enough so does MDA....

maybe that has something to do with Nash being MDAs system rather than MDA actually having a competent system.

Nash should've orchestrated the O more.

As I alluded to in WMC, thought Kobe came out with his individual game mentality from the get go.

We needed him for sure, but he was really forcing it (and making) but that makes guys less engaged in the game, esp. on D.

No. Nash DID orchestrate the O. The recipients, Pau and D12 went 3-18.

What Nash did wrong was not shoot more.

He needs to look for his shot more. I think with all the offensive options the team's got, he's even more open on pull-ups and such than he used to be in Phoenix, where he showcased a very marked "pass first" mentality. I love that about him, but if he's one of the most effective options we've got and he's got great looks, he should take them and make the D adjust. That's what the game is all about, exploit your opportunities, make the opponent adjust, then counter that. Nash becomes more agressive with his scoring, then all of the sudden we get Dwight a lob, and Kobe a cut to the basket, or Gasol a very open J..

want to see him play with jamison. i really hope dantoni plays jamison against the clips. i think when odom is on the floor jamison should be too to guard him. clips dont really run anything for odom so i think jamison on him would be good and on O jamison i think can do well against odom.

He plays perfect every single night, all we can do is ask him to shoot more, and not because he is so passive, because our team NEEDS it playing like garbage every other night.

This. I'm starting to get the feeling that Mike D'Antoni would be a gas station attendant in Omaha without Steve Nash...

Yes, the bigs sucked. Not talking about that.

Talking about Nash bringing it up trying to run a set. Philly's defense cuts off our options and he gets it to Kobe on the wing with like 10-15 seconds left on the clock. Kobe takes impossible shot. Shot goes in. Teammates feel crappier about selves. No energy. No D.

^^^

Problem is, what Nash does really really well....the PnR just isn't working. Pau is too slow, weak and passive. D12 can't shoot, so teams cheat on the roll.

That's what happened last night. Nash TRIED. It didn't work. The old saying about going to a dry well applies here.

What Nash should have done was realize this sooner and get his own. If Nash was more aggressive getting his own, we win this game.

If you want to blame someone, blame the FO for hiring Antoni. Personnel doesn't match system. Simple as that. The only ones comfortable in this system is Nash and Kobe.

Nash is fine. He still runs the O like a Hall of Fame PG. He doesn't need to shoot more... last night was a fluke night, we won't be shooting at 15% from 3's for a while again.

Fair enough. But the one thing I don't like is him handing the ball over the instant Kobe calls for it. I loved Fisher because he would always try to initiate the offense & keep the ball moving.

Nash >>>> Fisher and he's playing the "subordinate" role to Kobe IMO. I would love to see him use his knowledge of bball to make plays instead of dishing to Kobe when our PnR's aren't working.

3-4 FG tonight

3-4 3 pt FG

Unacceptable really, the reason we were supposed to be so dangerous in crunch time was because we had both these guys that were super clutch. He spends way too much time trying to get Kobe the ball instead of looking for his own.

It seems like a lot of you had some unrealistic expectations if you're upset with Nash for not looking more for his own shot offensively. He averaged 12 ppg last year with Gortat as his second best player. Why would anyone expect him to be MORE aggressive offensively now?

He's doing fine.
