Probably.

I mean they have to think about what's out there and available. I know they want to save the money on a team that's not likely to do well anyway but... you still need to field a team and there's really not enough out there in our price range to make a full team...

If he's gone we'll be seeing a lot of some scrub guys out there.

Yeah, but since Dwight chose Houston he'll run what they ask him to run - whether it be pick and rolls, whatever.... until he's unhappy again. Then he'll sulk up and down the court and demand the offense be run through him in the low post. And when they don't do everything he wants, he'll put out vague messages in interviews about how they need to work more on their chemistry, while sources close to Howard tell the media he's not comfortable with the system. The same song and dance that has gone on with him the past 3 seasons now. He's a nice enough guy, but nice guys can be just as cancerous as those with terrible attitudes.

Love how Nash put that out there. It was obvious to everyone that the pick and roll was what would work here, and yet, Howard really didn't want to do it. Don't understand it. His way or no way.

I agree with everything you said. He'll try harder in Houston because it's the place he chose. Finally.

But he'll never change who he is: a whiny child.

Thanks for that Doc, I didn't want to do the work of separating each quote on my phone, and it was working at first as all one quote until I added one of those quotes in there that must have messed it up, just couldn't figure out which one.

They never did mesh. I still see their argument on the court during one particular game where Howard was pointing up while Nash was telling the latter to hold his hands out ready for a catch.

Not that they really had much time to mesh given all the injuries. It would have taken a full season realistically. This season would have been where they really clicked, if they were going to. But I don't know that Howard really ever had his heart in it with this team. Body language says a lot and his body language told more than his play or his interviews combined.

I know not many people are big on Odom, and neither am I right now to be honest. But if Odom could get back in shape it would be really fun to see him play with Nash... even at this stage of his career. I just don't know if he has anything left, or if Nash can stay healthy. But those two passers would be pretty entertaining (on the offensive side at least).

LOL Coward was unwilling to play pick n roll. Good lord what a primadona.

So glad now that he's gone. To put it into perspective, Lebron, Wade, Bosh...KG, PP and Allen...ALL changed their games for the benefit of the team.

I think it's safe to say that Coward IS the biggest crybaby primadona in the entire league.

The saddest part of it all, well, for Dwight & the Rockets anyway.. Is that he went to the team that sold him the most on being able to win with him just being him.. Just show up & be Dwight Howard & we can win championships.. Perfect recipe to never win anything. The comment by Kobe about how Dwight should be a better version of Tyson Chandler & all of his other comments about adjustments Dwight needed to make were right on track. He needs to focus on defense & rebounding, & forget about touches if he ever wants to win a championship..

But obviously that isn't what he wanted to hear.. He wanted to hear that he's good enough to be the man & lead a team to a title right now, & that's exactly what Houston sold him on.. Better them than us.

I don't know how long they will keep asking our players about Dwight, but I like the answer anyway.

I still believe in Nash, he was injured last season & was never healthy. With the Coward gone, now we can play our game not worrying about giving him his touches so he doesn't cry. I remember our game vs the Brooklyn Nets our offense ran really smooth & we weren't as deep as we were this year.

That Brooklyn game was one of Nash's best games all season. If we can get anything close to that Nash, our offense we'll run so efficiently. Whoever our starting SG/SF is during the season, (assuming Kobe can't start) the key is providing the spacing for Nash to operate, so they must hit their open shots. Either PF/Center set the screen to run Pick & Roll and shooters spread out; that's when Steve's at his best, IMO.

I agree with both of you. I'm disappointed that he couldn't contribute more but at least he tried to go out there and gut it out. That's something you can't say about you know who.

I don't think his numbers are an accurate reflection of the season he had.. The numbers didn't fall off but he didn't pass the eye test at all.. Never looked comfortable or confident.. I'm sure alot of it had to do with his health & adapting to a new team, but the lack of chemistry probably played a large part too.. It just always seemed like he could be doing more than he was.. Hopefully we see him firing on all cylinders this year with a team that should fit him better & have much better chemistry..

Steve Nash might pay ex-wife more

PHOENIX -- An Arizona appellate court says Los Angeles Lakers star Steve Nash may have to pay additional child support for his three children and that he and his ex-wife can't say bad things about each other through social media.

A Court of Appeals panel's ruling Tuesday says a judge must consider ordering Nash to pay more than the children's "basic needs."

The court also upheld a judge's order barring the couple from disparaging each other through social media.

It said Alejandra Amarilla Nash used her Twitter account to make a "biting criticism" of Nash after their divorce was granted.

The ruling says the order doesn't violate her free-speech rights because both agreed to limit their speech under their joint custody agreement.

The couple divorced in 2011. They have a son and two daughters.
