    Ok Nostradamus.

    I don't see how OKC is the clearcut favorite in the West. The Spurs can and should've beat them, but OKC went crazy from the outside. The Lakers with their additions can most certaintly beat them. As for Miami they're the defending champs and should be considered the favorite, but they aren't unbeatable by any means.

    I give Dallas an outside shot. They have great depth. If Dirk can regain his 2011 form they have a chance.

    ROFL. You took a one line tweet that wasn't backed by a link to the actual stats and use that as your basis for reality? Over things like ... actually watching him play? HAHAHAHA.

    Believe what you want.
    Nash sucks on defense. Stats will back that up because it is 100% accurate. There will also be stats that make him look better than he is. That is the nature of stats.

    Until Nash wins series over Tony Parker he can't pretend to win those match ups. He wasn't at 35 much less 39.

    Nash will be entertaining at times (though the princeton offense removes most of that) but he will struggle defensively. he is simply not athletic enough to be a good defender.

    I've seen Steve Nash play either live or on TV more than 600 games.
    He is a terrible defender.

    Again no he's not. The stats clearly prove he's not a horrible defender.

    Dude I already gave you the link. You're clearly not intelligent enough to read it. The stat clearly proves Steve Nash is not a terrible defender like you claim he is. Nash already won a playoff series over Parker a couple of years ago in 2010. Matter of fact he swept him. I've watched Nash throughout his career. He's an incredible offensive player and defensively as I said underrated. He's been one of my favorite players and I'm very happy that he's a Laker. Dude his a first ballot HOF, a top 10 point guard of all time, and deserves to win a championship.

    a)even a broken clock is right twice a day

    b)the suns won that series entirely because of dragic's play, and ginobili being injured, yet again.

    Now I'm dipping back out of this thread until the NBA has something worth talking about.

    Yeah I'm sure Nash's averages of 22 points and 8 assists had nothing to do with it. :rolleyes:

    It's a shame. If it wasn't for that Nash would have a ring.

    ya, im sure the suns only lost to the spurs because of the refs, i mean, its not like the spurs won about 75 percent of the games they played vs the suns in the nash era or anything

    I like the lakers but they're dynasty is over I'm guessing. They just don't seem to have it anymore. Pau is not such a force anymore. They'll have trouble with the spurs who are old too.

    How are we done? We added an All Star point guard in Steve Nash and a terrific sixth man in Antawn Jamison. Also re-signed a solid young player in Jordan Hill.

    Pau isn't what he used to be, but he's still an All Star. Kobe is still one of the top players in the league, Nash as I said is still one of the better point guards in the league, Bynum is a beast and will only get better.

    The Lakers have a terrific team are a legit championship contender..
