    The Suns? Is that a typo?

  • EtheKnickFan

    @Jukai–I was thinking the same exact thing.

  • umm

    @Jukai Nash and Hill are going to retire in two years or something, so the suns are in the same position as the celtics or to a lesser degree the lakers with ageing players

  • mytiman

    Weird that the Suns are pushing for a deal.


    loooooooooooooooooool what are the suns pushing hard for. Nash ain’t bringing them anywhere.

    Because Nash is the only thing keeping them relevant and in the black. Any years of him lost means less revenue and visibility for the Suns.

  • LA Huey

    I’m guessing the Suns because they’re pretty much in the same position as Orlando with Dwight: Gotta squeeze one more year of juice outta that orange.

    Love it, we all probably had some other comments ready, but then saw the Suns and thought was Jukai typed…

  • Rainman

    Why would the Suns be a typo? They have an aging Steve Nash that can only play for so much more longer…

    Because Robert Sarver is one of the cheapest owners in the league. But he has Steve Nash, and the organizations cash cow is getting older every day.

  • Dre Baller

    because Nash still has some trade value

    why would any group of particualr teams push for a deal for the weekend… ALL groups, players and owners alike should be crawling toward the finish line at this point. idc if ur the suns or OKC a deal needs to get done PERIOD.
