So I was discussing the Garnett trade with a friend, and part of the discussion was how KG coming to the East helps change the dynamics a bit of the Top NBA players, most of whom play out West. So we did a quick run through of who we thought WERE the top NBA players, and we differed dramatically over Steve Nash. I happen to think Nash is awesome, one of the best players in the league – but I wouldn’t go as far as to say he’s one of the top five players in the league, which was what my friend was arguing.
So I thought it would be interesting to see what you folks thought. After all, few things are more divisive than what people think about Steve Nash, right? Ever since he won the first MVP, it’s been a big topic (and then he won the SECOND MVP, and then he ALMOST won a THIRD MVP in a row!!!) – so now I put it to you folks – where would you rank Steve Nash among the NBA’s best?
