    Nash to LA!

    Post by shabbs on Wed Jul 04, 2012 8:49 pm

    Heh heh. No, not that Nash... looks like the other Nash is headed to LA... the basketball Nash... Steve Nash...

    http://espn.go.com/los-angeles/nba/story/_/id/8130840/sources-steve-nash-headed-los-angeles-lakers-sign-trade-deal

    The Raptors were pushing hard for this, and even offer-sheeted Landry Fields to help prevent the Knicks from going after Nash...

    And now in comes LA to steal the show.

    Raptors got Cussed large.

    if it is a sign and trade, then no. If his rights were traded, then yes, so long as he is not re-signed by LAK.

    Seems that way... all the pro sports teams are losers in Toronto. Jays, Raptors, Toronto FC, Leafs, Argos...

    I would have said all other Canadian teams, but there's only one in the NBA.

    But in the NHL, nobody wants to play in Canada.

    Yeah, it gets very complicated but basically in order to play in Canada, there's a long list of criteria one has to satisfy, like being drafted by the team, and having invested enough time into the team and settled down in the city, being from the city or area, being a rookie never played in the NHL and signing as a UFA, or being overpaid.

    ...

    So basically because Steve Nash qualifies as a Superstar, the only way he would play in Canada is if i) the team was in BC (sorry Grizzlies), or ii) TO overpaid him.

    The Raptors also SUCK, and I'm sure Nash would like another run at a championship before he is through. Plus, his family is in Phoenix, so he wants to be close to them. Toronto never had a shot.

    The Nash to the Raptors idea made for a nice but yeah, no reason for him to come here. And he wants a chance at a ring, not happening in Toronto for a long long time.
