Very few NBA PGs have had such a combination of stats and wins in a year.
I never said his numbers were bad. Last year Nash did what no one expected. He took an Amare-less suns team to the conference finals which is absolutely remarkable. His numbers were up and they were once again incredible.
But Dirk had as good a season, a better record, and a supporting cast no better than Nash.
