It wasn't always clear with that team. Wasn't as if they were throwing doubles at Nash to take him out of the game. Teams weren't watching tape, thinking about tailoring their defense around stopping Steve Nash. Plenty of times they would try to limit Amare or Marion (earlier). Hard to focus on one player when you had 5 guys who all spread the floor and could score prolifically.
It was clear with the Lakers who opposing defenses were trying to limit.
