Steve Nash is the face, heart and soul of the Phoenix Suns…or in the words of Suns president for basketball operations Lon Babby, “He is the sun and the moon and the stars of this franchise” Most of their other star players have left for one reason or another, but Steve has always remained, but with one year left on his contract, his seven year stint in the desert looks like its coming to an end…According to my source close to Nash, Steve is asking for a trade so he can contend for the elusive Championship he’s been craving.. “Steve knows he can’t win in Phoenix, they need to rebuild and unfortunately Steve is not getting any younger. Nash wants out simply to win now” said my source…Nash recently said..”It’s pretty simple. There’s no guarantees. You can’t just go out and say, ‘Hey, can you go out and trade me to this team?” Steve reiterated his desire to stay a Sun to save face, but he’s done exactly that, and has given the Suns a list of a few teams he would like to play for next year..Yes he’s 37, but another team can definitely benefit from a guy who has led the league in assists for the fifth time in seven years. Good luck Steve, but the Suns are going to try their damnedest to convince you to stay. -TO
