Default Steve Nash: "I don't think I will join another team; I prefer to stay in Phoenix."

Quote:
In a press conference hosted by his sponsor, sportswear brand Luyou, Steve Nash stated unequivocally that he won't play in China during the NBA lockout, saying he wants to stay close to his children rather than play in the Chinese Basketball Association, according to China Daily. "Like I said before, if I did not have three children to take care of I would like to come and play in the CBA," Nash told Chinese media in Shanghai Monday.

Nash went on to pay compliments to Yao Ming's charity work as well as Yao's work on the court, and then announced that he thinks it's unlikely he'll change teams in his quest for the so far elusive championship ring.

"Every player wants the ring. We were very close to it many times. Changing teams may be a way. But I don't think I will join another team; I prefer to stay in Phoenix. Hopefully, we can go further next season," said Nash.

I'm sure the "should we trade Nash?" talk won't end with this, but Nash's repeated public expressions of desire to stay in Phoenix, coupled with Suns President Lon Babby referring to him as the "sun, moon and stars of this franchise" makes it highly unlikely Steve Nash ends his career in any uniform other than a purple and orange Phoenix Suns jersey. I like to take balanced views of things, to see issues rationally and practically, with all their associated complexity and nuance. But, in this case? Nope. I want Steve Nash to play for the Suns for as long as possible, and that's all there is to it.

It could be true, but what would you expect Nash to say? He's being the loyal team guy.

Default Steve Nash not looking to go overseas during lockout

Like everyone else, he'd be interested in playing in China... but family obligations want to keep him closer to home:

the only thing I can begrudge him for it the rapid fire way that whole deal went down.

other than that, Cuban was not going to match the deal the Suns gave him.

This is an obvious misquote. He has 2 daughters and 1 son, not 3 daughters. Are you sure they were speaking to Steve Nash?

dude has totaled over 100 million dollars according to BBR and has made the most of his abilities despite not being an athletic freak like many in the league. Championships are the team-goal, but I'd hardly say he's "stupid" for wanting to play where he wants to play regardless. If anybody is stupid... it's been the Suns management of the last 5 or so years, they are lucky Nash has a liking for Phoenix IMO.

This +1 sometimes its not all about the glory, if he's happy were he is good for him, Im sure its hard to be away from family and its nice to see not everyone wants to ring chase PHX had its time. Nash actually is a pretty classy and funny dude also. props
