He played with more than enough talent on some of those teams. It wasn't like he played with the 2011-2012 Suns every season

No.
But joining the Lakers will have him knocked down 1 peg in the ranking.

It's not like he played bad in the post-season, so no, it doesn't affect his career. If he played like shit and it was his fault that he couldn't get there then yes, but that's not the case.

Nash was still always the best player on his team. The dynasty Spurs were a pretty amazing team. Lebron "made the finals" and got swept by them. Does that make Lebron better because he had to play them in the finals and got swept? Where the Suns never got swept?

So if Nash had played in the East that makes him a better player?

Nash would have made the Finals if he was in the weak eastern conference like Lebron in 07.

I did it once in an all-time PG discussion thread, it was like months ago during offseason.

Edit: Heres the top 10 PG list:
1. Magic Johnson
2. Oscar Robertson
3. Isiah Thomas
4. Bob Cousy
5. John Stockton
6. Chris Paul
7. Walt Frazier
8. Jason Kidd
9. Gary Payton
10. Kevin Johnson

How many times did Nash lose to the Spurs and how many times in the conference finals? 3 times? 4 times? I remember I think once with the Mavs and couple times with the Suns I think.

Once against the Lakers right? Then other times the Spurs beat them in earlier rounds I think.

Jason Kidd > Nash

But their both great. I like Nash, but I don't see WHY this doesn't affect his career.

Because it is a team sport. Nash is only 1 of 10 players on the court. And his path to the finals is as (if not more) dependent on his team and the opposing team than just his individual talents. Considering he has had to come up against two of the best teams in the league to get into the finals for most of the past 10 years I don't think it is a knock against him.

it really only matters if you are in the top 20 of all time consideration list which he's no where near so no.

KJ? Really? The only thing arguable is that KJ had a higher peak, but it was extremely short and the rest of his career pales against Nash. Payton is arguable, but again not as much longevity and his accolades and accomplishments aren't really any better (unless you count a ring as a role player an accomplishment).

The rest I can see, but IMO Nash > Frazier (short peak/longevity) and currently Paul (which will change later on)
