I bet he will be remembered more as a 2 time MVP rather a 2 time "non-deserving" MVP.


In the mind and the heart of the NBA fans he does not deserve to be an MVP. He is not the best player in his team nor he make his teammates better hire any PG in the NBA and they can even take this team to the play offs. IT is Mike D' Antoni's Sytem which make it better and his teammates are perennial ALL STAR.

Well, nice to see that your mind-reading abilities allow you to figure out what NBA fans think.

I think he deserved his MVP's.

You people act as if he didn't do anything on that team and it's extremely easy to get easy shots for his teammates. I understand the system is great, but you need a point guard like Nash who has great scoring ability and awesome playmaking ability to make it happen. The only other point guard that comes to mind is Jason Kidd, but offensively he wouldn't be able to produce like Nash, but other than that, no other point guard could do what he is doing in Phoenix.

I agree with him.

I'm a reverse racist, I immediately assume any white player isn't going to be much good.

You are probably always going to get a little racism towards guys who plays at an elite level in a sport that is dominated by another race. Tiger had to go through it too, to a larger extent and even that was nothing compared to black baseball players trying to break into the "white" leagues. Doesn't make it right though. No matter what anybody says, Dirk and Nash do get ripped on a lot IMO, with their race being the primary motivator in some cases. Hell I think even some white people are "racist" towards them.

he is white.

and reverse-racism is one of the dumbest terms around

Somebody ought to ask Steve Nash what the crap "reverse racism" is supposed to mean.

Discrimination against white players due to their skin color is still what we call racism.

Just because it's not a white guy discriminating against a black guy it's not racism?

If black-on-white is "reverse racism," what's hispanic-on-asian discrimination?

"Sideways racism?"

"Diagonal racism?"

Just wanna say on nash, that people keep using his team mates against him but its not like other MVPs didn't have stellas team mates. Besides we've seen over and over that the minute nash goes down the entire team flounders. Its not like they are lacking competent ball handlers.
Nash brings more to the table than being a guy who can penetrate and pass. He's got court vision and leadership that helps the suns team tick. Now I don't think he's winning a ring with that team but since MVP is a reg season award anyway that shouldn't matter.

edit:as far as reverse racism goes...whatever dude you got 2 MVPs and people are jealous, just let it go.
