It comes down to two words - team needs. The Suns don't need someone to take over the offense because they have guys who can score the basketball - they need a player that creates, and in my opinion nobody is doing that better then Nash recently.
Philly on the other hand needs that scorer. Nash would be capable, but I don't believe he's someone you build an offense around to the tune of 25 shots a game. That's not his style.
Tell me how AI and MArbury are alike. AI is ten times better than MArbury and HOF plus a legit 1st option on any team. He has proven he could be a playmaker and his teammates respect him unlike marbury.
Nash would make Phili good because he'd share the ball with everyone, all the time. Iverson looks first for his own shot, then if it's not there then he'll pass. In Phoenix, sure Iverson would put up great numbers, but the team would not succeed. Iverson requires the ball at all times to be effective, Nash doesn't necessarily, with Diaw doing a lot of the handling also. It'd be the Iverson show, as it is in Phili.
marbury isnt your allen iverson buddy...iverson can give huge boost to the offense that is already the best in the league, plus the floor is spread so much that if they double him he can just pass it right out and they have so many fnishers, if they dont double them then they are done, either way tey would be much better plus defensivly, iverson is much better than nash at defense and is great at deflecting passes. Iverson can also just drive it into the paint faster and just throw it to marion or amare for teh monster jam instead of having to throw it out to the free throw line to webber each time he drives in. He would have so many more assist than what he is getting right now. plus, back in marbury's day, amare wasnt at the level at which he is right now and teh team would just perform much better now with more experience overall. philly on the other hand would be much worse than the raptors.
yeah im serious. The floor being so spread would make him unstopable.
the ball needs to move for the floor to spread, AI's 25 to 30 shots a night make that impossible, part of the reason the floor is spread is because Nash is a serious threat to set up a teammate, the floor would not be spread hence your arguments lick balls.
BTW with Marbury I said 'barometer' not the same, AI is much better, what I meant was he gives you an idea of how a ball controlling shot first player fits into the Phoenix system with those players, not well
