Steve Nash is beginning to get annoyed. And he has every right to be. After devoting the majority of his career to the Phoenix Suns, leading them to the playoffs multiple times, the 38-year-old point guard has been dissed, as the team refuses to make another title run while Nash's career comes to a close.
In an interview with FOX Sports Radio, Nash admitted that unless the team makes moves that would give him a chance to win a ring, he does not see them in his future.
"I'm not going to come back to the Suns if there isn't an improvement. If they're not ambitious and they're not looking to upgrade the roster seriously—and I think they are," he said.
Unlike Sacramento and Cleveland, Phoenix would not be making the addition to help it in the future. Nash is on his final tank of gas, as is Duncan. Both are over 35 years of age, and it is not likely that four years from now either player will still be in the league.
Still, Nash deserves a ring, or at least a shot at one. By bringing in Duncan, you are pairing two of basketball's greatest ever, making a duo deadlier than ever imagined. Though old, Nash is still a top point guard, as shown in his All-Star appearance this year.
Duncan, too, is still one of the league's best power forwards. With experience and knowledge like no other players in the game, the Duncan/Nash duo would give Phoenix one last shot at a title.
