There isn't much that can be said about Steve Nash that everyone already doesn't know about.
He will look to make another case as the league's best point guard, if not best player, this upcoming season. Although he is 36 years old, he is able to perform at times better than Chris Paul and Derron Williams, and it's hard to imagine that they will be able to perform at this level when they reach the same age.
Nash has one of the league's best basketball IQ and uses it to to be the most creative player in the league. If there is a definition of a true floor leader, Nash has to be on top of your list. He is possibly the best playmaker in the game, making everyone around him better than anyone else could (ex: Shawn Marion, Channing Frye, Jared Dudley, Amar'e Stoudemire, Joe Johnson).
He is arguably the best shooter and passer in the game, and makes a strong case for best shooter of all time. Not many people give him respect for this, they only see the fact he hasn't won a ring. He will continue to shot 50 percent from the field, 40 percent from behind the arc, and 90 percent from the free throw line until he gets too old to play anymore. He also makes some of the toughest shots in the league, and makes it look way too easy.
He is a terrific ball handler in traffic, and especially on the fast break. He is always looking to set up his teammates, and is sometimes many steps ahead of them or the defenders.
People can say all they want about the fact that he hasn't won, and isn't as good as his numbers show, but it's all there: two-time MVP, seven-time All-Star, seven-time All-NBA Team, two-time Skills Challenge winner, continues to lead the league in assists at age 36 years old, the most consistent shooter the game has possibly seen, and is one of the most respected international players the NBA has ever seen.
Even though he isn't a great defender, the Suns are excellent at allowing him to defend the least offensive threat the opposing team has to ensure he is playing at his best ability on the offensive side of the game. This is a great game plan and can help them out during the long season ahead.
Look for Nash to score 15 points or more points while dishing out 10 plus assists per night for another season with the Phoenix Suns.
He will make $10.3 million this upcoming season.
