I just saw a couple posters bring up nash in other threads and I cant quite call him Larry holmes status yet, he can still run an offense better then most but his defense is horendous and it will be impossible to win a championship with him getting 30 or more minutes a game.
With one bad defender in Amare and an inconsistent defender in Melo, every player the knicks add from this point on needs to be average at least defensively. No disrespect to the posters that would like to see Nash come to NY, I know your reasons are because of his offense, ability to run a team, and leadership...but I personally cant overlook his defense or lack of. I like Billups better at this point then Nash. We didnt really get to see him at his best but hes a good 3 point shooter, good free throw shooter, and makes clutch plays. While I would actually prefer a playmaker for the knicks, just not nash. Whatever playmaker the knicks get has to play defense too....CP3
