If we were to give away Shumpert, who after his first NBA season was widely regarded as a top 10 back-court defender in the league for Nash............I'd have some serious sand in my vagina.
We lose our picks in the T Mac and Melo deals, and basically come away with the equivalent of a lottery pick courtesy of sheer, unadulterated luck, and now we're looking to meddle with that?
At the cost of Shumpert, I just don't see there being an equilibrium considering Nash's age and our need at the 2.
Of course, and it goes without saying really, having Steve Nash would be awesome! But not if Shump's involved. We're just not in a situation desperate enough to ship off an up and coming all defensive caliber, super athletic 2.
If Phoenix were to take advantage of Dolan successfully, I'd be right at the front of the anti-Dolan revolt outside MSG.
