    Nash gets his dough and he's HAPPY.
    TORONTO ****KING RAPTORS GET NOTHING BUT A MASSIVELY OVERPAID BACKLOADED CONTRACT OF $19M THEY OFFERED FIELDS AND THEY'RE ****KING SCREWED!

    GOD IS GOOD.

    Agreed, that's exactly what it sounds like. Good to know Grunwald held his ground heree. As much as Nash would have been great, if we lost Shump in the process it would have been counter productive.

    They can take back the contract, but that would be a death sentence to them as a franchise to do so. No one will ever want to talk a deal with them again unless they absolutely have no choice.

    Ill say though, the only thing that scares me about lin/kidd is if Lin goes down for a significant period of time. I really dont like kidd/douglas all that much more then I liked Bibby/Douglas....I hope we get some depth and I really hope Lin stays healthy

    Especially considering that the Lakers' first-rounders aren't going to be any good.

    And the Raptors must feel like morons. They're literally paying Landry Fields 20 million dollars over the next 3 years just so to make a run at Steve Nash. Now that they don't have Nash...as I understand it, if the Knicks don't match, Toronto has no choice but to sign Fields...LOL.
    Reports were that Nash wanted to stay close to his kids who live in Phoenix so that was probably the main factor.

    He said it would be wierd for him to wear a Lakers jersey after playing them so much in the playoffs as rivals, i guess his word doesn't mean anything.


    -Positives are numerous for us

    We can now not worry about matching an offer for Lin, even if it is a poison pill, we need him and we will worry about year 3 and 4 when that time comes. Resign Lin to whatever.

    We don't have to resign Landry Fields who I believed was a bad fit on this team, especially with Shumpert and Smith taking all his minutes because Landry fails to hit an open shot.

    We can address the PG issues by spending less money. Sign Kidd or Prigioni as a backup and we can still get solid production.

    We keep Iman Shumpert, who we all believe is going to be an all around stud in the NBA for years to come.

    The Knicks were probably torn between deciding to trade him, now they don't have to worry.
    Let's focus on the future and hope Lin can orchestrate the offense

    If we go into next season with Lin/Prigioni then we learned nothing from last years debacle.

    LMAO! I can only imagine the riot in the streets of LA if Stern were to veto another 1 of their trades. I highly doubt he would do it to them again.

    Nash to Lakers is the make-up call for vetoing CP3 deal.

    This is good news. I would love to have Kidd as a solid backup PG. Giving up 22 year old Shump for 38 year old Nash was like giving your arm 3x the strength but your arms will fall off in a few months. Good if you only care about short-term, but overall bad in the long-term. You would be trading a youthful defender for an aged offender
