IF he was in a different, but he wasn't, so throw that thought out the window.
As good as Marion, Stoudemire, Barbosa, Diaw, and Bell are, that team just isn't the same without Nash running the point, period.
In his first year
He led the league in assists (11.1)
Was one of the most efficent shooters in the league
He returned to the Suns and they led the league in per game scoring (110) — a 16-point per game improvement over the previous season.
He returned and the Suns went from a 29-53 losing season to a 62-20 winning record, which led the league.
In 2004-05 Nash averaged 15.5 points, 11.5 assists, 3.3 turnovers and shot 50.2 percent from the field, 88.7 percent from the foul line and 43.1 percent from beyond the arc.
Last season he averaged 18.8 points, 10.5 assists, 3.5 turnovers and shot 51.2 percent from the field, 92.1 percent from the foul line and 43.9 percent from beyond the arc.
Of the three seasons, he is averaging more points and assists and shooting a higher percentage from the field and from three-point range this year.
This season Nash had his best season, which could adds to the fact he got MVP votes this year. I still say Lebron, Duncan, then Nash are my top 3 MVP's.
This isn't to you, but in GENERAL And people get so MAD at Nash when he won two MVP's in a row, and other ledgends in the NBA didn't. Who gives a ****? No one is saying Nash is better than those guys, stop being haters and taking credit away from the Canadian Kid.
