    Default Miller or Nash?

    Ok, i hear fom many different people and websites we most likely will be looking for a point Guard this offseason. The first two that come into my Mind are Steve Nash and Andre Miller. Both are good in their own respective ways.

    So let's say Nash indeed opts out this offseason, and Philly does not resign their PG. We have two main choices here. If you were Donnie, who would you pick?

    Both of them would have to agree to sign with us for the MLE. I don't think both of them would do that, especially Miller. I could see Nash coming for cheap because of D'antoni and NYC.

    But if we're in a situation where we have to choose, I would go with Nash. He's familiar with the system, he's a better passer and shooter. He makes the players around him better, and I think he's just better overall than Miller. Plus, him coming here might get other free agents to come here.

    What about Mike Bibby? He will be a FA after this season.

    No thank you.

    He only shoots like 43% compared to Nash and miller shooting nearly 50%, and he only gets 4 assists per game.

    miller and Nash both shoot better

    and Tuner, the reason Miller's 3pt FG% is so low is because he doesn't take many threes. not even one every other game.

    Just to make sure you guys are clear on this..Phoenix has a team option to keep Nash for the 2009/2010 season. I would say its probably 99.8-100% chance that they keep him since they are a far better team with him, and have no 1st round pick next year as a benefit for losing.

    you made it seem though in the 1st post that Nash has a choice whether he opts out or not.

    Its Phoenix's choice and they have no reason to release him. Just go for 1 last run with Nash-Stat-Shaq since they will all be gone the following year anyway.

    Well if they do miss the playoffs this year (and most likely will) they might just say f*ck it and rebuild from the ground up. That's whats strongly being implied about now with all the rumors,

    I guess..but you have to admit there is almost 0 chance that will happen, since they don't have a 1st round pick and obviously when healthy they are as good as the elite teams in the west.

    They might look for a trade so they can get something in return. Not many team like to see people leave as FA. Steve Kerr might look for a trade.

    I agree with JayJ, but Miller is an under-rated defender for sure. He blocks a decent amount of shots at the point. Nash knows the system, that's true. But as far as longevity goes I'd probably have a tough time choosing to take Bibby, Miller or Nash.

    They're all highly capable pgs, with a flaw when compared to one another:

    -Nash is OLD
    -Miller has at times been close to an All Star level player but his skills are fading.
    -Bibby's on par with Miller (though a lot more dependent in big situations.)

    Massive head scratcher.

    I'll just say that each of them is better than Duhon.
