The main argument is whether or not a player who doesn't really have a defensive game should win a title that usually goes to somebody who can play on both ends of the floor. But Phoenix, with the addition of Nash, now has the best record in the league. Homecourt advantage throughout the entire playoffs! The only other Phoenix team to do that was the 92-3 Barkley/K.J. squad that got beat in six agonizing games against Jordan's Bulls (of which I watched every minute). Barkley was the MVP that year. And he was a great defensive player. But even Barkley, the other day, agreed that Nash deserves the award. Greasy hair aside, the dude makes all of his his teammates better. He is John Stockton without the pout. I predict he helps put the dagger in the heart of his old team--the Mavs. But I don't think he'll be able to get past the Spurs who can put the suddenly inspired Tony Parker or the always reliable Bruce Bowen on him to slow his ass down. But I'll have fun watching him dismantle the Mavs!! And I love Canada!!!
