With Shaquille O'Neal now in Cleveland, might Nash be ready to finally leave Phoenix?
Here's what Nash had to say to the New York Post's Brian Lewis regarding that:
"Obviously I love New York City; I'm making this my home. Mike D'Antoni is one of my favorite coaches. So in a lot of ways it'd be amazing," said Nash, who lives in SoHo during the offseason. "But it's not simple; a lot of stuff has to go right for me to be in New York. And I'm happy in Phoenix. We'll see what happens.Not a lot of revealing stuff from Nash there, mostly because he's not a diva and wouldn't want to alienate Phoenix should something not work out. I think it would be a perfect fit, since Nash clearly wasn't the same under the Terry Porter style of offense in Phoenix. He did return to his old form under Alvin Gentry but that was with Shaq and Amare Stoudemire, whom the Suns are also interested in trading in the offseason.
"Obviously I live in the city and I love Mike, so it would definitely be an exciting option for me... It'd be a great option. And it's always good to have options."
While Nash would love to stay in Phoenix, he probably wouldn't if there were no pieces around him. That would seem to clear the way for a trade to the Knicks.
