    Neck??? a … nightmare? …. now ‘THAT’s’ a nightmare. (i.e., the fact that Steve Nash has a nightmare is itself a nightmare for everyone).

    The season hasn’t begun but his minor aches possibly indicate a sign of things to come for Nash. I’m starting to believe that he’d possibly miss 1/3 of the team’s games. If so I’d doubt the team would keep Nash for another season given his salary.

    However, if their belief is that he brings experience and can help the younger players then management should consider making him part of the staff along with D Fish. Shouldn’t consider full inversion, more so at a 45 degree angle (Teeter).

    However, I believe Farmar is ready and willing to take on a bigger role which involves playing more minutes and being a leader. Given this Farmar and Young may prove to be the biggest pickups for the team. Young’s shooting ability and athleticism combined with Farmar’s overall play that also translates defensively.

      I can’t argue many of the points you bring up, there all valid. I’d just say lets be patient with the current process first.

      Nash has always been able to play through injuries like these. He’s just never had the constant spotlight on every little thing like he’s getting this season. Some of it is understandable because of last season and his age, but he played 29 minutes Friday night. That pass he made to Shawn Williams tells me that his neck is not going to keep him out of action. I like Farmar, but he is not Nash. He is going to really help this team, but Nash still has a lot left in the tank. Was watching some Nash highlights from last season on You-Tube today. I think we forget all the things this guy can do. We will need all our players this season. I don’t see Nash missing a lot of games. I think he will be here next season as well if he stays reasonably healthy. I have no problem with him being part of the staff as long as he’s a player-coach. I am not anxious to see him retire. There are plenty of players in the league who aren’t close to the skill-set of Steve Nash. Why don’t we wait and see how this season goes before we start talking about getting rid of him?

        Just throwing it out there but one thing that helped to extend Nash’s career was Suns training staff. Many veteran players have credited them for their revival which includes Shaq as well as Grant Hill to name a few.

        He’ll likely be playing close to 25 minutes a night. Agree, Nash still has the touch that he’s known for but time will tell if he can stay healthy.

          I agree that the Suns training staff is probably the best in the league, but Nash takes extremely good care of himself. He has some sort of personal trainer he works with, and he’s really strict about diet, etc. You’re right–only time will tell if he can stay healthy. I’m not really worried about these little things like the neck and the ankle. He seems able to play with those. It’s the major things that keep you out of games that is more of a concern. I think he can manage the small things, even without the Suns’ trainers-at least I hope so. I think most fans underestimate how important he is to this team.
