Suspend Nash

Read an interesting point today in that Steve Nash would make an ideal member of the Colorado Divalanche the way he flops around on the floor. Having never seen the video of the so-called cheap shot by the Fresh Prince of Inglewood until today, here it is.



Did Horry even touch the guy? You can't really tell the way Nash just kind of flops around there. And to be honest, that flop was barely at a WWF level as Nash just kind of lunged into Horry and fell down trying to draw a flagrant foul. Once again, as mentioned in this space previously, there have been three incidents in this series, and the common denominator is Nash. From the gash on his nose, the ball-butt on Bruce Bowen's knee and now this flop. Nash is just some Canadian punk who is using all of this b.s. soccer techniques to try to draw fouls.

The Suns should feel fortunate that Nash is still allowed to play in this series after all of that cheap stuff.

I'm sure if this were the NFL, Goodell would have already suspended him.

I think the NBA is sending out exactly the appropriate message. I think teams should be encouraged to use the scrubs on their bench to take out the stars on the other team. There are enough guys in the NBA who know how to play basketball; what the league needs is guys like Jungle Jim Loscutoff, an enforcer who couldn't find the basket in a police lineup. Make it more like hockey; that's what I say. Who can argue with the success of the NHL?

Nobody has to make the NFL, NBA, or MLB more like hockey. The cheap shots, headhunting, brawls, fistfights, and other crap are already in those sports. The only difference is that if Horry were a hockey player, he would be in an ICU unit this morning wondering why he can't feel his teeth

As for the lack of success the NHL has had in this country, big whoopty doo. Kenny G sold more records than John Coltrane, so yeah, tell me more about the impeccable taste of the American consumer.

What right do the Spurs, a team that boasts Manu Ginobili, have to bitch about someone flopping?

What are you kidding me?! Nash totally got pulverized by Horry. That wasn't a flop, dude. I'd love to see YOU keep your balance after taking a shot like that. Whatever.

The NBA is a few more incidents like this away from having its playoffs relegated to the Vs. network.
