    You'd rather watch Steve Nash than LeBron James?

    Really?

    Yes. I'd rather watch team basketball than a lot of isolation, one-on-one offense.

    That's ridiculous. There's literally not one thing that Steve Nash can do on a basketball court that LeBron can't. Watch a Cavs or Lakers game, and actually watch it, and you'll see that there's very little one on one basketball. Late in games? Sure there is, as there should be.

    This is the time. The real Reds organization is back.

    Impressive that 3 of the 4 conference semifinals have ended in sweeps.

    As for the series that isn't a sweep... Colin Cowherd said the other day on his show that an NBA insider told him that if the Cavs don't make it to the Finals, LeBron is gone from Cleveland.

    I'd rather watch Nash, too. LeBron is not all that aesthetically pleasing, as he's strong enough to bull his way to the hoop, get fouled, and cash in on free throws. Nash, OTOH, is a slight, undersized, floppy haired point guard playing against (and succeeding) while often almost a foot shorter.

    To put it another way, Nash = modern-day Maravich.

    And, as to the Knicks, I'd love to see them sign Bosh and LeBron, then re-sign David Lee. That trio could be fun to watch. But who's going to get them the ball?

    I don't think they can sign all three Scrap - I think David Lee is going to be a sign and trade. They have enough for two max contracts (and the most money to spend of any NBA team). But its still only enough for two.

    As for who would get them the ball - LeBron would be primary ball-handler. And hey, maybe Kahn will trade us Rubio.

    No one's saying Lebron isn't an incredible basketball player, him and Kobe are 1a and 1b.

    But Lebron can't shoot nearly as well as Nash, he has shot 43% from the 3pt line for his career. Lebron is an excellent passer and ball handler but he's not as good at either of those as Nash.

    But it's more about entertainment, no one is saying that Nash is better than James. I will submit that Nash does more to make the players around him better.

    Add FT shooting to the list as well. Nash is one of the best in NBA history.

    The Cavs offense makes me want to tear my eyeballs out. LeBron is a great player, but Steve Nash is more entertaining to watch. If I had to start a team tomorrow, I'd pick LeBron. If I want to watch an entertaining basketball game that's going to keep my attention, instead of 20 seconds of dribbling and fadeaway 3 pointers, give me Nash.

    Last home game for Lebron in Cleveland? Could be. And whither MVP Lebron? Stay tuned.

    If they don't beat a not great Boston team, I think he's out of there, and it's not looking good right now. A lot of people don't realize that after the Celtics hot start of 23-5, they were only 27-27 the rest of the year. So the Cavs are going to lose to a team that played .500 ball for over half the season.

    Cavs really stink up the joint last night. Celtics are playing well, but not *that* great. Cavs generate a lot of points off their defense but the NBA post-season is a lot of half-court games. And that's when the Cavs run Lebron 1 on 5 and the C's throw the kitchen sink at him. Its a testament to his level of skill and talent he does as well as he does.

    And I think Lebron is a fantastic basketball player and stupendous athlete, but I'd rather watch Nash endlessly create. Like listening to a sax jazz solo.
