From four letter:
"As for Nash, things are never really easy anymore playing for what's left of the Suns. But on a starting-over team that bears little resemblance to the high-octane outfit he QB'd from 2004-05 through the 2009-10 season, Nash is somehow still regularly playing textbook ball through the pain at age 37 and averaging 15.2 points and a shade under 10 assists on a team where he and Marcin Gortat are the only consistent scoring options."
Are you kidding me? Phoenix is 5 games under .500, and is only 3-10 against teams over .500 (compared to our 7-9 record against same). This is why I don't read national writers very often - they pick a guy and stick with him well past the point of reason. The All-Star game deserves young players who have earned it on the court, not based on reputation. Wins matter unless a guy is ridiculously productive.
For final comparison, see here. I'm not saying that Rubio should necessarily be in, but I don't think Steve Nash is the best choice either. [And I like Nash].
