The 2011-12 NBA season isn't even over yet, and Steve Nash is already talking next season. It's been that kind of season for the Phoenix Suns. And, unless some really drastic moves get made, it's going to be that kind of season for the Suns again next year. So, Nash—who is playing out the final year of his contract right now—is starting to think about what he'll do once he becomes a free agent in the summer.
"I'm not coming back to the Suns if there isn't improvement," he said on The Dan Patrick Show yesterday.
But, if the Suns are out of the equation, where is the former NBA MVP going to land? Well, according to Nash, one possible destination is South Beach. During the same interview, he revealed that if LeBron James asks him to join the Miami Heat, he will definitely consider playing with the "Big 3."
"I would listen," he said. "He's phenomenal. I love what they're doing there. A lot of people don't like them because they put all that talent there. But they're professional, they play hard, they play together. Their coaching staff has done a great job, so I have a tremendous amount of respect for them. I would definitely listen."
Question is, will they ask? At 38, Nash is no spring chicken. But, he's still very productive. And he sounds willing to do whatever it takes to get a ring. So, if the Heat can't win a 'chip this season, adding Nash to the mix might be the best move for everyone. Give the guy a call, Bron-Bron.
