On Steve Nash 2
And nobody, NOBODY, has ever been as good at making their teammates better. The year before Mr. Nash came to the Suns, they were a sorrowful 29-53 team. The first year with Nash (and, yes, he was basically their only acquisition), they skyrocketed to 62-20, a 33 victory increase. Apart from Larry Bird's initial year with the Celtics, I can't for the life of me think of a player who has had such an immediate impact. Again, it's just too damn bad that the fellow doesn't have a ring.
