So I read this article this morning on BDL
I find it interesting that Nash is uneasy about their season from the get-go, and feel like a poor start for them is inevitable. This is likely for 3 key reasons. First, they have a strange mish-mash of players that Hollinger is accurately referring to as 'small forwards anonymous.' Second, they have obvious defensive holes, even with Stoudemire gone. Third, their opening schedule is rough - in the first 2 months of the season, they will face Utah, LAL (twice), POR (thrice), SAS (twice), DEN (twice), MIA (twice), ORL, OKC, DAL, CHI, ATL and us. That's a lot of games in 2 months that you can probably wager money on them losing just due to the talent differential
With this in mind, I feel like the first two months of the season may break the backs of the Phoenix front office and send them into frantic rebuild mode. As such, does anyone think
B) that such a trade would add the 'elite' guy to our mix of solid-to-exceptional players? I seriously love Brooks, but would probably pull the trigger on a deal like this in a heartbeat.
