Nash is still here, so fans should just enjoy the ride
One of the greatest point guards I've ever seen play the game is still a proud member of the Phoenix Suns. Will we be able to say the same thing a year from now? Not only do I not have that answer, but I strongly believe that even Steve Nash himself has no idea whether that will be the case.
As we all know, Steve is not only a fantastic finely tuned athlete, but he has proven to be sound in mind as much if not more than body. When this season comes to an end, I have no doubt that Steve will explore every option in front of him, and as he mentioned Tuesday with Burns and Gambo, he's earned that right. That said and known, Suns fans need to take their minds off the future and as a long haired public access television star once said "live in the now!"
By no means am I insinuating that the Suns front office should not currently be thinking about their strategy moving forward, nor do I think they should be taking their advice from Wayne and Garth. I am merely suggesting to Suns fans not to let these final games of the regular season and potential playoff games go by without appreciating what we have in front of us.
The Suns are down to their final five regular season games and have complete control of their playoff destiny. They've done so playing with a sense of heart and determination that is on par with any teams I've been around. They are a bunch of good guys who are very easy to root for, and the chemistry they have developed as a group is apparent to anyone paying attention.
The playoffs have in essence come early here in Phoenix, and I hope Suns fans enjoy them while they're here.
