When The Going Gets Tough, The Tough Pick and Roll

Now that’s what I’m talking about. Now that’s a REAL series.

steve nash amare stoudamireOk fine it’s only Phoenix’s first win against the Lakers, and the Lakers are still ahead by 1. But I’m just saying, that was a good game. A damn good, fine example of playoff basketball the way I remember it. Where guys where throwing themselves and each other all over the place, getting injured not just because of the game but from hitting each other.

Nash, Griffin and What's Rare in the NBA

Do you know what’s rare in the NBA? Or in most pro, or even top amateur sports for that matter? No, not a 7 footer with great handles. No, not even a white guy Caucasian with hops. What’s truly rare is a self-effacing, humble yet smart and intelligent athlete, but with skills. And when I say that, I mean someone who can play and act like a pro, knows, respects and understands the game yet doesn’t feel the need to slap it in everyone’s face like he’s the biggest thing around (because he’s already a big thing).

My Game Is Made From Finding The Open Man

Not being in a rush. Whenever you try to force things it tends to go the opposite way. If there’s a behind the back pass that presents itself then do it but don’t go out there looking to do it.

No truer words.

Steve and Baron Have A Lot Of Time On Their Hands

Ok before you watch the video, I’ll explain it first. Step Brothers is a Will Ferrell comedy, and IBeatYou.com is a website where people challenge each other in all sorts of ways. Steve Nash and Baron Davis are both regulars there, and they often receive (and accept) challenges ordinary people throw at them, with varying results.

Now, someone made a ‘Best Movie Spoof’ challenge, and Nash accepted. So:
