You look at the confidence that big men play with offensively when they're running alongside Nash. He makes the game easy for them and he puts complete trust in them to take shots.

What we saw from Bargnani offensively in that game against the Heat last year where he played with passion lighting up Bosh, we will see that skill on display, almost nightly with Nash feeding him the ball.

Nash/Bargs will be lights out offensivley. The young gunz are pretty good on both ends of the court, and they have confidence competing against all the young "up and coming" teams in the NBA. When you look at how they performed against teams like OKC, I think we're alot closer than people think in terms of competing in the playoffs. Nash brings us to that level immediately.

From what I've read, the team doesn't plan on coddling Bargnani this year and it's going to be sink or swim, if Casey can show Bargnani how to become reliable on defense and perhaps even use his athleticism to make some plays on that end, we would have one hell of a squad with Nash at the point.
And it has been pointed out that there's no way PHO would trade Nash to a rebuilding team because after all he's done for them they're going to deal him to a team that'll give him one final shot at the playoffs so what's the point of this?
