are you making the argument that unless nash shoots off the dribble, he can't hit shots?
No, I meant I have seen Kidd play off the ball in recent years with Dirk and Dallas that worked fine, and while Nash played with Dirk aswell, I would see it as a waste of Nash's gifts as he can still be a top 5-10 PG, when Kidd maybe not so much anymore. I really wouldn't want Nash on my team as mostly a spot up shooter without being a floor leader. I'd rather take Kidd to play with Rose as Kidd can do a whole bunch of other things Nash can't like rebound, steal, play defence. No question overall Nash is the better shooter. I think Kidd would fit best though.
