"I really don't know what to say ... I mean, how many times can you talk about it?" said a bewildered Nash, who had all his faculties despite a blow that cost him six stitches and the Suns a chance at a victory. "I think some of us just didn't have the fire it takes to be a world championship team.Oh, yeah. We call that "Detroit Pistons Disease," from which the Pistons have seemed to recover this postseason, but not before spreading the malady to the Suns. Honestly, I hadn't noticed it in the Suns ... possibly because everyone looks like they're playing on fast forward against Smush Parker and Kwame Brown.
"We give up size to pretty much every team. I think we have to play harder and a little more desperate."
But if that's what Nash says, that pretty much makes it truth. No one knows Amare Stoudamire, Shawn Marion, and the rest of the Suns better than he does, seeing that he's largely responsible for much of the success they've had in their careers.
There are enough things working against the Suns in this series against the Spurs. If this is what Nash believes, then I believe the Suns are pretty much cooked.
