Steve Nash to the New York Knicks?


Just what NYC needs, another hipster skateboarding around the city.  Well actually it would be okay with the Mug if it is two time NBA MVP Steve Nash.  Nash who lives in the West Village in the NBA's offseason, was pictured this past Friday in full Nike gear skateboarding around Tribeca.  Wonder what kind of board Nash rocks?  We'll send him a tweet and see if The Mug can find out (The Mouth used to kickflip it for the Long Island ladies on his Santa Cruz deck.)  The NY Post reported Nash and the New York Knicks met on Sunday at the Knicks practice facility in Greenburgh, NY.  Knicks rockstar owner James Dolan (thats a joke) and head coach Mike Woodson were present for the three hour meeting where the Knicks discussed possible sign-and-trade scenarios which would land Nash in Knicks orange and blue for around $6 million a year.  Without a sign and trade, the Knicks would "only" be able to offer Nash their midlevel exception at $3.09 million.  The Toronto Raptors are the current favorites to land Nash.  ESPN reported Sunday that the Raptors have already offered Nash a 3-year, $36 million deal. Nash who is Canadian recently stated "I definitely feel I want to be validated monetarily to an extent.  It's still very important.  I think money in many ways represents respect." Hey Steve, you know what also represents respect?  A CHAMPIONSHIP RING!!!  Come to New York and help the Knicks win one!
