Nash Calls Popovich "Best Coach in the League"
It all started with Phil Jackson playing his little mind games with the media, the public, the refs, and the opposition. Jackson accused Nash of travelling … frequently. However, Nash decided to take a little jab of his own by stating:
“It’s news to me. I’m fortunate. I don’t know if I’ve been called for a carry yet,” he said after the Suns practiced Saturday, then he added straight-faced: “I’ve never heard anyone accuse me of carrying it. I mean, the best coach in the league Gregg Popovich [of San Antonio] didn’t have a problem with it last week.”
Now I can’t say for sure if he meant it or was just trying to get under Phil’s skin, but it’s certainly debatable anyway. Now I am adding this as a 5th reason I want the Suns to beat LA.
In other news, Roger Mason just had hand surgery. I’m not exactly too concerned with this since I am betting he won’t be a Spur next season anyway.
