Steve Nash met with the media yesterday after that Dwight Howard sales pitch that didn’t quite do the trick. And some of his quotes are pretty telling:
“Ultimately, I think Dwight wasn’t comfortable here and didn’t want to be here and I think if he didn’t want to be here, there’s no point for anyone in him being here.”
“I think it kind of basically goes with what he said to the media that he never quite felt embraced in L.A. He never quite felt supported. That’s basically it.”
“He didn’t seem like he really wanted to do a pick-and-roll offense, maybe because he had run one in Orlando for so long and he wanted to get in the post more.”
Nash is too nice to say what was really bugging him – that Dwight just wanted everything out on a silver platter. And because everyone didn’t love him and they didn’t win all the time, it was time to move on to another place he could be crowned king. I guess Houston is that place. And it sounds like Nash is perfectly ok with that.
