« Nationwide On K-Fed's Side | Main | The NFL Goes To The Oscars »



I said it last year on a comment on another blog, but I'll say it again: the real comparison is Nash to Wayne Gretzky. Nash has a similar three-pack to Gretzky: outstanding shooter, pin-point passer, and phenomenal court vision, the ability to see the whole floor, find the open man, and anticipate where players, both from his own team and the opposition, are going to be.

Steve is a Canadian, remember. He's of an age where he would have grown up watching Gretzky, in an era when all Canadians where watching Gretzky with joyful amazement. Gretzky was the Michael Jordan of hockey, he transformed the game, and did things no one had seen before.

I don't like the comparison to Greg Maddux, because Steve Nash's body is constantly in movement, whereas Maddux pitched like a poker player: he looked phlegmatic and sleepy, a bit pudgy and non-athletic, which I'm sure made his mastery all the more tear-your-hair-out frustrating to the hitters.
