Suns Make a Blockbuster Deal

Steve Nash doesn’t seem too happy about the trade. He said, “I take this personally and I take my career home with me. I care about my teammates. When you lose two of your best friends on a team suddenly, it’s hard.”

After his bad performance in the game after the trade was announced, he said, “I was emotionally drained and just couldn’t give the guys what they needed tonight.”
