Last offseason LeBron James was able to convince Chris Bosh and Dwyane Wade to join him in Miami.
Will Steve Nash be next?
James, who is either bored, playing GM or both, sent out a tweet Thursday that got the NBA world abuzz.
Maybe @SteveNash in a Heat uni! So we can help each other get our 1st ring
For what it's worth, this idea isn't exactly new. The Heat have been in need of a point guard since, well, Tim Hardaway retired, and with James, Wade and Bosh on the floor could use someone who has no real interest in scoring points.
So enter Nash, the pass-first player who can keep defenses honest and hit a shot when open, but otherwise would be happy just piling up assists as his teammates put the ball in the bucket.
But before you get ready to head down to US Airways Center to protest, keep in mind that no move can happen until the lockout ends -- which could be a while -- and even then chances are the Suns won't be sending Nash to South Beach.
Because, even if Phoenix is just trying to shed salary, the chances of them pawning Nash off just for expiring contracts are about as good as the likelihood of Robin Lopez becoming the next Hakeem Olajuwon. Take one look at Miami's roster and you'll notice that outside of their big three there is really no one worth asking about.
So, while the Suns may ultimately decide to trade Nash at some point, don't expect him to join King James and the gang, even if he'd be a perfect fit there.
