recently won this years NBA Most Valuable Player award
a distinction that he totally earned despite the suprise that was his impressive season.
nash led the league in assists (861, nearly 200 more than the second place Stephon Marbury),
dropped a not-too-shabby 1165 points in the supercompetitive west,
and was the ringleader of the phoenix team that will probably win it all.
basically he took a lottery team and made them the best club in basketball in the old school showtime laker style while no-looking his way into the playoffs
and once and for all proved that dallas mavericks owner mark cuban really isnt any smarter than any other fantasy hoops gm who trades people to quickly and forgets how important defense is.
although jason terry is doing pretty well for dallas during the playoffs, the mavs could have used nash during the season and he will be the difference during this series versus his old team.
the other day, the bastardly made an excellent point of illustrating how rare its been for white men to achieve the nba mvp award.
dirk, peja, and manu better help nash savor this award because according to the list below, white men getting the nba mvp is getting harder to find than a blog sans ads.
