You guys are drunk. Nash is in a whole other class compared to Rubio.

Nash won MVP twice and Rubio's never been to an All-Star game or even been close to an All-NBA team.

Yeah. Some rolls need to be slowed here.

Rubio has more luxurious hair than Nash. He’s a walking L‘Oreal commercial.

That's fair. I missed that part of the discussion. I guess I'm just very protective of his legacy. :lol:

As you should be. It is pretty amazing how different Nash became from a stats perspective when he came back to Phoenix.

If you look at his 6 years in Dallas versus his first 6 years back at the Suns:

+10 games per season
+ 4% from the field
+ 3% from 3
+ 5% on 2s
+ 5% eFG
+3.7 assist per game

All at the cost of just 1 more TO/game.

Those are the differences between him being a really good player and him being in the hall of fame.
