Now that the New York Knicks have officially been knocked out of the NBA playoffs, fans are looking for ways to improve their team for next season.
One of the biggest names they’re hoping to add this offseason is veteran point guard Steve Nash.
Even though the 38-year-old is obviously past his prime, the leadership he would bring to the Knicks locker room by far makes up for his eroding skills. New York’s problem isn’t their talent pool, it’s their ability to play together as a unit. That’s where Nash would help most.
If Steve Nash joined the #Knicks, it would be great. They kind of need a veteran leader…

Steve Nash better be in a Knicks uniform next year.

Steve Nash is the perfect fix for what ails the #Knicks. He'd get Melo's respect, Amare wants to play with him, and Lin can anchor 2nd unit.

Bring Steve Nash to the #Knicks, and let Lin learn from him.

On paper Steve Nash may seem like a great fit for the Knicks, but a potential deal would have some skeptics. Just how well would he fit in with their current scheme and could he get along with Carmelo Anthony?
#Knicks fans drooling over Steve Nash already. I'm extremely skeptical. Mike Woodson's offense doesn't exactly emphasize the pick and roll.

One thing is for sure. We’re in-store for a very entertaining NBA offseason!
