They both are great at what they do. One has two MVP awards that will forever be disputed.
The other none and should at least have one.
One probably has never been booed, the other the second he stepped into the league.
Both are charitable and do all they can for the kids.
One is loved by the press…the other doesn’t give them shit.
Both have suffered injuries off and on throughout their careers.
One is put on a pedestal for what he can’t do, the other slammed for not doing what he can do.
One is great at the pick and roll in the middle of the floor, the other historic at ball security.
One gets props for not having teammates and winning, the other does not.
Both have game weaknesses.
I’ve been on record saying there’s no way Steve Nash should have two MVP awards in a league that has both Kobe Bryant and LeBron James (sentiment is Shaq should have won his first when he left L.A. for Miami).
Both are great dudes and I dig speaking to either one of them.
One is supposedly a sure fire Hall of Famer, while the other seems to be fighting for Canton despite stats that support such an honor.
One is flashy on the floor, the other chill even in the worst times.
The Black quarterback…the White point guard…
