Steve Nash will ‘definitely consider’ winning a title with the New York Knicks

Steve Nash could become a champion in New York City.

Impending free agent point guard Steve Nash told ESPN earlier today he would “definitely” consider joining the New York Knicks and performing at Madison Square Garden this autumn.

“The Knicks are a great franchise and I live in New York City [in the summer],” said Nash, 38, a two-time Most Valuable Player award winner. “So I’d definitely consider them if they were interested.”

Prior to Nash’s comments, legendary Knicks point guard of yesteryear Walt Frazier urged the three-time All-NBA First Team selection to make a living in Gotham at a Samsungpromotional appearance.

“We need you to come to New York,” said Frazier, 67, a Hall of Famer and member of the NBA 50th Anniversary All-Time Team.

Amar’e Stoudemire, who flourished playing with Nash for six-seasons in Phoenix with the Suns, has long believed the south African-born Canadian would seriously contemplate New York as a permanent destination.

The Knicks should only pursue Steve Nash if they can first ink Jeremy Lin

Nash, 38, a two-time Most Valuable Player award winner, played with Stoudemire for six-seasons as a member of the Suns in Phoenix.
