Steve Nash Post-Game Comment

April, 10, 2006
I watched much of the Lakers-Suns game on Friday night. Kobe Bryant scored 51, and the Suns won convincingly.

In the weird individual-obsessed media environment, somehow the sideline reporter (I forget her name) was more impressed with Bryant's 51 than the Suns' actual victory. She asked Nash a question along the lines of "given that you might be facing the Lakers in the playoffs, what kind of message does Kobe Bryant's 51 points send?"

The more I think about it, the more I think Nash's response was a classic. He paused, looked maybe just a tad disappointed, and said (as I recall):
"Doesn't he always do that?"
As in, who cares? If Phoenix wins by eleven without Amare Stoudemire, does it matter one iota how many Kobe Bryant scores?
