Doc on Nash: ‘He’s Brady and Manning’

Posted By Mike Petraglia On November 6, 2009 @ 8:26 pm In General | No Comments

Doc Rivers [1] can appreciate point guard greatness when he sees it.

He can also draw analogies unlike any other NBA coach. Rivers, a huge NFL fan, sees Steve Nash [2] and he sees not just a point guard but a supremely gifted signal-caller on the floor.

Nash, a spry 35, is off to another other-worldly start for the Suns. He entered Friday’s game on the parquet averaging 19.6 points, 10.8 assists and three rebounds per contest.

“That’s who he is,” Rivers said. “He’s a great quarterback. He’s [Tom] Brady [3] and [Peyton] Manning [4] and all those guys combined at times, it looks like. He can shoot, he can pass. He does a lot for their team. And they have some great players around him.”
