I heard today that Mark Cuban is trying to protect his investments by preventing Steve Nash, Michael Finley, Dirk Nowitzki, and Shawn Bradley from playing because of insurance reasons. Nash made some good comments today I thought. He said that it would be tough not to play but that Mark is his boss and has done an awful lot for him. I think that only begs the question about Canadians playing basketball and what Steve Nash has done for them. Will that have an effect on what people think of him. Personally I hope he plays because he does so with more passion than probably any other NBA'er while playing for his country and it is fun to watch.
