Magic Johnson, the greatest point guard of all time, was wowed by Steve Nash's first-half performance in Game 2 against the Spurs, and had this to say during TNT's halftime show:
"This is the difference between Dirk and Steve Nash. And this is why Steve Nash has won the MVP the last two years. At eight minutes to go, it was a one-point game. This man took the game over, had seven points, six assists in the last eight minutes to take it to a seven-point lead for the Phoenix Suns. ...
That’s what a leader does, that’s what an MVP is supposed to do. Dirk, learn from your best friend because he’s taken this game over, something you didn’t do in the last series."
Later, Charles Barkley had this gem about the Nets: "New Jersey needs a halfcourt offense like a fat man need cake."
