Phoenix Suns star Steve Nash revealed in an interview with ESPN's Stephen A. Smith that he was not interested in joining the Lakers:

"The truth is I'm a bit old school. For me, it would be hard to put on a Lakers jersey. That's just the way it is," Nash said. "You play against them so many times in the playoffs, and I just use them as an example, and I have the utmost respect for them and their organization.

"I kind of have that tendency (to try to beat the best teams), so it is strange, but as a free agent you're free to go where you want, so I'd have to consider everything regardless of the past or the future."


The Suns and Lakers have gone through many battles in the past several years. Both teams were still big rivals until Amar'e Stoudamire left. This is no longer a reality though. The Suns are not an elite team at this time, and it is the reason why Nash is trying to leave. 
Steve Nash said that the money was not the main thing for him, but I doubt he will go to a team that won't be able to offer him a lucrative deal. The only problem is that he would come down as one of the MVP's that never won a title.
The Raptors are the team that seems to have the best shot at acquiring him. It makes great sense, considering Nash is Canadian.
