A Short Take on Nash's Play,

Nash has this move, where he dribbles the ball to the wing or corner, hands it off then does a sort of jump-screen into the off defender.  It's the exact definition of a moving screen, but I don't blame any refs for not calling it for two reasons: one, Nash is so darn light and purse-carrying-friendly that it harms no one, and secondly that it's just good basketball: if you can take advantage of your bodily position and not get called for it, so be it. 

 

My only desire in bringing this up to you my fellow PTRockers, is that I'd like to see Dejuan Blair learn the exact same move.  It's a sort of hand-off/hop-skip/moving screen where you allow your body to fly into oncoming traffic.  I would like to see the discarded limbs and future dreams scattered about the hardwood floor after the play, and the sheer amount of LOLing.  And in an ideal world, the play would be a no call due to the consistency of the league officials, and the fact Nash has been doing it since before I had biologically created people.
