Nash to sit out again

Steve Nash, star point guard of the Phoenix Suns will not play in tonight's game against Detroit. The pint sized guard, by NBA standards anyways, has averaged 15.3 points and 10.9 assists per game thus far, and has proven to be an integral piece of the Suns attack.

Most baketball observers have known of Nash's talent, yet he has glided under the radar for most of his NBA career. So far this season Nash ranks:

Ranks #1 in the NBA in Assists Per Game(10.9)
Ranks #1 in the NBA in Assists(402.0)
Ranks #3 in the NBA in Free-Throw Percentage(0.91)
Ranks #6 in the NBA in Double-doubles(21.0)
Ranks #1 in the NBA in Assists Per 48 Minutes(15.4)

He's finally getting the attention that he deserves. I believe that had the Vancouver Grizzlies drafted Nash, the Grizzlies would still be located in Canada. Can anyone say Nash for MVP?
