carters negatives outweigh the positives. nash has only 1 negative, the contract, which we can all live with if he produces.
Vinny Prospal basically called out Nash's leadership and talked about how the team prepares like crap and stuff. so its not like Nash is picture perfect.

everytyhing you said about Carter applies to Nash as well. it applies to any player ever. it applied to Richards, Gaborik, etc.

Nash has 7 years left on his deal...thats not an insignificant term. its only a few years less than Carters for more than 50% extra cash per season. Their numbers are comparable.

Carter>Nash when you take the contract into consideration. Talent wise id say Nash is better...but its a no brainer to me.
