I think there's a contradiction in here.

Part of the issue with your presumption here is that Nash indeed didn't bother with defense until Hitch came here and taught him how. When Arniel came in, he, for some insane reason, decided to stop using Nash in defensive situations so as to "reduce his minutes" or something like that. It was crazy and it was stupid and it drove the entire fanbase quite mad.

Remember - when you're a hockey fan, it's not "reckless driving", it's "good forechecking".
