IMO turning the raptors into a respectable team and becoming a national hero is a more epic accomplishment than "only wanting to play for a championship contender, that was already a contender before he got there." I guess some people don't care about legacys and hometown pride.
This is most likely his last contract, he can either attempt to go out with fighting for a championship, or he can rot away with the Raptors. Nash is already one of the most popular Canadian athletes, only thing that would really increase it is if he won a championship with Toronto, which we know wouldn't happen.

I can't believe there are some people that are upset with Nash going to the Lakers over the Raptors.
