Plus he pouted his way off of a team a put them in a spot where they couldn't sell high. If he was Russian he would be a enigmatic, selfish, coach killer, but he isn't so he just needs better teammates.

In all seriousness I think most coach killer, enigmatic talk is nonsense. I just find the way storylines are manufactured to be amusing.
You have it backwards Nash kept his mouth shut and handled his request professionally, it was the gm that pouted and the loss of leverage is all on Howsen. It was Howsen that threw a tampertantrum in an interview where he states Nash asked for a trade. If anything that is what cost Columbus its leverage and they ended up accepting a worse deal because of it.

While I'm no Nash fan I dont blame him in the least for wanting out of that gong show. Not sure why you are being so hard on him, its not lime he jumped ship the first chance he got. He legitimatly tried to make it work there but eventually had enough of the organization floundering. I'm hoping that bringing in Davidson will turn things around for that market.
