I think that'd be the first time it was presented that way.

Keep in mind, though, that Nash said as far back as November 2011 (in an interview) that he wouldn't let an NTC stand in the way. If the trade request wasn't made until January 2012, then the time frames don't match up.

This sounds like revisionism to me. I'll take a wild stab at which reporter (not columnist) said it.
