hmm... didn't find any thread about him.
Tonight: 21 pts, 8 reb, 4 assist, +/- 32... looks good.
Was Beno Udrih guarding him?
Dragic with 32 points with 6/7 to 3, 4/6 to 2 and 6/8 from the foul line.
One of my favorite players, to be honest.
I'm very happy for him, he finally made some impact this season. I hope he will continue this way.
I remember last season when he still struggled how Nash took him aside and explained him something.
My thought was that he couldn't have get better situation and if he won't find himself at this team he wouldn't find at all. And he did....
I hope that Nash is not injured or something, but it seems from the statistic that Dragic played more then him and was better than him (also at the +/-).
I'm don't like the NBA but I have intention to watch Suns' playoff because of Nash... Is anybody follow this team and Dragic? His states looks really impressive.
Has been any itw with Dragic he was asked about Nash? If has, I would like to know what he said about Nash.
I just got an impression before Dragic gained confidence that Nash was teaching him a lot, calling him after mistakes and explaining him something, encouraging him....
Hey, i have been following the suns a lot this year also watched yesterdays game. It was the end of a back2back and Nash was playing with little energy because he was tired it seemed and did a bad job on the defensive end that's why Dragic played more then him.
There are plenty of articles with Dragic and in almost every single one there is a question of the impact that Nash is having and there are also a few where Nash talks about Dragic.
Gogi has really progressed unbelievably this season, the weakest aspect of his game which used to be 3pt shooting has really become one of his strong suits this year, his shot is visibly improved and looks very very smooth.
He has been scoring extremely well this season, and in limited minutes as well. But the past few months he has also started assisting very well and setting up team-mates. He is improving in great strides on a game to game basis.
His biggest weakness atm is his handles but if he improves that as he did his shot he could be the starting PG of the Suns (when Nash retires) for years to come.
If he progresses as he has been atm i see him averaging something like 18pts 8assists and 5rbs in his prime if not even better.
I'm pretty sure Nash wasn't injured. The game was apparently so out of hand that Gentry elected not to put his starters back in. That's why Dragic got more minutes.
Can you give some links to some of this articles/interviews? I don't care if it's at Slovenian...
I found this one: http://www.dnevnik.si/sport/kosarka/1042333179
well, he really the same even almost at the same words regarding Nash as at my question....
As somebody who follows some European who didn't get into the best situation at the NBA, when I saw Dragic on one had very unconfident(at the beginning) and at another hand seeing how everybody is patient with him and beyond all Nash taking care of him, I told my friend that if Goran won't succeed here he won't anywhere...
He really couldn't be more lucky being drafted by the suns and not being traded.

Here you have a chat with Dragic and the first question ofcourse is about playing with Nahs:
Here you go a few articles
Also edit to add, Dragic was benched by the Suns in his first season, but when Porter was fired Gentry took over and gave Dragic a fair chance and Dragic came through in the last 20 or so games, this year he is doing even better.
I believe more then Nash it has been Gentry who is to "blame" for Gogi's success and ofcourse Dragic himself for coming up big when big was expected of him.
I recalled that I made a mistake here and wasn't corrected. He wasn't drafted by the Suns!
(I recalled that I was glad about it... Because I hate the Spurs)
Kerr even said that if Dragic didn't have a contract with TAU they would have gone after him with the 15th pick!
Oh my Dragic!!!
