Ok, so neither did Magic.
magic had the necessary volume to win 5 championships. Nash didn’t have the necessary volume to win anything.
Nash upped his volume and led some of the greatest playoff offenses of all time. It was the Suns defense that was weak, which has very little to do with Nash. Just like the Lakers defense had very little to do with Magic. And it was the fact that the Lakers were good at both offense and defense that got them 5 championships, not Magic having more volume than Nash (which isn't even true, since Nash actually averaged more PPG in his 05 playoff run than Magic did in any of his championship runs).
And this argument doesn't help Iverson in any way. His team made it to the Finals once and got destroyed. And then never sniffed any significant team success aside from that. Meanwhile, Nash's Suns were in the playoffs every year from 05-10, and made it to the Conference Finals 3 times. Nash had more consistent success than Iverson ever did, his teams weren't a one hit wonder like the 01 Sixers (who made the Finals from an awful conference).
And another thing, Chauncey Billups was clearly better than Iverson, as he proved in 09 when he replaced Iverson on the Nuggets and helped lead them to far greater success than Iverson was able to the year before. If Iverson isn't as good as Billups, in what universe is he even comparable to Nash?
So Billups is gonna take that 01 team to the finals huh?
