You mentioned some international players, sort of praised the fundamentals of international players. What are your impressions of rookie Ben Simmons. The other is a new Hall of Famer, Steve Nash. Your impressions of those two guys. I think Ben played with a really great tempo. The time he’s had to watch the game has helped slow down the game for him. He’s had a chance to really observe the NBA game and be around it, pick it apart. Now that he’s playing, I think the game’s in slow motion for him, which is different than most rookies. He’s had a chance to view it a lot. From a game perspective, his size gives him a clear advantage, his speed. He also knows how to use it. He knows his spots on the floor, he knows his strengths and weaknesses. He does a great job getting there.
NBA insiders call Nash “Two Time” for his MVP awards; there isn’t a person who’s been in his circle with the sport in Canada who wouldn’t call him “Big Time.” He was one of the guys, but he made sure his guys were taken care of. He doled out spending money for a relatively broke group of Olympians in 2000 so they could souvenir shop, live well and take care of their families, but made certain no one found about it. “He would do all kinds of things behind the scenes and he never wanted it to get out,” Hamilton said. “You appreciate those things. He didn’t have to do it. He understands what he’s doing is not going to change everybody’s world, but it’s just a way of him saying, ‘I care, this is what I feel,’ and he did it for everybody. It’s unique because you don’t have to do that.”
