What Would You Think About Steve Nash As Our Veteran?

I've seen a really mixed bag from Blazer fans about Steve Nash. For some reason, I've seen actual hatred directed his way, (which for the life of me I can't understand), as well as immense respect.

Personally, Nash is one of my favorite veteran players. He's 34, (will be 35 by the end of this season), but the guy runs like he's 28 still.

So my question is this: Nash has everything but a ring, and he's been pretty outspoken about it being his final aspiration. Nash is a shorter term solution to the veteran problem, however, he is also, IMO, enough in the immediate term to push the Blazers into the finals. As in right now.

So lets say the Suns are going nowhere and Nash wants to go somewhere that he has a chance. KP performs his magic ritual once more and is able to convince pheonix to take Outlaw, Blake, Frye and two future first round picks. We'll have to deal the picks anyway for cap reasons, so not a huge hit there, (and I know that this is underpaying for Nash at the moment, but lets say the Suns go for it...)

How would you feel about Nash being that veteran presence, taking the Blazers over the hump to the finals over the next two years, all the while providing veteran insight for Bayless who is built very similarly. Nash, IMO, is one veteran who would be able to pusht eh Blazers into the finals but would not interfere with Roy's team leadership.

Would you go for Nash as our short term veteran, maybe even signing him to a two year extension after the 2009-2010 season?
