The Suns’ media relations staff made it very clear that Lance Blanks was not going to discuss the part of the NBA calendar year that occurs in July on Monday, but that hasn’t stopped...

Have the Spurs run out of mojo? I was sure that Tim Duncan was going to hit a game-tying three at the end of Game 5 and crush the souls of generations of Thunder fans. But I guess that was just me projecting my nightmares.

And yet, I am totally prepared, if not expecting, the Spurs to win the next two games and crush the souls of generations of Thunder fans. That's what they do....or maybe it's just what they did.

What he said.

(SB Nation Arizona, Avinash Kunnath) There appear to be multiple options for Steve Nash this offseason. He could return to the Phoenix Suns and agree to what probably will be his final major NBA deal. He could leave of his own accord as a free agent and try to branch out somewhere else. Or he

Alex Kennedy of HoopsWorld has possibly learned of the two likeliest options Nash would take this offseason. Both of them involving signing with the Suns, but only one keeps him in Phoenix next season. The first option would be a multi-year deal, reportedly around $10 million a year.

There is still a very real shot that Nash, who has thrived in Phoenix's environment, chooses to stay; however the Suns will have to make some serious roster improvements to be the front runner.

Nash's connection with the support and medical staff in Phoenix is a real trump card, as Nash does have spondylolisthesis in his back, and that will factor into his decision. Nash has remained fairly healthy in Phoenix and has played far longer than most thought he would as a result. Nash routinely credits the Phoenix training staff as a key reason why.

Another possibility? A sign-and-trade.

Word has is Nash and the Suns have agreed that if Nash is leaving Phoenix that the franchise would help facilitate a sign and trade deal to insure Steve gets the maximum dollars for his services and the Suns get something in return for him. Meaning all bets are off on where Nash lands, as cap space and exception money won't be a huge factor.

It'd make sense for Nash to stay. Phoenix has done a lot for him, particularly in extending his career with their renowned medical staff. And it'd make sense for Nash to agree to a sign-and-trade to ensure his franchise gets something out of his depature while he also gets a solid deal on his side. It'll be one of those deals where both sides should mutually benefit from the arrangement.

Game on.

Eastern Conference Finals Game 5: Boston Celtics at Miami Heat at 8:30 p.m. ET / 5:30 p.m. PT on ESPN

The Celtics will face the Heat on the road and with Chris Bosh back in the lineup. They will try and slow down Miami while pushing the ball to get some easy buckets for Rajon Rondo in transition. LeBron James and Dwyane Wade remain the keys for Miami. As always, if those two both play great, the Heat win.
