I got a chuckle out of Steve Ovadia's assertion that Steve Nash has benefited from the NHL lockout more than anyone:
In fact, I have a controversial suggestion: Steve Nash, a Canadian, is the NBA's MVP because he had no hockey to distract him. Not only that, millions of Canadians, who might have otherwise been watching hockey, could instead spend this season sending him good, positive thoughts. Steve Nash's success is an almost direct result of the lockout. And of Phoenix's fast-paced offense which Nash was born to run.No one in the MSM¹ is going to write gold like that. And, yes, Steve Nash triumphs over evil.
