Phoenix Suns point guard Steve Nash, one of the top free agents this summer, made ripples around the league in a radio interview yesterday, saying he would consider joining the Miami Heat.  "I'm not coming back to the Suns if there isn't improvement,"  Nash told "The Dan Patrick Show".  Nash explained he's expecting the Suns to try to make those improvements, but that he's looking forward to becoming a free agent and deciding where to continue his career.  It shouldn't surprise anyone the 38-year-old point guard without a world championship might be enticed by the idea of joining a contender that has what many consider a relative hole at the point guard slot.  The 38-year-old Nash is averaging twelve points and eleven assists.

Nike won a temporary restraining order Wednesday night that stops Reebok from selling or manufacturing any Tim Tebow-related products.  Judge P. Kevin Castel of the Southern District of New York issued the order, saying a preliminary injunction hearing will take place April 4 in New York City.  Nike went to court on Wednesday claiming Reebok International Ltd. used Tebow's name on Jets-related apparel without permission after it was announced last week that Tebow had been traded from the Denver Broncos to the Jets.  The Tebow trade occurred just before Nike officially replaces Reebok on Sunday as the supplier of NFL team uniforms.  The judge banned Reebok from selling any apparel with the name Tebow on it unless it was made by March 1 and was Broncos-related.  The lawsuit, which seeks unspecified damages, claims Reebok misappropriated publicity rights, interfered with business relationships and unjustly enriched itself because it failed to get Tebow's permission before launching the new products.
