Thank You Steve Nash

Steve Nash is far and away the greatest basketball player this country has ever produced. This is Nash country.

On December 5, 2007, I took my kids to see the Toronto Raptors take on Steve Nash and the Phoenix Suns. At the time I thought it was important that they see the greatest Canadian basketball player who ever lived. Little did I know he wouldn't retire until today, almost eight years later.

Steve Nash

Thank you Steve Nash for an outstanding 19-year NBA career in which you twice won MVP honours, tallied the third-most assists in league history and assured your place in the Hall of Fame as one of the greatest point guards ever to play the game.

Thanks to you, Canadians are invading the NBA in droves as we all aspire to play like Steve.

No doubt a great player and future HOFer but it still bugs me the way he refused so many times to play for his country, especially considering how much his country needed him.

Yes, I know he was great at the 2000 Olympics but after that he had no time for Canada. All of this despite the fact his best friend Dirk Nowitski continued to play for his country into his 30s. Oh and even LeBron and Kobe played for their countries yet Nash obviously felt he was too good to play with a bunch of no-name Canadians.

He wanted to play for my Suns though. He had every right to do that. Anyway, Steve Nash was a real basketball superstar, really great.
