Biography:

It is amazing to watch the show Steve Nash puts on when he plays basketball. His flashy handles and almost impossible to defend passes have placed Steve in a position to enter the hall of fame shortly after retirement. He has looked up to players like Michael Jordan and John Stockton and felt it was only right to pay his respects to them by narrating “The84Draft”; a story about the 1984 NBA draft class which will air in June of 2014.

Sports speaker Steve Nash was able to use his soccer skills to be successful in basketball. With the amount of passing necessary in soccer it makes sense for this to be Steve’s specialty when flying down the court on a fast break with a highflyer to his left and a strong three-point threat to his right. Playing in Canada did not give Steve the same exposure as American players even though he was a very good. Finally the coach from Santa Clara University spotted Steve and jumped at the chance to get him to commit. Steve accepted the offer and throughout his career would take SCU to three NCAA tournament appearances. Steve was selected 15th overall by the Phoenix Suns in the 1996 draft, a draft class that also featured Kobe Bryant, Allen Iverson, Ray Allen, and Derek Fisher. By working out with perennial passing guards Jason Kidd and Gary Payton after his first few years in the league Steve was able to find “his game” and he ran with it. After being drafted by the Suns, Steve has played for the Mavericks and the Los Angeles Lakers where he is currently a starter. Steve is a two time MVP, eight-time NBA All-Star, and three time All-NBA player.

In 2006 Steve was named by Time Magazine as one of the top 100 most influential people in the world. This was due mainly in part to the Steve Nash Foundation which was registered to encourage healthy living through children. Steve has endorsement deals with Vitamin Water, and MDG computers. Steve has a very long lasting relationship with Nike and has been sponsored by them since entering the league. This relationship has given him the opportunity to write and produce a commercial for Nike about his training philosophy called “Training Day”.
