Steve Nash

Steve Nash is just the second Canadian-born player to be enshrined in the Naismith Memorial Basketball Hall of Fame. After being overlooked by many top-tier Division I schools, Nash attended Santa Clara University, where he was a two-time WCC Player of the Year. Nash was drafted 15th overall in 1996 and spent his first two seasons with the Phoenix Suns before establishing himself as a top point guard with the Dallas Mavericks. Teamed with Dirk Nowitzki, Nash helped the Mavs get back into the playoff picture after over a decades long drought. Nash returned to Phoenix in 2004 revitalizing the franchise with his up-tempo style of play and terrific passing, leading the Suns to the league’s best record before earning back-to-back NBA MVP awards in 2005 and 2006. As a four-time member of the illustrious 50-40-90 club, Nash defined what it meant to be an efficient player while inspiring kids in his native Canada with the game of basketball.
