Steve Nash’s time in Los Angeles wasn’t what we expected, but he has made a huge impact on the NBA. Being drafted out of the University of Santa Clara by the Phoenix Suns in 1996, there weren’t exactly a lot of expectations for the young Canadian. Nash started off his career coming off the bench, but 19 years and two Most Valuable Player awards later, it is safe to say that Nash is a future Hall of Famer.
With Nash out for the entire season, the NBA took to Twitter to wish one of the best point guards in NBA history well:
Sorry to hear The news my man @SteveNash
