Steve Nash will always be one of the greatest point guards the NBA has ever seen. He will forever be known for his noted for his playmaking abilities, ball-handling skills, and shooting.
Nash led the league in assists for five years and won the 2005 and 2010 NBA All-Star Skills Contests.

Over his 20-year career and playing for three teams, Nash was the NBA MVP in 2005 and 2006 and was named to an All-Star team eight times.
He was drafted by the Suns in 1996 and it didn’t work out the way Phoenix envisioned it would and he was traded to Dallas in 1998. There, Nash came to be the player we all know him as.

There was just two things missing from his resume: a gold medal (Nash is Canadian and never medaled on an Olympic squad) and an NBA championship.
One of those changed Monday night.
Nash began working as a player development consultant for Golden State in November 2015 after he retired. Warriors head coach Steve Kerr was the general manager in Phoenix from 2007-2010, while Nash was a member of the Suns.
Also getting a ring? Two-time fired Cavs coach Mike Brown, who also coached Nash in 2012 with the Lakers.
You don’t have to like the Warriors winning another ring, but you should at least feel good for Nash and Brown.
