St Nash on Nash St
Is this not the most fitting photo opp for such an occasion? Nash poses for photos after his introductory news conference outside the Lakers El Segundo practice facility on none other than Nash Street?
I have to admit, Steve Nash looks really weird in a Lakers uniform. Somewhat Frankie Muniz-ish.
So why #10? Reportedly being an avid soccer fan may have led Nash’s decision to choose No. 10. That number is usually worn by the best player on the international level like big-name players Lionel Messi, Wayne Rooney, Zinedine Zidane, David Beckham, Diego Maradona and Ronaldinho.
I personally believe Nash is paying homage to his former team by showing the total number of seasons he was in Phoenix: 96-97, 97-98, 04-05, 05-06, 06-07, 07-08, 08-09, 09-10, 10-11, 11-12.
