A basketball court in East Vancouver has been given a fresh coat of paint and a new name.

It’s now the coolest place to play ball in the entire city.

The Nash Family Court was unveiled on the PNE grounds in Vancouver on Saturday, in honour of Steve Nash. The Victoria native was recently inducted into the Basketball Hall of Fame.

Three-hundred gallons of paint was used in the completion of the court, which displays a number of his accomplishments – from his back-to-back NBA MVP awards to being a father of four – on the sidelines.

The names of his four children are also painted on the court.

The court is located next to the Hastings Skatepark, off Renfrew Street. It was unveiled as part of the NBA Canada Series, which includes an exhibition game between the Toronto Raptors and Portland Trailblazers at Rogers Arena.
