Steve Nash may be the greatest athlete this country has ever produced. He’ll tell you though it didn’t come down to his skill, his storied career came down to his will.
He wasn’t handed major scholarships by the most notable schools, but little Santa Clara near San Jose, CA gave him a chance. He then took his opportunity and ran with it all the way to NCAA March Madness tournament berths and eventually the NBA.
Taken in the first round by the Phoenix Suns, Nash bounced around early on his career and thought he’d found his home in Dallas until the team decided to go in a different direction. Nash, at 30 and with some injury baggage on his resume, decided to train even harder and teach himself a different side of the game.
What happened next resulted in two NBA MVP trophies, court time with Kobe Bryant, and an induction into the Basketball Hall of Fame.
He’s humble. He’s kind. He’s a legend. He’s Canadian. This is a story you need to know.
The goal of this show is to help young athletes and sports fans keep mentally and physically primed to help grow their careers to the highest level. We thank Steve Nash for his time and can’t wait to continue diving into our all-star lineup for our next episode.
