Confessions Of A Laker Fan: Steve Nash Hasn’t Gotten Enough Credit

It happened in the most ironic way possible.

Anything that would matter had already been said or done and the Phoenix Suns’ season ended prior the NBA Finals, as it usually does.

After all of his big talk, Amar'e Stoudemire hurried off to his team’s locker room, Kobe Bryant was celebrating on the same court where he had been dealt such pesky frustration only three years ago, the majority of the Suns team congratulated the Lakers, which Steve Nash had already done – and Nash was in the home team’s locker room, crying.

Here was Steve Nash was at his lowest moment. He had been driven to tears, his team had been broken and finally beaten, but only after witnessing that vulnerable moment did I finally get it.

I’d been disrespecting one of the greatest point guards to ever play the game.
