Suns vs Blazers: You've Gotta See This

Wishing Steve all the best in his retirement, remembering his time in Phoenix, and previewing the big game tonight between the Suns and Blazers. I’ll keep today’s opening monologue brief. A lot of characters have been dedicated to Steve Nash, the greatest Phoenix Sun of all time and there is nothing I could say to honor his memory much further. I became a basketball fan about a year before Steve Nash came to Phoenix. I was in fifth grade and I will always remember the day I decided to start watching Phoenix Suns basketball. I wanted to tell you about it. I was sitting at home on a...

Steve Nash and the Journey of Fandom

Ten years ago, Steve Nash introduced me to the NBA. Two days ago, he retired. My journey as a fan is a small part of his brilliant legacy. 2005 was an important year during my adolescence. I started high school, struggled to understand what a "Hollaback Girl" was, and SNAPE KILLED DUMBLEDORE. But I will always remember 2005 as the year I found one of my life's greatest adorations—basketball. And I'll remember it for the man who introduced me to it—the improbably astonishing Steve Nash. On the evening of Wednesday, May 18, 2005, I happened upon an NBA game on my television, and it would...

Reminiscing about Steve Nash's final game

Steve Nash's final moments as a basketball player were long ago. The final minutes of Steve Nash's hall of fame career aren't what you'd expect from a legendary floor general. He didn't go out on top, it wasn't a perfect moment like Derek Jeter's goodbye, and few people even witnessed it. A quiet night in Ontario, California on October 12 made for the backdrop of Nash's goodbye to basketball. Preseason basketball rarely draws any attention, but Lakers fans were more tuned in with Kobe Bryant making his return and Julius Randle making his debut. If you dug deep enough through the headlines...
