What Steve Nash is doing this season at the age of 35 is as great as anything we’ve seen from an individual player in the history of Arizona sports. The numbers are eye-popping but the brilliance on the court is almost beyond description.
I remember watching Randy Johnson win four straight Cy Young Awards throwing 100 mile per hour fast balls and wicked sliders in his final few great years before his career started winding down. It was an opportunity to see a special kind of mastery in person and we are seeing that again this season from Nash. This season’s just getting started and he may very well play at this level for another 3 or 5 years but why wait to celebrate?
Why wait to honor his mastery until after it’s gone?
Why not capture it’s immediate glory in true Internet fashion – before the story is complete?
To honor, respect and generate attention for this once-in-life-time opportunity we are pleased to announce “Steve Nash Internet Day” to be held on December 9th and hosted right here (and no, it is not a coincidence that “Steve Nash Day” comes right after the Suns play the Mavs).
We did something similar to this two years ago with Kobe, out of a grudging respect. Now we get to actually enjoy a day about a player who doesn’t make us afraid/nauseous. Fun!
