If Steve Nash wasn’t so damn good at passing a ball around with his hands, there’s little doubt that Nash could have tried his feet at soccer. He’s played it ever since he was young and he’s the co-owner of the Vancouver Whitecaps FC professional soccer team. Hell, he even chose the number 10 when he signed with the Lakers to pay homage to soccer legends like Zinedine Zidane.
And while he seems perfectly content to cash checks from the Lakers, Nash still found some time to play some soccer in New York City on Wednesday for charity. Every year, Nash holds his annual “The Steve Nash Foundation Showdown” and various NBA players showed up for this year’s event, including Mason Plumlee, Kyrie Irving and Dirk Nowitzki, who looked just as huge and out-of-place on a soccer field as one would expect.
Steve’s team ended up winning 11-7 but look who got the Jean Richard Watches MVP Award:
