    BACKGROUND

    Canadian-born Steve Nash after a successful career at Santa Clara University was a first-round draft pick of the Phoenix Suns in 1996. Subsequently found his basketball home in Dallas with co-horts Dirk Nowitzki and Michael Finely to form another Dallas "Big Three." Plays a classic point guard and is known to drive to the basket with reckless abandon where he can make the layup or deftly pass to a teammate for an easier basket. Has developed a consistent outside shot which makes him even harder to defend.
