The rise to greatness of Steve Nash is as unlikely a story as ever told in the National Basketball Association. A hockey and soccer player as a kid in small town British Columbia, Steve was hardly a standout basketball player in his early teens. In his final year of high school, he had to beg NCAA recruiters to consider him for a scholarship. Only one didtiny Santa Clara University in California. After four years of tremendous play, Steve was drafted into the NBA by Phoenix, a dream come true for him. But his early years in the pro game hardly saw him develop into a superstar. It wasn't until he was traded to Dallas and then returned to Phoenix years later that he developed into the finest point guard of his era.
Steve became the first Canadian ever to be named MVP of the league, and one of a rare few who was named MVP two years in a row! From his humble beginnings to becoming the best player in the game, Steve Nash: Most Valuable Player tells the story of a true basketball legend.
