This story is being passed around Twitter very quickly
A mere week into the 2010 NBA campaign and the Phoenix Suns' season hopes have been annihilated for this year and many years to come. Superstar point guard Steve Nash has informed Suns management he's leaving the team permanently November 15 to pursue a political career in his native Canada.
Nash's long-term goal is eventually to become prime minister of Canada, the country's highest position. To that end, he's entering the Victoria, British Columbia, mayor's race and must almost immediately establish residency to run for office.
The story doesn't seem to be one of those "Onion" type pieces of parody. So either this reporter is completely wrong… or Nash is about to announce his retirement.
So if Steve does quit… I wish him well. He's one of the best PG's I've ever seen. Also, may I suggest Steve's first campaign ad:
Yep. That guy wants to be Prime Minister. Good luck, Canada.
Oh well… any excuse to use that Nash vid is fine with me.
