With Dirk Nowitzki on the verge of a second Finals appearance and a shot at a title, I keep thinking about Steve Nash. It was Nowitzki and Nash in Dallas at the beginning of the last decade that were supposed to be contending for championships, before Mark Cuban let Nash leave and Nash became the MVP point guard we know today. If there are two players from the mid-00's NBA that showcase the disappointment of great players without rings, it's Dirk Nowitzki and Steve Nash.

Nash has become more to us over the past five years. For a long time he was the model of the pure point guard, even with his atrocious defensive liabilities due to his back condition. He was MVP-worthy in the years he won, even if others feel there were equally impressive performances in those years. But he's also become a statesman for the game, and his diverse cultural and business interests have made him into a celebrity without the papparazi or reality television shows like the featured players in Los Angeles. He's involved in fitness, charity, and film. Including a documentary being filmed about him. Here's the trailer:


 

We tend to idolize players who the game means everything to, who can't live with themselves in the light of a morning after a loss. But Nash is a different kind, similiar, ironically, to Tim Duncan and his Spurs, who have always kept perspective while being hyper-competitive. Nash may never win a title, but he'll still go down as one of the most interesting players to watch, and interesting personalities, to grace the NBA.

Steve Nash's documentary gets a trailer

So he made a film about himself? Wow this quite an accomplishment....lol what a narcissist!
This guy is the the most overatted player of all time. Since win does a player get an MVP award for playing globetrotter ball in the regular season then choking in the NBA Playoffs and never even sniffing the Finals.  All the short little sports writers got together and thought it would be neat to make a short white guy the MVP. And now this loser makes a film about himself? You should have played Hockey Nash because your career in the NBA has been nothing but a globetrotter circus act. This guy could even sniff Stockton's balls.
