Former Phoenix Suns great Steve Nash is finally an NBA champion

Twelve NBA seasons. Twelve playoff appearances. Four Western Conference Finals appearances.

For as much success as former Phoenix Suns point guard and two-time NBA MVP Steve Nash had as a player, he never had the chance to lift the Larry O'Brien Championship Trophy at the end of a season.

Well, on Monday, the 43-year-old Nash finally got himself an NBA championship. Why? Because Nash is a player development consultant for the world champion Golden State Warriors, a role he began in November 2015. Nash and Warriors coach Steve Kerr know each other well, as Kerr was the Suns' general manager from 2007-10.


This guy deserves everything! Unbelievable person who's been through a lot of tough days. To good health my friend.
