Who would've thought that the Canadian kid out of Santa Clara was going to turn into a first ballot Hall of Famer? He didn't get much burn in his first two seasons in Phoenix nor his first two in Dallas after the Suns traded him for Pat Garrity, Bubba Wells, and a 1999 1st round pick (Shawn Marion). By his third year with the Mavs, he turned into a legit starting point guard. Along with Dirk Nowitzki, Nash made the Mavs relevant again. But when free agency came around they didn't want to pay him and he bolted for the desert. That's when shit got real for the kid.
Under Mike D'Antoni's "seven seconds or less" offense, Nash flourished and turned into the player we see today. He doesn't play a lick of defense, but his passes are accurate, his jumpers are water, his stamina is unreal, and he doesn't miss free throws (all-time leader in free-throw percentage at .904). And is one of six players in the 50, 40, 90 club. Nash—when healthy—is the ultimate offensive threat.
