TWO-TIME NBA MVP STEVE NASH ANNOUNCES RETIREMENT

March 23, 2015

Steve Nash announced Saturday (March 21st) that he’s retiring after a 19-year NBA career in which he won the MVP twice, racked up the third-most career assists, and was the most accurate free throw shooter in league history.

The 41-year-old future Hall of Famer, who despite being one of the greatest point guards ever never won an NBA title, made the news public in a letter on The Players’ Tribune website.

He wrote, “The greatest gift has been to be completely immersed in my passion and striving for something I loved so much — visualizing a ladder, climbing up to my heroes.”

Nash, who finishes out his career with the Los Angeles Lakers, was hampered by health issues for the past two seasons, and it was announced last October that he would miss this entire season.
