Steve Nash

Even in his prime, Steve Nash was never the quickest, most athletic player. Still, he was good enough to be named NBA MVP in back-to-back seasons in 2005 and 2006. It takes a certain intelligence factor to be the kind of savvy point guard Nash was. We’d love to see him get a chance to direct traffic from the bench. At 40-years-old, the time for Nash to end one chapter and begin another is now. Facts. (Photo: Jeff Gross/Getty Images)
