Despite all of his significant and historic basketball accomplishments, including back-to-back NBA MVP awards, Steve Nash has always found a way to distinguish himself away from the game.
In 2007, Nash received The Order of Canada, the country’s highest civilian honor, in recognition of his charitable efforts. He became the first NBA player to light the Olympic cauldron when the 2010 Winter Games were held in Vancouver.
He has also ventured into filmmaking and the business world, and an upcoming documentary, titled NASH looks at why he has become nearly as big of an international icon outside of basketball.
The film includes interviews with Barack Obama, Owen Wilson, Kobe Bryant, David Beckham, Snoop Dogg, Dirk Nowitzki, Tony Parker, Yao Ming, Baron Davis, Ron Howard, Doug Ellin, David Blaine, Dick Davey (his college coach at Santa Clara), Bryan Colangelo and David Stern. It is scheduled for U.S. release on Dec. 4. Here's a sneak peek:
