It seems like a match made in marketing heaven.
Steve Nash may be the most popular player without an NBA title, now that his friend Dirk Nowitzki hoisted the O’Brien Trophy with the Dallas Mavericks last season.
Nash’s window for a championship with the Phoenix Suns is closing rapidly, particularly as tightwad owner Robert Sarver allows the once-competitive franchise to descend into mediocrity.
It wouldn’t be a surprise to see Nash ask for a trade as soon as the lockout ends as he searches for his elusive championship.
And if he’s really interested in taking that route, at least one NBA superstar who has a similar lack of a title is very, very interested in hooking up with him.
LeBron James took to Twitter today to mention in a bid for their first championship together.
