(Backstory: Amid rumors that the two-time MVP and much beloved Sun won't be returning to Phoenix next season, the fans—especially my dad, a diehard Suns fan—have been disappointed, to say the least. With 5 minutes left in the Suns' last game of the season [no playoffs for them...sad], Steve Nash wasn't on the court. My dad stood up and started chanting, "We want Steve!" Soon, all 18,000+ fans were on their feet chanting for Nash, and eventually, he was put back in the game to uproarious applause. Articles surfaced covering the possible goodbye. Steve Nash commented,
"It was obviously amazing to get that type of reception and support," Nash said. "It's very special because it's not something I asked for or imagined. To get that kind of reaction means it's authentic, the relationship I thought we had. It really feels special. The fans have been phenomenal and it's meant a lot to me to play in a city like this as long as I have and to feel important to the fans and community. I just feel like a very lucky guy."I'm fairly sure this event pleased my dad and evoked more pride in him than my college graduation, grad school degree, future wedding, or impending children did/will.
