Steve Nash - the best athlete in the world

Amazing three-year run
I am proposing that Steve Nash is currently the best athlete in the world. Basketball is one of the most athletic sports in the world. And he is the two-time reigning MVP (Most Valuable Player). And there's a good chance he'll win for a third time this year. Winning the MVP as an undersized 6'3", 195-pound white guy is an amazing feat. I'd put it right up there with the best.

Not recruited out of high school
Born in South Africa and raised in soccer-loving family in Victoria, British Columbia, Steve was a solid high school basketball player, yet he received no attention from Division I colleges. By chance, unheralded Santa Clara University took a chance on him. The rest as they say, is history.

Watch for yourself tonight (4.24.07) as his Phoenix Suns take on the LA Lakers on TNT at 10:30 PM.
