I happened to be one of the lucky participants and all I can say is that Steve Nash is one of the nicest guys I have ever met. This guy is one of the most exciting players to watch on the basketball court and his grace, speed and dynamics were also present on this pickup game. It was nice to see a real pro among us, mortals, sharing a nice friendly game of soccer. He is a true and great Ambassador to Basketball, Soccer and sportsmen everywhere.

That's awesome! I think it's great to see such a high profile athlete so accessible.

Man I saw Steve play and it was amazing.. we hit it some balls back and forth.. i was so happy sharing such a close experience with him.. best of all.. he showed me how to head it.. i was so good at head that all the players wanted me to do it.. sometimes more than once.. it was so fun, except when the balls would hit me in the face,, ouch! im sure some of the players did that on purpose.. but its all good.. anyways
thanks steve nash for everything!

I'm going to pretend that you were *not* talking about oral sex there. Jesus.

Being a Phoenix resident, I feel very fortunate to have Nash as a Sun. I hope more people try to emulate him as an athlete - our professional sports need people like that.

lol, I can't BELIEVE Nash chooses to live in NYC in the offseason. NYC in the summer is really nasty. I live in New York and I was just thinking I wish I could live somewhere ELSE during the summer and just live here during the OTHER 9 months...

would've been awesome to see. there's TWO fields set aside for soccer a few blocks away from where they tried to play and they're in a public park -- riverside park at 72nd street. enter the park on 72nd, going west go through the overpass tunnel and down the stairs. one field is on your right as you go down the stairs, surrounded by a track with stone seats. another field (with professional size goals) is just a few feet away to the left just past the little league baseball field along the water...
