The Los Angelesation of Steve Nash



 

Meet Steve Nash, He used to play point guard for our Phoenix Suns. He was really good, even though he usually looked as if he had slept in his locker. I have always thought that the beloved two-time league MVP resembled Kelly Leak from "The Bad News Bears". Jackie Earl Hailey, who played the foul-mouthed ball player was not a handsome kid and grew up to be, not surprisingly, not a handsome adult. Poor Steve Nash unfortunately fell prey to the same heavy-handed hammer of God when his face was pasted to the crown of the 6-foot three, One hundred and seventy eight pound athletic machine blessed with the reflexes and musculature usually reserved for animals of prey.
Jackie Earle Haley - the 5'5", non-athletic version of Steve Nash.
 
However, since being traded to the Los Angeles Lakers, the long-time "glitziest franchise in sports", Nash has transformed himself from a frumpy, tousle-haired, quiet-spoken optimist to a GQ coverboy, worthy of the attentions of the Laker Girls. All of them.
 
Cover Boy.
 
Now, Nash looks more like Conan O'Brien with his trendy haircut and upswept pompadour.
 
The Red-Haired, funny Steve Nash.
 
What happened to our old Steve Nash? Worry not, sports fans - I'm certain he'll be back, as soon as he heals up. I'm sure he'll be the same old self-deprecating, likable fellow that we've all grown to know and love, just with a better tan and haircut. After all, live in Rome, do as the Romans do. We'll miss you, Stever. Just like we miss Kelly Leak.
