Canada Steve Nash for Prime Minister of Canada? LOL

A mere week into the 2010 NBA campaign and the Phoenix Suns' season hopes have been annihilated for this year and many years to come. Superstar point guard Steve Nash has informed Suns management he's leaving the team permanently November 15 to pursue a political career in his native Canada.

PHOENIX -- Phoenix Suns superstar Steve Nash has not caught the political bug.

Nash and the Suns found it necessary to respond to a story that appeared on the Phoenix "New Times" Web site Wednesday, saying Nash is leaving the team Nov. 15 to pursue a political career in his native Canada. The "New Times" said Nash will enter the Victoria, British Columbia, mayor's race, with a long-term goal to become prime minister of Canada.

"I just heard about it tonight during the game. I don't know what to say about that. I mean obviously I'll be prime minister one day, but I wasn't going to do it until after I finish playing basketball," Nash joked in the Suns' dressing room at US Airways Arena after Phoenix lost to the San Antonio Spurs 112-110 Wednesday night.

Earlier, the Suns' office -- flooded with Twitter and Facebook messages from panicked fans -- issued a statement: "A humorous article has been published by the Phoenix New Times, joking that Steve Nash is retiring to enter Canadian politics. We want our fans to rest easy. THIS IS A HOAX!! Happily, Steve continues to be a member of our team."

In its tongue-in-cheek story by Barry Friedman, the "New Times" reported: "A week ago, Nash and his agent met with Suns officials to inform them of his plans. Like Nash himself, the meeting was relatively short. There was no hidden agenda. It wasn't a ploy for more money or a contract extension. It was a simple statement -- he was quitting basketball to enter Canadian politics."

Nash has been with the Suns since 2004 and twice has been named the National Basketball Association's Most Valuable Player. In 2006, ESPN named him as the ninth greatest point guard of all time.

Nash didn't seek a monumentally lame ESPN special to announce "The Decision." LeBron declared, "I am going to take my talents to South Beach."
Nash has gone him one better. He's taking his talents nearly to the North Pole.
Love it
