Steve Nash has been voted the NBA's most valuable player for 2005.
Steve is not only the first Canadian raised (he was born in South Africa) player to win the award but he is one of the few true team players to win the award the last several years.
I've always enjoyed watching basketball but over the last couple of years I've drifted away from the professional game and have spent more time watching college ball. I simply don't find the professional game very interesting due to the lack of team play and the focus on pure athletics. Steve brings the team focus back to the game and he is a joy to watch.
Congrats to Steve and to the NBA for making a smart choice.
