I’m sure you watched it live, but just in case you wanted to experience the joy one more time we bring you the video of Steve Nash making his first appearance on The Tonight Show with Jay Leno. It’s just one of those perks of signing with the Lakers — he’s a two-time NBA MVP, one of the most recognized faces in the game, he’s made a string of successful YouTube videos, but it takes getting to the Lakers to end up on the Tonight Show. And you wonder why guys want to come play in Los Angeles.
It’s a fun interview, he’s just humble and funny and very Canadian. And with this video we throw in some Justin Timberlake drug jokes for free.
Be sure to watch the start of the second video, when Nash talks about getting booed by Mavericks fans. Great story.
