Steve Nash has had an NBA career that will eventually land him in the Hall of Fame. He’s earned two league MVPs, led the league in assists five times, and will very possibly end up as the all-time leader in free throw percentage before his career is all said and done.
But there’s always been much more to Nash than basketball. And that’s what some filmmakers hope to share, provided they’re able to raise the funds to finish their project.
A Kickstarter campaign is asking for donations so that the filmmakers can complete their documentary on Nash, which features actors, other professional players, and even President Obama himself discussing the point guard’s impact to the game of basketball.
The filmmakers have no interest in having Nash foot the bill, as it calls into question the credibility of the project. But it’s not like there’s a hit job to be done where Nash is concerned. He’s always treated everyone he’s dealt with with the utmost respect and professional courtesy, and has gone out of his way on multiple occasions to accommodate even the most tedious of media requests.
Nash is a special player, but more importantly, he’s a special person. Hopefully the general public will get to see that once this documentary is successfully funded, completed, and distributed to the masses.
