It’s no secret that Phoenix Suns’ point guard Steve Nash is a fan of the ‘beautiful game’. Nash grew up playing soccer in Canada and has been known to organize All-Star soccer games featuring both basketball and soccer players during the NBA offseason. So it isn’t too surprising to see Nash offer his modeling services to former teammate and part-time photographer, Boris Diaw, for a series of ‘football’-related photos.
In a collaboration with Nike, Diaw took photos of various athletes and friends to showcase the new away kit for the French Football Federation and offer an interpretation of Nike’s Silhouette-Blance. Nash is pictured with his soccer-style haircut in a pose that announces that he is about to do some serious ball juggling.
