Steve Nash was born in South Africa, a long way from Canada. But from his determined youth in Victoria, British Columbia, when he told his mom he was going to play basketball in the NBA, to his years in the world's best basketball league, Steve Nash: Most Valuable Player details his every important move on and off the court. Not only did Nash make it to the NBA, he became a dominant player, the first Canadian to be named the league's MVP, and one of only eight players in league history to be named MVP two years in a row. An inspiring story and a true story, this is one story not to be missed. Book jacket.
