Did anyone see this from the Phoenix New Times?â†µ
It’s a story that says Suns star guard and human rights advocate Steve Nash is retiring on Nov. 15 to pursue a career in politics in his native country, Canada.
(UPDATE: Fake story. The Suns refuted it and called it humorous. November Fools ...)â†µ
Really? I mean, the Suns aren’t off to a great start, but they have a tough early schedule, and Nash doesn’t strike me as the type that would abandon his team so soon. Then again, I only moved here earlier this year and am not so familiar with Nash.â†µ
Stay tuned, I guess. Quite a scoop for the New Times if it proves to be true. Then again, if not, how many folks will call out the publication for being incorrect?â†µ

Nash said he heard about this during the game tonight.â†µ
"I don't know what to say about that," Nash said in the locker room after tonight's Suns' loss.â†µ
Asked if he did have political aspirations at some point, Nash quipped, "Obviously, I'll be Prime Minister one day, but I was going to wait until after I finish playing basketball."â†µ
Not technically a full denial if you are the type to read into such things.
