Amar’e Stoudemire Says Steve Nash’s Hall of Fame Induction ‘Was A Special Moment’

Steve Nash is one of the best point guards to ever play in the NBA and his stellar production throughout his career earned him a special honor this past weekend.

Nash was officially inducted into the Naismith Memorial Basketball Hall of Fame and among those in the crowd was his former Phoenix Suns teammate, Amar’e Stoudemire.

Nash and Stoudemire were a lethal pick-and-roll duo in Phoenix. The two stars were teammates for six seasons and both put up grand numbers. With Nash as his point guard, Stoudemire averaged 23.2 points and 9.0 rebounds while shooting an efficient 56.5 percent from the floor. With Stoudemire as his rim roller, Nash averaged 17.0 points and 10.9 assists.

A two-time league MVP, Nash thanked Stoudemire during his Hall of Fame speech, something Stoudemire greatly appreciated.

“It was a special moment,” Stoudemire told Brandon ‘Scoop B’ Robinson on Scoop B Radio. “My first three years, I didn’t completely understand what we were doing. But we were doing something special. At the time, it was happening so fast, so we didn’t really know exactly what was going on until year two or year three.”

In 1,217 games in the NBA with the Dallas Mavericks, Suns and Los Angeles Lakers, Steve Nash averaged 14.3 points, 3.0 rebounds and 8.5 assists per game. He was an eight-time All-Star, a five-time assist champion and made the All-NBA team seven times.
