An Undercover Steve Nash Plays Some Pickup Ball In Beijing [Pics]
Total Pro Sports – Is seems as though playing soccer in New York’s Chinatown was not enough for Phoenix Suns’ guard Steve Nash, so he decided to go for the real thing in Beijing.
Photos were taken of Nash playing some pickup basketball and kicking around the soccer ball in a friendly game while in the Chinese capital for promotional and charity work this past weekend. And to make things even more interesting, Nash wasn’t really Nash, or at least that was his plan. Unfortunately it failed miserably.
The All-Star Canadian wore a Chinese opera bandanna and some white protective goggles but that didn’t fool anyone:
“As soon as I walked on they recognized me. It didn’t really work.”
He played a while before heading over to a soccer field in the area to show off some more of his skills. If you ask me, it really should have been the “Nash Vs.” show rather than “Shaq Vs.”, unless you enjoy athletes suffering public humiliation.
Here are some of the photos taken of Nash during his day in China’s parks.
