Amare Stoudemire: Steve Nash’s Hall of Fame was “a special moment”

Steve Nash is living his best life!

He’s promoted his app during Apple’s “special event,” today.

As per CBS’s James Herbert: 

Yes, just days after celebrating his induction into the Naismith Memorial Basketball Hall of Fame, the former Phoenix Suns and Dallas Mavericks star got to work promoting his app. Nash — along with the likes of Mark Cuban, Jeremy Lin and Sam Hinkie, who wants to work with you — is an investor in HomeCourt, a basketball training app that allows you to record and track your shooting.

 

Last weekend, Steve Nash was enshrined into the Naismith Basketball Hall of Fame.

Now he’s promoting his product. He’s getting better with time.

An eight-time NBA All-Star, the decorated Canadian basketball player was a seven-time All-NBA selection and was named the NBA’s Most Valuable Player while playing for the Phoenix Suns.

One of Nash’s best assets? Amare Stoudemire.

Nash and Stoudemire were teammates in Phoenix from 2005-2010 and put on a show!

Nash made sure to thank Stoudemire in his induction speech. “In Phoenix, I got to play with Amare Stoudemire,” Nash said.

“I didn’t really watch a lot of film when I played. I certainly don’t want to look back now. But whenever something comes across my timeline or I see a pick-and-roll with Amare, it makes me smile. This guy was the ultimate target for a point guard. He made the game a lot of fun.”

Stoudemire was present at Nash’s ceremony on Friday at the Naismith Hall of Fame in Springfield, Massachusetts. He hasn’t said much publicly since Nash’s induction, but did take to instagram and Twitter to tribute his Hall of Fame point guard.

Stoudemire posted on his now Private Instagram account: 

“Congrats to my Boi ‘2 time” (Steve Nash). The nickname that @jalenvseverybody gave him in Phoenix @suns (2x MVP) such a honor to have been your teammate #rockstars. Congrats on becoming immortal. #class2018 #dyanmicduo NashxStat. cheers #1love #HallofFame 

“It was a special moment,” Stoudemire told me this weekend.

Nash and Stoudemire made the Suns a title contender and went toe to toe in the NBA’s Western Conference with Kobe’s Los Angeles Lakers, Tim Duncan, Manu Ginobili and Tony Parker’s San Antonio Spurs and Dirk Nowitzki’s Dallas Mavericks.

On Saturday, Stoudemire was on the campus of Rutgers University in Piscataway, New Jersey. He played at the Rutgers Athletic Center in Byron Scott’s Primetime Basketball League, a new 5-on-5, full court, pro summer basketball league.

Stoudemire said he wouldn’t have missed Steve Nash’s induction for the world and since Nash’s enshrinement, he’s been reflective on he and Nash’s time together. “My first three years, I didn’t completely understand what we were doing,” he said.

“But we were doing something special. At the time it was happening so fast, we didn’t really know exactly what was going on until year two or year three.”
