Ex-NBA star Steve Nash switches to soccer


Steve Nash has proved to be a solid soccer player even during his time in the NBA. After Nash retired, he seems to be getting more and more involved with soccer.

Nash, along with Phoenix Suns owner Robert Sarver have bought a controlling share of Spanish soccer team Real Mallorca, AP reported.

The Mediterranean island club has recently announced that Sarver’s company, also owned by Nash and Andy Kohlberg, has bought shares worth more than 20 million euros ($21 million).

Mallorca won the 2002-03 Copa del Rey title and had played for 16 consecutive seasons in Spain’s top league before being relegated to the second division in 2013.

Steve Nash was a 2-time NBA MVP and participated in 8 All-Star games. He led the NBA in assists in six seasons, and in assists per game in 5 seasons. He played a total of 1217 NBA games (started in 1053) during 18 seasons, for Phoenix Suns, Dallas Mavericks and LA Lakers.
