Steve Nash is the king of charity soccer

Posted by on June 27th, 6:20 pm

Steve Nash picked a hell of a time to host his second annual celebrity “Showdown in Chinatown” soccer game in New York City.

In the hours following Nash’s Wednesday charity event, all the Suns did was trade Shaq, draft a future building block in Earl Clark and come awfully close and then possibly not to trading Amare Stoudemire.

Not exactly your average news week.

I obviously wasn’t in New York to watch and soccer isn’t exactly my sport of choice in any case, but here’s some links and videos from around the web about a match that also included Suns forward Grant Hill, ESPN hoops writer Marc Stein, Raptors forward Chris Bosh, Spurs guard Tony Parker and a host of soccer stars.

For good measure, here’s the Suns.com link to Earl Clark’s introductory presser from Friday.

Michael Schwartz founded ValleyoftheSuns in October 2008 and is the owner/editor emeritus of the site. He is currently working toward his MBA in sports business at San Diego State University.
