Although he’d surely rather be getting physical against Tony Parker, yes, Steve Nash received a lap dance from Nicki Minaj during Tuesday’s Lil Wayne show in US Airways Center.
But as Nash said in a Facebook video today, “No big deal,” although it’s surely something Jared Dudley and the gang will give Nash a little light-hearted grief over when the Suns come back for pre-training camp workouts.
The Arizona Republic described the lap dance like this: “The video shows him seated in a chair on stage as Minaj runs her hand through his hair and caresses his chest from behind before straddling the chair and grinding into Nash while he just sits there with a look that says, ‘I wonder if I should have let this happen?'”
There’s no word yet on whether Minaj feels the Suns should continue to build around Nash or trade him to jump start the rebuilding process.
Mauer, Dowdell fined for March incident
Suns guard Zabian Dowdell and referee Ken Mauer received fines, according to SBNation, for a March 30 incident in which Mauer “disrespected” Dowdell according to the player before ejecting him.
Mauer reportedly called Dowdell an inappropriate term that begins with a “B,” as Zabian said what happened was “uncalled for” and that he had never been treated that way by an official.
The league told SB Nation, “While we do not believe Mauer used the language that was reported, his actions were still deemed to be inappropriate.”
The Suns did not ask the league to look into Mauer’s actions and head coach Alvin Gentry considered the issue closed in his mind by the time the team showed up for its next game.
If ‘Real Housewives’ comes to Scottsdale, Nash’s ex may star
According to The Arizona Republic there are conflicting reports on whether the popular “Real Housewives” series will be coming to Scottsdale.
No, this blog is not turning into Perez Hilton for the summer, that is only newsworthy because the potential housewives include Alejandra Nash, Steve’s ex, and Tina Dwyer, Dan Majerle’s ex.
Considering how private Two Time has been about his divorce and the events surrounding it, the last thing he must want is for Alejandra to parade around a reality show. If this show airs, however, it would be interesting for fans to get an inside look at her life.
Nash rooting for his former teammates
During Tuesday’s Game 2 between the Knicks and Celtics, Two Time tweeted, “Gotta say I want to see @Amareisreal and Mike D’antoni get the win tonight…”
Nash previously tweeted Jason Richardson: “@jrich23 good luck in the Playoffs!! Last year seems so long ago now. We’re all hoping you win it!!”
Like many Suns fans, Nash must feel that if Phoenix isn’t in it why not root on some former Suns?
