1. Steve Nash (70% of the vote)
Getting nearly three-quarters of the entire vote here is some accomplishment, but we should expect no less from Steve Nash. In what started out as a close contest between himself, Johnson and Booker, Nash quickly separated himself from the rest of the pack, and he never looked back.
Where do you start with the point guard? The fact he played twice for the franchise almost makes him more endearing, in that he couldn’t break through initially after being drafted by the Suns because both Johnson and Jason Kidd were on the roster.
After six seasons with the Dallas Mavericks, and a couple of All-Star appearances to close out his time in Texas, Nash was back for round two with the Suns a much better player. Perhaps not more well-rounded, because outside of being exceptionally scrappy, he was never known for his defensive work.
Nash was then at the peak of his powers, and would incredibly win back-to-back MVP trophies during this period. Debate the merits of who should have won these all you want, Nash did and that is the bottom line on the matter. Piloting the “seven seconds or less” offensive juggernaut is something he also deserves a ton of credit for.
Nothing encapsulates the love that Suns fans have for Nash more than this fact. Despite leaving as a 38-year-old to spend the last two years of his career with the Los Angeles Lakers of all teams, every fan can look past that fact with no issues at all. Nash was ring chasing, so what? He will always be the son of the Suns, and nothing can change that love.
