PLAYERS: Steve Nash
TEAMS: Los Angeles Lakers
Los Angeles Lakers point guard Steve Nash may be known for his basketball skills, but he briefly displayed some soccer skill during Thursday night's NBA game against the Boston Celtics. Nash grew up playing soccer and displayed some of that skill in the third quarter after being fouled by Celtics guard Avery Bradley. Nash briefly started dribbling the basketball with this feet, keeping it up in the air without letting it touch the ground. Unfortunately, that soccer skill couldn't help against the Celtics, who handily beat the Lakers 116-95. H/T 101gg. Visit us at holdoutsports.com and follow us on Twitter @HoldoutSports.
