Keynote Speaker: Head Coach, Brooklyn Nets; Former Professional Basketball Player & Founder, Steve Nash Foundation

Steve Nash Biography

Stephen Nash is a former NBA player who was selected as the head coach for the Brooklyn Nets in 2020. He was born in Johannesburg, South Africa, (he returned as a CBS correspondent to the 2010 World Cup) into an athletic family: his father, John, played semi-professional soccer and his mother, Jean, netball. After two years in South Africa, the Nash family immigrated to Canada to avoid raising their children amidst apartheid. The family played a variety of sports – including soccer, hockey, lacrosse, basketball and tennis – in Victoria, BC, off Canada’s scenic west coast; Nash’s younger brother, Martin, played professional soccer, and his sister, Joann, was a standout college player.

In 1992, Nash moved to Santa Clara University on the only basketball scholarship offered him. After leading the Broncos to three NCAA Tourney berths (and one of the NCAA’s all-time upsets, over the Arizona Wildcats), he graduated with a BA in Sociology, and was drafted 15th overall to the Phoenix Suns in 1996 NBA Draft.

After two years behind Kevin Johnson and Jason Kidd, Nash was traded to the Dallas Mavericks. While playing for the Mavericks, his style of play matured into All-Star status. He found his niche in the NBA and played internationally for Team Canada, including a 7th place finish at the 2000 Olympic Games in Sydney.

After a very successful run with the Mavericks, he began a new basketball family with the Phoenix Suns. In 2012, Nash moved to the Los Angeles Lakers in a sign-and-trade deal, where he donned the #10 jersey for the first time on July 11th at the Lakers facility on (no kidding) Nash Street. He announced his retirement from the NBA on March 21, 2015, with an article he penned for the Players’ Tribune.

He served as a player development consultant to the Golden State Warriors, and soccer and NBA analyst at Bleacher Report Football/Turner Sports. He can typically be found creating content for television and film with his production company, Control Media, and is also an engaged investor, including ownership stakes in the Vancouver Whitecaps and Real Mallorca Football Clubs. His shoe – a menswear standout with LA-based Wolf & Shepherd – named the Crossover for its athletic heart and business body, launched in autumn of 2019, with proceeds supporting the work of the Steve Nash Foundation.

His role as a leader on and off the court have resonated with many, as he provides an energized example of how to give back as President and Founder of the Steve Nash Foundation. Dedicated to assisting underserved children in their health, personal development, education and enjoyment of life, the Steve Nash Foundation provides critical needs health and education resources with a focus on local and national strategic initiatives, including new platforms addressing early childhood neurodevelopment, and health-focused athlete development for children and adolescents. Nash has been named to the Order of BC, the Order of Canada, and received numerous awards, including the St. Boniface Foundation International Award, and an honorary degree at the University of Victoria for his humanitarianism. In 2015, his jersey was retired by the Phoenix Suns as he entered the Suns Ring of Honor, and in 2018, Nash was inducted into the Naismith Memorial Basketball Hall of Fame. In 2020, he was selected as the Head Coach for the Brooklyn Nets.
