The Phoenix Suns will induct former point guard and two-time NBA Most Valuable Player Steve Nash into the Suns Ring of Honor on Friday, and the players will be wearing custom Stance socks on the court to commemorate the night. 

When the Suns take to the court to play the Portland Trail Blazers, they will be sporting an image of Nash, basketball in hand, on their legs. This is the first time in the history of the NBA that team will have an image on their socks.

The socks come from the company Stance, which is now making unique socks from NBA teams since partnering with the league.

Nash was picked No. 15 by the Suns in the 1996 NBA draft, being named an All-Star six times in 10 seasons in Phoenix. Nash is the Suns’ all-time leader in assists, 3-point field goals made and free-throw percentage.
