Steve Nash is wearing a luchador mask before Canada-Mexico game

Tuesday September 8th, 2015

Steve Nash’s career as a player may be over but he is not done with basketball yet, currently serving as the general manager of the Canadian national basketball team.

He is with the squad on its current trip to Mexico City to face off against the Mexican national team, and while there he decided to pick up a piece of local culture in the form of a luchador’s mask.

One could easily see Nash’s speed and agility lending itself well to the high flying wrestling style of Lucha Libre, but if his back is no longer able to handle basketball, he is not likely to find a doctor who would allow him to suffer a top rope suplex.
