Nash has a medical condition called spondylolisthesis, which causes muscle tightness and back pain.
Due to the condition, when he is not playing in basketball games, he lies on his back rather than sitting on the bench to keep his muscles from stiffening.
The biggest question many fans of Nets are trying to answer is whether this condition will cause them problems when their new head coach has to put in midnight candle hours and bring about results they are working so hard to stay away from in the first place.
However, the team is said to have put this into consideration and is confident that it will be a non-issue for the coach and the team and its performance in the long run.
Stephen John Nash was born on the 7th of February 1974 and is a Canadian professional basketball coach and former player who is now the head coach for the Brooklyn Nets of the National Basketball Association (NBA) and a senior advisor of the Canadian men’s national team.
As a player, he played 18 seasons in the National Basketball Association (NBA). He was an eight-time NBA All-Star and a seven-time All-NBA selection.
Twice, Nash was named the NBA Most Valuable Player while playing for the Phoenix Suns. The team’s board says that record is all that they focused on when they agreed to give the coveted spot to Nash.
In 2001, Nash met Alejandra Amarilla in Manhattan. They married in June 2005 and had twin daughters, Lola and Bella, born on 14 October 2004 and a son, Matteo, born 12 November 2010.
On the day of his son’s birth, Nash made a statement to Life & Style in which he announced the birth but called it a “bittersweet moment,” revealing that he and his wife had “lived separately for the past several months” and are “in the process of dissolving” their marriage.
In March 2016, Nash became engaged to Lilla Frederick, a former Pepperdine University and junior women’s U.S. team volleyball player.
They married in September 2016. In July 2017, Frederick gave birth to their son, Luca Sun Nash, at Cedars-Sinai Hospital in Los Angeles, California.
In 2006, Nash denied that he was romantically involved with Canadian singer Nelly Furtado. She had referenced him in her 2006 song “Promiscuous,” which led to rumors that they were linked.
They both grew up in British Columbia.
Nash’s younger brother, Martin, played soccer for the Vancouver Whitecaps FC and made 30 appearances for the Canadian national soccer team.
Their younger sister, Joann, was the captain of the University of Victoria Vikes women’s soccer team for three years and was named a Canada West Universities Athletic Association All-Star.
She is married to professional ice hockey player Manny Malhotra. Nash is the godfather of New York Knicks star R. J. Barrett.
