Steve Nash Takes It Off

The MVP flirts with fate by getting buzzed…we’ve got exclusive pics!

by Lang Whitaker

If Steve Nash knew we were using multiple posts to talk about his new haircut, he’d probably think we were ridiculous. Which we are.

Anyway, reader Aaron writes…
hey lang!
i stopped by at a football match last night between the local team, the Vancouver Whitecaps take on the 130th ranked INDIA national team…

anyway, before the kickoff, my friend spotted out this random guy out in the track area, who apparently isn’t so random at all…turns out that the reigning MVP decided show up with his head shaved in time for his charity game this weekend. i guess he’ll be able to go even faster come next season, now that he doesn’t have all that hair slowing him down.

Thanks, Aaron.

You want photos? Here ya go…

    You wouldn’t be able to tell that he wasn’t a member of that football team if you let him play the whole game, that’s how nice dude is with his footwork…. and now he looks the part too

    i’m even angrier now that THIS is the guy who’s won the last two MVP’s.

    great pics, though

  • Max Airington

    Its not terminal cancer, is it?

  • http://slamonline.com Lang Whitaker

    Not funny, Max.

    at first I was confused
    but then I realized that it must be a zidane tribute
    just wait
    hes gonna headbutt kobe next season

  • http://slamonline.com Lang Whitaker

    Now that’s funny.

  • Waxtron

    So is Nash going to lose all his powers like Samson?

  • epididymis

    maybe this is a sign of the end of nash’s mvp streak

  • Pic

    damn i caught a glimpse of that game last night, shouldve stuck and watched it! first dirk, then nash. who’s next, cubes?

  • http://benchrenaldo.blogspot.com mutoni

    Cubes bald would be the greatest thing ever.

    Man, Nash must have been hanging out with Dirk because his hair is the same way. I think his hair is his power and he is gonna lose that power this season. Looks like a cue ball!

  • God’s Son

    Anyone hear Jerry Stackhouse say that Nash looks like Demi Moore from that movie G.I. Jane? He said it on Cold Pizza this morning… I was almost too embarassed to say I watched Cold Pizza.


    but is it gonna stay that way?
    any pics of cuttino and his probably bald head?
    maybe lang should start a section dedicated solely to haircuts

    gotta have a pic of birdman and his perm. prrrrr

    See SLAM 30, page 41… Guess this means it’s time to do another Shawn Bradley poster and another Penny Hardaway cover. Awesome!

  • 15AM

    close-ups of his head can be seen at http://www.azcentral.com/sports/suns … thing is, what is he gonna do with his hands when bringing the ball?!? will be interesting to see if his hand motion to comb back his mop have gotten into him or if he can switch it off.

    at the end, i guess dirk and he just had a bet about winning the chip or so :o ]. next in line for a traditional army haircut: adam “cry baby” morrison, pau gasol (face included!), etan thomas and renaldo balkman, carmelo and mr. riley …

  • Aman

    hey…LANG/other readers…any update as to who will be at the game this Saturday?

    Also, any info. on the Dolphin Park tournament in Richmond, BC and will any NBA players be there?

  • Edu Mendonça

    After years of complaining by fans about his hair not flowing in the video games… he goes ronaldo!

  • illydiva

    I happen to think that Nash is kinda hot with his military cut.

    PS Even though I am a longtime SLAM subscriber, loyal linkstigator and HUGE NBA fan, my infrequent posts will usually include my opinion of the hotness of the player(s) in question….whether you boys like it or not.

    PPS 15AM what’s wrong w/ Melo’s hair?

  • http://slamonline.com Lang Whitaker

    Haven’t heard much about either game, but if any readers check it out, please send us your reports.

  • alvin

    Yeah, Nash’s brother, Marty, is on the Whitecaps, Vancouver’s soccer team. Nash is a crazy good soccer player, as well as baller, I played against him in high school.

  • rgeezy

  • Austin grant

    he donated his hair to cancer research is that not obviosu i unno if any of you kenw, but anyways im goin to the steve nash game this saturday u think that marion and bell and all those pheonix players will be there?

  • http://www.t-mac.com Hoa Truong

    Wow, I kinda like it. :P

  • Marco

    We need to set up a Steve Nash Hair Growth clock. We can time it to see how long it takes to grow back.

    Seriously though, that is tough to do – cutting hair that long. I probably would have cried.

  • KBee

    I lost my hair & beard for charity a couple of months ago – not a bad idea for any NBA players, coaches etc looking to follow the Dirk / Nash lead. The Australian website is:

    Wouldn’t it be awesome if Nash wore a headband next season?

  • http://yahoo.com DP

    I swear I’m sendin yall so much mail, but Nash needs to change his number now with the new hairdo. Don’t call him Nasty Nash, call Buzzy Nash cause its going to take some time for that to grow.

  • Blinguo

    Jason Kidd in Pheonix/Tiger Woods a few years back blonde afro time for Nash?

    Or by the time it grows back he’s deep into the playoffs and can do the patented push back behind the ears.

  • Robert

    Okay Phoenix Suns fans pray with me to the Basketball gods and hope that his hair will be in full swing come mid season lets also pray for the welness of amares knee and some reconition for my Godfather Shawn Marion

  • http://www.insidehoops.com NBA

    Nash without his hair will never win another MVP award, book it

  • kam

    why do you say that, even though he lost his hair aka his mojo doesnt mean he is not gonna get an mvp award. Nash is my canadian brotha from anotha motha i know he wont fail me :)

  • Deebo Charles

    Nash without hair? Thats a wrap. Y’all didn’t know the only reason Nash had so much freedom to run, get in the lane, create his own shot etc, is because nobody wanted to get hit by a wild strand of that sweaty mop he just cut?

    No mop = No space

    Its all downhill from here my friends.
