There have been a lot of ridiculous things Steve Nash has done on the basketball court. After all, it's hard to win back-to-back MVP awards and be a seven-time All-Star without doing a few things to make people look silly.
Unfortunately, times have gotten tough for Steve. Things aren't going well in Phoenix. After losing Amare Stoudamire in the offseason, the team traded away Jason Richardson, Hedo Turkoglu and Earl Clark for a bag of magic beans, essentially killing what slim playoff chances they had in the first place.
It all adds up to watching one of the NBA's most exciting players languishing in a miserable situation for what remains of his career. It's been frustrating enough to fans that it even spawned its own "Free Steve Nash" hashtag on Twitter.
But while we all scrape together enough bail money to get Nash out of basketball jail and into playoff parole, let's take a moment to raise a glass and wish Happy Birthday to the Most Ridiculous Man In The World.
