According to a USA Today report, Steve Nash will be trying out for Inter Milan before the team opens play in the Guinness International Champions Cup. The tournament pits eight club teams from around the world, with a winner to be crowned in Miami on Aug. 7.
When asked about the upcoming tryout, Nash had this to say:
“It’s a dream come true to get a chance to try out, not just to try out but to take the field with Inter Milan, one of the great, storied franchises in professional sports,” Nash said in an interview with the Associated Press. “I feel like a little kid.”
Normally I would hit the MJ Shrug on something like this but come on Steve. You are 39 years old coming off an injury plagued season. Your team is going to be fighting for every win it gets this coming season, so is this something that needs to be a priority during the offseason? Maybe Inter Milan can get the Suns training staff out there with him.
