Two-time MVP Steve Nash, 41, might be newly retired but he shows no signs of slowing down any time soon.
The former Lakers point guard is hosting the 8th edition of his charity Soccer match, Showdown, on Wednesday, June 24, 2015- located in the Big Apple. In town will be Italy’s Word Cup star Alessandro Del Piero, who will also be playing in the match that is raising money to benefit kids in underserved communities. Steve has a pretty impressive roster of professional athlete friends who have participated in past matches…people like Miami Heat’s Chris Bosh, San Antonio Spurs’ Tony Parker, Golden State Warriors’ Klay Thompson- to name a few.
This year’s Showdown will be sponsored by GNC, Cyber Dust, Major League Soccer, Jawbone ®, and Phebe’s Tavern & Grill.
