All Hail Steve Nash And The Phoenix Suns For Their Take On Arizona's SB 1070:"I Think The Law Is Very Misguided."

I've always loved Steve Nash as a player, but major kudos to him and the entire Suns organization for taking a very principled stand against Arizona


I've always loved Steve Nash as a player, but major kudos to him and the entire Suns organization for taking a very principled stand against Arizona's hateful SB 1070.

In an extremely bold move, the Phoenix Suns as an organization made a strong political statement in opposition to the recent Arizona immigration bill.

Discussions on taking action began last week after the bill passed, with an idea that came from Robert Sarver, Managing Partner of the Phoenix Suns.

According to Steve Kerr, the team discussed it internally before going to the league for approval to both wear the 'Los Suns' jerseys, but also to come out publicly in this way.

Kerr said both the NBA and the San Antonio Spurs were fully supportive of the Suns move.

Ultimately, the decision was left up to the players, but in a locker room led by Steve Nash, it is no surprise how that turned out.

"I think the law is very misguided. I think it is unfortunately to the detriment to our society and our civil liberties and I think it is very important for us to stand up for things we believe in," Nash said of the bill. "I think the law obviously can target opportunities for racial profiling. Things we don't want to see and don't need to see in 2010."

I've been going after the MLB because they have so many foreign born players, but this law has ramifications throughout the entire sports world. Major props to the NBA also for giving them the approval to wear a different uniform and speaking out against the law. They could have taken the cowardly way out and remained silent. That speaks volumes about how they feel about SB 1070. I can't wait to see the Suns wear their new jersey for game two: 'Los Suns' I will be rooting for them now. Go Suns.
