Most athletes try to steer clear of politics, but Superstar Steve Nash of the Phoenix Suns embraces the opportunity. Nash was a guest on ESPN's PTI and when asked about Arizona's tough, new immigration law, he said that he opposes the law and that it "damages our civil liberties...it opens up the potential for racial profiling and racism...I think that it is a bad precedent to set for our young people. I think it represents our state poorly in the eyes of the nation and the world. I think we have a lot of great attributes here and I think that it's something that we could do without and I think it hopefully will change a lot in the coming weeks."
The Phoenix Suns will wear "Los Suns" on their jerseys in Game 2 of the Western Conference semifinals on Wednesday night, owner Robert Sarver said, "to honor our Latino community and the diversity of our league, the state of Arizona, and our nation."
