Adios, eh?
In the aftermath of the New Times story, which revealed that Steve Nash was leaving the Suns this month to run for mayor of Victoria, British Columbia, Canada (Provide Link), the Phoenix Suns blanketed both their official Web site and the Internet with denials that their star point guard was exiting.

But the truth was delivered by Steve Nash himself after last night's Suns-Spurs game. In response to a reporter's question about his canadian political ambitions, he replied "Obviously I'll be Prime Minister one day."

Our story is true. We have gone back to our sources both within the Suns organization and with former high-ranking Suns personnel and received nothing but confirmations about Nash's plans. We have double-checked all our Canadian sources and they also say it's a done deal.

After November 15 the remarkable Steve Nash will be gone so enjoy his wizardry while you can and please fill US Airways Center up for his final appearance that night as the Suns square off against the Denver Nuggets.

I must say I would love this story from a columnist or reporter around April 1. But I would fire whomever authorized its publication if I were the Editor in Chief of PhxNT any other time. I just scratch my head...using his talent Friedman spent his credibility.

Why would you think that its "odd" that the cocaine canabis conversation was mentioned when it was mentioned? Should the Famila de los Cabeza waited until Esteban was indicted, involved in a car wreck, made a spectacular shot, married his cousin, purchased a dog? It was mentioned because I've never thought much of athletes (a salary of millions for playing catch) and it came to mind when it did. Nothing nefarious, Tommy.

I don't get it. Is this a real story or some sort of weird joke? This news isn't true...

From the NT webpage attached to another of Mr. Friedman's stories: "Editor's note: Barry Friedman was a New Times columnist for more than sixyears, and in that time perpetrated a number of memorable hoaxes...."

Its total B.S. Are your sources at the suns the janitors? Maybe the people that clean the locker room?

This story is dumb.

Newtimes is only useful for searching for concerts and if you're into whores you can check the massage ads.

What a lovely evening the Cabeza's had one night at a fashionable Scottsdale sushi restaurant when we we seated at the table next to Steve and the Sun's team owner. A treat, it was, to overhear the sports hero and his entourage loudly speak about using cocaine and marijuana. What a nice, clean Canadian boy. He should do well in politics.

Seems odd you would wait until a story like this comes out to 'mention' your lovely night out.

In the mean time, AzCentral is reporting that both the Suns and Mr. Nash are adamantly denying his retirement.
