Steve Nash was officially introduced as the Saviour of Canadian Basketball. Canadian Jesus, Amare might call him. It's a win-win job for Nash. If there's any improvement at all in the Canadian team, Steve gets the credit. If there's no improvement, there's plenty of other things to blame. Go Steve!

According to this gushing article in SportsNet.ca, Nash's main mission will be fund raising so the players can be flown around in first class and afford socks and balls.

Nash the saviour of Canadian basketball? - sportsnet.ca
Basketball may have been invented by a Canadian, but as far as Canadians playing the game, it was perfected by Steve Nash.

[...]It's estimated the national team will need an additional $4-million to make qualifying for the 2016 Olympics a realistic goal and before Nash came on board Canada Basketball - with his help - was able to get commitments for as much as $2-million already.

If you live in Canada and Steve Nash calls and asks for a donation, would you say no?

Here's some photos of General Manager Nash. Note the Canadian Red pocket square.
