Steve Nash has a passion for film-making, whether directing or being involved in the creative process, but starring in anything but comedic shorts is not his style.

That’s why the two-time NBA MVP, from Victoria B.C., was hesitant when a documentary about himself was initially pitched several years ago.

“When we first started to pitch Steve, him, being so humble it was sort of a, ‘do people really care about me or my story?’” Nash the Movie director Michael Hamilton, who has known Nash for years through mutual friends, told the Sun on Wednesday.

Hamilton and fellow director Corey Ogilvie told Nash there definitely was interest, so, “he kind of gave us his blessing and away we went,” Hamilton said.

The result was a documentary profiling one of the most interesting people in professional sports, who doubles as the most successful basketball player this country has ever produced.
