Is Steve Nash fly (like a bird)?

The Nelly Furtado rumors are old, but SunsGossip has gotten several inquiries lately, so we did some investigating.

It all started when the Canadian pop tart mentioned Nash in that horrible "Promiscuous" song ("Hey is that the truth or are you talking trash / Is your game MVP like Steve Nash?"). If dropping a weak lyric is what passes for an affair these days, then half the rappers on the radio must be on the down-low with various NBA players (which may actually be true, but that's a topic for another blog). After the song came out, a Canadian gossip columnist speculated that Nelly and Nashy were a romantic item. The trash got picked up by Page Six and by noon the rumor was spreading faster than the bird flu.

As it turns out, Canada is a big country and the fellow nationals had met only once, at a charity basketball game a year ago. Yes, SunsGossip has dug through the archives to find a picture of said event.

Well, Nelly does appear to be eyeing some home-baked Canadian buns...but Stevie is clearly devoted only to his family. Case closed: Nelly Furtado may be a promiscuous girl, but Steve Nash is still the most valuable husband.

While it is awful cute that the Nash children wear the '1' and '3' jerseys to form Nash's signature '13', if the kids were to always walk in the formation as pictured and the numbers are indeed the same on the front and back of their jerseys, they would also be making the number of the not-so-forgotten man, number 31 Shawn "The Matrix" Marion.

Marion, a current member of the US National team, of course is considered one of the biggest reasons for the Suns' success, though given the salary cap climate, the emergence of young Boris Diaw and the abscence of Marion from the SunsGossip header logo and desktop wallpaper, perhaps SunsGossip has an inside line on what the future holds for him.

BTW, Steve's head was shaved at the time that he would be sporting the charity classic duds.

The head was shaved for this year's Charity Classic, but not at the charity game a year ago, which is when he met Nelly...
