During his stellar 18-year NBA career, Steve Nash spent eight seasons with the Phoenix Suns and played his best basketball with the franchise. He was named MVP twice while a member of the team in 2005 and 2006, and is considered one of the best players to ever play for them.

The 43-year-old Canadian international may have just decided to pay homage to his former team with the birth of his son on Wednesday. His wife, Lilla, revealed that the second name they decided to give him is Sun, via an Instagram post.

Selected 15th overall back in the 1996 draft, Nash started his career with the Suns before being traded to the Dallas Mavericks where he began to establish himself as a bonafide star. He then returned to Phoenix in 2004, where he led them to five playoff appearances, and even reached the Western Conference Finals twice.

Nash may have ended his playing career with the Los Angeles Lakers, but he will be remembered mostly for how he played with the Suns, together with Amar’e Stoudemire, Joe Johnson, and Shawn Marion, just to name a few.
