Nash Changes Jersey Number

Oct. 16, 2000

TORONTO, Canada - Former Santa Clara men's basketball star Steve Nash has decided to change the number on his Dallas Mavericks uniform from 13 to 7.

As you may recall, Nash wears number 7 when he is playing with the Canadian national men's team.

"I'm changing my number to 7 this week in honour of my teammates and all of the overwhelming support I received from Canadians everywhere," said Nash.

The new number was debuted at the Air Canada Centre on Wednesday, October 18 at the Dallas Mavericks/Toronto Raptors pre-season game.
