Fortunately, I have an awesome pair of parents, who are willing to indulge my crazy obsessions. And since I'm still obsessed with completing my collection of NBA jerseys, I had my dad pick me up this Steve Nash swingman jersey when he was in Phoenix a couple weeks ago.
There was a time when I didn't like Steve Nash, but he's grown on me as a player. I still don't know if he'll ever reach the NBA Finals, but I'm kind of rooting for him (not as much as I'm rooting for LeBron, obviously, but I'd still like to see him get there).
By knocking the Suns off my need list -- with a two-time MVP nonetheless -- I'm down to 7 NBA teams for which I don't currently own a jersey: the Bobcats, Pistons, Warriors, Grizzlies, Hornets, Raptors and Jazz. Well, technically I don't have a Thunder jersey either, but I do have two Kevin Durant Sonics jerseys (home and road from his rookie season), so I'm counting that.
Jersey Monday will continue every Monday until I run out of jerseys to spotlight. And since I’ve got more than 150 of them, that could be awhile.
