Nash was the first point guard to learn how to dominate the changing NBA. “I’m not a huge fan of the legacy game, to be fair,” Nash said. “I think it’s incredibly flattering, and I’m humbled every time someone says that I’ve had an impact on the game. I would never want to sit here and say that I deserve that. But at the same time, to hear from those guys and to have their support and respect is the ultimate. And to walk away from the game with that respect and admiration is the greatest gift, I think. “I’m looking forward to turning on the TV and watching them play for the next 10 years. It’s very, very special.

Dallas didn’t have a proper practice facility back then, so Nowitzki and Nash would sometimes spend their nights shooting around at a local health club. On the main court was the gym’s regular run, filled with nine-to-fivers getting in a workout. Off to the side were two future Hall-of-Famers, practicing post-ups and baseline jumpers on a side hoop and trying their best to stay out of the way. The one-on-one games between Nash and Nowitzki have become a part of the lore of their friendship. The benefits for Nowitzki, however, were made tangible more immediately in the ways he learned to use his height to his advantage against smaller defenders.
