13. Steve Nash
Steve Nash will always be a back to back MVP, even if he’s probably the least deserving player to do it. Nash won MVP in 2005 and 2006 and finished second the following season, but he probably should’ve finished third or worse all three seasons. Still, let’s focus on the positives — Nash was one of the game’s all time genius passers and the maestro of Mike D’Antoni’s league changing Seven Seconds or Less Suns offense.
Nash ranks top 10 in assists per game, free throw percentage, and three point percentage. He was one of the league’s all time great shooters, and as great as a passer as he is, it’s a shame we didn’t get some Steph Curry years from him. If Nash had shot the ball a little bit more, he might not have gone 0–4 in Conference Finals, and he’d probably have cracked top 10 on this list.
