STEVE NASH DENIES TAKEOVER OF FAVORITE TEAM - SPURS: The LONDON TIMES reports a little-known fact about Steve Nash - he’s a major Spurs fan, and he was rumored to be involved in the purchase of the team.
No, not the South Texas NBA squad, but London’s perennially underachieving Tottenham Hotspur of England’s Premier League (soccer).
Nash: “I would love to own Spurs but I don’t have a spare £300 million in my back pocket so it’s not going to happen. I am a lifelong fan of the club and it’s obviously extremely profitable and well run.”
Nash, whose father is from Tottenham, has that half-right. Tottenham, despite mediocre on-pitch results, does make a mint from some of the EPL’s loyalist fans.
