Steve Nash OK with not making All-Star team

Two-time NBA MVP Steve Nash isn’t an NBA All-Star this season. But he’s cool with it. The Arizona Republic (Paul Coro) reports: His assist average has been on a steady recovery from the first 13 games, when he averaged 7.6 assists in a slower offense that took the ball out of his hands more. “The truth is I don’t really deserve it,” Nash said of being selected for the All-Star Game. “The team’s in seventh place (in the West). Maybe if we were in fourth or fifth, it’d be a different story. There are others who are more deserving.” Nash passed Terry Porter on Thursday for 11th on the NBA career assists list.
