Where Irony Happens

February 25th was “Basketball North Night” at the ACC in Toronto. During the game against the Phoenix Suns, several important figures in Canadian Basketball history were honoured on the big screen.

Meanwhile, on the court, Canadian Steve Nash became only the seventh player in NBA history to surpass 9000 assists, as the Suns cruised past the Raptors, 110-92. Nash was chosen 15th overall in the 1996 draft. The Raptors had the second pick that year, but rather than doing the patriotic thing and drafting a Canadian future MVP and Hall-of-Famer, they went with Marcus Camby. Nice.

Oh, and his first assist of the game? An alley-oop pass to…you guessed it…Vince Carter.
