See Snoop Dogg And Steve Nash Play Some Pick-Up Basketball Together

Managing Editor, Sports + DIME


Steve Nash sure seems to be enjoying retirement. He’s producing a movie about the Dallas party scene in the ’80s. He’s about to be inducted into the Suns’ Ring of Honor. And he’s finding time to play some pickup basketball with none other than The Doggfather himself.

Snoop hasn’t exactly been out of the sports news, either, as his son Cordell Broadus ended up leaving the UCLA football team before the beginning of his freshman season. (You may remember Broadus had a memorable Signing Day when he picked the Bruins over USC and was a four-star recruit on Rivals.)

There are two truly great parts of this video. (1) The fact that Nash is shooting hoops with an apple in his mouth, which leads me to wonder what other ridiculous things really good current and former NBA players can do while they’re shooting. Texting? Why not. Poaching an egg? Maybe. Changing the oil in their car? Okay, maybe that’s a stretch. (2) The fact that Snoop collects those rebounds in exactly the manner you’d expect Snoop to collect rebounds. He doesn’t exert any effort whatsoever and looks amazingly smooth while doing it.
