Nash Named Most Valuable Player

It's official! Phoenix Suns guard Steve Nash was named the 2004-05 NBA Most Valuable Player during a press conference at America West Arena on Sunday. After leading the Suns to the third largest turnaround in league history, Nash becomes just the second MVP in franchise history (Charles Barkley, 1992-93) and the first point guard to win the award since Magic Johnson in 1990.
