Nash voices support for gay marriage
"Hi I'm Steve Nash. I spend my summers in New York and I love playing at the Garden," the two-time MVP point guard said in the short video.
"A growing number of professional athletes are speaking out in support of gay and lesbian couples getting married, I'm proud to be one of them. Join me and the supermajority of New Yorkers who support marriage equality," he continued.
Nash's decision to join the campaign follows in the footsteps of New York Rangers forward Sean Avery, who also appeared in a video for the HRC earlier this month.
It also comes one week after Suns CEO Rick Welts revealed he is gay, and on the heels of two incidents in which high-profile NBA players were caught using an anti-gay slur.
Noah apologized after the game, saying he was "caught up in the moment."
Bryant, who drew a $100,000 fine from the NBA, said his words were "stupid and ignorant" and not indicative of his views toward homosexuals.
