Steve Nash Makes Amazing Trick Shot for Chinese Commercial [VIDEO]

Trick shot videos are popping up all over the internet these days and Phoenix Suns guard Steve Nash makes a pretty unbelievable one that combines both his basketball and soccer skills (he was a footie star as a youth, FYI) in this ad for Chinese athletic apparel company Lu You.
