Steve Nash shouts out Braeden Anderson

NBA great Steve Nash gave incoming Pirate Braeden Anderson a shout-out on Twitter yesterday, recognizing his crazy journey to South Orange.

Nash, who was raised in Canada after moving there as an infant, gave some Twitter love to his compatriot yesterday, presumably after reading Jerry Carino’s story linked in his tweet (if you haven’t read it, what are you waiting for?) Anderson also hails from Canada and also played his prior college ball in central California at Fresno State; Nash graduated from Santa Clara.

Meanwhile, Isaiah Whitehead returned from the Stephen Curry Select Camp today, who is an NBA great in the making.
