Instagram: Does Steve Nash secretly wish that he played for the Bucks? He recently tweeted the picture of a stonewashed denim jacket (right) with the caption, “A must have the Rose Bowl swap meet.”
Yes, I know I’m reading far too much into it. And yes, that is one heck of a masterpiece in jean. But tweeting a design that is obviously just a hair away from a team logo like that either means that A) he has a soft spot for Milwaukee and the Bucks, or B) he forgot the Bucks belonged in the NBA and would only realize that it’s essentially their logo if someone else pointed it out to him.
Aw shucks. The correct answer is probably scenario B), isn’t it?
