Steve Nash: Challenging The DC Status Quo Is Like 'A Pea Shooter And An Elephant'

Steve Nash thinks about much more than pick-and-rolls, backdoor cuts and passing lanes in his everyday life. When it comes to politics, however, he wonders if it's even worth it to open his mouth.

Nash, an 18-year NBA veteran, joined HuffPost Live on Wednesday to discuss the Steve Nash Foundation Showdown and bemoaned to host Marc Lamont Hill the political landscape of today, particularly lobbyists clogging Washington. He said, though, that no matter how much he talks, nothing will get done.

"That's like taking on the devil and the beast," Nash said. "It's almost like a pea shooter and an elephant. I'd love to get involved or speak out about that, but for what?"
