After 19 years in NBA, Steve Nash has officially announced his retirement.

Steve’s accolades include two league MVP honors. Nash has also handed out the third-most assists in NBA history, assuring his place in the Hall of Fame as one of the greatest point guards to ever step onto the hardwood.

Nash formally announced he is walking away from the game Saturday in a letter published on The Players’ Tribune website.

“The greatest gift has been to be completely immersed in my passion and striving for something I loved so much — visualizing a ladder, climbing up to my heroes,” Nash wrote. “The obsession became my best friend. I talked to her, cherished her, fought with her and got knocked on my ass by her.”

“And that is what I’m most thankful for in my career. In my entire life, in some ways. Obviously, I value my kids and my family more than the game, but in some ways having this friend — this ever-present pursuit — has made me who I am, taught me and tested me, and given me a mission that feels irreplaceable. I am so thankful. I’ve learned so many invaluable lessons about myself and about life. And of course I still have so much to learn. Another incredible gift.”

In honor of Steve’s retirement here is every highlight from his career worth watching.
