Canadian basketball legend Steve Nash will make an appearance at the NBA Crossover exhibition scheduled to take place in Shoreditch.

The former Phoenix Suns and LA Lakers player will be at the event that will display how the American league has influenced popular culture.

Steve, who was named in the NBA All-Star team eight times , said: “Basketball has been a way of life for me. From my earliest beginnings, playing on a playground through to performing on the biggest stage I am constantly reminded of the impact basketball has on everyday life.

“Basketball has its very own unique culture and NBA Crossover will illustrate how the worlds of sports and popular culture collide.”

NBA Crossover will feature interactive exhibits, video and imagery to showcase the relationship between the league, its players, fashion, music, film and entertainment.
