Ray Lewis as a Steeler? Nobody could see it

Steve Nash is going to play for the Los Angeles Lakers this season after a blockbuster deal this week. Nash’s trade to the Los Angeles Lakers comes months after Peyton Manning signed a deal with the Denver Broncos. But Nash’s deal is much more striking considering nobody ever thought they would see a day when Nash was a teammate with Kobe Bryant on the Los Angeles Lakers.
