Michigan PG Nik Stauskas Receives Direction From Steve Nash
Nik Stauskas has received words of advice from fellow Canadian Steve Nash.
"A couple years ago I went to Phoenix for a few days and worked out with him," Stauskas said. "One of my AAU coaches (Anthony Otto) grew up with Steve Nash and is really good friends with him. He took me to a Raptors game one time against the Suns, and the year after I went to Phoenix. He's a really nice guy."
Stauskas and Nash have kept in contact. Nash re-tweeted Stauskas a few weeks ago after the Michigan freshman tweeted about a good workout with the Wolverines.
"Working with him, you realize how much harder you have to work and learn," Stauskas said. "Just watching him shoot around and the ballhandling, it's amazing the stuff he can do. It motivated me to work harder. At this point there's nothing specific he can say -- it's more of just looking at the lifestyle he lives."
