Retired superstar Steve Nash and wife Lilla announced the birth of their son on Wednesday, and it certainly looks like the legendary Phoenix Suns point guard is paying homage to his former team with his newborn's name.

Welcome to the world Luca Sun Nash. 8 pounds of perfect. So proud to be your mommy!

The proud mom revealed that young Luca Nash's middle name is "Sun" (presumably because "Luca Laker Nash" was a tad too alliterative).

And with that, Luca Nash becomes the top-ranked Canadian hoops prospect for the 2035 recruit class.
