'Los Suns' stood up for beliefs

Some fans didn't appreciate the Phoenix Suns wearing "Los Suns" jerseys during the NBA playoff game Wednesday night — which the team did in part to protest Arizona's new anti-immigration law. But star guard Steve Nash (in photo) thought it was "fantastic." He said the immigration law was "very misguided" and "to the detriment of our society and our civil liberties." Though some fans said the team should play basketball, not politics, Nash said: "it's really important for us to stand up for things we believe in."
