3. Steve Nash (18.8 PPG, 10.5 APG in 2005/06)
Steve Nash? How is he international? Oh yaaaaa…. he’s Canadian and born in South Africa. Arguably one of the best point guards ever and maybe the best passers ever. His Suns teams were so much fun to watch in the mid 2000s and it’s a damn shame they could never get over the hump. Nash made everyone around him better. He made the careers of Shawn Marion, Amare Stoudemire, Boris Diaw, Joe Johnson while in Phoenix.
Nash is the only international player in NBA history to win back-to-back MVPs, and is a member of the 90-50-40 club (FT, FG and 3pt FG). He’s a 8-time All-Star and a 7-time All-NBA member, and he’s without a doubt the best international guard in NBA history.
