Steve Nash is one of the best point guards of all time, and he is currently the coach of the Brooklyn Nets. During his time as a player, he was known for his craftiness and jump shooting, as well as his ability to embarrass defenders. Steve Nash was known for being able to get his teammates easy shots with his playmaking, but he was also a very good shot creator as well.

Even though he's 47, it looks as though Steve Nash hasn't lost his touch. In a video shared by Reddit user LevelHeadedLakersFan, we see Steve Nash on an outdoor court in a suit, casually playing basketball. The video features one amazing nutmeg from Nash. 

Steve Nash is obviously still really good, and this video just illustrates the difference between regular people and NBA players. Even former NBA players like Nash can easily beat the majority of street basketball players 1v1, and Nash is able to do it here while still wearing his work clothes. A suit isn't the best attire for some basketball, but it didn't seem to matter to Nash.

We've seen NBA players dominate plenty of times before against regular competition, with some spectacular performances coming in Pro-Ams. Former All-Star Isaiah Thomas recently channeled his inner Kobe Bryant and scored 81 points at a run. Another player who showed out this summer was Boston Celtics guard Payton Pritchard, who put up an astounding 92 points at a pro-am himself.

Even with some solid amateur competition in Pro-Ams and otherwise, there is still a huge skill and athleticism gap between them and NBA players, and it's clear that NBA players are simply on another level. Seeing NBA players play with non-NBA competition is always interesting, as they are generally able to do extremely well, and it's amazing how good even bench players are in the NBA.
