Goran Dragic has some big shoes to fill.

Dragic has the task of making Phoenix Suns fans forget the memories of one of the greatest players to ever wear a Suns jersey, Steve Nash.

Nash, a two-time MVP, ran the point for the last eight years in Phoenix and was the catalyst during the golden age of Suns basketball.

Dragic knows how important Nash was in Phoenix, mostly because he has played the majority of his NBA career in the Suns Franchise.

The Suns sent Dragic away in a trade two seasons ago for Aaron Brooks, and is now making his return to the desert under a new set of circumstances.

Dragic now has a chance to return to the franchise where he was once the understudy to Nash, but now as the No.1 point guard.
