Steve Nash spent six wonderful seasons in Dallas before moving back to a more arid climate in Arizona. But Dallas clearly left it's mark on the two-time MVP. Or rather, Dallas' party culture caught his eye. While with the Mavs, Nash was seen hitting the town with his good friend Dirk Nowitzki imbibing with the locals. Rumor has it that the duo frequented the now closed bar The Loon in Dallas' Uptown neighborhood.

After partying in Dallas for years, the next step is to research the city's partying past, clearly. Well, that's just what Nash is doing with his latest project. According to Variety, Nash has signed on to be an executive producer of a new documentary chronicling "the origins of the global rave movement in 1980s Dallas during the era of legal ecstasy, known as 'Molly.'"

Whoa there, Steve. You're trying to slip us some X? I mean, we like a good time and you are, like, super popular but we're not sure we're ready to take that plunge...into the history of Dallas' party scene. You better make a convincing argument.

"Having played in Dallas for six years, I was drawn to this project for its relationship with the city," Nash told Variety. "After poring over the material I found an incredibly unique story with so many vibrant characters and a bold history known as the origin to the rave scene ecstasy culture. Its footprints are now all over the world."

Alright, we're sold.

But, we're also curious as to what Nash would have looked like in the scene back in the 80s. We'll probably never know but at least we'll always have this image to hold near and dear to our hearts.
