Los Angeles, CA – Steve Nash attended the bar mitzvah for LA teen Mike Feinberg despite not being Jewish. Steve Nash is the point guard for the Los Angeles Lakers team that is battling to hold onto the final spot in the Western Conference playoffs. But why would Steve Nash attend a 13-year-old’s bar mitzvah?
As previously reported by The Inquisitr, a recent Lakers win brought the team back to .500. Kobe Bryant injured himself, but some say this might actually improve their playoffs odds of winning, making good on Bryant’s playoff guarantee. The Lakers are projected to meet the San Antonio Spurs in the playoffs, who have the second best record in the NBA.
Steve Nash has averaged 14.4 points and 8.5 assists per game during his illustrious career, but this year those numbers are down to 12.7 points and 6.8 assists, but his 3-point range shots are averaging 44 percent. Not as good as his peak from 2004 through 2006 when he won multiple NBA MVP awards, but still pretty good.
Steve Nash is attending a bar mitzvah because of his friendship with Jeffrey Feinberg, the father of the new 13 year old. Jeffrey Feinberg is a big-time basketball fan with many friends in the NBA, including Steve Nash.
But how did Jeffrey Feinberg make so many high profile friends? It turns out Jeffrey Feinberg is the former executive of the Soros Fund Management, with George Soros being worth about $19 billion. Jeffrey Feinberg branched out to create his own company called JLF Asset Management and he’s become wealthy enough to attempt to purchase the Brooklyn Nets in 2009.
So, in short, Steve Nash attended the bar mitzvah due to the billionaire connection. What do you think about this NBA star fulfilling the dreams of any teenage basketball fan?
