Steve Nash hints retirement: 'NBA game is just a touch too far for me'
|by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com|
|(10:04 am ET) Lakers guard Steve Nash hinted that his NBA career is likely over while making an appearance on TSN Radio 1040 on Tuesday. Nash admitted that the wear-and-tear of his body can no longer handle game action.
"Unfortunately the NBA game is just a touch too far for me," Nash said. "I play one game and I'm out a month. I have a bunch of back things going on that compromise that nerve.
"I never worked as hard as I did the last 18 months, two years, twice a day almost every day to try to just give it that one last year," Nash said. "And I finally just had to admit that it’s just not meant to be."
Nash, 41, was ruled out for the 2014-15 season with recurring nerve issues in his back. He is owed $9.7 million this year before he becomes an unrestricted free agent at the end of the season. The eight-time NBA All-Star has career averages of 14.3 points, 8.5 assists and 3.0 rebounds over 18 seasons.
Steve Nash to mentor young Lakers
|by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com|
|(1/29/15) Lakers guard Steve Nash will be around to mentor the team's young players, according to ESPN.
Since being ruled out for the season, Nash hasn't been a presence with the club. When asked about the situation, coach Byron Scott indicated that he's had a hard time getting in touch with Nash. That hasn't been a problem for Lakers general manager Mitch Kupchak, though.
"He’s around," Kupchak said. "He will work with some of our players. He may have already started doing that. He’s not going to go out and advertise [but] he’s doing it. ... As the season progresses, he’ll be more engaged."
The 40-year-old Nash was limited to just 15 games last season due to various injuries.
Report: Lakers eye Celtics PG Rondo in trade for Nash, picks
|by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com|
|(12/18/14) Dallas is apparently not the only team trying to trade for Celtics point guard Rajon Rondo. The Lakers have offered Boston multiple draft picks and veteran point guard Steve Nash for him, according to ESPN.com.
Rondo has been healthy and productive this season. He is averaging just 8.5 points per game, but leads the NBA at 10.8 steals and is at a career-high 7.5 rebounds per game.
Lakers coach Byron Scott, Steve Nash still not communicating
|by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com|
|(12/1/14) Since vetern point guard Steve Nash was declared out for the season on Oct. 23, he and coach Byron Scott have still not been able to speak, according to the L.A. Times.
Nash, 40, who is making $9.7 million this year, has not been around the Lakers' facility, which is drawing some questions for the front office, as they would like him to possibly mentor rookie point guard Jordan Clarkson.
Some of Nash's actions, though, have irritated Lakers followers, most notably posting an Instagram video of himself whacking a golf ball at a driving range, according to the report.
"Steve's a busy guy and I'm a busy guy as well," Scott said. "We're missing each other. I don't think he misses sleep over it and I don't miss any sleep over it, you know? He's a great guy. I've known Steve for a long time, so for us to not be able to get in contact with one another at this particular time, to me it's not a big deal."
Report: Lakers awarded disabled player exception for Steve Nash
|by R.J. White | CBSSports.com|
|(11/25/14) The Lakers have been awarded a $4.85-million disabled player exception for Steve Nash, ESPN reports.
The exception will allow the Lakers to add a player either in trade or free agency despite being over the salary cap. Nash will miss the season due to nerve damage in his back.
|This year should be the swan song of Steve Nash's career, and it's probably safest to avoid him on Draft Day. He was only healthy enough for 20 minutes per game in 15 appearances on the year last season, and he'll turn 41 in February. Any productive games Nash puts together over the course of the season will be nice for a fond farewell or two, but ultimately he won't be worth a spot on your roster. On Draft Day, consider Nash already retired for Fantasy purposes.
