Is it wrong that I just want him to stay off the floor, for good? His crappy play AND 'Antoni's loyalty to him has been hurting this team.

Nope. He's not right. Hasn't been at all this year. Agreed that his bad play has really hurt the team. That starting lineup was terrible. I really hope he hangs it up. Or at least don't come back until you can really play and not look like a shadow of your former self. It doesn't help us, it hinders us.

Unfortunately, Nash does hinder us tremendously when he's out there due to his deteriorating health. He's also taking time away from the young talent that we could be developing. With his departure from the lineup for awhile, this is a time for other players to seize the opportunity and take advantage of it. I don't see Nash coming back until January/February...

The truth is he needs to retire. He's not cut out for this game anymore. When you've got nerve damage coming from both directions of your nerve, that kind of pain just doesn't go away. You don't just lose it. As soon as you start playing again, it comes back.

He needs to retire. For himself and for the team he needs to just let it go. The problem is guys like Kobe and Nash don't get that. They keep going until their body does something crazy and they can't. Nash won't stop until his leg falls off. Simple as that. That could mean this week, it could mean two months from now... I hope it doesn't mean until the end of his contract...

Even if Steve Nash is not "done," the Lakers other guards, Blake, Farmer, Meeks and Young, are simply better.

I like Nash out there BECAUSE he hurts the team. We have a better shot at a high draft pick with him on the floor. :man10:

With their being talks about Toronto dumping Gay & supposedly Morey wanting Amir Johnson for Asik, I think there's a good possibility for a 3rd team to step in & take Asik.. Hopefully we can talk Toronto into Nash for Asik, even if it means giving up Pau to eat Gay's contract..

Why in the world would you want Asik? An overpaid solid role player who's making 14 mio. next year. No thanks. Simply hope for retirement or use the stretch provision. You can spend that money much better than this.

why dont they just release him?

i'm sure another team picks him up and that way the lakers are off the hook for the rest of his contract correct?

Mike Bresnahan ‏@Mike_Bresnahan 4h
Steve Nash doing some light shooting today at Lakers' practice facility. Still at least a week from returning (sore back).


A week...yeah, right. A week means at least a month...

well, he may be right--this could happen to a younger player. but that younger player may also be forced into retirement.

Lies. Not to mention nerve damage coming from both ends of the nerve is debilitating no matter how old you are.

I'd be willing to bet Nash's decade plus history of back problems had more to do with his problem now than his fractured leg.

Nerve root irritation most commonly results from a structure close to a nerve, such as a joint, ligament and/or muscle, which has sustained accumulative strain which results in swelling and inflammation.

I can't help but feel bad for the guy.. He spent his entire career being the ultimate teammate & making everyone around him better.. When he finally got a chance to win his body gave out on him & now most of us wish he was never a Laker.. I'd be willing to bet he would have a much easier time retiring if he was still in Phx.. He still wants to contribute to this team & win the fanbase over so he doesn't go out on a sour note.

@PeterVecsey1: I'm hearing Nash's pain is forcing him 2 seriously consider calling it a career. He'd still get $ this yr & next & LA'd get cap relief next

https://twitter.com/petervecsey1/status ... 4640458752

I would hate to see a person go out like this against their own terms (Malone, Mutumbo, Vlade, Zo, Shaq) but it would put us in a much better position moving forward. That 9.7 million in 2014 can bring in some good free agents or be used to retain guys from this team like Young, Meeks, Wes, Blake, X, Farmar, Hill if they continue to play well.

Him retiring changes the game all together. He can stick around the team and locker room as a Laker ambassador and work with the guys like he's obviously taught. Blake some tricks but his playing days are up

Actually, that would be a good idea. That, or shooting coach. Because the guy is one of the best shooters in NBA history.

I truly hope he pulls the trigger on retirement. The team isn't going to win a championship, so he should really just hang it up. Best thing for him and best thing for our team going forward with salary cap relief next year.

Asst coach to Mike or some other coach next year. He is one of the smartest players ever and it would be great to have him on coaching staff.

Please do it. Having next to nothing in committed salary next year would be awesome.

I mean besides him the only other people officially with contracts are Sacre and Harris, but they're non-guaranteed and easily bought out if we want to.

We could have no people on our roster with the only commitments being our salary holds.
