@LakersReporter: A consistent problem Nash mentioned all season/reiterated on @ESPNLA710 was Howard's being unwilling/uninterested in running pick and roll.




Coward left us for a team whose number 1 option is one of the best PNR players in the league ... :man10:

@KevinDing: Steve Nash on Dwight Howard: "If he doesn’t want to be here, we don’t want someone who’s unhappy." #lakers


I don't know how long they will keep asking our players about Dwight, but I like the answer anyway.

I don't know how much Nash is a part of our future plans, but I really do hope we can somehow win a ring with the guy.

I still believe in Nash, he was injured last season & was never healthy. With the Coward gone, now we can play our game not worrying about giving him his touches so he doesn't cry. I remember our game vs the Brooklyn Nets our offense ran really smooth & we weren't as deep as we were this year.

That Brooklyn game was one of Nash's best games all season. If we can get anything close to that Nash, our offense we'll run so efficiently. Whoever our starting SG/SF is during the season, (assuming Kobe can't start) the key is providing the spacing for Nash to operate, so they must hit their open shots. Either PF/Center set the screen to run Pick & Roll and shooters spread out; that's when Steve's at his best, IMO.

Wow that's just a wee bit unfair considering the freak broken leg in the 2nd game that started the whole chain of events.

I agree with both of you. I'm disappointed that he couldn't contribute more but at least he tried to go out there and gut it out. That's something you can't say about you know who.

I don't think his numbers are an accurate reflection of the season he had.. The numbers didn't fall off but he didn't pass the eye test at all.. Never looked comfortable or confident.. I'm sure alot of it had to do with his health & adapting to a new team, but the lack of chemistry probably played a large part too.. It just always seemed like he could be doing more than he was.. Hopefully we see him firing on all cylinders this year with a team that should fit him better & have much better chemistry..

Steve Nash might pay ex-wife more

PHOENIX -- An Arizona appellate court says Los Angeles Lakers star Steve Nash may have to pay additional child support for his three children and that he and his ex-wife can't say bad things about each other through social media.

A Court of Appeals panel's ruling Tuesday says a judge must consider ordering Nash to pay more than the children's "basic needs."

The court also upheld a judge's order barring the couple from disparaging each other through social media.

It said Alejandra Amarilla Nash used her Twitter account to make a "biting criticism" of Nash after their divorce was granted.

The ruling says the order doesn't violate her free-speech rights because both agreed to limit their speech under their joint custody agreement.

The couple divorced in 2011. They have a son and two daughters.

Lakers' Steve Nash to try out for Inter Milan

Steve Nash believes Kobe Bryant is ahead of schedule in his recovery from Achilles' surgery, is hopeful that the Los Angeles Lakers will finally find the chemistry they lacked a year ago and is finding himself fueled by the memories of an injury-filled season.

On Tuesday, however, basketball won't be his sport of choice.
The two-time NBA MVP gets to become a soccer player again - if only briefly.
The Lakers guard who grew up playing soccer and still has deep ties within the sport will have a tryout of sorts with Inter Milan, before the storied team opens play in the Guinness International Champions Cup tournament that's coming to the U.S. next week. The tournament features eight club teams from around the world, with a winner to be crowned in Miami Gardens, Fla. on Aug. 7.

''It's a dream come true to get a chance to try out, not just to try out but to take the field with Inter Milan, one of the great, storied franchises in professional sports,'' Nash said in an interview with The Associated Press. ''I feel like a little kid.''
Tournament officials said the tryout will take place in New Jersey, two days before Inter Milan opens its portion of the Guinness event in Indianapolis against Chelsea. And Nash expects to be feeling a fairly ramped-up level of nervousness when he laces up his cleats for that training session.
''It's going to be a lot higher than it is playing basketball, for sure,'' Nash said. ''I still get nervous for basketball games from time to time. When I get out on the court, I don't get nervous, but before. To go out there with guys that I look up to and watch play, it's definitely going to raise the nerves. I'll be really nervous and really excited.''

The tournament begins Saturday when AC Milan visits Valencia. Juventus and Everton meet Wednesday in another first-round game, with the other opening matchups being the Inter-Chelsea game and Real Madrid taking on the L.A. Galaxy on Thursday.
The European clubs are primarily using the event as preseason training and the matches will allow for many more substitutions than normal, as is common with exhibition matches.
''Guinness has kind of taken it to another level by making a tournament out of it,'' Nash said. ''There's stakes involved. For Guinness to bring seven of the world's biggest clubs over and play with the Galaxy, that's phenomenal exposure for the game and it'll help grow the game in North America.''

Nash played soccer and hockey as a child before starting his basketball career as an eighth-grader, primarily because most of his friends at the time were spending more time taking corner jumpers than corner kicks. His father, John, played professional soccer in South Africa and England, and Nash remains an avid soccer fan and is part of the ownership group for the Vancouver Whitecaps of Major League Soccer.
As far as his ''real job'' goes, Nash said he's encouraged for the coming NBA season. He's working his way back to being 100 percent physically. His first season with the Lakers was an injury-filled one, where he was limited to 50 games because of a broken left leg and a strained right hamstring.
''I've had a really good summer of training and rehabilitating,'' Nash said. ''I'm not 100 percent, but I'm pretty close. Good enough to go out there Tuesday. I'm thrilled I've had this time to build myself back up, and I believe I'll have a great year.''

Last season was a struggle for the Lakers, and the offseason hasn't exactly been tranquil, either. Dwight Howard left Los Angeles for Houston, Bryant has been working his way through rehabilitation for his Achilles', and the Lakers added new pieces like Chris Kaman, Nick Young and Wesley Johnson.
''We're all just excited for another opportunity,'' Nash said. ''We've got some terrific players coming off of difficult seasons. I know Pau Gasol after his injuries, Kobe's coming off a difficult injury, I was injured for the better part of the season. The three of us are eager to get back out there and there's other guys, Jordan Hill, Steve Blake, who missed a lot of time last year.
''We're excited to see what we can make of ourselves. We really are going to try for the second consecutive year to find chemistry and identity, but we're excited for it, so we'll see.''
Nash said he isn't letting go of the bad memories from last season, using them instead as motivation for the coming year.
And when the new season starts, he said he wouldn't be at all surprised to see Bryant - who tore his Achilles' tendon in April - not just ready, but raring to go.
''I don't think he'd have it any other way,'' Nash said. ''I know he's very focused and determined and he plans to come back as strong as ever, probably in record time.''

If he does I hope we can void his contract. I'd be livid if he got hurt and we had to suffer for it.

He obviously doesn't care about the upcoming season. I can't see him doing this if we were in the hunt for a title next year.

Nash mum on retirement plans

The 2013-14 season will be the 18th year in the NBA for Steve Nash and he was asked when he may call it quits since this will be that final campaign for fellow 1996 draft selections Derek Fisher and Jermaine O'Neal. It could also be the final seasons for Ray Allen and Marcus Camby.

"I don't really want to think about it," Nash told ESPNLosAngeles.com Tuesday. "I want to concentrate on this season and have a great season and then next year I'll worry about next year. After that there's a chance I could keep playing, but I'm totally open to not playing or playing again and I don't really want to predict. I just want to concentrate on the now and worry about the future when it arrives."

Nash is signed through 2014-15, however there is a very good chance the Los Angeles Lakers will release him next year and stretch the remaining $9.7 million owed to him as a way to create as much salary cap room to go after the top free agents.

Nash has as many seasons as Payton and this will be one fewer than Kidd's career. I can't see him playing beyond 2014-15, but I'd love to see him go out on a high note. Challenge this season and win it next season. Then ride off.
