Yep. Never thought I'd see the day when Nash was essentially useless in his minutes on the floor. Sad.

Father Time remains unbeaten. Sigh... Maybe, Nash can regain something after a few months or after a third of the season. At his age, healing takes longer.

At this going rate, Steve Nash will soon run out of body parts that doesn’t ail him.

No, he’s hasn’t suffered last season’s nightmare yet when he missed a combined 32 games because of a fractured left leg and had ongoing issues with his hamstring and back. Nash still reminds himself that his rhythm feels good. He remains convinced the conversation surrounding the Lakers’ 91-85 loss Friday to the San Antonio Spurs at Staples Center would’ve shifted differently had he fared better than five points on one of eight shooting and five assists in 23 minutes.

But as another game goes by, so too, does another injury.

“The quad got bumped a bunch of times,” Nash said. “I was a bit limited.”

Dude just retire. This is beyond annoying. Every game something happens.

A bit limited?

Well, that's an understatement.

Watching him get beat on defense doesn't bother me, but missing 15 footers and wearing full warm-ups in crunch time makes me sad.

his last season in phoenix (11-12) he actually wasn't bad at all. yeah he had clearly lost a step but he averaged 12 points and 11 assists on the season

then he comes to LA and completely falls apart

It's always something; as others said/felt, retire, and give open us a roster spot, so we could potentially could sign somebody that could be useful.

He's done. We saw it last year when Kobe had to take over the offense. He really can't create much anymore on his own. He can still make nice passes when they are there but he struggles to free himself even with a screen. At least last year he was making shots but now he brings nothing.

To be honest I dont care about this season, its already lost one but next year Steve Nash need to retire bc he is not capable to play anymore.....he is hurting this team a lot bc he cant defend anything and now he cant even make that mid range jumpers. I am all for it if he wants to be lets say shooting coach or take PG and coach them...well he can even be in our coaching staff but playing time is over. I dont know whats gonna happen if he retire with his salary. Salary will be in the books or not???

Darius Morris 'aint walkin' through that door! :man9: :man10: Seriously, though, when Steve Blake makes you look awful (and don't get me started on that schmendrick with a dead animal on his head) it's time to hang it up YESTERDAY! When Jodie Meeks is the bright spot on the team, it's time to rethink your inks. :man3:

Seriously, Antoni needs to start playing more of Hill, Kaman and even Sacre and Harris. Play bigger, small ball is NOT working. Also, maybe cut Shawne Williams...he has replaced Marcus Landry as the guy who can't shoot at the stretch 4 position. Stretch 4, that's kind of fitting...because it's a stretch to think it will work with this team :disagree:
The End is nigh. Time for a total Cut and Shuffle. Kobe contract was a mistake...time to avoid making more. The future is here, whether we want it to be or not. An era is over, but for the death rattle, and it's time for the cycle to begin anew. Growth and change are scary and painful, but alas...nothing worth achieving comes easily.

I'm not going to give up on Shawne Williams after 3 games, come on, slumps happen, it's 3 games. Blake, yeah, he constantly sucks now, and Nash is done.

Knew it would be hard to watch Nash on defense, never thought it would be just as hard when he is on offense.

In a league where teams are increasing built around PGs who are fast enough to break the sound barrier, it doesn't take a basketball genius to see Nash is a non-starter.

Or when you have only two players (Nash and Gasol) who have any business being starters on an NBA team and both players are old and slow.

How depressing is that? :bang:

Well, Gasol at least has an over 20 PER and looks like he belongs out there. Nash is so done it's sad and pathetic at this point. We have officially become the Jets/Vikings and Nash is Brett Favre...hang it up, dude...you're done.
