:man10: Yeah but according to Nash the problem is with having to do that 3-4 times a week.

I'm going to be absolutely honest about this, i respect Nash a lot and i think he did great things for NBA, but honestly i don't care about him no more, just like some of you guys said here, i forgot that he is on team, seriously it feels like he is out forever :man8: and i really don't know how he can heal and come back, i mean if whole summer wasn't enough to recover, i don't know what to say, just buy fishing sticks and enjoy in nature and in your beautiful life, i am not sure that all this work is worth at his age, but than again that shows us that he respect Lakers and he is trying to pay off his huge contract.

It don't matter anymore...he's done. If he comes back, he's not helping us at all...he's old, slow, and can't defend...actually, we might possibly get worse.

I can't believe how much he's dragging this out rather than medically retiring. Clearly his body is not going to allow him to play NBA basketball anymore, dude needs to accept it.

You have nerve damage. Getting muscle strength doesn't repair the damage that was done to the actual nerves.

Nash spoke to a few beat writers for 12 min. or so. He's battling very hard to return, but acknowledged the season could be in jeopardy.

dude needs to be crossing or faking guys out like crazy, because with his reduced speed, dude cant move any where with a ball without a screener 24/7.

We tried to deal Nash for Turk - http://www.usatoday.com/story/sports/nb ... s/4309517/

I'm not sure if our interest lied anywhere besides the fact getting rid of Nash salary with his deal and Paus with Bynum would be huge. He couldn't offer less than Shawne Williams though on some night

No ,there's no other interest except getting rid of their salaries, and if we get lucky, we might get a pick or a young prospect. That's about it. And necessary if you ask me. If we got rid of those two contracts, I'd be ecstatic.

I'd trade Nash for a half of an In and Out Burger. I understand he's not worth the fries, drink, or dressing

He has become such a burden, it's almost like having Luke back on the team. Check that, it is like having Luke back on the team. How worthless has Nash become in his short time here?

His contract is toxic and if he's not playing there is no way we can trade that. Just stupid giving him a 3 year deal.

Glad to see that we were attempting to trade him for Hedo.. That would have been a much better trade & waive deal to get us out of the tax this season than the Gasol for Bynum deal. I think most fans have no expectations of Nash ever contributing to this team again.

Lakers should push him to apply for the "career injury ending" retirement .

As he played less than 10 games , his salary wouldn't count against the cap and we would get under the tax apron

Credit to Larry Coon CBA FAQ

There is one exception whereby a player can continue to receive his salary, but the salary is excluded from team salary. This is when a player suffers a career-ending injury or illness. The team must waive the player, and can apply for this salary exclusion beginning:

If the player played 10 or more games1 in the current season, on the one-year anniversary of the player's last game.
If the player played fewer than 10 games1 in the current season, 60 days after his last game, or the one-year anniversary of his last game in the previous season, whichever is later

Nash won't take a career ending injury this season. He's getting paid and might wonder if he can come back...so it makes no sense. "Pushing" a player to do that would probably be illegal.

^^^Yea it is actually bad. If he comes back and plays more than 10 games, we can't get out of salary via medical retirement.

I'm rooting for Nash to never play another game in a Laker uniform. His contract and his play are a detriment to this team going forward.

He would still get paid ... this money wouldn't count towards the salary cap though

He's done playing pro Ball so yeah it makes sense ... "try to convince" him if you prefer ...
