Steve Nash Discussion: Retiring; Lakers Disabled Exception

It's not like Steve Nash is bed-ridden. He's making $9M to try to heal so he can play his 18th season as a professional athlete. He can still live a fantastically fulfilling life. I support him, and I'd like to see him come back healthy and play at a high level, but I think he will be unable to do so.

He'll return in February, only to play 2 or 3 games at most, before his body breaks down again. After that, he's gonna retire.

Well at least that's my prediction.

Steve Nash ran through some deliberate dribbling drills at Lakers shoot-around in Dallas. Aiming for early February return, via @bill_oram.

Awesome! Maybe he can sustain 10 minutes of dribbling now!

Responses here are hilarious...wow. All he is going to is come back long enough making himself ineligible for medical retirement. W

I don't care how mean it sounds, I dread Nash updates, I don't want him to play another game as a Laker.

Nash is a great player and in a limited player can still be effective. He just has to be healthy and I doubt he will be this year for more than a few games

I doubt he can even play in limited minutes, plus any minutes given to him, is minutes taken away from Marshall.

Nash hasn't been able to sprint/go full speed (back/nerve issues) but it's sure fun to watch him shoot.

Been watching Steve Nash shoot threes, free throws and pull-up elbow jumpers for three minutes. He hasn't missed.


Off dribble, fading, pull-up...Nash never misses. Such a shame he hasn't been able to get healthy for game action.

Such a waste, obviously at the time we acquired Nash; a lot of people were excited.... now he isn't even sure if he's gonna play another game... like Weezy said... I don't want him to play another game as a Laker.

D'Antoni hopes Kobe, Nash return Jan. 28 vs. Indy, right after Lakers' 12-day road trip: "Hopefully both of them are ready."

I wish Kobe would take more time off and be absolutely positively 100% before he came back. If losing 9 straight games to go to 14-31 on the season could make Kobe take more time and not push to come back to soon, then so be it. We need him healthy next season, this season is a waste as is.

Nash just stay in Vancouver.

seriously, why should either come back at all by then. After that 12 gm road trip this team should be contending for top 5 pick by then already. Dam gota seriously give major props to Pho staff, Nash/Grant Hill were solid during their Pho career in terms of staying relatively healthy and playing. As soon as they left, both ended up getting hurt for long periods of time.

I don't blame 'em. We've won too many games so far to get into the tank race. We need to try to make the playoffs to make ourselves somewhat attractive to prospective FA's.

we're only 4 wins ahead of Orl for worse record, its never to late and the bottom feeders right now range from 13-15 wins. We're much closer to tanking than the playoffs, lets get real and after this 12 game road trip without those 2, come on lets get real here.

Tell that to Kobe, Nash, Blake, Farmar, Xavier and the other players, some of whom want to return on January 28th.

If they return, and they play even 75% of what they're capable of, this tanking strategy isn't going to happen.

It would be easy to tell them to sit out if they weren't playing on 1 year contracts. Unfortunately, besides Nash and Kobe, most of them are doing just that. They aren't going to sit out when their careers are possibly on the line.

Henry and the other 1yr contract guys can go ahead and play their butts off and we're still gona lose most of the time. Its not even tanking IMO, I'm just saying at the rate they're going after this 12 gm road trip, Nash/Kobe coming back will only hurt our chances at a better pick. I'm not even seeing your point of view of "winning to many games" at this point when we're only 2 games ahead of Utah for worse in the West.
