He's had a lot of "lazy" passes where it gets deflected or turned over.

Uncharacteristic of him. I know he's trying to make the nice looking play, but he needs to go with the pass the works.

It is the second game of the season and he only played 21 minutes last night... game time decision? Jeez.

He was one of the weakest links out there so whatever.

It seems like he's going with what he's used to and not adapting to today's game. Can't teach an old dog new tricks, I suppose. :man5:

I've been the biggest Nash supporter since day 1, but I think a buyout is all but guaranteed this off-season.

He is done. If he's not "healthy" at this point after this much time resting, he's in his 40s and he won't get better. He will only get worse. I wonder how D'Antoni will handle having to bench him later in the season since Farmar is obviously better at this point. D'Antoni owes his career to Nash.

Steve Nash will not play tonight vs. GS. Lakers officially implementing Rest Nash plan. He'll sit out one game every back-to-back set.

Steve Nash won't play tonight. Steve Blake and Jodie Meeks will start in the backcourt


Meeks?!?

The Phoenix training staff did wonders for him for years. Nash has long-standing back issues and they were very proactive in monitoring his bio-mechanics, quickly correcting and apparent flaws so they wouldn't mushroom into bigger problems. Maybe time has finally caught up with him or the lakers training staff is not as good as that of the Suns'

Depends how you view it............

Nash as in the old Nash and his style of play.......ya stick a fork in that....he's 40+ lol

Nash if you use him like a Steve Kerr type of role and use him as a floor spacer...... he can still do that and have great value to a team...... especially if you add his ability to mentor a guy like say Farmar and give him some tricks to his trade......

Depends what you are asking the guy to do but obviously the writing is on the wall....nobody beats father time lol

.... and anyone who disagrees with resting him on back to backs is fooling themselves lol .....

IMO they better do that with Bryant too when he gets back or else face the consequences of father times wrath...

The guy is not worth the money we are playing him now.....that's for sure..... but neither is the coach IMO...but I digress lol

Steve Nash $9,300,500 $9,701,000......and for what???? to sit b2b games....if you cant play then retire my old friend......whats the point in this really....we should give farmar starting role and just rest nash until season is over. His game hurting this team, well hurting would be nice he cant even walk in right way...i hate players when they want to play when they are not capable to play any more

i've been resisting, but...fork. he didn't look super sharp for most of the preseason, and he's perpetually injured at this point. hopefully, he salvages dignity and retires rather than opting in next summer.

Time for us to "buy him out" IMO. Having him here puts pressure on MDA to play him. This isn't a team that is close to doing anything of significance this season.... I'd rather use the time to hone younger players that may be able to help us rebuild rather than change the Depends on someone hanging on for a check. Buy him out and be done with it.

While I agree, it's never gonna happen. We should buy him out and trade Pau, and I would have said that before last night's debacle. There is no saving this season, so we might as well go down hard rather than limp along.

Don't know what to say about Nash. Guess we got him 2 years too late. He's a great personality but he can't bring it on the hardwood anymore...... :man6:

I heard Ireland saying something interesting yesterday. He stated that Nash is trying to get into a place where he is healthy enough to play at a high level; not anything new, right...however, me also mentioned if Nash doesn't healthy within the next couple of months, he thinks Nash knows inside, he won't stick around. At least to me, it intimated that Nash might retire during the season, but I might be wrong. Nevertheless, I think if he's not healthy by the Trade Deadline, he is either retiring or traded...

I would hope he retires at the end of the this season, but if not at least we have the stretch provision to use. I understand he wants to be fully healthy and may take things slow, only thing is it just doesn't appear as if he can remain 100% healthy anymore.

A couple people said yesterday that he might retire some time during the season if he realizes his body can't do this any more.

That'd be good. I'm not sure, but I think a retired player's salary needs some time to clear the books if he's leaving for medical purposes or something... The sooner he gets on that, the better. It's time for him to hang 'em up.

He should sit out indefinitely until he's 100%. Don't know why he's forcing himself now. Let the young guns run.
