We all knew here that his target was to play 10 games this season to secure his money way before this video.
Don't let sad music in background fool you, Nash isn't Laker anymore, he is just milking us like cow, and that's reality.
Ship him out of team ASAP.

It's all crap. If he accepts medical retirement he can still get the money he needs for child support, he just doesn't hurt our franchise any more. And if he loves the game that much, I'm sure we'd hire him back (or someone would) as a player development coach right away. He's too smart not to do something like that.

But this? This is bull****. He's just a selfish guy that doesn't give two rips about what's going on with this team and this company.

10 million dollar meal ticket from our incompetent FO, why the hell wouldn't he stick on for that? And this just confirms to me that his goal was to play 10 games this season and be done with it.

There is no use playing him next season, there is no use for him to even be around, write him his check and tell him to stay at home. We need to build towards the future, not let a guy hang on for 10 million and decide every 15 games he wants to try and play 2 games.

He can't play back to backs, he can't play over 20 minutes, he can't play more than 2 games in a week. He's just a road block right now.

I guess 'Antoni and Nash don't speak much or something.

@janiscarr: So Nash thinks he can play this season, but D'Antoni says he's done. Interesting...

Rumor has it Nash has a new agent: Latrell Sprewell.

Let there be pipe!!!

Seriously, it's unfortunate what's happened to Nash starting with that collision with Damon Lillard that opened last season. He was okay up until then, but since then, it's been unrelentingly bad. It's a good move, actually works for the Lakers since Lebron isn't leaving Miami and there's really no other FA worth a big deal other than Melo and his value is debatable. So Gasol is gone, they can afford some signings and still stay under the cap.

May as well go for the playoffs next year as the team has already traded away its 2015 first round pick.

Of course he wants the money, who wouldn't want $9 million? Best scenario now is that we can field a pretty good team for next season and he can contribute.

I find it very hard to blame Nash. Instead I would rather blame our idiotic front office. Nash collecting 9 million next year for nothing will show everyone who isnt familiar with the Lakers just how stupid the people running this organization now are.

Haven't seen it yet, but I'm sure some interesting stuff is said during the nearly 90 minute interview.

Nobody likes somebody doing no work and helping himself to pie. Nash is helping himself to ten million dollars worth of Laker pie, and there is a salary cap on this pie. Go procreate with yourself as part of your rehab.I am now going to watch the Steve Ca$h interview and watch inception. Hopefully one of these two things will make sense by the end.

Not sure how true all this is, but from that latest interview Nash was saying that he probably wouldn't even be eligible for the medical retirement anyways. That's for players who suffer a career-ending injury and can't return. Apparently the NBA has committees and investigators who look into that kind of stuff. Nash made it sound like he'd probably be ineligible since he was playing well a few games before Game 10, and technically his latest injury was more of a minor setback which he's being held out for as more of a precaution and the FO's desire to examine the younger prospects. He said he didn't even know about the 10 game rule until an interviewer asked him about it on the day of his 10th game and so he went to talk to Vitti about it but Vitti said that ethically the team can't have that conversation with him.

we gave him a contract and ya'll are crying bc he wants to play it through?

calling him greedy and selfish is hilarious. if you could play through your contract, you would. would you walk away from your job just because someone else can do it better? does neurosurgeon A think to himself, well, this new young guy neurosurgeon B is really effing good, let me step down? you have to be kidding me.

where is the sense of personal responsibility? accept his situation and move on to other ways the lakers can improve. to focus on blaming X person as responsible for a lack of success is a loser's mentality and immature. it makes little sense to call a guy selfish for trying to fulfill his obligation to the organization that signed him. it is selfish on the org's part, especially one associated with success, to expect one of their own to just quit. you didn't hire a guy because he could quit easily. the "no quit" mentality is why you hired him in the first place.

What an awful example. I'd hope to God a neurosurgeon would step down if he knew he wasn't performing his job as well as he could. That's a matter of extreme precision. Why would he keep doing his job long after he knew someone else could do it better? In fact, why did he get to that point? He should have been promoted at that age.

you missed the point
these guys are competitors
if nash can physically play through his contract he will.
if nash can compete he will.
nash, nor anyone else in the nba, backs down because someone is currently playing better than them. they play to prove to themselves that they can beat them.

kobe didn't look at his teammates of kwame, smush, and luke walton, and go, damn i might as well not play today. steve is injured, but he's not ready to hang up his laces yet.
