he screwed the lakers over in the playoffs 7-8 years ago and now he's screwing them over again. i guess it'll just take a real serious injury to get him to finally retire

How is he screwing us? Why should he just give it up? Would You? Would Pau? Would Kobe? Every person with the passion/love for the game would do and try anything to play (even if looking from the side things looks just stupid). Hell, if Nash is screwing us, Kobe screwed us even more with his new contract :man12: Let him play out the season and hire him as a coach next year.

I will say this about what Nash is doing….. He's smart enough to know that he s never going to play at his previous level every again. His injury and condition is chronic and won't get better. He's on a last place team that has no future in his contract term. Those three facts alone make me wonder why he's hanging on other than the money. There really is no other answer from a competitive standpoint.

well, who in the world wanted nash in the first place? a 38 yr old PG at the time.

although sessions didnt fit our roster, i was glad we were heading towards getting younger.

i was really appalled by the nash decision, i rather of just kept fish. but i would be lying if i wasnt curious/a bit excited to see how nash was going to turn out, but from the beginning i knew it was just a selling point for dwight.


i always thought Mo Williams fit our style, a younger fisher type PG that can play well off the ball and can spot up shoot and make timely shots at the right time.

im not praising Mo, its just that hes a younger fisher type of player, and kobe during those years fisher was gone, could of used a player like that.

sessions was horrible fit, just for the fact that hes not a spot up shooter, he missed a bunch of open threes because thats not his game (while he was with us)

nash is a great 3pt shooter, but he also wasnt efficient just being a spot up when kobe was ball handling.

we need proven players that fit well with our roster. Mo isnt great defensively, but hes better than nash, younger than fish, and has adequate play making skills and vision.


i always thought he'd be a perfect fit with kobe. but then again, we should of had CP3.


but i was never high on Nash, i'm not one that always says "hes old and hes done" but the whole notion of getting rid of fisher and gettin sessions and getting younger the season before, i thought we took two steps back.


anyone notice the season before he signed with the lakers he was fine, but all of a sudden when he comes to our team, he needs a screen just to get past half court?

yeah more of a reassurance to howard saying we have a future HOF pass first PG on the team, dont worry you'll get yours.


nobody expected dwight to start doing dope and think he was the next coming of hakeem calling for the ball in the post to either brick, airball, get stripped, turn over by a late pass, or completely miss every freethrow.

and Nash won't play in the 2nd half.
For what it's worth, the Lakers also clinched the Pacific Division, an achievement Bryant dismissed by saying "We don't hang divisions." No, only the big NBA championship banners are considered wall-worthy for the Lakers.

Dude needs to hang em up. He's essentially rehabbed for half a year and still can't play longer than a week.

I hope so, because all he is doing is taking minutes away from Marshall and his development. Nash goes out, Marshall starts the 2nd half and immediately starts rolling.

Time to go Nash. He gave it a go, it's not working,

Helljumper wrote:I'm gonna give Nash the benefit of the doubt. Everyone thought he was stupid for coming back at all, but he proved everyone wrong and has looked good in the games he's played so far. (Not good as in he's an elite player or anything, but he's at least competent, and to me that's a good enough reason for him to continue playing since it's clear he loves the game so much). Until I see otherwise, I'm going to assume that what happened in the last game was minor and he left the game for precautionary reasons. If he comes back and is significantly hampered in the next game or shows that he can't sustain playing in NBA games for much longer then I'll change my tune, but as of now, that's not the case. I get the frustration with the whole 10 game medical retirement rule, but the Nash hate on here is really unfair.


All right dude, just retire ...

we should do him a solid and trade him back to Pho for the TPE again, no asset needed from Pho :man10: ...trade would be based on fact that Nash promise to retire as a Sun, sorta how we did to Fox when we traded him to Bos

Going back to Pheonix will allow him to play 5 more years and re-sign with the Lakers to end his career !

So with Nash playing his 10th game, even if he qualifies for medical retirement from this point on & never plays again, his salary doesn't stop counting against the cap until 1 year from today, correct?

Nash: "Well, I think exactly 10 games was enough to tell me that my body is done. I'll accept that medical retirement thingy.
Mitch: "Ya think......."
Nash: "Yup. BTW, how many games was it that allowed you guys to take my salary off the cap next year if I take the medical retirement....11, 12 games right?"
Mitch: "Nope......it was 10 games, Steve....10.
Nash: "Oh, my bad, lol."
