Thats only one game. But he had 5 assists in 20 minutes. Cant really complain about that, hes still a great facilitator when hes out there.

I agree Nash still has plenty of value to the team. As long as Farmar gets most of the minutes we are good. Keep in mind that Nash will slowly play his way back into some kind of form. He is great at helping develop Farmar and even Blake. Very humbly I would submit that we have a tendency to overreact here to some degree. My preference would be to see him get some good minutes with the second unit to see how that works. When you get late in the season and the playoffs you can't discount the experience Nash will bring.

Nash looks done. If this is after an offseason of healing up and he cannot play back to back games we need to buy him out IMO. He's taking minutes from guys that can produce as much or more than him that have a chance at staying here for more than 1 year.

It's not one game only though, because I'm going off the whole preseason as well.

Too early to stick a fork in him?

Hes a gametime decision for tonight.

I was praying and hoping he'd retire over the summer. Welp so much for that.

He didn't play much last night. Should play a little. He is good for the first unit.

whether he's done or not, it feels so much more comforting that we have Blake and Farmar instead of Duhon and Morris when Nash gimps on us

Well.... this was his first regular season game after a summer in which he supposedly rested and healed up..... and he can't play in a back to back after taking most of the second half off?....

I'd say put him on the bench so as to not constantly be messing with the starting line ups.... if he can play/contribute that's great.... if not then it doesn't constantly push people in and out of the starting line up as such an important position.

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 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.
