I'm pretty sure he gets paid a good portion of it. Probably whatever it's insured for, I think I read it was 80%.

The controversy is that if he comes BACK to the NBA his original contract is upheld meaning we'd be on the hook for the 9 million dollars a year even though he's not on our team.

This franchise is blowing cash like there's no tomorrow. I would say amnesty him, but they have a couple of players ahead in line for that to consider.

The climate has just as much to do with health in AZ then the training staff. Something about AZ that helps people cope with health issues. I remember reading about how Doc Holliday went to Arizona to help him live better when he was diagnosed with tuberculosis. Look at Jermaine O'neal. He is another guy who was a walking infirmary the last half decade but this year he looks as healthy as he has been in years.

Thats why blue hairs go there for retirement. And the 300 day a year sun.

I think he still gets paid part of it even if he retires, though I'm not sure exactly how it works.


I dont think he even gets paid 50%. I remember there was a huge controversy regarding this with Portland Darius Miles and then Portland/Brandon Roy last year


Miles got paid cause he was forced to retire due to medical reasons and insurance paid out some and Por. paid the rest, Nash retires just cause he wants to he wont get anything.

I wouldnt worry about the Lakers cash spending. They just signed a 3-5 billion dollar deal with TW.

The Lakers have one more year to figure things out anyways. My hope is if Nash has a repeat next year of health issues, he retires and settles with a buyout so that would free up another 9 mil off the books for the summer of 2014.

2014 will be the summer the lakers really need to get a PG on this team that can ball with Dwight. I have never seen this many amazing PGs in one era in my life. I would like the Lakers to get one of those guys that summer, whoever would be a free agent at the time.

Love Nash, but he needs to retire in the offseason. He can only damage his body further if he continues like this. We'll find another guard to pair with Blake.

I really don't feel like dealing with this next year with our starting PG with Kobe coming back from an achilles injury.

Thanks for trying Steve, but we can't afford to go into next season with both starting PG and SG with injury concerns.

He needs to retire and get traded.

Man right now Nash would in a ideal situation..handling the ball and making plays now that Kobe's not playing. He would have the ball 90% of the time and doing what he does best. Creating plays

Nash is a prime victim to the "D'Antoni run you to the ground" effect.

Baron Davis. Jeremy Lin. Felton. Amare.

He needs to learn to step back minutes for players and use his bench.

I know some people jumped on me saying I'm glad he's not playing but I totally stand by that.

I read that breakdown of why we need Nash on offense and... I totally don't agree. Gasol had great, open looks. Our 3 point shooters were consistently open. Howard found good position and got a lot of dunks and easy points. A stumbling, bumbling Nash is not what we need. Another thing I hate is this sequence of events:

Game X: "WOW NASH IS CRAZY! EVERY SHOT HE TAKES I BELIEVE IS GOING TO GO IN! SO GLAD WE HAVE HIM!"

Game Y: "WTF Nash couldn't buy a bucket. Well, that won't happen often."

Random News Article the Following Day: "Nash indicated that a tight back had caused the shooting slump, but added that he would be 'fine' for tomorrows game."

Bull. Jumpshots are inherently unreliable. Which is why great scorers have other methods to deliver. Nash no longer does. He can't create or penetrate, can't guard and has no chemistry with anyone on the team offensively.

I'm glad he's not playing, win or lose. I genuinely feel the lakers have a better chance to beat Houston if he does not see minutes.

If true then that's unfortunate as he is/was the only other Laker that create his own shot. I was hoping that Nash could but...

dr. klapper is usually the most realistic-but-still-bordering-on-optimistic guys out there, so if he's saying that...ruh roh.

Actually, Pau and Metta can create their own shot, but... do you want to count on them to win playoff games?

Nah, give the ball to Dwight in the post, use Pau as well and try to hit some outside shots. Hustle like it's your last day on Earth. That's pretty much all we can do.

Wow. I thought he was going to okay by the PO's. Guess not. He's our best shooter, too. Crazy. I'm still holding out hope that by some miracle he can be ready.
