Though he has yet to confirm his retirement, Steve Nash is under no delusions when it comes to the fact that his NBA career is at its end. The Los Angeles Lakers point guard joined the The Bro Jake Show on TSN Radio 1040 Vancouver on Tuesday morning and pulled no punches when it came to the state of his game. “Unfortunately the NBA game is just a touch too far for me,” said the 41-year-old native of Victoria, BC. “I play one game and I’m out a month. I have a bunch of back things going on that compromise that nerve.”

After helping to deliver the Cleveland Cavaliers an NBA championship, head coach Ty Lue has agreed to a five-year, $35 million contract extension, league sources told The Vertical. The agreement was reached on Monday and a formal announcement is expected in the next 24 hours, league sources told The Vertical.
After his promotion to head coach following David Blatt’s firing in January, Lue gambled on himself and decided against signing a shorter, less lucrative deal as Cavaliers coach – never signing a three-year, $9.5 million contract framework. Lue’s decision turned out to be prophetic, because the Cavaliers’ improbable 3-1 comeback victory in the NBA Finals against the Golden State Warriors allowed for him to become compensated among the NBA’s elite head coaches.
