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 his final game, I stood beside Aldridge in the visiting locker room in Memphis. the media scrum broke. The cameras were gone. He was holding three cellular telephones he carries, two of them he told me don’t even work. They just hold music he likes. There was just a somber feeling about the whole thing, as if this was some kind of ending. He’d rented that house owned by Damon Stoudamire in West Linn all season. He gave notice to his landlord the following day. Neighbors say Aldridge moved out within 72 hours of that loss, and his belongings were shipped to Texas.
To their credit, Aldridge and Lillard worked well enough together on the court. They’re both too intelligent and socially aware to take their philosophical differences public. But they were co-workers, and not great friends. Those deeply entrenched in both camps told me on multiple occasions, basketball aside, that the two men were not huge fans of each other. Which only makes Lillard’s inability to get a face-to-face sit-down with Aldridge in that 11th hour trip to Los Angeles less shocking.
