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 struggles in Dallas, Rondo signed a one-year, $11 million contract, yet Cousins expects Rondo to be in a Kings uniform with him next season when a new downtown arena opens. “He ain’t going nowhere. I will kidnap him myself,” Cousins told Yahoo Sports.
While Cousins’ health is of the utmost importance, Rondo is pulling from his past relationship with former Celtics teammate Kevin Garnett to help the young center reach another level. “Cousins has never played with a vet that he respected,” Rondo told Yahoo Sports. “I think I’ve got his attention a little bit. I think he respects what I say. He will do his own thing. I’m not trying to be his daddy. But I want to be his big brother like K.G. was to me, showing me the ropes and helping me along the way. Everything that I’m telling him, K.G. told me. Experience is everything. If someone has it and is willing to share it, I was always trying to soak in as much knowledge as possible.”
