As evidenced by the comments on the video, fans appeared upset at Nash for playing golf not long after the Lakers announced that he would be sidelined for the remainder of the season because of recurring back issues. Lakers coach Byron Scott defended Nash after practice Thursday. "There's a whole lot of people who don't understand the difference between golf and basketball," Scott said at the team's practice facility in El Segundo, California. "Unfortunately, you have people like that. The guy is hurt and can't play this year. But that doesn't mean he can't enjoy himself and have some fun while going through rehab and everything else. It probably doesn't look good [publicly], but relax." ESPN.com

Who could forget the former NBA commissioner citing "basketball reasons" for vetoing the trade that was supposed to send Paul to the Lakers, Pau Gasol to Houston and Lamar Odom to New Orleans in December 2011? The Lakers appeared to have acquired their most dynamic point guard since Magic Johnson, but then small-market owners raised a racket, Cleveland's Dan Gilbert in particular calling the trade a "travesty" in a lengthy letter to the league. David Stern said no. The deal was off. "Sometimes you want to say, 'Dammit, David Stern,'" Lakers Coach Byron Scott said before Friday's game. "When they made the trade, before David kind of X'd it, I was like, 'Wow, that's going to be fantastic.'" Los Angeles Times
