Lakers just announced that Steve Nash is out for the season, meaning his Hall of Fame career is likely over.
Statement from Lakers, Steve Nash and Mitch Kupchak: http://t.co/BcJel0qpy8
Lakers announce Steve Nash is out for the season, effectively ending the 40-year-old's career.
Looking closely at it - I think the most the Lakers would get in a disabled player exception for Nash is $4.85 mil - half his salary
Steve Nash will miss the entire season for the Lakers with recurring nerve damage to his back according to Bleacher Report and the LA Times.
1) Should've kept Kendall Marshall. 2) Sad face, 3) Would be intrigued to know if the Lakers could get a medical retirement at some point.
Ronnie Price, Lakers starting point god.
Lakers could use a point guard - rule of thumb - teams always need 3 pg - unless team thinks Ellington/Clarkson can handle it (iffy at best)
If Nash officially retires because of medical issue - and NBA signs off - his $ comes off Lakers books in April - doesn't really help much
Lakers may be able to apply for a disabled player exception for Nash - up to $5.3 mil - TBD
Note: If Lakers trade Nash - incoming team cannot get a disabled player exception for his injury
Wow, Steve Nash out for the year. Lakers, Lakers, Lakers. Ugh.
Ultimately, I don't expect Nash to be a major part of Lakers this year - and Young will return to be scorer for 2nd unit - so Lin may start
Additionally - if Steve Nash is a starter for Lakers - given his body, starting is healthier for him (shaky ground anyway)
Right now the Lakers can get scoring in their top unit with Kobe and cast - they have almost nothing in 2nd unit - which is why Lin there
Sadly for the tree people - Byron doesn't want the Lakers shooting many threes, so yeah
Jeanie Buss, EVP de los LA Lakers: "Mi hermano (Jim, SVP) me asegura que en 3 años el equipo será aspirante a campeón". Kobe contento...
In SportsCenter interview, Jeanie Buss calls free agents who wouldnt want to play with Kobe "losers" and wouldnt want them on the Lakers.
Vujacic jugó Udine (01-04) y en el Efes (11-14) entre ellos Lakers y Nets con dos anillos en LA.Nacido en Maribor pero nacionalidad eslovena
If you want to know why Jeanie Buss is more beloved by Lakers fans than Jim Buss, today is the perfect example. She was out defending Kobe.
