Remember when Orlando swung and miss on the Grant Hill / T-Mac experiment. It happens to franchises.
In 2012, the Lakers swung for the fences on Dwight and Nash and missed. Thats why Lakers are now in rebuilding mode. Plain and simple.
I believe Peyton just told the fans of Denver they should buy a Buick. BK
Something doesn't quite fit here. http://t.co/Z8XnFaHqD9
... what roster decision they would make. Price/Ellington put Lakers at 15. Would have to waive Ellington before using exception.
Lakers presumably wll be granted disabled player exception, which they could sign or trade for a player making ~$4.85 million.Question is...
Steve Nash wasn't just a Hall of Fame player, he was a Hall of Fame person. One of the nicest guys ever. Bummed L.A. never got to see both.
Is this the end of Steve Nash's career? He announces he wont play this season, his 19th. A sad ending
While it's depressing today, it's less depressing to see Nash end it now than play this out over 82 games of can he play tonight? BK
It is so beyond depressing to see a career like Steve Nash's go out like the sports equivalent of Old Yeller. AK
Steve Nash's time with the Lakers wasn't what we expected, but an incredible journey for a person who defied the odds throughout his career.
Kupchak: “..but unfortunately he simply hasn’t been able to get there up to this point in time.”
“We know how hard he’s worked the last two years to try to get his body right for the rigors of the NBA, and how badly he wants to play…”
Kupchak on Nash: “As disappointed as we are for ourselves and our fans, we’re even more disappointed for Steve”
Nash: "I will continue to support my team during this period of rest, and will focus on my long-term health.”
Nash: “I work very hard to stay healthy and unfortunately my recent setback makes performing at full capacity difficult.”
Steve Nash: “Being on the court this season has been my top priority and it is disappointing to not be able to do that right now,”
Lakers just announced that Steve Nash is out for the season, meaning his Hall of Fame career is likely over.

Nash hasn't determined whether he will retire, according to a person familiar with the situation. He'll figure that out at some point soon.
