    Health of Steve Nash beginning to be a real concern for Lakers

    With the regular season set to tip off in less than a week, some of Nashs teammates are starting to wonder when, or even if, theyll have the full services of the surefire Hall of Famer in their lineup this season.

    Steve hasnt been able to complete a practice yet, so thats the bigger issue, Gasol said of Nash, who is averaging just 3.5 points and 3.5 assists in 16.7 minutes per game in the preseason, sitting out one of the exhibition games altogether. Im a little bit concerned because I want him to be healthy, I want him to play. I want him to play and I want him to do well. I want him to help us. I hope that he can.

    Its a different stage in my career, Nash said. I used to be able to get out, run up and down and feel like a world-beater every day, and now I have to try and get myself into some sort of form to try and execute for my team. Its a different frame of mind. Its a different challenge, but like I said, Im up for it. Im positive about it, I feel optimistic, Im inspired by my teammates and Im going to keep pushing through.

    Wasn't this an issue last season. Personally I think he's done, there's no way he can be a consistent starter.

    He should just retire. He had a great career, nothing left to prove, and its not like the Lakers have a real shot at winning a championship anytime soon.

    I said it this year and I said it last year, Blake and Nash are not good enough to be point guards.

    The best pg the team had last year was named Kobe Bryant. The two best PGs the team have this year assuming Kobe's even 75% of himself are Kobe Bryant and Jordan Farmar. Farmar has greatly outplayed Blake and Nash this preseason, so much so you see Blake pressing like its a playoff game to earn minutes.

    What should be done is Farmar should start and when he sits Kobe should have the ball and make the plays. Blake and Nash both can just play off the ball like Steve Kerr and shoot. Nash is 50/40/90. The lakers were 5-13, that's how they got 8 games under, with him running the O. They were 500 without him after he broke his leg and struggled to high hell with traps, turnovers, and blown coverage when he returned and before Kobe took the ball out of his after the Miami game where he said the O had to be easier than running 30 feet out to get the ball from a trapped and pressured current day Nash. Let Blake who shot over 40% from 3 and Nash who has always shot well, just catch and shoot.

    Funniest thing about this **** is that at the end of the day Dantoni was brought in so Phil wouldn't turn Nash into a Kerr or Fisher, but that's the only way the lakers won last year and will win this year.

    Nash has to accept he is a shooting guard off the ball or he will retire from a bad injury the way he is hobbled trying to run a team now

    Its the money, more so than Kidd or Malone.

    Nash got a 3 year, 27mil deal. He got everything he wanted, big money, more than 2 years, large market, close to his kids, warm weather, and even his coach.

    He will either get miraculously healthy by taking time away from the team and seeking alternative treatments, get a career ending injury, or be stretched and forced into retirement or a bench role

    He's just super old now. I think he retires after this year, or else we (Lakers) might pull out the stretch waive.

    Glad we didnt deal Shump to phoenix for nash. Really wished Nash could get a ring. He's got to be one of the best players to not get one 2 time MVP

    The under on 35 wins looks like more of a lock every day. If you like money and have some to invest, run to your sportsbooks now.

    Well at least he only has 2 years and $18 million left! Is there anything better than watching the Lakers fade off into obscurity?!

    It would be sad to see us be a bottom dweller, but honestly, there couldn't be a better year for us to suck than this one.

    Good draft pick + cap space for the next few years to rebuild.

    If we get in the lottery lol, watch us fluke out and get a stud like Smart or Randle.

    I agree and I think Kobe should sit out this year and think about prolonging his career. At 35, it will take him awhile. Even a younger Derrick Rose needed a year. I say trade Gasol, Nash, Blake, and tank.

    GO LAKERS
