Nash has been in the NBA for a while and he is knocking 40. He was injured for most of the season and his healing time was that of a 40yr old man slow. While he is still a good shooter and passer he is however slow. He uses his off hand to wand off and get round defenders. He was never a great defender so it hard to say he fell off in that department but he is awful in transition. It could be injury or it could be age. I think its both. He clearly should not be a starter. Should he wait to hit the wall like Kidd or just call it quits now.

Were you trying to say he uses his off hand to ward off and get around defenders? He's always done, has nothing to do with him getting old.

I don't think Steve Nash cares about winning a ring anymore. At this point, he's just going to collect his money and retire. Watching him play, he always seems satisfied even when they lose. LAL picking up Steve Nash really hurt his season. Had he played for any other team that actually needed a PG, they would've benefited a lot. Heck, NYK should've picked Nash up.

Last year was a mess for the Lakers, I say to give it another go.

I dont know if his struggles last year were a result of old age, or the way the Lakers team operated last year. I'm inclined to go with the latter.

i don't see him retiring right now, but if he gets hit with injuries again and struggles maybe after this next season.

Definitely NOT. He has alot more left in the tank thank Kidd/Hill but his days as a starter should be over. He would make a great backup at this stage.

I believe your medical staff is other worldly. Not Joking. Something is up in Phoenix

If he has major health issues this season he will retire.

I say give it one more year and then try to reach a buyout agreement on the third year if hes still not feelin it. Which would coincidentally be ideal for the lakers.

This is the mostly likely scenario. If Howard leave and Kobe isn't himself, he might not wanna play anymore anyway.

His body has started to break down a bit. He has a couple of years left, but he will be injury prone and can't play a full season anymore.

No chance he retires and leaves that much money on the table.

2 years ago the Suns had no chance of contending, lost Amare in free agency for nothing, and he still re-signed for 2 years, because no other team had the capability to pay him the $22M that he ended up signing again for. Nash is really about the money a little more than winning. The reason he went to the Lakers even though he knew it was a bad fit with Mike Brown is because they were the team willing to sign and trade for him and pay $28M over 3 years.

Nothing wrong with that IMO, its just something that is rarely brought up.

That's not true. Nash cares about winning as much as anyone. He cried when the Lakers eliminated Suns in the WCF in 2010. His desire to win should be unquestioned.

The only reason you're so confident is that you know that next season is a wash for the Lakers.

You wouldn't be so cocky to say that for the 2014-15 season.

I think its time for Chris Bosh to retire next. That guy could show up with Parker Bros. and Milton Bradley and he would still find away to make his game disappear.

Even if he dont retire he need to come off the bench. Nash playing next to a slower injured Kobe who vow to be more of a passer with Artest who is not stealth himself. Its going to be another long season for the Lakers.

At 40 Grant Hill and Kidd had that flame but they were flame out in the end. Rasheed Wallace also had a good showing until his body said hey man. Nash is talking a good game but his body is starting to say hey man.

I think he was a victim of the system and playing with Kobe. And its obvious Gary Vitti can't hang with Aaron Nelson in terms of medical staff superiority.

They felt he was old and it was time for a younger player. Sure playing next to Kobe with the ball out his hands hurt a bit but i am looking pass his assist numbers. Its how the player move on the floor and how the opponent pick on him. He still plays good but at what pace? Like mike miller, ray allen, Rashard lewis etc he is a bench player at best retired at worst.

Add Ray and Tmac to the list of guys that may retire. Nash two more years as a starter?

He still has something to offer. Maybe not as a starter, but he isn't finished like Kidd.
