Default Laker News: Steve Nash injured...AGAIN. Won't play 2014-15 season

http://espn.go.com/los-angeles/nba/s...-carrying-bags


The overwhelming lack of common sense in Lakers management is simply amazing to me. Why would you pay 9 million to a 40 year old point guard that hasn't been healthy for the last 4 seasons. And now, his body cant even hold up carrying luggage. How is there any chance that his body will hold up through the rigors of an NBA season?

This is quite pathetic. We should have used the stretch provision on him this summer. Now we're stuck with this bum.

Why would you use the stretch provision when you're not a serious title team? Why stretch out his salary over three years when you can have it off the books next summer.

You only use the stretch when you're trying to eek out every bit of available cap room to sign players for deep playoff runs. Not on a season that's in the first full year of a rebuild

dumb thread

The Lakers don't rebuild. They swing for the fences and they either get there or not. We should have stretched Nash to try to get someone at the trade deadline in february. Remember that rondo, bledsoe, and dragic are guys that may be moved at the deadline. That would have freed up $6million for us this year, and got rid of a downright bum off our team at the same time.

this is bad. i really really REALLY wanted to see some good laker Nash before it all crumbled away in disastrous faults.

Edit: Oh shit this is few days old

Anyways... don't care if he's cashing checks. this team is a few years and lots of arranged luck away from competing. most importantly...i'd want that money too!

Nash will miss the entire season because of a back injury, the Lakers announced Thursday, putting the two-time NBA MVP point guard's career in doubt. -- AP

While the statement stopped short of saying Nash planned to retire, the two-time league Most Valuable Player said throughout training camp that this would likely be his final season. In two years, he appeared in 65 games. -- OC Register

If the lakers were really swinging for the fences then how come they did NOT offer contracts to Bledsoe and Monroe? I really believe they could have gotten Monroe for 9 mil/yr

We made inquiries into Bledsoe and Monroe. Remember they were both RESTRICTED free agents this summer. And Carmelo and Lebron rightfully wanted to continue to be "the man" on whatever team they are on so they did not want or need to join the Lakers.


With Nash gone we will look into possibly getting a Rondo or a Bledsoe by the february free agent deadline. Our roster as is is pretty solid. We may be only a piece away from completing our championship jigsaw puzzle.

^^ haha, yeah the Lakers are way more than a piece away.

It's sad that the end of Nash's career had to end like this. It would have been nice to at least see him end it playing off the bench. I guess this is what happens when you try to play until you're 40 in the NBA though. Your body just breaks down after a while. It could be a good thing for the Lakers though. They were actually counting on Nash to give them minutes. They need to be playing other people and looking into younger athletes anyhow.

I said this here on this board when the Lakers first signed him citing his age and the minutes he was playing in Phoenix before the signing which was less than 20 minutes a game. All everyone did here was to bust my balls because I said it. The always "classy and eloquent" DKLaker went off on me as if I had committed sacrilege upon the Lakers. Well, a lot of you guys wanted Nash and now you've got him. Congratulations!

Honestly it's for the better. If the Lakers finish with any pick higher than 5 it goes to Phoenix doesn't it? I'd much rather finish with the 5th pick this season than the 8th or 9th.

He goes off on everyone, no worries. The angrier--the better, ye? Oh, DK.

OMG, Nash, you had a great career. But, it's time. lol

Yeah, I was one of those people that wanted him on this team, just because, you know, given who he is and all. I think we all knew that people were going to get injured at some point, but I didn't think it would be this bad for him.

And is there any truth to this? That the PHX Suns medical staff should get the credit for keeping Nash durable or somewhat healthy?

What a career though.
