Is Steve Nash's career over?
Los Angeles Lakers coach Mike D'Antoni said Monday that Steve Nash likely won't play again in 2013-14. And with the point guard struggling with health issues for the better part of two seasons, it's safe to wonder whether we've seen the last of Nash as an NBA player. Nash, meanwhile, said "we'll see" when asked whether he'll return this season, and has given mixed signals as to whether he wants to play in 2014-15. Is this it for the man with more than 10,000 assists to his name over 18 seasons with the Phoenix Suns, Dallas Mavericks and Lakers?
For the first time in a long time, the Lakers will have the lineup they were planning on when they signed Steve Nash and Dwight Howard. Kobe Bryant and Pau Gasol will return to the Lakers tonight, and they will be thrown right back into the starting lineup. The Lakers have been a different team in the second half and are comfortably over .500 -- since they're finally healthy, will they actually be a team to beat come playoff time? That is, if they make the playoffs, of course.
