    Lakers' Steve Nash announces his retirement

    Lakers guard Steve Nash officially announced his retirement from the NBA on Saturday. Nash published an essay on the Players Tribune that began with the phrase, "I'm retiring." "I will likely never play basketball again," Nash wrote. "It's bittersweet. I already miss the game deeply, but I'm also really excited to learn to do something else. ... When I think of my career, I can't help but think of the kid with his ball, falling in love. That's still what I identify with and did so throughout my entire story." Nash played 18 years in the NBA--10 with the Suns, six with the Mavericks, and the last two with the Lakers. He was an eight-time All Star and won back-to-back MVPs in 2004 and 2005. He turned 41 in Feburary and averaged 6.8 points this season in 15 games, his lowest scoring average since his rookie season. Nash averaged 14.3 points and 8.5 assists in his career.

    Steve Nash hints retirement: 'NBA game is just a touch too far for me'

    Lakers guard Steve Nash hinted that his NBA career is likely over while making an appearance on TSN Radio 1040 on Tuesday. Nash admitted that the wear-and-tear of his body can no longer handle game action. "Unfortunately the NBA game is just a touch too far for me," Nash said. "I play one game and I'm out a month. I have a bunch of back things going on that compromise that nerve. "I never worked as hard as I did the last 18 months, two years, twice a day almost every day to try to just give it that one last year," Nash said. "And I finally just had to admit that it's just not meant to be." Nash, 41, was ruled out for the 2014-15 season with recurring nerve issues in his back. He is owed $9.7 million this year before he becomes an unrestricted free agent at the end of the season. The eight-time NBA All-Star has career averages of 14.3 points, 8.5 assists and 3.0 rebounds over 18 seasons.

    Steve Nash to mentor young Lakers

    Lakers guard Steve Nash will be around to mentor the team's young players, according to ESPN. Since being ruled out for the season, Nash hasn't been a presence with the club. When asked about the situation, coach Byron Scott indicated that he's had a hard time getting in touch with Nash. That hasn't been a problem for Lakers general manager Mitch Kupchak, though. "He's around," Kupchak said. "He will work with some of our players. He may have already started doing that. He's not going to go out and advertise [but] he's doing it. ... As the season progresses, he'll be more engaged." The 40-year-old Nash was limited to just 15 games last season due to various injuries.

    Lakers coach Byron Scott, Steve Nash still not communicating

    Since vetern point guard Steve Nash was declared out for the season on Oct. 23, he and coach Byron Scott have still not been able to speak, according to the L.A. Times. Nash, 40, who is making $9.7 million this year, has not been around the Lakers' facility, which is drawing some questions for the front office, as they would like him to possibly mentor rookie point guard Jordan Clarkson. Some of Nash's actions, though, have irritated Lakers followers, most notably posting an Instagram video of himself whacking a golf ball at a driving range, according to the report. "Steve's a busy guy and I'm a busy guy as well," Scott said. "We're missing each other. I don't think he misses sleep over it and I don't miss any sleep over it, you know? He's a great guy. I've known Steve for a long time, so for us to not be able to get in contact with one another at this particular time, to me it's not a big deal."

    Lakers coach Byron Scott finally gets in contact with Steve Nash

    Lakers coach Byron Scott told reporters Tuesday that he's finally gotten in touch with Steve Nash, according to the Los Angeles Times. Scott expressed some "mild confusion" last week after not being able to get in contact with the 40-year-old point guard. Scott remains hopeful that Nash -- who is done for the season and possibly his basketball career with chronic back issues -- could play a role as a mentor for his young team. "He did say on his message that he's definitely going to come back [to visit], he wants to see everybody, but he just needed some time, which we all understood," Scott said Tuesday.

    Lakers G Steve Nash not in contact with coach Byron Scott

    Lakers coach Byron Scott told reporters Friday that he's reached out to Steve Nash and would like to see the 40-year-old point guard play a role as a mentor for his young team. Unfortunately for Scott, Nash has not been in contact with him. "He's probably going through a tough time to adjust as far as life without basketball at this particular point," Scott said. "It didn't upset me one bit. Hopefully I'll reach out to him again and we can talk or I can get a return call." Nash was ruled out for the 2014-15 season with recurring nerve issues in his back, and as a result, the Lakers have applied for a disabled player exception, which would be worth approximately $4.9 million. However, according to the Los Angeles Daily news, the Lakers aren't expected to use it to sign a player, and could possibly seek to trade Nash's expiring $9.8 million contract.
