Steve Nash responded to his golf-playing criticism
Steve Nash is still being a little tone-deaf about golf-gate but at least he's acknowledging the incident.
Steve Nash's reputation was lit on fire via social media last week when Lakers fans and others took out the pitchforks and torches after he posted a video of himself swinging a golf club despite being ruled out for the season with a bad back..
That instagram video has since been taken down but that didn't keep Lakers nation from burying the Hall-of-Fame point guard for somehow being healthy enough to play golf.
It got so bad that Nash felt like he needed to respond directly, which he did on Facebook.
"This may be hard for people to understand unless you've played NBA basketball, but there is an incredible difference between this game and swinging a golf club, hiking, even hitting a tennis ball or playing basketball at the park," he began.
"Fortunately those other activities aren't debilitating, but playing an NBA game usually puts me out a couple of weeks. Once you're asked to accelerate and decelerate with Steph Curry and Kyrie Irving it is a completely different demand."
That's fine, and true, but when it comes to the situation as a whole, I still feel like Nash is being a little tone-deaf.
Just like you wouldn't post a video of yourself playing pickup basketball a week after announcing that you were done for the season, it's probably not the wisest thing to post a video of yourself playing golf.
