Lakers News: Steve Nash Felt Slight Tweak In His Hamstring

UPDATE (12:24 PM): Steve Nash is a game-time decision on Sunday via LA Times’ Mike Bresnahan:

___________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________

Steve Nash came off the bench for the first time since the 1999-2000 season and logged 19 minutes, which was more than Mike D’Antoni stated the 40-year-old point guard would play. Nash last played on Feb. 11 when he was able to play through the first two quarters, but was unable to play in the second half due to lingering injury issues.

As the oldest player in the NBA, Nash didn’t appear to be too limited in Friday’s loss to the Washington Wizards as he handed out a team-high 11 assists. D’Antoni credited Nash’s ability to help the ball move on offense, which the coach believes leads to more defensive activity.

According to Bleacher Report’s Kevin Ding, Nash’s performance may earn him a start on Sunday:

Nash has been the focus of scrutiny in recent weeks in large part due to his candid remark that he is motivated by his $9.7 million salary to return next season. Prior to Thursday, it was generally believed Nash, like Kobe Bryant, was set to sit out the remainder of the season. D’Antoni declared as much, but an official announcement never came from the Lakers and Nash was pushed into action in response to Jordan Farmar’s hamstring injury.

While Nash was able to play more than the projected minutes, it may have come at a cost, according to Ding:

With 14 games remaining, the Lakers will likely continue to monitor Nash’s minutes and may be forced to reduce them to avoid another injury. Nash is averaging 7.6 points and 4.7 assists per game, which are well below his career averages of 14.3 points and 4.7 assists.

Since arriving in Los Angeles, the aging point guard has spent more time in a suit than a Lakers uniform and is at risk of being waived this summer via the stretch provision. While the Lakers haven’t spoken publicly on the matter, Nash can increase the likelihood of remaining with the team if he is able to replicate Friday’s play moving forward.

    Simple typo on his career averages for assists. Should be “14.3 points and 8.5 assists.”

    That’s not all you’re gonna feel , hang it the fuck up you think 11 assists and less than 10 ppg avg is gonna help? Have some self respect and collect your child support money and have mercy on the lake show

    Ps Jim buss you are the epitome of unqualified

    • Chrmngblly

      Yes. This is dysfunctional inbreeding at it’s worst. I don’t know how this is going to work out. We all suppose Jerry Buss ought to be able to provide for his kids through his will but that said, his kids are not the world class hires you would find in other organizations or even in the Lakers in previous eras. I just hope one of his offspring has one or two of his gifts. Wouldn’t that be nice?

      “Close but no cigar” is about what you would expect from the inexperienced or unqualified—and that’s just what we have in all these “moves”. Actually, no one who ever lived, including the Doc, could have done everything the Lakers have been trying to do and succeed perfectly at everything, just to be fair, but to have succeeded at nothing is so unacceptable, in the whole, that an objective evaluation of the Lakers’ performance as an organization has to be ruled a negative.

      I question Dr. Buss “plan” and Dr. Buss, himself, (gasp!) for foisting all his dysfunctional family on the LN. He was entitled to do it by law, but I say it has not been good for the Lakers and is doomed as a practical matter when the Lakers have to choose MDA as our coach over the right man for the job, Phil Jackson. Could Phil have wedded Howard’s childish personality with Kobe, Gasol and Nash? God knows. But the fact that personal reasons prevented the Lakers from doing their very best is its own indictment of the Busses’ wrong-headed approach to rebuilding the team. We needed someone who could have done what Phil does best when it came to integrating all those personalities and superstar egos, but the Buss family couldn’t bring themselves, for personal reasons, to give the Lakers their best chance to succeed with Howard and now he’s gone.

      Was that a “good thing?” Was that part of the plan? I submit that Dr. Buss’ plan, for all the semi-religious deference it is being accorded by its beneficiaries, is nothing more than the feeble attempt of a dying man to feather the nests of his inbred offspring. While these charges are harsh, that harshness is only borne out by the sorry reality of their results on the court. The Busses, because of personal animosity and short-sighted self-interest are unable to act in the best interests of the Lakers franchise. That cannot be denied.

      Enough of this sprinkling of “holy water” over the “plan.” It is the cover story that keeps Jim Buss employed and that is all it is. Pure nepotism.

      • Shawn

        Jim Buss does not like Phil, come on f.king Dumbtoni over a Proven coach. The Buss Kids need to be owners and nothing more. They need to hire a capable front office to run the team. None of them should be running anything that has to do with the Purp&Gold period.

        • Chrmngblly

          True words. Now what?

      • hookedonnews

        According to every person on the inside who has spoken about the hiring of MDA rather than PJ, it was Dr. Buss who made the decision. He didn’t want to return to the Triangle. He wanted Showtime. That was the reason for the D’Antoni hiring. All this talk about dysfunction within the family has been disputed by Jeanie Buss and recently by Kobe Bryant. Dr. Buss has been dead a year. Why not give the family some time before concluding they are incapable of running the team? If they have enough problems they’ll seek some outside help I imagine.

        Could PJ have kept Dwight Howard in LA? There’s no way to know the answer. Kobe was the real problem, and it has been said plenty of times that he never really wanted to come to LA. I don’t think Dwight was willing to spend another 3 years dealing with Kobe.

        We just keep going back to the decision not to hire Phil, but Phil has said numerous times that he would not have been able to deal with the physical demands of coaching if he had been given the job. So who knows if he would have even finished the season?

        Family businesses are not all that uncommon. Plus Mitch Kupchak is a proven NBA executive. The Lakers have a high draft choice and some room for top free agents. All is not doom & gloom. We’ve been limited by the CBA, by a continuing flood of injuries (still coming), and by the idiocy of Dwight Howard, but that doesn’t mean things aren’t going to improve. It’s just going to take some time.

        • Chrmngblly

          Yeah, hook, you are right in much of what you say. It is certainly too late to do anything about CP3, Howard, Nash, Mike Brown and MDA. But from where we are we ought to be able to look back at least as far back as the CP3 debacle and ask ourselves if these were all just unlucky breaks or if there is anything we could or should do within the organization so we don’t repeat those mistakes.
          Doesn’t this seem like a critical point for introspection? It should be. The one thing we all need to be honest about is “the plan”. Dr. Buss’ plan was just that, Dr Buss plan for taking care of his children. It was not, however, a plan to rebuild a world class BB franchise. Everybody knows what the docs’ priorities were.

          • hookedonnews

            I don’t think trying to trade for CP3 was a mistake or that acquiring Howard & Nash & MDA were mistakes. It was worth taking the risk to get Howard. Maybe they should have known what a moron he was, but I can’t blame them for making the deal. Same for Nash. He was coming off a great year & healthy. No one knew he was going to break his leg and have all these problems as a result. I would never have hired Mike Brown. As far as MDA, that was also a logical choice if you wanted a Showtime offense and you had Steve Nash already. Dr. Buss was alive when all these things were done, and probably had input. I doubt that anything would have been done that he really objected to.

            All I’m saying is that you should give it some time before you throw the family under the bus. It’s way to early to give them a failing grade. There have been plenty of questionable decisions made over the years by the Lakers, but they always returned to the top. I know Kobe and some fans want everything done like yesterday, but it’s not going to happen. The CBA won’t allow it. I think the biggest mistake has been giving Kobe all that money. Still scratching my head over that one. He had already said he was going to stay. Will that kill their chances to rebuild? It won’t help, but I don’t think it’s fatal. If in 3 years this team is floundering, I will agree with you.

          • Chrmngblly

            We can talk about the player acquisitions anytime you want. Are you sold on their coaching hires? I think the reason the Buss family doesn’t choose strong coaches is because the Busses themselves are weak and lack the self-confidence to get somebody strong. Who has been impressed with Mike Brown or MDA? You?
            I also think Dr. Buss was in the process of trying to turn over the Lakers to the next generation for several years. I am pretty sure going for CP3 and Howard were logical decisions anybody would have approved of and so did the Dr. I just don’t see him involved in the day-to-day details of making that happen. As with a lot of things you do with your kids or subordinates, you basically give them their way as long as it doesn’t seem too crazy and let them make their own mistakes–you have to. I think the Dr. did too.

          • hookedonnews

            There’s no way to know for sure how much Dr. Buss was involved in any of these decisions other than the one to hire D’Antoni. As for their coaching choices, it’s been a mix of good & bad everything in between. Pat Riley & Phil Jackson were pretty good choices. As I said, I would never have hired Brown.

            As for the hiring of MDA, I think the fact that they had Nash, that Dr. Buss wanted Showtime, and that Kobe had said D’Antoni when asked who should replace Brown made it an easy choice. I think he’s a good coach–not the best coach in the league but they all have jobs. He really didn’t have a chance to win over the fans because of the Phil Jackson debacle. Then you add the injuries, the Dwight/Kobe saga, the egos (Gasol), and the league’s worst bench and you had a public relations disaster for D’Antoni even though they did manage to get to the playoffs last season.

            This season we had a better bench, but the injury situation has been worse. I think fans have unrealistic expectations about what could have been done this season. I don’t agree with everything D’Antoni has done, but trying to pretend he’s the problem and ignoring the players/injuries makes no sense to me.

            Kenny Smith said that he thought that (other than PJ) that D’Antoni was the best coach available at the time he was hired. The problem was that fans expected a championship, and even if everyone had been healthy, I don’t know if that was possible considering that bench.

            I think you’re being overly critical of the Buss family. I don’t think Dr. Buss would have turned the team over to his family if he didn’t think they could handle it. Of course, there’s no way to prove that either way. I don’t think you want to give your kids a job you know they’re going to fail at.

            As for the deal that was given to Nash, it wouldn’t have been a problem if he hadn’t broken his leg. The reason they gave him that contract was that he had been offered $36 million by the Raptors and also had an offer from the Knicks. Nash asked for that 3 year deal, and they agreed because they hadn’t had a PG like him since Magic. Maybe they shouldn’t have guaranteed that 3rd year, but no one could have foreseen what has happened.

            As for trading Howard, people can disagree about whether that would have been better. If there had been a player available they really wanted maybe it would have made sense to trade him, but I don’t think there was. They decided they would rather have the cap space than pay a player they really didn’t see as part of their long term future. The CBA has a lot to do with all that.

            All teams make bad deals and hire coaches who don’t succeed. Sometimes a coach is bad with one team and good with another. A lot of it depends on the players they have. I’m just willing to give the Buss family some slack because all teams go through rebuilding, and what has gone on with injuries these last 2 seasons is unprecedented. Time will tell whether they can cut it or not.

          • Chrmngblly

            One time my wife went into hysterics and I took her to the hospital emergency room. After the doctor examined her, I turned to him and asked, “Is she emotional because she is like this or is she like this because she is emotional?” He replied in his Indian accent, “Who can say?” Talking to him is like talking to you.

            In human conduct, you look for patterns of behavior. Anybody can indict the Busses, after the fact, fact-by-fact, for all the incidents in this series of events that has become the disaster the Lakers have become lately. And still, there’s always an excuse as to why nobody is a fault and nobody could predict, etc., blahblahblah.

            So look at this situation anyway you want and see what makes the most sense. What is it Jimmy ought to be held responsible for, anyway? Are the Buss kids being held responsible for their own results or not?

            Remember, like Kobe says, “No excuses.” That is a sentiment all champions share, no matter what sport or enterprise they are involved in. Do the Busses hold themselves to that standard?

            You are totally permitted to look at all this however you do and make all the excuses you want—but that is not what a champion does, hook.

          • hookedonnews

            There are valid reasons (not excuses) for what has happened the last 2 seasons. I find it funny that Kobe is talking about no excuses, when his absence killed any chance we had in the playoffs last season, and has contributed to the disaster this season has become. I’ve used this example before, but if LeBron & Wade were injured, the Heat would not be in the Finals. And if you added to that the number of injuries the Lakers have had, their season would have been a failure. Not as big a failure maybe because they play in the East, but a failure nonetheless. Would those injuries have been an excuse?

            Of course, Jim Buss is going to be held accountable along with Kupchak and others for what happens with the team. I’m just a little more reasonable with my expectations than you and a lot of other fans.

          • Chrmngblly

            Big News! I was just elected God and you had better watch your mouth…:-)

            Hook, you’re so reasonable I would consider you close to brain-dead. Jeanie Buss, especially, ought to be PR savvy enough to grab Magic or Jerry Sloan or anybody with a little credibility to deflect criticism and offer counsel to this organization. An advisory council is one of the most useful and important tools the Busses could have.

          • hookedonnews

            That sounds like the elections that take place in North Korea. The little guy with the funny haircut gets 100% of the vote. I want a recount.

            Jerry Sloan is working for the Jazz. Don’t think they are going to bring in Magic anytime soon with all the statements he has made about Jim. Personally I would like for them to bring in Jerry West, but you would have to fire Mitch in order to do that because there’s such a thing as having too many voices. He’s not going to come in as an adviser. He’s already got a job. So for now it’s going to be Mitch, Jimmy & Jeanie. As I said, maybe they will bring someone else in if things get too bad. Look on the bright side. More high draft choices. (That is a joke. I can never be sure you know when I’m joking.)

          • Chrmngblly

            1st, Hook, I always assume you are joking when you don’t agree with me…LOL
            2nd, I really wish you would quit giving Jimmy Buss’ brown spot so much tongue when you kiss his ass, though. It’s undignified.
            3rd, you can’t possibly believe Magic just trashes JB out of meanness, do you? He’s been so close to all the Busses for so long, it doesn’t make any sense to me at all. I think Magic said what he thought, like it or don’t.

          • hookedonnews

            You seem to confuse the fact that I’m not blaming everything on Buss with undying love for the guy. And you really need to see a therapist about that anal fixation.

            No, I don’t think Magic trashes JB out of meanness, and of course, he believes what he says. That doesn’t mean it needs to be said in the press. He’s arguably the greatest Laker ever. He shouldn’t be saying that stuff in public because it encourages disrespect not only for Buss but for the entire front office and the team itself. It means more coming from him, and I doubt that Dr. Buss would appreciate what he’s doing. Back to my original point–why would the Lakers offer him a job under those circumstances? If someone was telling everybody what an idiot I was, I wouldn’t reward him with a job.

          • Chrmngblly

            So, let me get this straight. Are you saying there’s no chance of you rewarding me with a job now?

            The other thing is, hook, when you throw yourself at the guy like that it sort of makes it seem like you are a male groupie or other hanger-on. It is shameful.

            If you would give me that job you have been holding out on, I would be able to afford a therapist for my anal fixation.

          • hookedonnews

            Actually I don’t have a job opening, although you’re right that you would probably not be my first choice. You’ll just have to find a way to get that therapy you need without my assistance.

            I tolerate Buss much like I tolerate you, and no one has accused me of being a Chrmngblly groupie.

          • Chrmngblly

            That’s cold, dude.

          • Chrmngblly

            Three more years? If it takes you 3 more years to tell if this grand experiment is working out, you should go kill yourself…:-)

            Damn, hook. Two coaching disasters in a row should convince anybody—however many years are involved. The consequences of waiting around for you to make up your mind and losing, year after year, for 3 more years are too horrible to imagine. So if I get elected God, we are not waiting….:-)

          • hookedonnews

            Next year you’re going to have basically the same roster, although hopefully they’ll be healthy plus the draft pick. Don’t know if Gasol will return, but I’m thinking he might. They might pick up another good player, but I’m doubting it. More likely they will bring in a cheap player if they need one. I think they want to wait until 2015/2016. That’s when the difference makers will be free agents.

            I don’t know how you define success. I think this team could have made the playoffs if everyone had been healthy because they are better than last season. They should be better next season, but I don’t see them in the Finals. Of course, with Kobe anything is possible, but I wouldn’t put any money on it. Besides, Kobe wants to do his own thing, and will be a disruptive factor. He makes up for that with scoring, so it’s a mixed bag.

            That’s the reason I said 3 years. Let’s wait & see who they bring in via free agency. Let’s see how the injury situation is because that has been the major factor in the team’s lack of success the last 2 seasons.

            As for coaching changes, if MDA is back next season and is reasonably successful he may get another contract. Don’t have a coronary. But if the team is in disarray and playing below expectations he’ll be fired. If they bring in another coach, who knows how long it will take for him to get things rolling?

            That’s the problem with fans in this town. They expect instant results and ignore the realities. At least the Phil Jackson factor has been removed, although I’m sure he’ll be brought up for the next 10 years if the team doesn’t get to the Finals by then. Some folks just can’t let go of the past. They think getting Shannon Brown and various other ex-players is the ticket to success. I don’t think any other fan-base in the league is so stuck in the past. It is a great past, but it is still the past. I’m hoping the future will be great also, but it’s not going to happen tomorrow.

            Fortunately there is no God election. In the end, it’s not up to us. The family has the power, and they are going to do what they’re going to do. We just have to hope it’s the right thing. I just think it’s time to stop bashing them. There’s really no point in it. It’s not going to change anything. Of course, if they do something I don’t like I’ll be yelling as loud as anybody. :)

          • Chrmngblly

            If you think it is time to stop bashing the busses, stop bashing them. I plan to continue or increase, if possible. You really don’t understand Kobe at all. He is worth every penny he is making and he is NOT the problem.

          • hookedonnews

            I don’t think any of us know how much he’s going to be worth in the next two seasons. If his contract is homage to what he’s meant to the Lakers it’s fair. That’s not the point. The point is that he’s a multi-millionaire who says he wants to win another championship. Taking up that much cap space says otherwise. That is a problem. He is also a potential problem with other players (Dwight Howard ring a bell?). On the other hand, if he returns to form he’s still right up there with the best players in the league and someone who can make a difference like few players can. I think I understand Kobe extremely well. I’m aware of his talent, his will to win, his work ethic, etc., but I’m not blind to the negatives on the other side of that coin. Most people ignore even his own statements and pretend he’s someone he’s not.

          • Chrmngblly

            It is probably necessary to also have played competitive sports at least at somewhat of a high level to understand Kobe. Myself, I was a wrestler in high school and college. Few sports force an athlete to confront himself so directly and measures his will to dominate his competitor so clearly as wrestling does. And yet, at a certain level, all champions know about the nature of competition.

            You don’t really think they would pay Kobe like they do if he was the kind of guy you are describing, some good points and some bad–sort of so-so, do you? I am sure he is a dick. So what? Only an immature D12 would find that to be that big of a problem. Jeez. Look how he played the whole last season.

          • hookedonnews

            So far he has run 2 of the best centers in the league out of town. He’s one of the best players ever, one of the most popular players in the league, and the face of the Lakers. That’s why he’s highly paid. But the Lakers could have had another championship if Shaq had not left, and even though I don’t like Howard, he’s a real difference maker defensively. Kobe was directly responsible for him leaving according to people close to Howard. That kind of stuff hurts the team. It not only hurts the team directly, but it hurts the image of the team because no one had walked away from the Lakers before under those circumstances. I know there were other factors with Shaq & Howard, but Kobe was a significant part of both players heading out of town. His my way or the highway attitude is not helpful. At some point you’ve got to put the team first if you are going to win championships. When he’s done that they have won. I’m just not seeing much willingness to do that as time goes by.

            Yes, he was amazing at times last season and pretty much willed the team into the playoffs. However, there were times when he hurt the team with his excessive shooting. He said he wanted MDA to coach, but he has been less than cooperative at times about running his offense. I like players who listen to coaches. You talk about competitive fire, but teams win championships. Selfish players hurt team play. Now Kobe is such a great player that he can often overcome that and take the team to a win. But he can’t do it consistently enough to win a championship, and he shouldn’t have to. The Spurs don’t have a player as good as Kobe, but they are always at the top of the West because they have unselfish leaders on their team. I’m glad we have Kobe. I would just prefer more unselfish play on his part. Now when it’s crunch time and we need a score I have no problem with his one on one stuff. There’s a time for that, but you don’t want it going on for 4 quarters because when that happens the other guys are going to be disengaged and standing around. I don’t mind him scoring 50 points a game if it’s within the flow of the offense.

          • Chrmngblly

            You are clueless is all I can say. In each case, look at the people who did stay and what they said.

          • hookedonnews

            Let’s just agree to disagree. No point in beating a dead horse.

          • Chrmngblly

            I know. You are trying to defend that for which there is no excuse. Just like Jeanie buss is. She knows Magic is right, too. She just can’t be the one who snips Jimmy’s tiny balls off, though. I feel the same way about you, hook.

            Ewwww. That sounds terrible—just don’t reproduce, OK? We’ll agree to disagree. For today….:-)

        • Chrmngblly

          What do you think the triangle is, btw? Shaq said he thought it was boring—which, in a way of speaking, is the beauty of the triangle. There’s no real conflict between small-ball and the triangle.

          • hookedonnews

            To quote John McEnroe, you cannot be serious.

          • Chrmngblly

            Space and motion. But PJ’s teams also changed out of the triangle sometimes. If you know more about this, you tell me.

          • hookedonnews

            Don’t claim to be an expert on the Triangle, but the aesthetics are very different from the D’Antoni system. The PG in the Triangle is an after-thought whereas the PG is the major driver in the D’Antoni offense. The better the PG the better your offense is going to be. Saw a prime example of that Friday night with Marshall & Nash (had to mention that). The floor spacing and tempo are also totally different. Yes, there was motion, but I just don’t think you can say the two systems have must more than that in common. The league has moved away from the Triangle-type offenses for the most part. Not saying a team could not be successful playing it. With the right players you can make any system (other than the Princeton) work. Joking about the Princeton (but not really–don’t see it as an NBA offense).

          • Chrmngblly

            The appeal of the triangle for Phil, perhaps, is that if you don’t have your head in the game, it is really obvious. It is it’s own little human machine when everyone knows what they are doing–rather than having plays, for example.

          • hookedonnews

            I think it’s pretty obvious in any system when you don’t have your head in the game, but maybe so. I guess we all have our preferences when it comes to style of play and offensive systems.

          • Chrmngblly

            No. Some systems players can float along, get to their spots slow, set weak picks, never be open for a pass or to take a shot—you’ve seen it happen. The triangle will just expose you faster…LOL

        • 3339

          Doesn’t matter who made the decision on dantoni. It was a mistake.
          Dwight Howard said himself that Phil would’ve kept him in LA.

            We can argue about whether Howard would have stayed if Phil had been hired, but as I’ve already pointed out he has said he couldn’t have done the job. He’s not able to coach anymore. Howard couldn’t deal with Kobe. He said he would stay if they amnestied him, but of course, they weren’t going to do that.

            It remains to be seen whether MDA can succeed in LA if he’s given the chance. Trying to judge him under the circumstances he’s dealt with since coming to the Lakers is impossible.

      You’re kidding, right? 11 assists in 19 minutes is great. And it would have been more if the people he passed the ball to had been able to make a basket. Nash changed the game when he was on the floor. If you can’t see how he affected the flow and the offensive energy, you shouldn’t be commenting on it.

      You probably also think Kendall Marshall is the future with his 8 points and 9 assists per game…

      I didn’t see the game, but it seems to me that Nash went out last night and told all the lousy Lakers fans out there that he still has a little left in the tank and is going to work harder than Kobe if he has to to prove he belongs. Notice, both players out for the remainder of the year, Nash stayed in shape to play again if able while Kobe says he could’ve played a month ago but chooses not to.

      The PPG average is low because he was injured those first 6 games he played and it affected his shooting. He has shot a good % since he came back in February, but he doesn’t look to shoot as his first option. When you generate at least 22 points for your teammates and add 5 of your own, that’s not bad for limited minutes on a first night back. 11 assists in 19 minutes is nothing to sneeze at plus the effect of his being out there on the rest of the team. You honestly think they’re better without him? Farmar is injured & they don’t have another PG to back-up Marshall. Now Henry is injured again. Any reasonable fan would be glad to have him back and hope he’s able to play Sunday.

      He can’t take the money if he retires. Even if he could he wouldn’t because he wants to play. Team Canada will survive.
