Lakers News: Steve Nash Says ‘I Love The Game’ After Win On 40th Birthday

After the win against the Philadelphia 76ers in a 112-98 victory Friday Night, Steve Nash spoke reflected on his NBA career.

During his locker room interview, he spoke with Kevin Ding of Bleacher Report about his passion for the game of basketball:

Nash, who turned 40 today, had his best game this season so far with 19 points, four rebounds and five assists. Nash’s 19 points was the most scored by a 40-year-old since Karl Malone with 20.

With such a injury-riddled season, Nash and company are striving to find success with any kind of capability left. Although many believe retirement was on the horizon after his latest injury setback with root irritation in his back, the veteran point guard appears to still have something left in the tank.

It remains to be seen if Nash can sustain this level of play, but he’s definitely turned some heads after an impressive performance against the 76ers.

Nash’s next test will be against the Chicago Bulls on Sunday in his first game back at the Staples Center in Los Angeles.

    Thanks Nash & Blake for nothing!

    Yes, we won but for what? Not going into playoff, not getting top pick either. And both of you are freaking old for rebuilding. How long you going to play Nash? 50?

    Good job! Now we are no 8th in the draft which mean we won’t get a future franchise player. Just some role player. Thanks a lot Nash, thanks a lot! #sarcasm

      #sarcasm??? How about #gofkyourself.

      not their fault the 76ers didn’t play better lol

      There’s no guarantee any of those guys will be franchise players. We’ll still get a good pick and the plan is to build through free agency anyway. These guys are tired of losing. They deserve to win some games. We’re the Lakers, not some scrub team with no championship history. None of these players or the coaches enjoy the disrespect the Lakers have been getting. Wins are good.

    Great to see Steve Nash playing well and having fun after all the pain and disappointment of last season and this one. Good for the young guys who have played hard and deserve to win some games. The Bulls will be a test. Hope Farmar will be back on the court.

    I wish we had Steve Nash healthy all season long,now it’s a little too late to make a serious run towards the playoffs but it’s great to see Nash back on the court.He is playing hard yes he looks good recently.He is 40 years old and they say 40 is over the hill well Nash is proving he still can play the game of basketball.Good job!

  • LakersHeatBeef

    Nash plays hard,i think if he remains healthy he can help out a contender like Indiana.Perhaps a Danny Granger to LAL for Nash and Jordan Hill would work.

    • Chrmngblly

      Finally! That is what Nash is good for: a trade chip. I would rather keep him as a coach, if he will stay. But right now he is sucking us dry and wasting a roster spot.
