In episode four of Grantland’s The Finish Line, Nash reconnects with former teammate in Dallas Mavericks superstar Dirk Nowitzki. The two future Hall of Famers talked about his what it might’ve been like had they continued playing together in Dallas rather than Nash leaving for the Phoenix Suns back in 2004.

Nash also asked his good friend and former teammate what he’d do in his position with the end drawing near. The two-time NBA MVP posed the question to Nowitzki on whether he’d come back next season considering the circumstances that Nash is currently dealing with. Nowitzki was hesitant at first, but ultimately said he wasn’t sure if he’d be able to do it considering everything that Nash has gone through just to stay on the floor.

    The thing that’s so disappointing to see on these blogs is the absolute disregard for the human side Nash was so willing to expose in this Grantland series. This access & openness while still playing the game is absolutely unprecedented. People bitch all of the time on how they hate the PC fluff but when a public figure does something genuine like this they turn up their anger? Nash is just showing the side of a man struggling with letting go of something he’s done all of his life while still passionate about it. This is a struggle all of us will face in life at some point or another and letting go is never easy, nor should it be if you truly loved what it was you’ve done/chosen to be all of your life. How many of us have walked away from a life long passion so easily? How many of us have struggled pondering a career change? The flat out disrespect thrown at Nash is disgusting. It’s a cold hard world but there’s no need to bash a man the way many have Nash.
