Steve Nash Praises The Fan Base, Ready To Move On From Dwight Howard

It was the most difficult season of Steve Nash’s career as he broke his leg in the Lakers’ second game against the Portland Trail Blazers. Nash returned early to help the Lakers make the playoffs, but the injury never fully healed and he was eventually shut down in the first round against the San Antonio Spurs.

After an off-season of rehabilitation, Nash looks to redeem himself this season and prove that he’s still one of the best point guards in the game. Despite the difficulties he encountered in his first season with the Lakers, he ultimately enjoys playing for the Lakers and fan base:

“It was a great experience to play for the Lakers, to be a part of this community, and to play for this fan base. It’s an amazing opportunity and experience that I’ve completely embraced.”

When asked about Dwight Howard’s departure, Nash believes that everyone has moved on from the situation including the passionate fan base:

“I think Lakers fans have such pride and passion for their team and the history of the club. I think in the end, Dwight didn’t want to be here. I think they were happy to move on. There’s a tremendous history here and the fans are incredibly passionate. I think they want people who are Lakers, who want to be Lakers. I think everyone kind of moved on.”

While this will only be Steve Nash’s second season in Los Angeles, he truly understands what it means to be a Laker. Nash also made a great point about the passionate fans. At the end of the day, the fan base wants players who want to wear the purple and gold armor and represent the city. Regardless of what the media says, most players want to play for the Lakers at one point in their careers and that won’t change because an All-Star center decided to leave.
