Steve Nash’s Biggest Disappointment Was Not ‘Lighting It Up’ For Lakers

It has been over a month since Steve Nash last stepped on the court for the Los Angeles Lakers. Injuries have hindered Nash from playing over his two years as a Laker.

Since joining the Lakers before the 2012-2013 NBA season, Nash has only played in 60 games and any possible return this season has been questionable at best.

During an interview that aired Tuesday night on TWC SportsNet, Nash revealed his disappointment in not being able to play more for the Lakers.

When the Lakers made the move to trade for Nash, and subsequently Dwight Howard, many around the league believed the Lakers to be serious title contender. Plans did not go according to plan as Nash hit the injury shelf just two games into the season.

Howard bolted during the off-season, but optimism was still alive as the Lakers planned to begin the season with a healthy Nash and Pau Gasol leading the team as Kobe Bryant recovered from a torn achilles. Unfortunately, Nash went down six games into the season.

Many have questioned if Nash has anything left in his tank after playing in the league for for 18 years and suffering from injuries during the last two. When Nash returned for a quick stint last February, he showed he still has what it takes to provide valuable minutes when healthy.

On the night of his 40th birthday, Nash seemed to look like the Nash of old by delivering 19 points, including a behind the back crossover that led to layup, and five assists in a victory over the Philadelphia 76ers. Since then, Nash only appeared in two more games and has been sidelined ever since.

Last week, Lakers coach Mike D’Antoni believed Nash would be done for the season. However, news of Nash keeping himself in game shape and possible return later this season surfaced Monday.

With the news of Jordan Farmar’s groin injury keeping him out for two weeks, Nash just might have an opportunity to play in some games and light the city up despite the Lakers’ losing record.
