Rather than spread his salary out over years, the Lakers are going to bring Steve Nash back, as well as Kendall Marshall. Mike D’Antoni… I wouldn’t bet on that one.

Steve Nash has played just 10 games for the Lakers this season as the nerve root issue that bothered him last season has limited him A couple weeks ago Mike D’Antoni said he didn’t expect Nash to be back this season. He was wrong. At least according to a report from Adrian Wojnarowski of Yahoo…

Okay basketball gods, you have exacted your pound of flesh from the Lakers this season. They already are eliminated from the playoffs, they have lost more man games to injury than any other team. They have been embarrassed. You can back off now. Except they are not. Jordan Farmar will be out for at least…

Steve Nash is honest — yes, he wanted that last year and $9 million. Nash also says the obvious — every one of the people commenting on this site or calling talk shows saying he should not have played 10 games this season (too many to get a medial retirement), that Nash should have walked…

We told you this was coming on Tuesday night, but now the Lakers have made it official: Kobe Bryant is out for the remainder of this NBA season. “Obviously this has been a frustrating and disappointing season, but I appreciate all the support I’ve received from the Lakers and the fans, and look forward to…

The Lakers have lost a lot of games this season (42 to be exact), but the historic 48-point blowout loss to the Clippers Thursday night on national television hit the fan base hard. Many of these fans rooting for them to lose and get a better draft pick were embarrassed at the lack of defensive…
Report: Lakers will wait for 2015 free agents like Kevin Love unless they can get LeBron (Sorry, Melo)
Mar 5, 2014, 10:45 AM EST
The Lakers are poised to make a big free agent splash this summer or the next, and Steve Nash is the lynchpin to the decision. If the Lakers want to go big this offseason, they’ll use the stretch provision on Nash, spreading the amount they owe him across the cap the next three years. But…

Honestly, most sports books blow. I can’t read them. Jeff Pearlman’s books — “Sweetness,” “The Bad Guys Won!” and “Boys Will Be Boys” — are the exception. The former Sports Illustrated columnist (remember he wrote the legendary John Rocker story for the magazine) combines tireless research and great storytelling. It’s just great writing. His latest…

Jermaine O’Neal has spent three careers in the NBA. He entered the league as its youngest player – undercutting Kobe Bryant by a few months – and spent four seasons in Portland buried on the bench. Then, he went to Indiana and made six straight All-Star games, even finishing third in 2004 MVP voting. Afterward,…

Steve Nash’s season is over. At least, Mike D’Antoni thinks so. Nash hasn’t played in three weeks, and he’s played just 10 games all season. He’s also 40, the NBA’s oldest player. When you get that age, serious injuries aren’t viewed as potentially season-ending. They’re all viewed as potentially career-ending. Nash isn’t ready to retire,…

In the most recent documentary video (via Grantland) about Steve Nash’s attempt to return to the NBA following a nerve root issue, you can see he is shaken when he learns of the “stretch provision” of the new CBA. He was afraid if he didn’t return this season the Lakers would use this provision —…

You don’t get to be an NBA player, a professional athlete at an elite level, without some ego. Steve Nash has one. Certainly not one that is out of control, but he knows his NBA career is winding down and he wants to leave the game on his terms. He wants to contribute. In this…

A draft prospect who grew up overseas really wanted to play for the Los Angeles Lakers. But a team drafting before the Lakers also wanted the player. So, the player threated to sign with a foreign team if he couldn’t go to the Lakers. Safe to say, the Nets wish they had called Kobe Bryant’s…
Feb 26, 2014, 9:31 AM EST
It’s obviously been a bit of a rough season for the Lakers, and especially so for Pau Gasol. Gasol was once again embroiled in what have been seemingly annual trade talks, only to see him remain with the team now that the deadline has passed. He’s been injured off and on, though not to the…

Steve Nash hasn’t lost the deep competitive fire he feels for the game of basketball, but his body has begun to betray him to the point that the ability to extend his career beyond this season has become a legitimate concern. Nash has said that his recent string of injuries and the constant rehabilitation they…
