Steve Nash is disputing reports that he’s on the brink of retiring.
During a conversation with ESPN L.A., Nash is vowing to return from his back injury, and says he wants to finish out his contract with the Lakers on a high note.
“No,” Nash said after Lakers shootaround Friday in advance of their game against the Golden State Warriors when asked whether retirement has crossed his mind. “Not at all. I don’t know where that came from. For me, I realize I have about 18 months left of basketball. I want the most out of this that I can possibly get. I don’t know if that’s going to be one game or the vast majority of what’s left.
“But I’ve got a long life without basketball so I don’t want to give in too soon. I want to try to make the most of this opportunity to play, if I can.”
Nash said he’s feeling a little bit better.Powered by Sidelines
