L.A. Lakers’ Steve Nash thanks the club as he says goodbye to the game

first_imgYet Nash in so many ways played above the NBA.He avoided self-commemoration. He wasn’t interested in playing general manager. In the offseasons he’d play pickup soccer games in Central Park, and several people didn’t know who he was.He has been plagued with spondylolisthesis, a back injury that is as uncomfortable as it sounds, and still played into his 40s. When he left the team and yet swung a golf club and put it on Instagram, he was slimed on the Internet, which, since he is human and has a family, bothered him. Instead of blasting the “haters” online, he wrote a dignified, grammatical letter explaining that swinging a golf club is not as hurtful to one’s back as stopping and starting on a basketball court.“I’ve had this original back problem ever since my third year in the league,” Nash said, “although now I’ve got about eight others. I was able to drive this thing way past where I thought I could get.“But I get it. I was in a tough place, personally, and I felt I had to get away. Fans don’t know the whole picture. I get that they’re passionate, especially online. There’s a bit of a pack mentality. I know we all feel bad for our kids that they have to grow up in that world. You play pro basketball for 18 years, there’s going to be criticism. I’m not saying it’s, like, awesome.”The end came Oct. 12, in Ontario, when Nash went 0 for 5 and left an exhibition game with Golden State.“There was just so much fighting every day with myself and my body, getting to some good places and then watching it diminish so quickly,” Nash said. “At the end the decision was made for me. I actually played OK that first preseason game and I woke up and I was a mess. Then I played again and thought I could break through after a few minutes. I clearly couldn’t. I thought I’d be lucky to play 10 games this year.”He played none, and 65 in the three Lakers seasons. But Nash’s signing was applauded by the media, which recognized how the invalidation of the Chris Paul trade had blindsided the Lakers. They signed Dwight Howard and headed into 2012-13 as the favorites … and do you really need to re-live what happened next?Now they have a high draft pick and maybe a good free agent coming. They see glimmers in the wilderness. Steve Nash’s goodbye is a step toward that light, as he profusely thanked a franchise that indulged him without complaint. He always could see the whole floor.Three facts:1. Steve Nash was picked 13th in the first round of the ‘96 draft, two picks behind Kobe Bryant.2. Nash led the NBA twice in free throw percentage, five times in assists.3. Nash (.9043) and Mark Price (.9039) are the only two players in NBA or ABA history to average over 90 percent from the foul line for a career. He leaves the game as a back-to-back Most Valuable Player in 2005-06, and right there with Charles Barkley, Karl Malone, Dominique Wilkins, Allen Iverson, John Stockton and Jason Kidd among the greats who never won an NBA championship.As usual, Nash spoke precisely and with great dispassion. He admitted that these were three failed seasons, although he grandly pushed himself to make it work. He said he hopes he is remembered as “a competitor” and “a great teammate,” and that he would continue to live in L.A.When he came to the Suns, they went from 29 wins to 62. He made untold money for Raja Bell and Boris Diaw and Leandro Barbosa. He commandeered the basketball but then sprinkled it expertly, like Johnny Appleseed, seeing hidden angles that his soccer-playing dad had shown him.He retires with a .490 percentage from the field, .423 from 3-point range, and an all time-best .904 from the foul line. Four times he had seasons of 50-40-90, which is a shooter’s Triple Crown. No one in the NBA will do that this season.Dick Davey, Nash’s Santa Clara coach, called him “deranged for the game.
