The Los Angeles Lakers have pulled the plug on the Steve Nash experiment as it appears he’s played his final minutes in the purple and gold. With various nagging injuries holding him back from being the guy he used to be, and with age finally catching up to him, the Lakers have announced that they’ve shut down Nash for the rest of the season.
Nash missing the rest of the season seems to highlight the dissapointment that has engulfed the most forgettable season in Lakers franchise history.
Mike D’Antoni officially closes the door on Steve Nash returning this season for the Lakers. “He’s not going to play.”

This could mark the first year ever in this history of human existence that the Los Angeles Lakers, Boston Celtics and New York Knicks all miss the playoffs in the same season. The pain of Lakers fans in this situation is highlighted by the fact that the Knicks just landed Phil Jackson and they didn’t, and that the Celtics are going to be much better in 2014 and Los Angeles won’t.
