The great Suns version of Steve Nash is gone
He simply can't play the game at a high level anymore. And that's alright. Nash isn't the first Hall of Fame athlete to not know when to call it quits.
Let's go back in time. About 16 months ago when I broke the news that Nash was traded to the Lakers for two first-round picks and two second-round picks. He was going to L.A. so he could 1) be close to his children 2) team up with Kobe and chase that elusive ring and 3) get paid as the Lakers gave him a three-year, $28 million dollar deal.
Sure it sucked to have Nash in the jersey of the hated Lakers. It sucked thinking about him playing against the Suns in that awful yellow and purple jersey. Especially after he told the Suns fan base that he would have a hard time ever playing for the hated enemy.
