Lakers Have to Go Without Steve Nash
Lakers have to get used to playing without Steve Nash. The Lakers guard has more than he can swallow. Steve has actually been demanding for child custody from his former wife, Alejandra Amarilla Menrath. Nash accused his former wife of plotting to milk money from him in the name of child support. This is because Menrath had relocated to California with the aim of demanding more money for her upkeep. The couple has three kids, two girls and one son.
In the mean time Inquisitr has reported that Nash will not participate in the 2014-15 season due to a nerve injury that has persisted since his second game. The Lakers guard was bought from Phoenix to play for three years. The team had anticipated that the legendary player would take them far but as fate would have it, their ambition was cut shot by a nerve injury.
Though he has not said when he will be ending his career, most people are interpreting his long absence from the courts to mean that it’s a wrap. The player has so far participated in only 15 matches in the recently ended season. That means he didn’t play in 32 games. After the injury, Nash had anticipated that he would make a comeback after one week. However, that did not happen because he has been on the bench for the last two months or so.
In a statement that was released by Lakers, Nash stated that he has been doing his level best to make sure he returns to the courts as soon as he can. He argued that he could not play until his back was in good shape.
