PHOTO: Nash’s Milestone Hilariously Met With Retirement Ad At Staples
[new_royalslider id=”135″]

Despite having a stellar night in which he moved into third on the all-time NBA assists list, Steve Nash does not know if he will play another game this season. Nash suffered yet another setback with his nerve issues that date back to when he suffered a broken leg last season.

Nash’s time with the Lakers has not gone as planned. Nash, along with Kobe Bryant, was supposed to form the best backcourt in the NBA, but Father Time had other plans. Injuries to his back and leg have hampered Nash throughout his time with the Lakers and have limited his appearances on the court.

With Nash set to make over $9 million next season, fans have been calling for the two time MVP to retire. Ironically enough, when Nash checked out of the game last night, an ad for “Presidential Official Retirement” popped up on the jumbotron.

While the ad certainly has no significance, it may be foreshadowing Nash’s next move. Nash has had an illustrious career but he just wasn’t able to carry that success over to the Lakers. With Nash’s future hanging in the balance, retirement may be his next stop.
