The first episode of the “The Finish Line” by Bill Simmons’ Grantland.com showed a different side of Los Angeles Lakers point guard Steve Nash and his struggle in the twilight of his NBA career.
Nash talked about wanting to get back on the floor and the frustration that comes with watching in the back of Staples Center rather than playing. The first episode gave an inside look at Nash’s battle to fight off Father Time while Lakers fans continue to push for his retirement.
In the second episode, Nash turns 40 and has a throwback performance on his birthday providing hope that he may finally be able to produce like the player of old once again. Unfortunately, it was long before Nash was dealing with the same nerve issues and talk of retirement and the Lakers potentially using the stretch provision on the veteran point guard resurfaced.
