VIDEO: Steve Nash’s Retirement Press Conference

The Los Angeles Lakers hosted Steve Nash’s retirement press conference at the Toyota Sports Center on Tuesday afternoon. Nash opened the conference by thanking the Buss family and the entire organization for their unwavering support in Los Angeles.

I was treated incredibly in my time here, unparalleled level of support. I’ll forever be grateful for that,” Nash said on Tuesday. “I’ve never wanted something more and I’ve never worked harder and it just wasn’t meant to be.”
