07:15 AM ET 11.11 | Even for the optimistic Lakers fan, this is nowhere near good news. Steve Nash was sidelined the second half of Sunday's 113-90 loss to the Minnesota Timberwolves because of nerve pain in his back and hamstring. As he walked out of Staples Center, he stopped to talk to a small group of reporters about his frustration. "I hesitate to even talk about it now because it's probably not a good time, I'm feeling a little emotional, but it's hard," Nash said. ... Nash will be examined Monday by back specialist Dr. Robert Watkins. He said it was "foolish" that he didn't ask [Mike D'Antoni] to be taken out of the game sooner. "The pain is always there, it's not as much of a concern," said Nash, who finished with two points and three assists.

A veteran like Nash still playing is just wrong... your counterparts are all retired... what the hell are you doing in uniform?

Every dog has his day. Steve, you've had yours! Time to say goodbye while you can still walk.

If there are teams dumb enough to sign age old stars to multi-year contracts, why blame the players?

Happy Veterans Day!!!

If Nash wants to play next season....the Lakers will use the stretch provision on him.

November 11, 2013  10:17 AM ET

Or like Mecca keeps saying....they can trade him to his homeland and he can retire there and be the ambassador of basketball.

About to watch some UFC from Saturday night.

At this point Nash is playing for the love of the game. I think he knows it is the end so I say he will have to walk away this season, just as Kidd retired last season.

November 11, 2013  10:24 AM ET

Thank you Veterans...

November 11, 2013  10:27 AM ET

We all get old Nash. Thanks for wearing the Purple/Gold on your way out...

Happy Veterans Day to all those that have served this great country. Thank you for your service. I am a proud 10-year veteran of the US Air Force. Served during the 1st and 2nd Gulf Wars. I am also the son of a US Army veteran who passed away in 2007...love and miss you, dad.
