03:29 PM ET 11.20 | Los Angeles Lakers point guard Steve Nash is not getting any younger and the injuries continue to pile up as he gets up there in age. Recently, the time that Nash has had to take off related to back pains has led to rumors of a potential retirement, which were once again brought to the forefront by NBA writer Peter Vecsey. Of course, the rumors seem to be just that and there is no real reason to believe Nash will not be returning to the court. In fact, Lakers coach Mike D'Antoni recently said that there has been no discussion about shutting Nash down or having him walk away, so we can put those rumors to rest.

Yeah, I figured he would not retire but he hurts the team. At 39-40 you can't do the same things you did at 35-30; the body gets old quicker after you reach 35; a lot of tell tale signs would suggest to him it's time to leave court. I remember watching Kareem and Robert Parrish play well into their 40's and it was not a good sight. The sky hook was not the sky hook and that jumper Parrish made frequently when younger was not dropping. Nash never played defense when he was younger so imagine what it's like now for him to even think defense (computer freeze).
