You gotta problem with that?, says Steve Nash;
Steve Nash has appeared in just 10 games this season for the Los Angeles Lakers. The two-time MVP and future Hall of Famer has battled leg and back injuries all season, leading to widespread discussion among fans and media that he should hang it up.
Nash doesn’t see it that way. In a new Grantland video documenting his recovery, he lays it out in simple terms:
“The reality is, I’m not going to retire because I want the money.”In this case, he's due almost $10 million if he shows up for next season, healthy enough to play or not. It's a capitalistic act between consenting adults.
