Steve Nash is not retiring since he wants the money
March 14 , 2014
Steve Nash has only appeared in 10 games this season but has suffered several injuries, leading to people discussing if he should hang it up.
However, the two-time MVP doesn't think that would be the best decision for him. "The reality is, I'm not going to retire because I want the money."
Nash couldn't be blamed considering that his contract is expected to pay him $9.7M, which is a high payment to walk away from. The 40-year-old is one of the greatest players of the generation and shouldn't give up just because a few fans suggest that he should.
Besides, the Lakers promised him $9.7M and Nash has every right to ask them to pay him.
