Do the Lakers regret signing Steve Nash?

Published Add your comment

Since being acquired by the LA Lakers, point guard Steve Nash has played in less than 50% of the sides games. 

The former Phoenix Suns and Dallas Mavericks all-star has been troubled by injury in his ageing years and this current spell in Los Angeles is potentially harming the great man's legend and reputation.

So when asked if he regretted ever signing Nash, general manager Mitch Kupchak said he wouldn't do anything differently.

"No regrets," Kupchak said to ESPN. "You have to recognize where you are as a franchise and we felt we had a two-year window, maybe three, to go for a championship and that's what we did."

"Looking back on it, which nobody can do, that's a different story. But at the time, we knew exactly what we were doing."

Nash missed Thursday's 107-103 loss against the Oklahoma City Thunder with nerve root irritation in his back, adding to the long list of medical problems that have plagued him since becoming a Laker.

The guard suffered a non-displaced leg fracture in his second game with the side and has been made to miss significant amount of games with a recurring right hip and hamstring problem suffered at the end of last season. 

The Nash experiment has failed in LA and now there's serious doubt as to how much longer the number 10 will be wearing the famous purple and yellow jerseys.
