Old Man Nash is not dead yet! Steve Nash of the Los Angeles Lakers celebrated his 40th birthday in style on Friday night in the Lakers' 112-98 win over the Philadelphia 76ers.
The two-time NBA MVP led the Lakers with 19 points in only 28 minutes played and chipped in with five assists (one of them shown below in the second video).
Sure, Nash isn't what he used to be. Sure, Nash isn't getting what he expected to get out of his signing with the Lakers. Sure, Nash will end up retiring without an NBA championship. But plays like these (especially the breakage of Evan Turner's ankles for the lay-up) make us all yearn for the vintage day of Nash...one of the best point guards in NBA history.
Swaggy P seemed to like it, and so should you.
Vintage Steve Nash highlight pack...very well done:
