Steve Nash has had a tough time since signing with the Lakers before the 2012-13 season. A host of injuries have reduced him to a shadow of his former self. Is it time for him to just step aside and retire?

On Tuesday, he left after playing only 17 minutes against the Utah Jazz because of discomfort in his leg and back.

Nash has played in 60 of a possible 134 games for the Lakers, and his injuries the last two seasons read like a bad episode of “Grey’s Anatomy”: broken leg, stiff neck, sore ankle, painful hip, irritated hamstring, bad back, lame knee.

Of course, when he does play he’s still good, averaging 11.9 points and 6.3 assists per game.


But is it time for him to go? Vote in our poll and let us know what you think.
