PLAYERS: Steve Nash
TEAMS: Los Angeles Lakers

Via Larry Brown Sports:

There are several reasons Steve Nash was pleased to go to the Los Angeles Lakers in a sign-and-trade deal this past offseason, the most obvious of which is a chance to win his first NBA championship. In addition to the benefits that come with joining a talented roster, Nash also said he was looking forward to being closer to his three children. Then how do you explain this?

According to TMZ, Nash is “waging a legal war” in an attempt to prevent his ex-wife, Alejandra, from moving the former couple’s three children from Arizona to L.A. It is believed that a gag order is in place that prevents anyone from talking about the case, but TMZ also noted that Nash would have to pay significantly more in child support if his children live in California than he would with them living in Arizona.

“I can’t comment on the information you attribute to sources connected with TMZ,” well-known divorce lawyer Lance Spiegel, who was recently hired by Alejandra, said. “I confirm that I have been retained by Alejandra, that I cannot comment because of the reasons described and that Alejandra is not available for comment.”

Clearly, something doesn’t add up. It wouldn’t be fair to speculate about the reasons why Nash is reportedly trying to stop his children from being closer to him, so we’ll just have to wait and see if more details emerge. The one piece of advice we can give the Lakers point guard: Don’t show up to court dressed like this if you plan on getting your way.

Lakers take another hit at point guard

The reunion between Los Angeles Lakers point guard Steve Nash and head coach Mike D’Antoni keeps getting pushed back. I guess Nash is not healing exactly how the team had planned, but they do not want to rush the 38-year-old veteran back and risk losing him for the whole season. Nash’s backup is Steve Blake, who has been out for a few weeks with a torn abdominal muscle. Now...

Random Thoughts on Rondo, Refs, Rebounding, and More

In the wake of Rondo's suspension, not much has been said about the end of his double digit assist streak. We know it had to end sometime and in truth, it had begun to take on a life of its own in recent games. There was the controversy over Doc leaving him in the game to get his last two assists. And there had to be mounting pressure on Rondo and on his teammates. No matter...

Pacquiao spends $20K taking 50-man entourage shopping

Manny Pacquiao is a nice and generous guy, but there is a reason most people feel at some point he will end up broke. The problem with 50-man entourages is when you retire they quickly shrink to 5-man entourages. But, Manny was in a giving mood after beating Tim Bradley officially for the first time (unofficially for second time). Manny Pacquiao didn’t waste any time spending his...
