The unfortunate truth is his career has in some ways been over for a few years, he's just been to stubborn to accept it. Some players just know when the right time comes to call it quits, others push as far as they can.
Truth is that Steve Nash, however tough this news is of him missing the season is, he's probably 100% committed to returning next season.
Michael Jordan pushed himself to the point he was nothing more than just a shell with Washington.
All careers eventually come to an end.
Nash, by far, the greatest Canadian basketball player of all time. Having said that, as he nears retirement, Canada basketball is blowing up right now and it's presence is establishing itself internationally and more so in the NBA.
It would've been a great story book ending to speak about how Nash influenced the growth of the game in Canada by wearing a Raptors, but due to the lack of exposure he had it pales in comparison to what Vince Carter did for the sport in this country.
An NBA great and only the tip of the iceberg of the future of basketball in Canada.
Thanks for all the great games and memories Nash.... Definitely one of the most entertaining players of all time. I really wish he could've won a ring though, that would've been a great way to end a career for him. Him and Dirk would've been really nasty had he stayed in Dallas.
