Steve Nash


Nash, the league's oldest active player at 40, has appeared in just 10 games this season while dealing with ongoing back and nerve injuries. Although some fans and media members think Nash should simply retire, the two-time MVP plans to continue his fight to return to the court next season so that he can claim the financial compensation owed to him during the final year of his contract. "It's just a reality," Nash said. "I'm not going to retire because I want the money. It's honest. We want honest athletes, but at the same time, you're going to have people out there saying 'He's so greedy. He's made x amount of money and he has to take this last little bit.' Yes, I do, have to take that last little bit. I'm sorry if that is frustrating to some but if they were in my shoes they would do exactly the same thing. I wouldn't believe for a minute that they wouldn't."
