One of the best shooters in the history of the NBA, Steve Nash basically invented the 40-50-90 club, and is nearly a lifetime member. Arguably the best passer of all time as well, Nash has accumulated all types of accolades for his stellar play throughout his career.

The Los Angeles Lakers have Nash signed through 2015 and his health seems to be deteriorating now that he is separated from the fountain of youth known as the Phoenix Suns training staff.

Nash is already a surefire Hall of Famer, so anything he does in these last few years of his career is really just gravy. Winning a title as a starter on the Lakers next year wouldn’t even change his legacy because this Los Angeles team isn’t his. Nash owned those Dallas Mavericks and Phoenix Suns teams. He already has his faced chiseled out on the point guard Mt. Rushmore.
