No stranger at working hard to rehab from an injury himself. LA Lakers guard Kobe Bryant says teammate Steve Nash did everything to make a triumphant return to the court possible.
“You can control what you can control,” Bryant said before the Lakers’ final preseason game, a 93-92 loss to the Sacramento Kings on Friday night. “He did everything to get back and play at a high level. From that standpoint he should be able to sleep at night. I know I would. I can only think about that in my situation; I just tried to do everything possible to be ready, and if it wasn’t in the cards, if I couldn’t get back to being at that level, you just have to accept it and when you lay your head down you know that you did absolutely everything possible.”
Nobody knows if Nash will be calling it a career for good, if he was to serve as a mentor to Jeremy Lin for the season. It wouldn’t be a bad idea. Just saying.
