Steve Nash Says He’s “Open” To Taking Games Off

Steve Nash is open to taking games off.

Lakers trainer Gary Vitti suggested more rest for Steve Nash and apparently the message has got to head coach Mike D’Antoni.

Steve Nash is open to the idea.

According to Nash, Lakers coach Mike D’Antoni is considering adopting a model similar to how San Antonio’s Gregg Popovich coaches Tim Duncan by giving him games off to rest throughout the season even when he is healthy.

“Mike mentioned it to me,” Nash told ESPNLosAngeles.com on Friday during a sit-down interview on the eve of the first day of Lakers training camp. “I’m open to it. Obviously I’m not the type of guy that’s going to look at the schedule and see which games I can miss — that’s never occurred to me — but if there’s a way that we can make the season better by missing a game here and there, I’m open to it.”

Resting Nash is probably the right thing to do but are the Lakers talented enough to overcome it?
