While the Lakers have endured a rough offseason, losing center Dwight Howard to free agency and looking at a 2013-14 campaign that probably won’t meet the organization’s lofty standards, point guard Steve Nash has been relatively quiet.
The 39-year-old Nash did say his piece when Howard vaulted L.A. for Houston, but he hasn’t been anywhere near as vocal as Kobe Bryant, for instance. However, that may well be because Nash has been a bit distracted this offseason.
Nash may be required to pay more child support to his ex-wife, Alejandra Amarilla, according to The Associated Press. Nash and Amarilla have three children.
However, there was one additional ruling by the Arizona appellate court that was a bit unconventional, as the couple was barred from disparaging each other on Twitter. The ruling noted a specific “biting criticism” on the part of Amarilla.
For the record, since the two both agreed to limit their speech as part of their 2011 divorce and joint-custody agreement, the ruling does not violate the First Amendment.
