Dragic ‘Shocked’ Nash with Rival Lakers
Phoenix Suns fans recently eating at a local Mexican restaurant found it curious when they saw their beloved former point guard Steve Nash dining with his replacement Goran Dragic. Several of those fans let Nash know what they felt about him leaving to join the rival Los Angeles Lakers.
Some fans “were saying, ‘Steve come back, Steve come back,’ ” Dragic said. “Other fans were saying, ‘Steve we got a new point guard now and we are going to beat your ass.’ ”
Dragic will need time to get used to seeing Nash in a Lakers uniform, especially considering how much Nash used to detest the Lakers.
“I was shocked,” Dragic said. “Every time we played against the Lakers he was like, ‘Let’s beat ‘em. I don’t like the Lakers.’ Now, he’s over there.”
