10 Current NBA Vets Who Deserve a Championship

Steve Nash

NBA experience: 17 Seasons (1996 - Present)
Teams played for: Phoenix Suns (1996-1998), Dallas Mavericks (1998-2004), Phoenix Suns (2004-2012), Los Angeles Lakers (2012-present)

At 39 years old, the window on Steve Nash's chances of capturing an NBA title is closing. A two-time MVP (2005, 2006), eight-time All-Star, and five-time NBA assists leader, there are few things the mercurial point guard is missing from his storied list of achievements. There's just one glaring omission for the future Hall of Famer, an NBA ring.

Having made the Western Conference Finals twice, Nash made his most recent push for an NBA title by signing with the Lakers before the start of this season. In what was billed to be a "Dream Team" of sorts, this Lakers season was marred by injuries and immaturity, the mid-season firing of Mike Brown, and ended with the Lake Show being swept by the Spurs in the first round. In what he deemed "the most frustrating" season of his career, Nash missed a career-high 32 regular season games, and averaged his fewest assists (6.7) since the 1999-00 season. What will the future hold for the 17-year veteran?
