Steve Nash, Lakers, are having fun clowning around and beefing on Twitter

Just when you thought things could not become more weird in Lakerland, two-time MVP Steve Nash decided to joust with a Twitter user. In response to a Tweet, the injured Lakers’ guard replied “I’m the hardest 41 yr old you know Brodie. Watch your mouth or temecula.”

Steve Nash warns fan about how hard he is

This comes on the heels of Nick ‘Swaggy P’ Young, Jordan Hill, Carlos Boozer and Jeremy Lin embarrassing this once proud franchise in a post-game interview after winning an overtime game against the Boston Celtics, ending an eight-game losing streak. Kobe Bryant appeared on The Jimmy Kimmel Show and had a classic “Kobe state” reaction to his teammates antics. Coach Byron Scott joined in Kobe’s lack of enthusiasm:

“Kobe’s reaction was pretty much my reaction when I was watching it,” Scott said. “I was just shaking my head like, ‘I can’t believe this. That’s not us as Lakers. That’s not how we act. It showed a lack of professionalism.”

This just may be the worst Lakers team in history, but that hasn’t stopped them from keeping social-media sites popping with their non-basketball chicanery. Steve Nash may have gotten the “lolz,” but I’m pretty sure Lakers’ fans would prefer to see him run pick-and-roll instead of his videos playing golf and talking about how “hard” he is on Twitter.

40 Water Under The Bridge As Bryant Scores 27 Points In 28 Minutes

Kobe Bryant and Gordon Hayward both received lucrative contract extensions during the off-season.

The two battled during exhibition play with Bryant winning the personal battle, while Hayward’s Utah Jazz squad won the war, 119-86.

But that didn’t stop Bryant from jostling in the post with Hayward, once even drawing an offensive foul. As with Steph Curry a few nights earlier, he took on the challenge of fiercely harassing Hayward in a supposedly meaningless game.

Bryant played with purpose after being ranked ESPN as the 40th best-player.

“I’ve known for a long time that they’re a bunch of idiots,” said a wry smiling Bryant.

He continued to display excellent footwork and court savvy, including putting rookie Rodney Hood in the popcorn machine on a three-point play in the first quarter. He is effectively utilizing the screen-roll, and showed he can still get to the basket by driving past Hayward for a dish to Carlos Boozer.

“I would just hate to be one of the guys that doubted him,” Scott said. “I know he’s going to get stronger. I think he’ll have the last laugh.”

Kobe Bryant scored 27 points and Carlos Boozer had 17, but the Lakers couldn’t hit from beyond the arc, missing all five attempts.
