Extra, extra, read all about it: Steve Nash had an epiphany during off-season, announces immediate retirement to start new career as a mean hockey player for the Phoenix RoadRunners. "I realized I always admired Wayne Gretzky growing up. Hey, I'm Canadian. Larry O'Brien Trophy? Phew. Why should I care about winning an NBA title when I can win a Stanley Cup in like five years?" Terry Porter in an initial reaction: Of course we were shocked when we saw Steve come in today in a hockey jersey to announce his decision. The Big Cactus was sobbing. It will be tough, but we will get over it. He is such a great human being who has done so much for this ball club that it would be cruel to stop him from fulfilling his childhood dream. I'm confident Goran Dragic can start just as well for us. [Pausing] You don't happen to have Marbury's number? Or maybe Tinsley's? Can somebody please stop that whiner Kerr from screaming 'I knew it, we are toast'? In other news, Boris Diaw now looks, uhm, different. And Shaq has a new goofy sidekick.
