Steve Nash may be 39, but the man doesn't have any plans to retire. Nash was in court on Wednesday dealing with a personal matter, and while sworn under oath, stated that he intends to continue his basketball career, according to an exclusive report from TMZ:

39-year-old Steve Nash swore under penalty of perjury ... the Los Angeles Lakers star has no plans to hang up his jersey and retire from basketball, TMZ has learned.

In fact, Steve said he has more than a year left on the lease for his sweet pad in Manhattan Beach, the city that a bunch of the Lakers call home.

Nash appeared in 50 games through the regular season for the Los Angeles Lakers and played in two games during the playoffs. It comes as no surprise that Nash intends to continue his playing career, but this serves as another confirmation from the man himself.

Nash is under contract with the Lakers for $19 million over the next two seasons. Injuries plagued his first season with the L.A. as he dealt with a fractured fibula to open the season, and hamstring issues and hip spasms as the season came to a conclusion. If Nash does play out the remainder of his contract, he will be 41 before his contract expires.
