Maybe Steve Nash’s armpit sweat has regenerative powers?
At one point during the Lakers’ 125-112 loss to the Rockets Tuesday night, Steve Nash was seen toweling himself off during a timeout on the floor—focusing much of his effort on his sweat soaked armpits—before handing said towel to teammate Metta World Peace, who used it to dry his face off.
That’s easily the nastiest assist of Nash’s career.
Considering how decimated with injuries the Lakers squad is, maybe World Peace is onto something. It’s apparent he knew that Nash had used the towel to wipe under his arms, because you can see in the video that Metta has his eye on the Lakers guard as he’s wiping away his perspiration. Perhaps bathing himself in Nash’s armpit sweat is the reason MWP has been able to avoid the injury bug thus far.
