Does this latest news reveal a dark secret that was meant to be kept from the general public?

As tweeted by Sam Amico of FoxSportsOhio:


Lakers will not take Jason Richardson. He supposedly has personal issue with Steve Nash. @withmalice @enc0ur

In November of 2010, literally one day after Steve Nash and ex-wife Alejandra Amarilla Nash gave birth to their third child, Matteo Joel Nash, they shocked the sports world by announcing a divorce after five years of marriage.

Rumor has it that ex-teammate, Jason Richardson played a huge role in the split.

Speculations and gossip went into a viral frenzy regarding the matter, and many suggested that Nash's newborn child was in fact not his but rather belonged to Richardson himself.

Adding fuel to the fire, Richardson was traded days after the divorce was announced.

And now, with Amico's latest report, many will begin to speculate once again.

This seems to put a question mark in the proposed trade that would send Dwight Howard to Los Angeles and Andrew Bynum to Cleveland.

It was reported that the Magic brass expected any involved teams to take back bad contracts off Orlando's books, thus wiping their slate clean for the upcoming season.

Would Cleveland find justification in absorbing a massive amount of contracts for the already-hefty contract in Bynum?

Either way, the saying still rings true: You reap what you sow, what goes around comes around.

Jason Richardson could have enjoyed the high life of Los Angeles' beaches and movie star barbies, but instead he may have to settle with the mediocrity Cleveland brings...

I hope it was worth it, Jason!
