NASH BRIDGES: Lakers G Steve Nash appeared on NBC’s “The Tonight Show” last night and presented host Jay Leno with his No. 10 Lakers jersey. Leno noted, “Now, some Suns fans (are) very upset that you left.” Nash: “There's a couple.” Leno then asked, “Do you hear from them?” Nash: “You know, (they’ve) been overwhelmingly supportive actually. A lot of people have been really thrilled for me to have a great opportunity and thanked me for my eight years there recently. But there have been some people that were very angry” (“The Tonight Show,” NBC, 9/18).
