    People in the NBA media are acting like KD is going to comeback and still be in his prime after an ACL tear. It unlikely that he will be a bad player but it is safe to assume that his peak years are behind him. Maybe the nash hire is more about managing workloads and injuries more than anything.

    Rivers turned out great, he’s HOF bound when his coaching days are done.

    Nash and KD have history.

    He's also 30 now so with or without the tear it was unlikely he would win more scoring titles or MVPs. However, I think he'll still be a top 10 player especially with 18 months of rest/rehab.

    I agree 100%. Point is, Nash didn't get the job because of the color of his skin. He got it because he's A) a HHOF player/one of the best PG of all time and B) His work w/ GS was seen in a very positive light.

    Please explain :facepalm:

    Stupid. Both KD and Marks have a history with Nash.

    Instead of talking about Nash getting hired a scum bag like sas does what he does and somehow makes it about race when the two black superstars signed off about the new cosch.

    I believe that white privilege does exist but there are times when it has nothing to do with being white. What a f***ing moron SAS is.

    What an absolutely out to lunch garbage take. He is a 2 time MVP, was involved with 2 rings with GSW, played the same position as Kyrie, you and Stephen A are on another planet of hating!

    Still wondering how this is white privleage?

    If anything its former popular/HHOF/famous player privilege.

    its not white privilege

    white privilege absolutely exists but this is not an example. what other coaches are available anyways? durant enjoyed working with nash in GS and of course the nets will listen to their superstar. that's pretty much it

    Agree. Lue doesn't exactly have a ton of experience and was basically a co-coach w/ LeBron and while the Nets did well in the bubble, Vaughans time in Orlando didn't exactly go great. As a former star PG himself, Nash is probably one of the most well equipped guys to deal with Kyrie

    This should be very interesting, hopefully not another Jason Kidd situation for the Nets

    Steve Nash doesn't seem like a snake type.

    Very few athletes have had to work as hard as Nash to achieve what he did, given he was one of the least athletic players in the league. Maybe he'll be a shitty coach, but he certainly wasn't gifted anything.

    Maybe Nash was not Magic athleticism wise but you cannot be a HOF player by being Joe Schmo.

    The only controversy here is just ESPN being blatant with what they do, they have personalities take positions that they know will create headlines to get clicks and people to tune in. They just like to create drama, this just happened to be a case where the vast majority sees it for what it is. I'm not even sold on SAS genuinely believing what he said. He did something similar when Luke Walton was hired by the Lakers, so he either genuinely believes it, or it's just a shtick that he amped up to get more attention this time around.

    I think the point is Nash was barely scouted coming out of Canada and then coming from a small college. He really had to prove himself.

    I wonder what his reaction would be in the 90s when Rivers + Johnson got coaching jobs with no experience.

    We often use old boys club when it comes to hockey, but it applies to every sport. Once you're in (either as a player, coach or office guy) you're in. You essentially have a job for life.

    Steve Nash made it to the NBA without having the benefit of playing HS basketball in the US like the new generation of Canadian players did before going to college.
