    Finally, Nets will be able to stay on sides on a break.

    Big risk asking a guy with no coaching experience to manage two of the whiniest personalities in the NBA.

    He handled diva mode Amare and Matrix at his whiniest, and basically did D’Antoni’s job for him, so he at least has some experience there.
    That's true, managing the Amare/Marion drama was something Nash did, D'antoni did jack on that front. At one point Nash actually asked the Arizona Republican to run a story on the front cover of the sports section about how important Marion was because Marion felt underappreciated

    As whiny as they were though, neither one was half as much of a cancer as Kyrie is

    Or maybe KD and Kyrie are the ones who wanted Nash?

    And let's not forget Mark ended up creating a toxic environment in GS

    Why are KD and Flat Earth considered a championship base? With CIA Popped to lead them. I wish it would have happened.

    FOH.

    Doesn’t work with the NBA because it is a league that has done the same with former black players. Derek Fisher and Jason Kidd got head coaching gigs with no coaching experience. Joe Dumars and Michael Jordan got top executive positions with no experience. Go back to Magic coaching the Lakers with no experience.

    This one doesn’t fit white privilege. Doesn’t smell like it. Doesn’t work in a league that has promoted the hiring of black candidates with no experience.

    Makes sense. Nash lives in the area and is already friends with Durant. Guys like KD and Kyrie don't want somebody like Pop screaming at them every practice. They want a former player that will act as their puppet/buddy.

    He’s probably hoping this is another Golden State Steve Kerr situation where with Durant/Kyrie you can win 50+ games without even trying and build up a fake reputation and then never be out of work due to that.
    Sure, but even then. I saw Nash in the same mold as Manu or Dirk. Smart guys that would be fully capable of being NBA coaches, but that just don't feel like it. They would much rather spent their lives doing anything else.

    Steve needs that paper. He’s got a bunch of kids now, all young.

    Isn’t his current girlfriend/wife still in her 20s or some ? Prolly more rugrats in the future.

    As JamStone said, Nash needs the money for the child support payments.

    He'll be a good coach with some early success and then get thrown under the bus by Durant when KD doesn't win. Basically he'll be JKidd 2.0, soon to be an assistant on another franchise.

    Must have burned through that free 10m he got from the Lakers.

    Yeah and this he's tight with Durant and to a lesser extent Irving talk ignores the fact that Jackson supposedly is too and to a lesser extent Lue.

    There's no problem with it in and of itself obviously other than what it represents: Another job with potentially contending type talent going to a white guy.

    Jackson and Lue suck though.

    This and Fizdale a prominent black coach said the same.SAS screamed about it ...but only good point made is black coaches get the job ops and are gone in a year or two ...nets on paper looks like a great job but with a ton of pressure...
