Reactions to Steve Nash as Head Coaching of Brooklyn Nets

in NBA

Lots of people are losing their Heads on the appointment of Steve Nash as the head coach for the Brooklyn Nets.

Let us get real here I agree on this statement at some level, experience really means a lot, but can anybody get the experience if no one gives them a start? In this case Brooklyn Nets is that kind of company or organization that people would be grateful for giving them the opportunity.

Stephen A starts off by giving compliments but then brings up White Privilege!

Stephen A goes ahead that Steve Nash having no coaching experience is an outlier and he will be exceptional. However that was the compliment that didn’t last long, he goes on and brings up “White Privilege”. He builds a case that there are more competent coaches like Mark Jackson.

Go ahead and watch the video and make your own conclusion.

Shannon and Skip opposing views on Steve Nash

Shannon is for Steve Nash, he doesn’t believe that a coach should be a master of X and O’s of basketball but believe that a basketball coach is more of facilitator, team manager that will be able to manage different players. In this viewpoint he believes in Steve Nash.

Skip likes Tyron Lue and believe he is ready to coach the Nets, however, given the success of Steve Kerr being a first time coach winning the NBA championship in the first year, he is fine with this appointment.

Hearing it from Sean Marks who Signed on Steve Nash

Now let us hear directly from Sean Marks why he signed Steve Nash as the head coach for the Brooklyn Nets.

According to him the main reason he signed Steve Nash is because of he “trust” and the “long relationship” he has had with him since his Phoenix Suns days. He goes on by saying that he has seen first hand the trust he has had with the coaching staff and the players is impressive and not something he have seen before.

Jay Williams asked Sean Marks to comment on Stephen A. comments that this is a white privilege hiring.

Sean Marks respectfully says the we are in sensitive times and understand where Stephen A is coming from but made it clear his decision was made by finding the “best person” and “best fit” for this moment of time, and that is Steve Nash.

Moving on to other comments, some Lakers fans remember the worst of Steve Nash, in this commentary by Bernard and Jose, Steve Nash was non-existent with the team and as I can remember he had a lot of conflict with the coaching staff to the point that he would not answer his calls and become unavailable to be reached. This seems to be immature of Steve and shows lack of leadership, so we do not know if he can go into these kinds of cycle when the going gets tough.

The comment above from Scorpio Girl over twitter clearly shows his disgust over Stephen A while approving of Steve Nash appointment.

How about you, do you like Steve Nash as the next head coach for the Brooklyn Net and do you think he will be successful in this role?

NBA Boycott to protest Jacob Blake shooting, NBA politically calls it Postponed Games on Bucks, Magic, OKC, Rockets, Blazers and Lakers

in NBA

If you were sitting on your couch yesterday ready to enjoy the three scheduled playoff games you were probably surprised to learn that all the games were postponed.

That is exactly what happened when players got together and decided to have a stronger voice in the racial injustice. What is termed by the NBA as postponed on their new release in actuality is a boycott of the players. Well probably the NBA got ahead of the situation and instead of having a striked-out day, they would rather declare postponed.

The Bucks first taking the lead by walking out, the news quickly spread and different teams postponed their games as well.

Here’s the list of all games postponed as a sign of protest:

NBA: Orlando Magic vs. Milwaukee Bucks (Game 5 — first round)
NBA: Oklahoma City Thunder vs. Houston Rockets (Game 5 — first round)
NBA: Portland Trail Blazers vs. Los Angeles Lakers (Game 5 — first round)
WNBA: Washington Mystics vs. Atlanta Dream
WNBA: Los Angeles Sparks vs. Minnesota Lynx
WNBA: Connecticut Sun vs. Phoenix Mercury
MLB: Cincinnati Reds vs. Milwaukee Brewers
MLB: Seattle Mariners vs. San Diego Padres
MLB: Los Angeles Dodgers vs. San Francisco Giants
MLS: Atlanta United vs. Inter Miami
MLS: FC Dallas vs. Colorado Rapids
MLS: Real Salt Lake vs. Los Angeles FC
MLS: San Jose Earthquakes vs. Portland Timbers
MLS: Los Angeles Galaxy vs. Seattle Sounders

It is unclear how long this will continue across different sports but one thing is clear they want to be heard.

Shaquille O’Neal Gives Valuable Money Advice To Young People

in NBA

Shaquille O’Neal has amassed a huge net worth of around $400 million dollars throughout his playing career and as an investor and businessman.

He has not been careful of his money early in his life and is well known to have blown $1 million dollar in one hour after he got his big payday.

As Shaq narrates – “I went through a lot of trials and tribulations. A lot of failures”

In this interview video, Shaq gives valuable advice to young people: “Alright children,” using a blank sheet of paper. “This is $100, What you want to do is, you want to rip the $100 in half.”

Take one half and “save it. Don’t ever touch it. Put it away. Don’t even look at it. Now you’ve got $50 left. Now, the smart people … the billionaires of the world, they’ll take half of that $50 and put all that away,” he says, while adding another quarter of the piece of paper to the “save pile.”

“This right here,” referring to the remaining quarter, is your fun money: “You want to buy houses, you want to buy cars, you want to buy planes, you want to travel? This right here is what you have fun with.”

O’Neal recommends only using 25% of your earnings and saving and investing 75 percent.

He finishes up with “A guy taught me that a long time ago, and it’s been working for me,”.

This is a wonderful advice and frankly it doesn’t matter how much you earn, what matters is how much you keep. While it may be harder for people earning less, the key takeaway here is to adjust your spending to a minimum to be able to save as much.
