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 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 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.
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?
