Brooklyn Nets head coach Steve Nash talks with The Undefeated’s Marc J. Spears about his new challenge.

(via NBA.com)

"the coaching itch was always there. The why is that I love to teach. I love to learn,” Nash told Spears. “I love being part of a team and building a team. And I love to compete. It has all the ingredients in terms of satisfying growing as a person, leading a team and a group of people. Learning from the people and the game. Being part of an organization and a culture. And then competition. Those are the ingredients that excite me and put me in a position to be thrilled to take this opportunity"

The Brooklyn Nets have named Steve Nash as the 23rd head coach in the franchise’s NBA history.

I really like Nash in this role. He's going to bring a very balanced approach to this team I think. With Vaughn helping him, I'm sure he'll be fine. I don't doubt there's going to be a learning curve, but you've got to assume that KD and Ky wanted him on board. He's an extremely smart, social, emotionally intelligent guy, very humble from what I've seen, and I'm going to continue to give Marks the benefit of the doubt that he knows what he's doing.

I'm not biting on any of the SAS race stuff either. I wanted nothing to do with Mark Jackson. I wouldn't have minded Ty Lue, and I just didn't want any more retreads coming through here. I'm fine with bringing in new blood for a team like ours. You know Nash has been plugged in since retiring and has been soaking in all of the basketball content he possibly could've been.

When is he going to be introduced? I can't wait to see this.

I think the only guy besides the obvious in Pop, who I may have preferred would have been Sam Cassell.

Not that Nash was even a thought, but in hindsight.

one of the biggest traits for whomever is going to coach the nets is the ability to manage the personalities - that may actually be almost as important as x's and o's. hopefully nash brings that.

Sam confuses me.....

Been in he coaching circuit for a very long time but hardly hear his name as interest for years..

Does he want to be a HC?

I haven't weighed in yet, so allow me to clarify my stance. I'm SUPER excited that we signed Steve Nash as our head coach. I was hoping for Pop, but he's the oldest coach in the history of the league, and SAS was going to coerce us to give up at least the 19th pick for him. I know that Nash doesn't have NBA head coaching experience, and that part is scary. He has reciprocal with the Canadian national team and the Warriors in an advisory capacity, and his vision for the game should translate extraordinarily well IMO.

I am sad to see the race card being an issue here. I understand it, the privilege of an MVP to leapfrog other candidates with stronger resumes. However, I believe THAT'S the biggest reason he got the job,
not his skin color.

I mean yeah, he's Steve Nash. his skin color was the furthest from my mind when he got hired, i'm worried about the inexperience

Wow...

That's gotta be one of the greatest sports quotes I've ever heard, and a really smart way of looking at things, to boot.
