2021 champs. .

JAY-Z, Kevin Durant, Brooklyn Nets always wanted Steve Nash as their head coach, following recent backlash of the hiring. Last week, the Brooklyn Nets received criticism for the hiring of Steve Nash, as their next head coach.

Considering the NBA legend has no experience on the sidelines, many felt that the job should have went to a more qualified person. This led to backlash from media and fans, over not hiring candidates like David Fizdale, Tyronn Lue, Jason Kidd, J.B. Bickerstaff and Mark Jackson.

What the public does not know, is that Steve Nash was always the plan for Roc Nation and the Brooklyn Nets front office. Dating back to his days with the Golden State Warriors, Kevin Durant was one of the main lobbyists for Steve Nash there.

Unlike Steve Kerr, he worked extensively with Nash in Oakland, as the two developed an immediate friendship. From playing against each other in the past, Steve teaching the greatest offensive threat in the history of the league some of his own IQ spoke volumes.

So much, that even Kyrie Irving wanting the upstart new coach on the team as well, since he connects with younger players. It is only so far you can go with egos of superstars in the league, especially if they do not respect the philosophies of older coaches.

This has nothing to do with the previously mentioned coaches, because we’re sure neither Durant nor Kyrie has anything against them – BUT THEY WANTED STEVE NASH. This was not a front office decision from the Nets. JAY-Z had heavy influence on this decision to possibly bring the first NBA championship to New York City in almost 50 years.

The most important thing at Roc Nation, is to ensure their two biggest basketball players feel comfortable at work. Considering Durant is feeling the best he is ever felt in his career, the league is officially on notice after the hiring of Nash.
