    Are the Brooklyn Nets Problems Solved Firing Steve Nash?

    There’s no secret Steve Nash wasn’t great; however, the Brooklyn Nets’ problems are far from solved. According to CBS Sports, the Nets decided to part ways with Nash on Tuesday. Yet, they have solved a problem by creating another one.

    The Hall of Fame and beloved player around the league may not have been the best suited to coach. However, he did have assistant coaching experience at Golden State.

    Nash’s first time as many egos and dysfunction surrounded the head coach. Therefore, it is hard to assess Nash’s ability as a coach honestly.

    Nonetheless, the Nets are looking for a new head coach, and many have suggested former Celtics HC Ime Udoka as an alternative.

    This offseason, Udoka found himself in a scandal that resulted in being suspended for the season. However, Udoka is looking to be a key target for the Nets in the future, and with his history of being a head coach, many believe he can save their season.

    Udoka’s roots in the Nets stem back to Nets GM Sean Marks and him being close friends. The relationships are there. He also previously was on the Nets coaching staff in previous years. This may be an ideal landing spot and unique situation for an HC with a troubled past.

    Will the Superstars Respect Udoka More than Steve Nash?

    Many are questioning if the superstars Kyrie Irving and Kevin Durant will buy into Udoka as we advance if he’s signed as the head coach. While in his first year coaching, he did find a way to lead the very young Boston Celtics team to the NBA finals. The most significant factor will seemingly be Irving.

    Recently, Irving tweeted some controversial tweets regarding people of the Judaism faith. This went viral, many were upset, and he received much backlash. Many believe Udoka will be able to reign in Irving’s antics and distractions off the court he continues to bring while chasing a championship. However, Irving is not the only factor in the equation.

    While Durant isn’t nearly as filled with antics as Irving, he still knows how to cause trouble when unhappy. In fact, this offseason, he requested to be traded or asked for Nash and Marks to be fired. This will be an uphill battle for any coach they bring. However, if given to the right person, there’s an opportunity they can turn this around.
