Teach them to play the triangle offense

Bumblin’ Biden

Here’s what you do......all three of them get three games in a row to hit the shot at the end of each quarter 12 defining shots. rotate every three the end of the regular season we tally up who had the most end of quarter makes and that’s who’s taking the final shot in the playoffs.

Tony JR

They shouldn't lose not one game


I predict Irving or Harden will pull a Robert Horry, and throw a towel in Nash's face in order to force a trade. SMH

juan esteban arias gongora

Did they even as Nash if he wanted harden?

Guilherme Dias Rodrigues Miranda

Three NBA superstars where two are super-divas or a 4-11-1 NFL team with no cap room and a QB controversy: Which is the toughest?

Isaac Rivas

Wow when did Kyrie said that about Coach Nash

Armandito Perez

What are the odds the Nets score 100 point in the first half this Saturday?

King k



I can imagine all 3, Kyrie, KD and harden yelling at the top of their lungs and throwing tampons at eachother while Nash is in the middle with a blank expressions regretting this coaching job as some tampons ricochet off his face... lmao in all seriousness can’t wait to see what this team looks like


I hope all the owners and fans out there know that Steve Nash was set up to here and I hope he gets another chance else where.

At the 1:20 mark he says the three are capable defenders. I guess he hasn't seen Harden play defense.

Satish Nepal

They gonna fire him so d’antoni gets his ring lol


Did they change the title or something?

Cos it says toughest job in american sports not toughest job in America

B'alam K'inich

I dont care, I wouldnt have given up Caris. I would have gone as far as an extra 1st and another pick swap to keep Caris. Jarrett Allen is gonna be tough to replace as well, but Caris could take a game over and still get everyone involved.
Could have put Harden at the 1, Kyrie at the 2, Caris at the 3, KD at the 4 and whoever at the 5 because with those 4 you got the best small ball line up in the game bar none. Harden would have to accept facilitating. He could easily be the biggest focus point of the defenses they face so it would be best to get him to bring the ball down and get things in motion for everyone else. I can easily see Harden taking on Nashs player role with the suns. Be the biggest offensive threat and use it to get everything else opened up. Nash just didnt have KD to sling the rock too.
I also actually think Nash can keep these guys in check tho. Hes hungry, it's easy to see.

Mahzar Fazhar

Came to see if people would comment what I was thinking. Wasn’t disappointed. Just get rid of this show please. Give Woj 30 minutes to update us on basketball and tweets. Be better than this...

Oon planet earth
