On New Orleans Pelicans guard JJ Redick’s podcast, Brooklyn Nets superstar forward Kevin Durant made his first comments about the Nets hiring two-time MVP and Hall of Famer Steve Nash as the team’s new head coach.

As expected, Durant is ready to get to work with Nash, who is one of the best point guards in NBA history.

The Nets’ hiring of Steve Nash came as a shock to many since he has no coaching experience on his belt.

However, Kevin Durant and Nash have a close friendship and that clearly played a part in Brooklyn’s decision to hire the former Phoenix Suns floor general.

Durant missed the entire 2019-20 season recovering from his Achilles tear. The two-time Finals MVP, who has career averages of 27.0 points, 7.1 rebounds and 4.1 assists with the Oklahoma City Thunder and Golden State Warriors, is 100 percent and will make his Nets debut in 2020-21.

The Nets are widely expected to compete for a championship next season with Durant and All-Star point guard Kyrie Irving leading the charge. It’s going to be fascinating to see how Nash does in his first season as a coach.

The one thing Nash has working for him is that his basketball IQ is off the charts and he has two of the best scorers in the game on his side in Durant and Irving.
