Steve Nash reveals how he plans to use Kevin Durant, Kyrie Irving on offense
New Brooklyn Nets head coach Steve Nash talked about how he’s going to use superstars Kevin Durant and Kyrie Irving on offense next season with New Orleans Pelicans shooting guard J.J. Redick on Redick’s podcast.
Nash, who has a rapport with both Irving and Durant, can’t wait to get to work with the Nets stars.
Via Nets Daily:
“Ky is a weapon off the ball. Kevin can play all five positions and I plan to use him in all five positions,” Steve Nash said about Kyrie Irving and Kevin Durant.
“(Me and Kyrie) have had a relationship since his rookie year. It’s something I’m looking to develop. Obviously, I have a much more developed and longer history with Kevin, but with Ky, I’m excited. He’s one of my favorite players. He’s kind of a savant with the basketball. But also to get to know him off the court.”
The Nets are certainly going to be title contenders next season with Durant and Irving leading the way on offense.
While Nash is a rookie head coach and has never coached on any level, he is a two-time MVP and Hall of Famer. The former Phoenix Suns superstar was also one of the smartest players in the NBA during his playing career, so that knowledge should transfer over to the Nets players.
Nets fans can’t wait to see Durant and Irving play together in 2020-21. Uncle Drew put on a show for Brooklyn fans in 2019-20 in the 20 games he played in before going under the knife to address a shoulder injury.
KD, meanwhile, is one of the best scorers in NBA history and motivated to get back on top after missing the entire 2019-20 season recovering from his Achilles tear.
