The Brooklyn Nets, who made the decision, replaced Steve Nash
This season, the first replacement coach of the National Basketball Association (NBA) came out. The main character is Steve Nash, director of the Brooklyn Nets.
Citing sources, ESPN, a U.S. sports media outlet, said on the 2nd that “Brooklyn replaced Nash.” Nash became the first manager to be replaced during the season. Nash won 161 games (94 losses) in Brooklyn.
Brooklyn, led by Nash, fell to 12th place in the Eastern Conference with 2 wins and 5 losses. Nash has been embroiled in rumors of discord with key players such as Kevin Durant and Kyrie Irving since the offseason, and has been under fire for his worst performance at the beginning of the season due to tactical problems and controversy over overwork. In the end, the club also made a decision. ESPN said one of the coaches, Jacques Vaughan, will lead the game against the Chicago Bulls on the 2nd.
When he was active, Nash was a point guard representing the NBA. It was a legend that boasted a brilliant career of eight All-Stars, five assists, and two regular season MVPs.
After retiring from active duty in 2015, he held a position as a consultant for the Golden State Warriors’ player development and took over as a manager of Brooklyn in September 2020. Brooklyn trusted him with a four-year contract, but eventually gave up his coaching job in disgrace.
