As a player, Steve Nash achieved amazing success, leading the Suns to the top of the standings for years before retiring as one of the greatest point guards to ever play the game.
As a coach, however, Nash isn't nearly as accomplished. Since taking over as coach, the Nets have been a disorganized mess both on and off the court. And with little postseason success to show for his tenure, one could say that Steve's run in Brooklyn was a failure.
It's why the Nets fired him just a few games into the season, and why Kevin Durant asked for his job before the season even started. Now, Nash is out after just two seasons and Durant is no doubt partly responsible for it.
Kevin Durant was the one who seemingly asked for Nash, but he really didn't give him much of a chance before giving up on him completely. On Undisputed Wednesday morning, NBA analyst Shannon Sharpe went after the 2x champ for not sticking with his guy.
