Brooklyn coach reconciled with the NBA star who tried to fire him

Steve Nash, coach of the Brooklyn Nets in the North American Basketball Association (NBA), holds no grudge against Kevin Durant, who first requested a change in the summer and then linked his stay to the coach’s dismissal.


They are on good terms with each other, they discussed what happened, and everything is as it was before,” the Canadian coach said in his press conference on Tuesday. We have a long history with Kevin and I love him. Disagreements happen in the family, we have already put the latter behind us – said Nash, who was twice the most expensive player in the league.

He added that he never assumed for a moment that Durant meant his words completely. Not everything is black and white. Many things have been said, but not all of them cover the reality. When the time comes, I’ll ask Kevin and the other participants exactly what happened Nash stated.

Brooklyn reached the playoffs last season, but lost in the first round against the finalist Boston Celtics 4-0. On Thursday, the 34-year-old Durant asked Nets management to make a deal, and after that failed, he told owner Joe Tsai he would only stay if general manager Sean Marks and Nash were fired. Ultimately, none of that happened, and the two-time champion basketball player will begin his 15th NBA season as a Nets player on October 19 against the New Orleans Pelicans.
