I read that he plans to retire after the season. Do you think the Lakers should make him the head coach or will he just be like too much like Dantoni or be in a situation similar to KIDD?! Or do you guys think hes ready?

Nobody knows for sure, but he could be a really good offensive coordinator. he gon have to hire a defensive minded assistant.

I think he'll turn out to be the next Jason Kidd. I don't see him having any success.

Yea I think the NBA should do it like the NFL where they have offensive and defensive coordinator then a Head coach.

If Kidd can be a coach then sure why not Nash.

I think he will retire and then come back to PHX as an assistant coach and learn from Hornacek and give Dragic & Bledsoe some more tips.

As long as he has a cozy Phil Jackson chair, sure. The dude can't even walk anymore.

Thats not applicable because the 2 often intertwine, some coaches may disagree on emphasizing transition balance vs offensive rebounding for example.

I think he will be a very good offensive coach, yes. But he will need a top assistant to handle the defense.

lol you assume he doesn't understand NBA defense because he wasn't a great defensive player. lol. Nash is a brilliant mind, has an unfailing work ethic, and won 2 MVP's in a foreign league with superior athletes all over the place.

You're underestimating him.

Who wouldnt want to play for Steve Nash? I don't get all the defensive cordinator talk, Nash was a smart defender but IQ only goes so far when he had to guard super athletic PG's.

I thought he said a while back that he wasn't interested in coaching and would prefer to do more movie directing/producing?

He should learn from Kidd and not try and jump into things too quickly - like for example taking a head coaching job a season after retirement. This shouldn't be a new trend.. especially considering the leap of success Kidd has experienced (sarcasm obviously intended). Maybe take an assistant coaching job, gain some experience, and then vie for a HC job.

arent most coaches this way ?

for example casey is all about D but doesnt know a lick about offensive plays. Maybe toronto can use a good offensive coordinator. :p

How many years do you see him being a "great coach"? And will it still be with the Nets?

LOL @ all the defensive assistant requirement. Just because he was not known for his defense doesn't mean he doesn't thoroughly understand the principles of that side of the court. Cmon people. Nobody knows for sure whether he would be a great coach or not but this assumption of not capable of instilling defensive mentality on his team is just lame. For all we know he is a great basketball mind and a pure genius at that. Time will tell.

Would be awesome. I think the assistant to Hornacek in PHO makes a lot of sense in the next couple years

Can you say Mike D'Antoni?

I'm pretty sure he already said he has no intentions of becoming a coach.

I have a really hard time believing he will pass up 10 mil and retire.
Regarding coaching, I see him more as a shooting coach than anything right now. Assistant for a bunch of years and go from there.

That's the thing. Just because someone doesn't play D doesn't mean they don't understand it. Nash wasn't athletically gifted to guard maybe in the league but he did understand it. I don't think he'd be a similar coach as Coach D

Which right now, is a head coach with half a season's worth of experience, of which half he has had a good ton of success. What point are you trying to make, no BS I'm not following?

Maybe in 5-7 years just not yet. Guy seems like he'd be a laid back coach so he could work as a coach eventually.

being a below .500 team when you had contending aspirations isn't a "good ton of success." Yes, extenuating circumstances like injuries and age account for lowering the bar of expectations, and that's not Kidd's fault, but I wouldn't say Kidd has had success yet as a coach.

Yea I know thats why theres a head coach to make the final call.
