So Steve Nash has passed his first test. He aced his introductory press conference, admitting to “skipping the line” and noting that there is “white privilege” ... although he argued he didn’t believe it was relevant to his hiring. He said all the right things about Kevin Durant and Kyrie Irving but was vague in answering questions on the roster and the offense he plans to run. He did not, however, shy away from championship aspirations.
Bottom line: he was articulate and probably helped some fans get over whatever anxiety they had about the Nets hiring a player without NBA coaching experience .
