Steve Nash, the new Brooklyn Nets head coach, spoke highly of one of his team’s superstars Kyrie Irving. In a recent interview, the two-time NBA MVP as a player described Irving as one of his favorite players of all time.

“Kyrie Irving is one of my favorite players of all time. His skill level historically is off the charts. Creative. Guts. Competitiveness. So for me to get to coach him is really a pleasure,” Nash said.

“We have a relationship going back to when he was a rookie playing against him. Got a chance to train for a couple of days in New York City after I retired. Has to be 5-6 years ago. And I got a chance to speak to him since taking the job.”
