Steve Nash explained why he decided to pursue the head coaching position of the Brooklyn Nets.

Nash told Rachel Nichols of ESPN that it was time to “step out and take a challenge”.

The two-time NBA MVP and Hall of Famer signed a four-year contract with the Nets and is getting ready for his first job as head coach.

Brooklyn is expected to be a title contender next season, with Kevin Durant and Kyrie Irving back to the lineup.
