Former NBA champion Stephen Jackson is convinced that the Brooklyn Nets should hire Tyronn Lue if they want to reach their full potential. He pointed that the current Los Angeles Clippers assistant will demand respect from the team’s biggest stars Kevin Durant and Kyrie Irving.

As one of the biggest Lue’s achievements, Jackson mentioned the win in NBA Final when his Cavaliers were down 1-3 to Golden State.

“Tyronn Lue is the guy. He’s going to hold guys accountable, he has the experience — how many coaches can win a championship down 3-1? He’s going to demand respect from everyone, KD & Kyrie included. They’re not going to be bigger than the team if Tyronn Lue is the coach.”
