MVP Stephen Curry grew up watching him as a role model. Steve Nash will unite with Stephen Curry in the Golden State Warriors to emancipate highly sought-after shows. Nash on Thursday confirmed that he’ll be joining the Warriors’ camp soon as part-time player development consultant.
“As I’ve told Steph, his skill level is so high that although we’ll be on the court together, I don’t know how much I can help him on the court,” said Nash. “But through watching a little bit of film and talking, maybe I can help him with situations. But his skill level is incredible, and hopefully I’ll learn as much from him as he will from me.”
The Warriors’ management hasn’t officially announced the hiring of 41-year-old Nash in a development role. Nash has worked with Golden State President Rick Welts and coach Steve Kerr for a long time in Phoenix Suns.
“We haven’t exactly confirmed that he’s going to be there, but if he was going to be there, I certainly added my endorsement to the idea,” Welts said.
“There are two things I think you think of when you think of Steve Nash and his career: preparation and discipline. I think those are the things that (he has more of), more than any other player I’ve ever been around. He has better preparation, better discipline about preparing himself for the task at hand.
“That’s a wonderful trait to share with young players, so should we be lucky enough to finalize that, I’d be a really happy guy.”
Stephen Curry who adopted two-time MVP Nash’s style in his growing up days said jokingly, “Finally we get a decent coach around here.”
