Nash on Curry: “I don’t know how much I can help him”

1 Comment

Last week, a report indicated that two-time MVP and future Hall of Famer Steve Nash was joining the Warriors in a player-development capacity. The idea of Nash, one of the greatest shooters in NBA history, working with Stephen Curry, the greatest shooter in the league right now, is tantalizing and terrifying all at once. But Nash doesn’t really see what he can teach Curry at this point.

From Bay Area News Group’s Diamond Leung:

The two-time NBA Most Valuable Player award winner nodded at the mention of his new role with the Warriors in an interview with Sportsnet and was asked what reigning MVP Stephen Curry can do better.

“His laundry?” Nash said, shrugging and smiling at a fundraiser in Toronto. “I don’t know.

“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. 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.”

Overall, it’s a nice fit between the Warriors and Nash. He gets to stay involved in the game and get experience working in player development, in case he decides to go into coaching later in life. He has a long-standing relationship with Warriors head coach Steve Kerr, who was the Suns’ GM when he was in Phoenix. And he gets to watch Curry up close, even if there’s not much he can help him with.
