Kevin Durant 'excited' to work with Nash

Appearing on JJ Redick's The Old Man and the Three podcast, Kevin Durant delivered his first public comments about new Brooklyn Nets head coach Steve Nash.

"I'm excited," Durant said. "Anytime a former player gets a job as a coach in the league I'm excited because their level of knowledge for the game runs deep, especially the experience on the floor.

"[Nash's] insight for the game, his communication, how he communicates the game of basketball is definitely going to help me as a player develop and it's going to help the rest of our team. And our relationship started from playing, me admiring him as a player and playing against him and competing against him."

ANALYSIS: Durant has worked with Nash in the past when the former All-Star point guard was a player development consultant for the Golden State Warriors. That brought the two even closer than when they shared experiences on the floor as adversaries. Now, these two (and Kyrie Irving) will strive for greatness in Brooklyn.
