The Brooklyn Nets sent the NBA world into a frenzy when they signed Hall of Fame point guard Steve Nash to be the team’s next head coach.

Nash, 46, worked as a player development coach for the Golden State Warriors and has ties to Nets star forward Kevin Durant.

NBA Twitter exploded following the news that the two-time MVP would be taking over in Brooklyn.

The Nets reportedly had their eyes on Nash for a while and made the decision to hire him in May.

He joins a long list of point guards that have gotten head coaching jobs without much coaching experience.

While some have praised the hire, there have been some mixed reviews as well.

The Nets were eliminated in the first round of the NBA playoffs this season.

However, the team will have Durant and Kyrie Irving back for next season and will immediately be considered one of the best teams in the NBA.
