The veteran NBA player and TNT commentator took to the air days ago to speak out about comments made by Stephen A. Smith, who had asserted on his own show that NBA Legend Steve Nash was hired for a coaching job over Mark Jackson and Tyron Lue because of "white privilege".
According to Stephen A. Smith, Nash's record as a player doesn't count; he only got the job only because he was white. Smith said, talking about a league where predominantly black athletes are paid millions: "Ladies and gentlemen, there's no way around this. This is white privilege. This does not happen for a black man."
He continued: ""You just want to scream. You want to scream to high heavens. How the hell does this always happen for somebody else other than us?"
Nash is a 2 time NBA Champion, 2 time NBA MVP, 5 time NBA assist leader and a 8 time NBA All-Star.
