Stephen A. Smith Says Steve Nash Net's Hiring is White Privilege; NBA Twitter Debates


The Nets hiring of Steve Nash for their vacant coaching position came out of left field.

The two-time MVP has no formal coaching experience, although was a consultant to the Warriors, where he apparently made an impression on now-Nets star Kevin Durant.

Hot taker Stephen A. Smith chalked up Nash's hiring to white privilege. 


“This is one of the toughest positions I’ve ever had to take. Ladies and gentlemen, there’s no way around this. This is white privilege. This does not happen for a Black man," Smith, and then acknowledged that the Nets two (Black) superstars signed off on the deal.

Twitter then debated if it was white privilege -- or if it was point guard privilege.

What do you think?
