Twitter erupts after Nets part ways with Steve Nash, turn to Ime Udoka originally appeared on NBC Sports Philadelphia
Head coach Steve Nash and the team parted ways on Tuesday with both sides releasing statements amid a 2-5 to start the season. There were questions about Nash’s job security heading into the new campaign after Kevin Durant reportedly presented an ultimatum to owner Joe Tsai.
Instead of choosing between Nash and Durant, Tsai ultimately kept both heading into the season. After just a few weeks, poor play on the court and controversy off the court, Nash and the Nets decided to head in separate directions.
As can be expected on Twitter after an NBA bombshell like this, some people took the opportunity to dunk on Nash:

Steve Nash is generationally rich and in his 40s and can now go on vacations for the rest of his life instead of dealing with whatever horrible bullshit Kyrie is on on any given day, seems like a huge win for him personally.

Will firing Nash actually lead to any improvement or stability for the Nets?
People certainly have their doubts:
Yeah, I'm not sure firing Steve Nash fixes anything for the Nets.
