I didn't have to wait long. It's not even really truth minus fact, it's just false. Jason Kidd and Mark Jackson both went straight to NBA head coach jobs. Nash actually has more space between his playing career and coaching career than they did, and in that time he was a coach (special assistant with Dubs) and a GM (was Canadian National Team GM for seven years).
The hire makes perfect sense. Like you said, KD and Kyrie didn't come to play for Kenny Atkinson. Nash is KD's guy and he is exactly the type of mentor Kyrie can use as he tries to transition/take the next step.
