believes his relationship with new bench boss Steve Nash will give the a more distributed sense of leadership between the roster and coaching staff.
"Steve is great, and I have a relationship with him that's going to build over time, bro," Irving said recently on "" podcast. "We worked out one time in 2014, but it's grown as just a respectful relationship from afar. I saw him at the Hall of Fame two years ago, gave him a big hug, and now he's the head coach.
Sabres acquire Eric Staal in sending Johansson to Wild
BUFFALO, N.Y. — Kevyn Adams didn’t have to do too much homework on centre Eric Staal in completing his first trade as Buffalo Sabres general manager. A former NHL player, Adams had plenty of firsthand insight on the 17-year veteran going back to their days as teammates with the 2006 Stanley Cup champion Carolina Hurricanes. “Eric Staal has had a world-class career,” Adams said Wednesday, shortly after acquiring Staal in a trade that sent forward Marcus Johannson to the Minnesota Wild. “There’s very few players in the league that just from what they’ve done on and off the ice command the respect and have the presence that an Eric Staal does,” he added.
"And I think it's also going to change the way we see coaches. I don't really see us having a head coach. KD could be a head coach, I could be a head coach."

When Irving was asked by cohost Eddie Gonzalez who was better suited to take the last shot in a one-point game between him and Durant, Irving praised KD while simultaneously appearing to take a veiled shot at several of his former teammates.

He finished third in the league with a .
"Depends on who's hot. I don't see it as anything other than that," Irving said. "(A) 1-3 pick-and-roll, or it's an ISO for either one of us, is something great for our team. One thing I've always been comfortable with is I felt like I was the best option on every team I played for down the stretch.
"This is the first time in my career where I could look down and be like, 'That motherf----- can make that shot, too, and he can probably do it a lot easier.'"
Irving played withfrom 2014-17 with the Cleveland Cavaliers. The two won an NBA championship together in 2016.
