He has spoken fondly of that season in Switzerland, where he lined up with Rick Nash and Niklas Hagman to dominate the league.

Mike D ’ Antoni will serve as an assistant to new Brooklyn Nets head coach Steve Nash , according to ESPN’ s Adrian Wojnarowski. With Nash as his superstar point guard, D ’ Antoni popularized the seven-seconds-or-less offense that made the Suns a title contender and served as a precursor to the
