Week 7 is here with many headlines breaking the internet. Head Coach Steve Nash has reportedly left the Nets after a chaotic tenure. In the meantime, the Nets are progressing on the hiring of suspended Celtics coach Ime Udoka. Lebron James went 0-4 with the Lakers for the first time since rookie season. Golden State Head Coach Steve Kerr says Warriors lacking ‘sense of purpose’ amid slow start.  

The decision to part ways was mutual between the Nets and Nash. “We want to thank Steve for everything he brought to our franchise over the past two-plus seasons,” general manager Sean Marks said in a statement Tuesday. “Since becoming head coach, Steve was faced with a number of unprecedented challenges, and we are sincerely grateful for his leadership, patience and humility throughout his tenure. Personally, this was an immensely difficult decision; however, after much deliberation and evaluation of how the season has begun, we agreed that a change is necessary at this time.” In a separate statement, Nash thanked Marks and team ownership for an “amazing experience with many challenges that I’m incredibly grateful for everything.” Suspended Boston Celtics coach Ime Udoka has emerged as the likely next Nets head coach, and his hiring could be finalized as soon as the next 24 to 48 hours. 

With the Los Angeles Lakers‘ 0-4 start being the first time, his team has lost four straight games to begin a season since he was a rookie nearly 20 years ago, LeBron James vowed to tweak his personal approach moving forward. “I wasn’t aggressive enough in a lot of my turnovers,” James said after committing eight miscues in L.A.’s 110-99 loss to the Denver Nuggets on Wednesday. “I was coming off a lot of screens, looking to pass, get guys involved, and I wasn’t aggressive enough. “James, who finished with 19 points on 8-for-21 shooting, nine assists and seven rebounds to go with those turnovers, said the adjustment will start in the Lakers’ next game, at the Minnesota Timberwolves on the 28th of October. 

The Golden State Warriors suffered their second straight loss and third on the road Sunday night, falling to the Detroit Pistons 128-114 to drop to 3-4 on the season. Just one week into the season, the Warriors have been plagued by the same issues through all of their games: transition defense, lack of ball movement and too much fouling.
