Beginning the season below (.500) isn’t an ideal start for any NBA franchise. However, the Brooklyn Nets very well sit in that category. Behind a team that made confident offseason moves to acquire players to keep them in the contender race. Following the Net’s latest loss against a struggling (7-6) Sacramento Kings in a blow win 153-121. I am ending a 29-year drought of total points in a game.
In a Bleacher Report interview with Chris Haynes following the detrimental loss. Kevin Durant speaks, divulging details of a trade request and the things the Nets franchise is facing as an organization.
He said, “I went to them like, Yo, I don’t like how we are preparing,” Referring to the preparation of the current coaching staff’s pre-game solutions.
Durant finished the game with 27 points, six assists, and four rebounds. Fifteen games in, Kyrie Irving, was suspended due to a controversial anti-semitic video he posted via Twitter.
The Brooklyn nets superstar Durant looks highly frustrated with how things are being orchestrated. “It wasn’t difficult to request a trade because it was about the ball,” Durant told Bleacher Report. “I don’t like shootarounds. I like practices. I need more”.
The 2-time MVP expressed his frustrations with head coach Steve Nash. With the lack of closeout drills. “We need to practice more.” With all the distractions and functioning in the ball club. Durant says he’s in a happy moral with the team and enjoys navigating the curveballs thrown at him.
