With a celebrity duo of Kevin Durant and Kyrie Irving, together with a powerful supporting forged, they have been anticipated to be among the many high groups within the Jap Convention.
Now, with Nash on the helm, it seems the stakes have gotten even greater. In a city corridor earlier this week, he spoke concerning the upcoming season and his expectations. To Nash, the objective of the upcoming season is to win a championship.
“We’re taking part in for a championship. I don’t need to say that something lower than a championship is just not successful since you by no means know what occurs in life, you by no means understand how the ball bounces. Fortune is an enormous a part of profitable an NBA championship. However we’re taking part in for a championship and we’re going to construct accordingly. We’re going to border every little thing we do within the lens of, ‘Is that this a championship attribute?’ or ‘Is that this price championship high quality?’”
Like Nash mentioned, it really might come right down to the well being of the staff. Each Irving and Durant have a historical past of accidents. Durant hasn’t performed because the 2018 NBA Finals with the Warriors and Irving solely performed in 20 video games final season. If they’ll keep away from accidents, there shouldn’t be a query that they are going to be a playoff staff and maybe within the high half of the East.
We’ve already seen what this Nets staff seems like with out these two superstars. With out them for almost all of final season, Brooklyn went 35-37 and have been the No. 7 seed within the Jap Convention as a stable staff. With fairly a couple of selections to make within the upcoming shortened offseason, the Nets will look to place the ultimate touches on the championship hopeful roster.
