Steve Nash reacts to Nets being labelled as villains
The Brooklyn Nets have been labelled “villains” for including two big-time time gamers as free brokers in Blake Griffin and LaMarcus Aldridge for the second half of the season. The crew already has three superstars on the roster, specifically Kevin Durant, James Harden and Kyrie Irving. The addition of Griffin and Aldridge is taken into account by some as an try to construct a “super team.”
However, the Nets head coach Steve Nash doesn’t assume a lot of such feedback likening his crew to villains. He remembered a quote from Griffin on how he was a nasty participant for 2 years till he joined Brooklyn.
“I don’t even know what that means, villains, in the context of it,” Nash stated, per Brian Lewis of New York Post. “[A staffer] just told me that Blake’s comment this morning was, ‘Hold on, everyone told me I suck for the last two years, now everyone’s saying I’m the villain because I’m here.’ So a lot of it is just narratives and people love to talk hoops and barbershop and whatever it may be.”
The Nets are at the moment within the second place within the Eastern Conference behind the Philadelphia 76ers. They have 32 wins and 15 losses whereas the Sixers are 32-14.
