Extra on this storyline

In keeping with Shams Charania of The Athletic, the assembly happened this previous Saturday, and Kevin Durant indicated that he may stick with Brooklyn if basic supervisor Sean Marks and trainer Steve Nash have been now not there. Understandably, friends of Marks and Nash weren’t satisfied. “I am getting that avid gamers have extra energy this present day, however I feel it’s a bit too a long way if he’s out right here looking to get Steve fired,” mentioned one trainer, who was once briefly reminded of Magic Johnson’s fingerprints on Paul Westhead’s firing again in November of 1981 and different energy performs, a few of which might neatly had been justified. -via / August 9, 2022

He and Kyrie (Irving) principally advised Sean they have been coming (as loose brokers in 2019), and Sean did just about the entirety they sought after after that. Signing DeAndre Jordan for 4 years? That’s one thing Kyrie and KD sought after. Getting James Harden? Then getting a man who will have to be a really perfect supplement to them (Ben Simmons) when Harden sought after out? Sean did all that.” -via / August 9, 2022
Alternatively, when requested if he would welcome Durant to his personal membership will have to he be possible at a good worth, the exec paused and laughed. “Smartly … ” he mentioned. “OK, you were given me there. However, see, that’s the a part of this that can at all times be laborious for some other people to seize. I’m speaking in regards to the fanatics who simply see the avid gamers as staff. Those guys don’t seem to be interchangeable portions. You’ll be able to’t simply plug in any person else to do what KD does.” -via / August 9, 2022
