As if the Nets weren’t already stacked, they went out and added LaMarcus Aldridge. Kyrie Irving. James Harden. Kevin Durant. Blake Griffin. Aldridge. It’s hard to see anybody beating the Nets when they are all out on the floor. They might be their own biggest enemy. Can they all get on the floor together and coexist? Is it the Nets vs. everybody?
To talk about another big addition and get into a couple of feuds from this week, we bring you a new episode of the “Fullcourt on Flatbush” podcast with Robin Lundberg and Kerry Kittles, featuring an interview with Basketball Hall of Famer Rick Barry.
Fullcourt on Flatbush Podcast with Robin, Kerry & Jake:
- LaMARCUS ALDRIDGE: Nets add another key piece to complete their roster. What will Aldridge’s role be? Players in their 30s will take less money to try for a championship. Robin says it is fun for the Nets to now be a “heel” in the NBA. Sean Marks has made Brooklyn a desirable destination for players.
- KD vs. RAPAPORT: Dissecting the Kevin Durant-Michael Rapaport feud. Who is more in the wrong here? Rapaport loves to get this attention.
- KERRY vs. NBA RADIO: Kerry went on SiriusXM NBA Radio with Justin Termine and Eddie Johnson in what turned out to be a fiery debate over James Harden being the NBA MVP favorite. Kerry says he’s the favorite, while Johnson and Termine believe what he did in Houston should not make him MVP.
Rick Barry Interview:
Former NY Nets forward (1970-172), Basketball Hall of Famer
- CURRENT NETS/DURANT: Would be better if KD can stay healthy. Fortunate to go from Warriors to Nets. Thought he should have stayed with Warriors. Nets have talent to win a title. Usually need to be in top 10 in defense to win it all. Harden has transformed his game.
- ABA/NBA THEN VS. NOW: Totally different game than when he played in the 70s. Would have loved to play in the 80s. Hates the officiating in today’s game, too many travels and carries and fouls called.
- NY NETS/LOU CARNESECCA: Memories playing in NY in early 70s in the ABA for the Nets, getting to the Finals against the Pacers. Carnesecca was a great coach, listened to players, didn’t have an ego.
