Durant’s humble exit won’t regret disbanding the Big Three
The Brooklyn Nets have ended their ‘spring basketball’.
The team, which was considered the favorite to win before the season, faced a bitter end of the series sweep in the first round of the playoffs.
Brooklyn lost 112-116 to the Boston Celtics in Game 4 of the first round of the NBA PO at Barclays Center in New York on the 26th (Korea Standard Time). A series score of 0-4 ended the year poorly.
It was considered the top favorite to win this season. Point guard Kyrie Irving and ‘hairy’ James Harden, led by Durant, built the Big Three.
Six-man lineup, including Patty Mills, Blake Griffin, and Lamarckers Aldridge, were also spectacular.
However, the atmosphere was chaotic inside and outside the team throughout the season. Irving failed to fulfill his role as a veteran, causing various controversies such as rejection of vaccines and fasting according to Islamic doctrine.
Ben Simmons, who traded with Harden during the season, also failed to play a game due to back pain. When he missed the day of the “Elimination Game,” he was criticized for his insincerity by former legends such as Reggie Miller and Shaquille O’Neill.
Durant nevertheless defended the team.
According to Brooklyn reporter Alex Schiffer, Durant said in a post-match interview, “I don’t regret breaking up the Big Three. “It’s just what happened,” he said. “I support coach Steve Nash. I’ve been through a lot for two years,” he stressed.
Nash, who made his name as the best point guard of the time when he was active, recorded 90 wins and 62 losses and a winning rate of 59.2 percent after taking office in Brooklyn 안전공원추천
Although it follows the winning rate, it has been criticized for its controversy over overwork surrounding certain players, high reliance on one-two punches due to lack of tactics, and lack of leadership to set the team’s mood during consecutive losses. The prevailing view is that it still needs time to be reborn as a leader to be a candidate for the championship.
