Brooklyn Nets' Kevin Durant celebrates birthday at Dave & Buster's

Brooklyn Nets' Kevin Durant celebrates birthday at Dave & Buster's

But even if the former MVP returns at full strength, the Nets need much more.

Brooklyn general manager Sean Marks said recently Durant's rehab is going well, but added the team is taking the long-term approach with its newly acquired superstar.

The top candidate is obvious. When asked how seriously he considered signing with the Knicks, Clippers or Warriors before deciding on the Nets, Durant said, "I thought about it for a couple seconds to see how my life would look in all of those places for a minute". In 40 regular-season games, he averaged 13.7 points, 3.9 rebounds, 3.8 assists and 1.1 steals. "There was a facial expression I carried around with me throughout the year and I didn't allow anyone to get close to me".

So when all this happened, and the NBA and the 'pressures, ' I'll put it in quotations, from this basketball game came into free agency and I was dealing with my future, I wanted to dispel all those things, but I don't think I did it in the right way of being honest about how I felt. I worked with Adam in a critical part of my career (with the Thunder) when I was transitioning to a different player. There's some noise in there. "There's only a few guys like that". "My relationship with them personally were great, but in terms of me being a leader in that environment and bringing everyone together, I failed".

Irving said he has since reached out to ex-teammates, as well as Celtics co-owner Wyc Grousbeck and president of basketball operations Danny Ainge, to tell them that he cares about them "as human beings". I didn't want to come out and say that this is bothering me, or I'm in a depression at this point of dealing with the death of my grandfather. "He turns into a real Joe Harris-type when Caris is driving", Atkinson said. I think it works well. He said he responded to the loss in ways that are "uncharacteristic" of his usual behavior and noted that he didn't take proper measures to cope with the death. "It's gonna be finding the balance with those guys". It is believed that he will sit out during the season and the NBA Playoffs.

Along with Durant, Irving was one of two big-time additions the Nets made during free agency.

"It was big for myself and my family, but going forward, my mindset's still the same, trying to push to be the best player I can be every day", LeVert said.

"I was doing a lot of YouTube research on Kenny Atkinson and watching interviews seeing how he talked after the game".
