Look at that picture. That picture was taken before the crap hit the fan. They had so much promise, but now the Nets may have wagged the white flag. Brook Lopez is out for the season, and the Nets have a big hole to climb to make the playoffs. It is the East, so it may not be that hard. With the Nets stumbling around before the loss of Lopez. Things don't seem like they'll get any better.
For the first time this season, as the losses continue to mount, Brooklyn Nets rookie coach Jason Kidd was critical of his team and admitted they are getting complacent.
Playing their first game after finding out that center Brook Lopez would be lost for the season due to a fractured fifth metatarsal of his right foot, the Nets were blown out by the Indiana Pacers, 103-86, Monday night at Barclays Center and booed by the home crowd.
"Well I think it is getting very close to just accepting losing," Kidd said after his team lost its third straight to drop to 9-18 overall. "We are kind of getting comfortable with losing. And we got to make a stand with that because when things get tough, do we just give in and most of the time right now we do."
I said a couple of days ago that I look forward to see what Pierce and Kevin can do in the face of adversity. They won't another ring this year, but those two guys have a lot of pride. I really believe KG may think about retiring after this season, especially with Pierce being a free agent next summer.
