Brooklyn’s networks may also be open to the idea of playing a little ball next season, as soon as superstar Kevin Durant is back in the game.
According to Brian Lewis of the New York Post, the league’s only MVP, who normally plays in the top two positions, is likely to spend some time in the middle when he returns.
Prior to his dismissal as Seth’s head coach, Kenny Atkinson suggested putting a smaller unit on the field and anchoring Durant in midfield.
It’s no problem. If he goes up against a big, strong guy, [maybe not]; but then you have to go out and keep him, Atkinson told The Post in his last game at the helm in Brooklyn. Understand the teams. This advantage is easy to understand.
Meanwhile, Houston Rockets head coach Mike D’Antoni managed to win with a small ball in Texas and got along with PJ Tucker and Robert Covington, who were repainted.
KD is of course much higher than two and actually has a playing height in the middle.
Eagle-eyed NBA fans have long hinted that Durant is much higher than the originally announced 6 to 9 meters and is actually almost two meters high. This year it was officially classified at 6’10.
Known as the best striker, Durant, who lights up the defense from almost anywhere in the field, is also an underestimated defender who maximizes his ridiculous wingspan by adjusting his shots and fending off passes.
In the meantime, Nets head coach Jacques Vaughan will have a dilemma next year regarding his central location. Brooklyn struggled with a pair of his traditional Jareth Allen and DeAndre Jordan slots.
The presence of the Centre Durant will really offer a lot of interesting opportunities for the team. It should also be noted that Durant will be waiting a long time for the Achilles injury, and that it might be unwise to continue tapping bodies with the best bihmans in the league.
