The Brooklyn Nets are approaching year one of this project as championship or bust. They’ve looked nothing like a championship team after seven teams, holding a disappointing (2-5) record.
Last night’s 107-86 defeat at the hands of the Kings was the last straw for Jason Terry.
“It’s a long season. You’d like to say, ‘Stay even-keeled.’ But for us right now, this is desperation. Everyone that steps on the floor on Friday should feel desperation and come out and play with a sense of urgency. If you don’t you’ll be looking at another loss. It’s what it is. These teams that we’re playing are desperate, they’re playing with a much more sense like this is their championship. We’re not meeting that intensity level.
“Talking’s over with. There’s too much talking. We’ve done enough talking and now it’s time for some action.”
The Brooklyn Nets face the hot Suns in Phoenix tomorrow night.
