Here’s a life lesson for all our young readers out there: you get out what you put in. If the Nets put half as much effort into the game as they did into trying to impress this reporter, they could have a winning record. It’s okay to have fun, but you have to act professional. Especially if you’re the nine and fourteen perennial laughingstock of the NBA. At least pretend to care. Give the illusion of hard work. The video was funny but it’s not a good look.
Can you imagine seeing a group of Celtics huddled around a reporter giggling like a bunch of middle schoolers? Me either. That’s why they have the best record in the league and the Nets are the Nets. I’m fully aware that I could be reading into this but something about it rubbed me the wrong way. There’s a time and a place to shoot your shot and it’s not at practice. Even if you’re giving an interview, keep it about the game or the progress you’re making. No one wants to watch a cringeworthy attempt at Spanish. Only Gronk can do that.
It’s like they’ve never given an interview in their lives. Get your shit together, Brooklyn. Even if it is just practice.
