What a turn of events. We recorded most of the “Fullcourt on Flatbush” podcast with Robin Lundberg and Kerry Kittles focusing on the Kyrie Irving saga. It quickly took a turn later in the afternoon when the Nets landed James Harden in a blockbuster four-team trade. The guys opened the show breaking down the deal and what it means for the Nets, before getting into the Irving situation with Brian Scalabrine and Brian Lewis.
Fullcourt on Flatbush Opening Segment with Kerry & Robin:
- Nets land James Harden in a four-team trade with the Rockets, Cavaliers and Pacers. Did the Nets give up too much?
- Are there concerns about Harden’s weight and what happened in Houston? Can he mesh with Kevin Durant and Kyrie Irving?
- Some fans will be disappointed because of all they gave up. Nets will have no problems scoring. They have some room to add three mid-level players. They will look into the buyout market.
- Who in the East can beat these Nets if Kyrie Irving comes back?
Brian Scalabrine Interview:
Former Nets forward (2001-2005), SiriusXM NBA Radio Host, NBC Sports Boston Celtics analyst
- Kyrie has everything he wanted — teammate in KD, playing at home, team he loved and now he doesn’t want to play.
- Could see him tapping out if things weren’t going well, but he was playing incredible basketball. Steve Nash clearly is frustrated. Not sure he loves to play basketball.
- You can’t just bail on your team.
- Favorite memories playing with Kerry and the Nets.
Brian Lewis Segment:
NY Post Nets beat writer
- Nash has not completely backed Kyrie, avoided question a bit. The Kyrie saga and how players are responding. Doesn’t see pushback from players yet.
- Durant has been a leader by example for this team.
- Nash learning on the fly how to be a head coach. Some obvious mistakes have been made.
