Kevin Durant, Kyrie Irving get shots up at Nets facility


Anthony Davis is still disappointed that his Los Angeles reunion with DeMarcus Cousins was ruined by another injury. Russell Westbrook donned Houston Rockets' red for the first time.

"A lot of basketball and the joy I had from it was sucked away from me", Irving said.

Clearly, Day 1 of camp season wasn't hurting for star power.

"We all know K was not ready to play in that environment". "But it's all about the process of today". Irving said his new teammate's health wasn't valued enough, and that won't be the case now that they are together on the Brooklyn Nets.

In Houston, Westbrook and James Harden will form a backcourt that consists of two of the last three NBA MVPs.

Knicks assistant coach, Royal Ivey and Durant are best friends. "Like, 'Hey, just keep being a basketball player.' So, throughout that year, just became rocky and a lot of the battles that I thought I could battle through from the team environment, I just wasn't ready for".

"I'm very patient. I'm going to be over patient with Kevin because I don't want anything like that to happen ever again, especially on that type of stage where it happened and then he's having to answer questions about when he's coming back or not".

Former Dallas cop says she wishes neighbor had killed her instead
A jury is deliberating the case of a Dallas police officer who fatally shot her unarmed neighbor in his apartment previous year . Guyger has said she thought Jean's apartment was her own when she opened his door and shot him, mistaking him for a burglar.

"I think you have to go inside the mind of a competitor", Irving said. I put that up on the shelf already.

So when all this happened, and the NBA and the 'pressures, ' I'll put it in quotations, from this basketball game came into free agency and I was dealing with my future, I wanted to dispel all those things, but I don't think I did it in the right way of being honest about how I felt.

Irving played 67 games for the Celtics during the 2018-19 season. The Pacers don't know when Oladipo will be back on the floor this season.

"I responded in ways that are uncharacteristic", he said, adding that he felt he failed his team. So, I'm not going to look at me switching teams as a new challenge. I didn't take the necessary steps to get counseling or get therapy to deal with somebody that close to me dying. I worked with Adam in a critical part of my career (with the Thunder) when I was transitioning to a different player.

He didn't divulge what that will mean. "And I had to acknowledge that fact to the organization first". "I don't like telling people stuff". It was insane. They loved me in Boston, I loved the Boston fans. "We want to go now", Jordan said. "We'll use it as a great chance to bond as a group".

The 10-time All-Star, and two-time NBA Finals MVP, had a number of teams to choose from this offseason but he seemed set on Brooklyn.

The first preseason game is Monday, with the Rockets playing host to the Shanghai Sharks.
