Reports: Nets, Kyrie Irving have mutual interest

Both Anthony Puccio, writing for SNY, and Brian Lewis report that the Nets have interest in Kyrie Irving, with or without Kevin Durant, and that the 6’3” Celtics guard has been tracking the Nets progress as well. The Nets in fact think a backcourt of Irving and D’Angelo Russell work in Brooklyn, the two write. Pooch notes… Sources tell SNY that Kyrie Irving and his camp are strongly considering Brooklyn if he decides to leave Boston. Irving’s camp has kept a close eye on the Nets as the season progressed and the team got better, with the playoffs only helping their case. SNY also learned recently that the Nets would not shy away from signing Irving even if they re-sign point guard D’Angelo Russell…

How The Brooklyn Brigade became a building block in establishing Nets culture

As players scuffled in Game 4 of the Nets-76ers match-up and refs and coaches tried to restore order, a chant arose from Section 114 at Barclays Center. “BROOOK-LYN, BROOO-LYN” Soon, the whole arena joined in as loud as it’s ever been. The BK Block, home of the Brooklyn Brigade, was marking its territory and what a territory it is. Section 114 in the Barclays Center has established its place as the heart of an increasingly rowdy Nets fanbase.

Rodions Kurucs, who was taken in the second round! Yes, you read that correctly, three of the Nets five starters were picks Marks acquired to make up for all that history … and ironically, this is also the first season when they control their own first rounder …
