ESPN’s Marc Spears predicts Nets media day will be full of drama

·1 min read

With an offseason where two of the best players in the world, Kevin Durant and Kyrie Irving were both interested in leaving the Brooklyn Nets franchise, it’s safe to say that the summer was drama-filled enough for the team.

Despite having a roster stacked with talented NBA veterans, off-court shenanigans and drama affect the team negatively.

ESPN NBA analyst Marc Spears will be bringing popcorn to media day because he is personally excited to see the drama unfold. On a segment, Spears ranted about how much fun it will be in Brooklyn:

“Media day is gonna be amazing in Brooklyn. You have the hug from KD, Nash, and Sean Marks. Did that hug really mean anything? Are they really good now? Obviously, this is the aftermath of the drama with Kyrie Irving last season. And then there’s Ben Simmons’ return. And I am told that he is expected to be ready for the beginning of the season. Ben Simmons is their third story line and he’s probably bigger than most storylines in the league. So media day with the Nets is gonna be amazing, it’s gonna be crazy, but winning cures all ills. If Brooklyn gets off to a great start I think they could go forward and try to win a championship. But if it’s all bad there, oh boy, that New York press is gonna have a field day.”
