Starting Five: So far, so good
By Ohm Youngmisuk
Kevin Garnett and the Nets will tackle Day 3 of training camp on Thursday.
DURHAM, N.C. –- Two days into camp, the Nets are bonding and having fun.
They’ve had a team dinner and even spent some time in the Duke University pool for some training.
On the court, they’ve started the process of molding their identity and installing their system.
“Fun, but tough,” Kevin Garnett said of how camp has gone so far. “Obviously we’re new, and we’re trying to get our feet under us, along with the system that Jason [Kidd] has given us. Lawrence [Frank] has a bunch of stuff that is in our defensive schemes. And it’s worked, man. We’re coming in here and he’s kicking our ass. It’s training camp. We’re at Duke for a reason.”
"Now, this is the window -- this season," King said Wednesday. "We're going to see what we can do with this season, and then we'll see what next season brings."
2. The KG plan: Two days into camp we are still talking about what Kidd will do with Garnett’s minutes this season to keep him fresh. Kidd says he believes his experience managing his minutes the past few seasons will help him come up with a good plan.
