THE BROOKLYN NETS ARE IN BIG TROUBLE RIGHT NOW!
Okay, okay, it's only the NBA preseason. So this isn't something to get too worked up about. But during a practice session yesterday, two Nets players got into a fight and had to be pulled apart before practice could continue. Those two players? Andray Blatche and Mirza Teletovic, who got into a brief scuffle during practice. When asked about the fight, Jason Kidd didn't get too worked up about it.
"It's great," he said. "That's competition. That's what it's all about. This team is put together to compete at a high level, and you saw that. There's nothing wrong with competition. Tempers might flare, but it's all out of respect, because we're all working hard, and as a coaching staff and as players, that's what you need."
Is it really "great" as Kidd says, though? We're sure this stuff happens all the time during NBA practices. But with only about two weeks to go before the start of the 2013-14 NBA season, the Nets should really be starting to think about battling other teams and not one another.
