ESPN is running a feature called NBA’s 65 in 65 where they have 65 NBA chats. These chats will feature analysts, writers, and players.
This Saturday the NBA chat featured Devin Harris. It is a little disappointed that I just found out this today (nice job advertising these ESPN – I kid…), I would have asked him some awesome questions. You can find the whole chat here, but I picked out some excerpts that I found pretty interesting.
On the Nets’ losing atmosphere:
Yes, it bothers people. But it’s part of our job. You just try to turn a losing situation into a winning situation.
On whether or not the Nets should go after LeBron in free agency:
Definitely. For all sorts of reasons. He makes the team around you better. He’s definitely an unselfish superstar and he’ll attract other players. So he’s an all-around great pickup.
On the rooks:
They have such upside. Brook is definitely coming on. People got to see what he can do this season. He can really be a superstar. He’s a tremendous talent.
On the biggest shot of his life:
The buzzer-beater this year, probably. I also had a free throw in college to win a conference championship. So it’s a toss-up between those two.
On if he thinks he should be the MIP:
Now the stuff I took out and put here wasn’t even half of the chat, so you should go check out the rest. It is an interesting read.
