  • It began with this Kevin Durant, his first game as a Brooklyn net in his first game as a teammate of that man, Kyrie Irving.

  • And there's his former teammate, Steph Curry, as they take on the Warriors.

  • And here we go.

  • Welcome back, K D.

  • Drilling the three, his first points as a Brooklyn net, not just over six minutes remaining in the first Kyrie Irving looks very comfortable.

  • Kyrie 26 for him.

  • Steve Nash.

  • His first win is the coach Nets when it going away.

  • Katie, How'd it feel?

  • I know there's a lot of emotions and a lot of you know, I got so many calls and texts about, you know, playing again for me.

  • I was just like, I gotta focus on the first possession, you know, and then try to get through that and then move on each possession, so I try not to make too much too big of a deal out this whole thing, you know, I realize I've been playing this game since I was eight years old, so I just gotta revert back to what I know.

  • And yet it was a big deal.

  • The N B A is back, and that means Tim Legler is back with us.

  • Thanks for getting up early with us, your legs.

  • So from what we saw and it's one night.

  • But you see Durant and the preseason in this game last night and him playing with Kyrie in your mind, what do the Brooklyn Nets look like?

  • They can be?

  • Well, if Kevin Durant's on your team and he's healthy, then you're a contender.

  • And that's what it looks like to me.

  • And I saw enough of them in the preseason have a pretty good idea what I was gonna see last night.

  • Uh, he's a guy that's moving just like Kevin Durant used to move.

  • And there's no answer for Kevin Durant Defensively.

  • You don't have the personnel for him.

  • No teams got this scheme that can really slow him down and stop him.

  • So if you have the best natural score in the N B A.

  • On your roster, you're a contender, particularly when you pair him with Kyrie Irving, which makes them the best scoring duo in the entire N ba.

  • It looks to me like Kyrie now is in his happy place, which is alongside a more dominant player.

  • Hey was at his best in Cleveland alongside LeBron James because he could just go play and you leave the leadership things, the accountability, the answers to the other star.

  • That's when Kyrie is at his best.

  • And we saw it last night.

  • Those two guys look like they really enjoy playing together, the questions they're gonna be.

  • Will they be good enough defensively as time goes on?

  • And will everybody be able to accept their role because there are some guys taking a step back this year with this group?

  • Let's see how that plays out, but there's no doubt they're a contender for a title.

  • All right, so that's on the Eastern Conference site.

  • As far as the West and the Lakers.

  • How do you think they approach the start of this season with a short turnaround?

  • And obviously, LeBron again, he's just a week away from his 36th birthday.

  • The first month of the season for Frank Vogel is going to be basically training camp.

  • It's very difficult to ask any team to come back with that short of an off season off the championship, not just from a time standpoint.

  • It's also mentally, you know, you're basking in that a little bit.

  • You're enjoying yourself a little bit.

  • So he's not expecting that team to be mentally or physically ready, and you could see it in Game one.

  • They're a little bit sloppy to start.

  • They did make a run, so I give them credit.

  • They fought back, but at the end of the day right now, there's a lot of new pieces that Frank Vogel has to figure out how to use.

  • What combinations do you wanna put out there at the start of the game?

  • How do you want to finish the game?

  • Uh, there's a lot of guys that want playing time on this team, so obviously it's about a D and LeBron.

  • But those other pieces have to jell, and right now Frank Vogel is going to be using this as an extended training camp.

  • Don't expect the Lakers to be anything much better than 500 probably for the first few weeks of the season.
