Nets’ Kenny Atkinson Discusses Pressure to Make Playoffs

Published

As the season winds down, the Brooklyn Nets have a realistic shot at landing a 5th seed heading into the NBA Eastern Conference Playoffs, so, the pressure is on.

The pressure is certainly something that Nets’ head coach Kenny Atkinson acknowledges, and doesn’t enjoy one bit.

“I don’t enjoy one second of this,” Atkinson said Tuesday after practice, according to Greg Joyce of The New York Post. “I really don’t.”

“I love the game, I love the organization, I love the players, but you just have this constant pit in your stomach. I told my wife [Monday] night, I said, ‘The anxiety only leaves after a win.’ That moment from the win [until] you have your dinner or whatever, and then this morning you wake up and you’re worried about Washington, and, ‘Man, we gotta get that one, what an important game.’ It’s just a little window where the anxiety disappears.”

The Nets are jockeying for the 5th seed spot, and sits behind Boston with the 6th seed.

The Brooklyn Nets are bringing in more than just Kevin Durant and Kyrie Irving in free agency.

According to ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski, the Nets have agreed to terms on a four-year, $40 million deal with center DeAndre Jordan.

Jordan, a close friend of Durant’s, isn’t the player he was when he was with the Los Angeles Clippers, but is still a solid piece to add to a team with the likes of Jarrett Allen and Chris LeVert, among others.

Jordan averaged 11.0 points and 13.1 rebounds per game for the Dallas Mavericks and New York Knicks last season.
