Seems they don't like Russell in Brooklyn already

"D'Angelo Russell's first appearance at the Barclays Center as a member of the Brooklyn Nets did not go as planned, with fans booing him when he was introduced at Sunday's BIG3 opening event"
https://www.google.c...717993.amp.html

 

I had read comments on Reddit suggesting that it wasn't Nets fans @ the arena. It was just basketball enthusiasts since it was the Big3 event.

 

 

 

D'Angelo Russell on Magic Johnson's parting comments: "I'm just excited to be here...it's the past, so it's irrelevant, honestly."

More professional response than Magic.

I think Magic should have just let Rob handle it.  Great talent but we're all about cap space for 2018, that's our vision, wish him the best in Brooklyn, etc.  

 

The part about needing a leader and players not wanting to play with him was unnecessary.  It put even more pressure on Lonzo (if that's possible) and he set himself up to look really stupid if Dlo balls out in Brooklyn.  Should have let Rob handle it and kept it classy.

I agree. The pressure on Lonzo is huge now, and there was no need to say those things about D'lo. Not a fan of Magic's circus, Pelinka is a lot better with the mic.

Let's not forget the remark about players wanting to come play here now. Baseless cheap shot at the former FO.

If dlo plays well and lonzo struggles due to no three point shooters on the wing yes it will make magic look stupid. if Brooklyn finishes with a better record than us it could get ugly.

But Dlo handled himself well. Seems to have taken that cheap shot/criticism to heart.

"Bryant had come to rage against the idea that Howard's clownish disposition could overtake the locker room, the Lakers' culture, and had warned Howard that he would never, ever let it happen."

Immature answers. Only a millennial would say something as brazen as that.
