The Brooklyn Nets now have a superteam consisting of all the following: James Harden, Kyrie Irving, Kevin Durant, Blake Griffin, and LaMarcus Aldridge. At least three of those players have seemingly been intentionally discontent or a lackluster version of themselves until they could find greener pastures located closer to the playoffs.
Jalen Rose and David Jacoby addressed the developments and along the way Rose opened up my eyes to the fact that individual players are now tanking in order to get what they want through a dramatic rebuild. Perhaps you're smarter than me and already realized this weeks ago, but dammit, I want to talk about it now.
Harden showed up to Houston carrying a lot more weight and though he still tore it up on the court, he made no effort to be there mentally or emotionally and created an awkward, untenable situation. Griffin fought through injuries but definitely played with a governor on. Aldridge is a bit different because, well, it's unclear exactly how much he has left in the tank.
