Three former Nets teammates were all back in town together with Denver, and none was surprised at how their supposed superteam broke up and the Kevin Durant-Kyrie Irving era ended in Brooklyn.

Brown said that there was plenty going on with the Nets behind the scenes, and that once Durant had asked out in June and Irving followed with his own melodrama, it went from a matter of if to a question only of when.
