Kevin Durant claims Nets have ‘all their s**t in order,’ a ‘championship mindset’
Durant, who is likely going to miss the entire 2019-20 season recovering from his Achilles tear, says the Nets have “all their s**t in order” and carry a “championship mindset” with them:

The Nets made the playoffs last season and have a good core and infrastructure, led by general manager Sean Marks and head coach Kenny Atkinson.
Brooklyn signed Durant, Kyrie Irving and DeAndre Jordan to four-year deals this summer. Durant and Irving picked the Nets over the New York Knicks, who also had cap space to sign two max players.
This season, the Nets will still be really good with Irving, Jordan, Spencer Dinwiddie, Caris LeVert, Joe Harris and Jarrett Allen leading the way. When Durant comes back in 2020-21, that’s when Brooklyn will be legitimate title contenders.
A 10-time All-Star and two-time Finals MVP, Durant has career averages of 27.0 points, 7.1 rebounds and 4.1 assists in 849 games with the Oklahoma City Thunder and Golden State Warriors. The former MVP is one of the best scorers of all time, and Nets fans can’t wait to see Durant competing with Irving by his side at the Barclays Center.
