VIDEO: Steve Nash’s hilarious reaction to Nets being dubbed as NBA’s new ‘villains’

Nets, Steve Nash

The Brooklyn Nets have formed a roster that is loaded with talent, with their latest signing of LaMarcus Aldridge sending fans in an uproar. While speaking about the outlook of the current roster, Steve Nash shared his reaction to his team being dubbed as the NBA’s new “villains.”

When Nash got the job in Brooklyn, he knew he’d have a talented duo in Kevin Durant and Kyrie Irving to build a foundation with. Also, players like Caris LeVert, Joe Harris, DeAndre Jordan, and Jarrett Allen rounded out the roster nicely.

However, the Nets were the team to acquire James Harden early in the season, sending LeVert to the Indiana Pacers and Allen to the Cleveland Cavaliers. While Brooklyn’s bench took a hit to land The Beard, the trio of Harden, Irving and Durant was one that the franchise couldn’t pass up.

Even with the Big 3 missing time due to injuries and other issues, the Nets find themselves holding a 31-15 record, which is the second-best record in the Eastern Conference. With Brooklyn poised to make noise in the playoffs, they’ve also lured Blake Griffin following his buyout with the Detroit Pistons.

It remains to be seen how much both Griffin and Aldridge have left in the tank at this point in their careers. Even without those two giving major contributions, the Nets are a scary team to play against. Steve Nash, who has experience being part of a super team when he was with the Golden State Warriors as an assistant, understands that there is a target on Brooklyn’s back moving forward.
