After forming their own ‘super team’ and pointing the way to glory until injuries crossed their path, the great and main objective of the Brooklyn Nets heading into the 2021-22 season remains the same: to conquer the ring.
This Monday, James Harden, one of the exponents of the talented ‘Big Three’ New Yorker, he was questioned about his own contractual situation with the Nets. A scenario that maintains the line followed by Kevin Durant, who renewed for four years and 198 million dollars at the beginning of last August.
However, the guard said that he is taking his continuity with the team calmly, being his top priority to lead the Nets to the ring. Thus, Harden added that money will not be a differential factor when making a decision, according to the journalist from The Athletic Alex Schiffer.
In fact, La Barba is the only component of this trident that does not know what it is to conquer an NBA ring. Kevin Durant held two consecutive titles during his tenure with the Golden State Warriors, which followed Kyrie Irving’s with the Cavaliers.
As a result, Harden’s approach differs slightly from that of his teammates. The Nets will have a lot of pressure on their shoulders on their way to the NBA Finals after taking a knee to the Milwaukee Bucks last season. And the future of the escort in Brooklyn may depend on this development.
