“Internally, we’re not looking at the season like we’re taking it off,” said center Brook Lopez, Brooklyn’s longest-tenured player and a 2013 All-Star. “We’re looking to surprise people. We’ve all been working together for a long time now, since way before training camp. We’re talking months. We have confidence in one another. We know a lot of our guys, they have an opportunity to come here and show something special, to show the league what they can do in a team setting.”
Officially, Lopez has played for Nets coaches Lawrence Frank, Avery Johnson, Lionel Hollins and Kidd, as well as interim coaches Tom Barrise, Kiki Vandeweghe, P.J. Carlesimo and Tony Brown. Asked recently to go through his mental Rolodex of coaches, Lopez struggled. “L-Frank,” he began, attempting to name them sequentially. “T.B., Kiki, Avery, J-Kidd… No?”
In a Facebook Video conversation at Nets practice Wednesday, Brook Lopez was asked by Chris Carrino if he he had found a “natural fit” working together. Lopez, the Brook in Brook-Lin, didn’t take a second to respond. “No question, no question. Jeremy is such a smart player, such a high Basketball IQ, that it’s easy to communicate with him. He picks up stuff very quickly. He’s figured out my game already. I mean he’s seen my game from playing against me. But just being on the court, playing together “We’ve grown immensely already. And he’s just so great coming off the pick-and-roll and attacking, getting in the paint, finding opportunity in that way. We’re absolutely building a great relationship. We’ve known each other previously but on the court for this short period we have been together, we’ve already grown comfortable together.”
