First came a workout at Real Madrid, where Nets assistant coach Pablo Prigioni was a former player. Then Prigioni set them up with seats to watch Game 1 of the Spanish ACB League quarterfinals against Manresa later Thursday night. “It was a really fun, man. The atmosphere what you see at soccer games it’s a similar environment in basketball. The facility, we got to see the practice facility. That was cool,” Russell said. “It was the same day actually. Our days are kind of carrying over. Busy, busy.”
Brooklyn Nets guard and reigning NBA 3-point champion Joe Harris is apparently quite the fan of European basketball. And on Thursday (30/6) he got the opportunity to attend a playoffs game in Europe: Game 1 of the Spanish ACB League quarterfinals between defending champion Real Madrid and Manresa. “I love following European basketball, Spanish basketball. It’s fun to see it in person for once,” Harris said during a timeout.
There are instances where Allen’s reticence will clash with his professional curiosity. He wants to know how to shoot like Joe Harris—his teammate and newly crowned Three-Point Contest champion—but never asks him about mechanics or form. Same goes with D’Angelo Russell’s vision. Allen wants to understand how his most talented teammate makes quick decisions with the ball, but never raises it in conversation. “When I roll and I get the ball, I can’t always score,” Allen says. “So I have to make the decision to pass it. I’m interested to see how [Russell] does that…I never really talk to him about it. I kinda don’t want to steal his style, but I’m gonna try to take pieces from him.” (Russell’s response when asked about this: “He’s definitely a shy dude, just in general. But I think [playmaking] will come naturally as the game slows down for him.”)
