It was one of Curry’s least efficient games of the season. Klay sat with back stiffness. Brandon Rush started for him. The Nets still held onto a lead with under 10 seconds left. But then Iguodala delivered his signature moment of the streak, nailing a contested, game-tying 3 with five seconds left. Thompson: Over Joe Johnson. I remember that. Iguodala: What’d MJ say: It don’t mean a thing if you ain’t got that ring. Michael Jordan said it and he the greatest. I don’t remember three years ago. Why you want to do that story? I don’t know, man. I don’t remember that shit. I don’t remember any of the games. Only Milwaukee. Not even the Nets game? Iguodala: Oh, the one I made a shot? Draymond passed it to me. It wasn’t in the corner, it was on the wing. Kevin Durant, a couple lockers away, is eavesdropping on the conversation. At the time of the streak, he was on the rival Thunder. He interrupts. Durant: Damn, I was praying y’all lost that game. I was following every game. Y’all should’ve lost that. I was hating.
And after Brooks’ 12.6 points per game in his first year, landing him on the All-Rookie Second Team, everything changed for the Providence scoring savant. “I thought I was going to build on that, honestly,” Brooks recalled to NetsDaily seated at his locker in the visitor’s den. “I was on a bad team at the time and I had a lot more room for error my rookie season, so when we moved to Brooklyn, they went out and got Joe Johnson in my position, so it totally changed my role. I went from playing 29 minutes a game to like 15 (laughs) … “It wasn’t easy at that time. I think it helped me. I think I grew from that. It was unrealistic my first year, everything came really easy to me, that’s not how things come in this league. You’ve gotta work for things. I’m more prepared now.”
While he admittedly hasn’t kept close tabs on the Nets since – and why would he? – he has taken note of their generaldirection. A growing number in this league have, even though the team is struggling to find success, much like Brooks’ first team. “I think they’re headed in the right direction. They’ve got some good players, some good young players and I wish them the best for sure, because they took the chance on me,” he offered.
