McAdoo could still score, averaging 12 points in 20 minutes in 224 games with the Lakers. “When you saw me with the Lakers, people act like that was at the end of my career — that wasn’t the end of my career,” McAdoo said. “… I shouldn’t have been coming off the bench. “I sat around with people and they say Kevin Durant went to a team in Golden State that already had stars. You think they would have brought Kevin Durant off the bench to keep the team in Klay Thompson’s and Stephen Curry’s hands? This is what happened. I look back and say there’s no way I should have come off the bench in L.A., but that’s the way it worked. But I didn’t raise hell about it. I’d been in the league 10 years, I wanted to win a championship.”
The Tsais are confident they can improve the team’s attendance — “give it time,” said Joe Tsai in an interview with NetsDaily last month — and visibility. Liberty players have had front row seats for Nets games at Barclays and at the Nets Practice-in-the-Park and Nets players, including Kevin Durant, have showed up at Liberty games.
Now, having won four straight since, the Nets have improved. The Suns (15-3) provide a golden opportunity to gauge if those improvements have stuck. “We’re gauging each and every day. We gauge who you are every day,” Kevin Durant said. “We understand that these teams are coming in, and teams are playing well. But it’s November. Every team wants to be rounding [into] shape. … I’m not saying we want to give away any games. But win or lose, I don’t really think this is going to tell us that much about where we’re headed as a team.
