Nets’ implosion was worth bet on Kyrie Irving-Kevin Durant


Three years ago, the Nets pulled off a deal that one high-ranking front office member called “transformative.”

A trainwreck. One of the most disappointing teams in recent NBA history.

Nets general manager Sean Marks and owner Joe Tsai took a huge gamble in putting this team together, and lost.
