With Kevin Durant out for the entire 2019-2020 NBA season last year and Kyrie Irving battling through injuries for the better half of the year, it was easy for NBA teams around the league to let the Brooklyn Nets fly under the radar. But the 2020-2021 NBA season is right around the corner and the Nets are coming into the year as a clear-cut title contender. There is no better way to remind you of just how good the Nets can be, then Irving juking the shit out of a cameraman at Nets practice Thursday.
We have seen it time and time again where a cameraman bites hard for a play-action pass during a football game and seconds later we are watching a running back run down the field without the football in his hands. You cant, blame the cameraman, if the middle linebackers are biting for the play fake, why can’t the cameraman?

But this is a tough look for this Nets cameraman as it shows even these guys are in pre-season form, not just the players. In a matter of 15 seconds, Irving sends this guy into a panic trying to locate where the ball is.
The return of Durant and a healthy Irving could wreak havoc for NBA defenses around the league. Brooklyn has young talent in guys like Spencer Dinwiddie and Caris LeVert that Brooklyn expects to complement well with these seasoned superstars.
Whether the Nets can land Rockets superstar James Harden or not is still up in the air but regardless of that outcome, the Nets are an absolute problem. Just ask their cameraman trying to keep up with these guys in practice.
