Veteran Vince Carter was interviewed by the media a few days ago and talked about the much-watched Brooklyn Nets. Carter said that the third giant of the Nets is already in the formation, so why bother to look around? This person is the small center of the Double One Team.
几天前，老将文斯·卡特（Vince Carter）接受了媒体采访，谈到了备受关注的布鲁克林篮网队。卡特说，篮网的第三巨头已经在组建中，那么为什么还要四处看看呢？此人是Double One小组的中锋。
The Nets are definitely a very anticipated team. Even if Kevin Durant and Erwin were reimbursed by injuries this season, they still made the playoffs. With Durant and Irving coming back healthy next season, coupled with legendary point guard Nash coaching the team, the future of this team is exciting.
Many experts predict that the Nets will pursue the third giant in the offseason. At present, the Nets have many high-quality assets, including young and capable players such as Le Weir, Dinwiddie and Allen. The Nets management can use these young players as a bargaining chip in exchange for the third giant.
But in Carter's view, why bother with the Nets struggling to find the third giant? This person is already in the battle. He said: "If you want to find another scorer, you have to find the right person. If all three core players need to have the ball in hand, the situation may become very difficult. Some of your Big Three may be Not happy because they don’t have the ball. They all want the ball, so they really can’t coexist.”
The third giant in Carter's mind is like this: "So, I think you have to find a third giant that can coexist and complement Durant and Irving. I think that Jordan is such a person. He is not the kind of need. A lot of people with the ball. But what can he do? He can put a lot of pressure on the opponent on the defensive end. If you find three scorers, then basketball is really not enough points, so you need to think a lot."
Durant, Irving and Jordan have a good relationship in private. In the summer of 2019, these three good friends met to join the Nets. Durant missed the entire season with a ruptured Achilles tendon. Irving also missed due to injury after leading the team in 20 games.
Jordan has played in the Nets this season and even failed to start, averaging 8.3 points and 10 rebounds per game. Of course, the strength of Jordan is also not to be underestimated. He was the core figure of the Clippers Air Receiving Brigade, with outstanding ability to protect the basket. In the 2015-16 season, Jordan was selected as the first team of the best team and the first team of the best defensive team. He was a double-team center.
