Steve Nash Calls Nets “A Disaster”; Team Holds Players-Only Meeting

The Brooklyn Nets continue to flounder at the bottom of the league's standings. Only the winless Los Angeles Lakers have a worse record than the Nets' 1-5 after the Indiana Pacers closed out on a run Saturday night to take a 125-116 win. 

“It was a disaster," said Nash. "How else do you say it? I didn’t see the will. Didn’t see the desire or the connectivity necessary to get stops and get rebounds.” 

"We dug ourselves a deep hole and we have to think really hard about how committed we are to doing this," Nash continued.  

As for the players, already dealing with more controversy over Kyrie Irving's latest off-court indiscretion, they held a players-only meeting after their latest embarrassing loss. 

"It was just an overall sh*tty night," Nets star Kevin Durant said. "Excuse my language, it was a bad night. ... We're pissed. We enjoy basketball. We like to win, though, so of course when we lose the games it's going to be a somber mood in the locker room.

Durant also didn't find any problem within the team with Irving's promotion of an antisemitic film. "Absolutely not. Only impacted you guys (media) and everybody outside the locker room." 

The Nets get another shot at the Pacers Monday night.
