In an interview with Sports Xchange, Lawrence Frank says the Nets "are excited, just itching to get started" and one reason is the performance of Jason Kidd in the Americas Cup. "You heard the comments of what his teammates thought about him," said Frank. "It's things we know. Those are plays we see." While the Nets have offensive balance, Frank hasn't changed his philosophy. "This past year we were inconsistent on the defensive end, so we want to put together a consistent defensive performance. "
