Troy Murphy - Jersey Sure

Troy Murphy was at the Honolulu International Airport Tuesday, headed back home to New Jersey and the Nets, when Dave D'Alessandro caught up with him. The Sparta native said all the right things about playing for the home team, like...

"I couldn’t understand when all these free agents were looking for places to go that so many of them overlooked the Nets," and...

"There’s something special about playing for the team that you grew up watching, so you have to look forward to that. And I’m looking forward to working with Avery Johnson," and...

"I think people are definitely underestimating us, but that’s a good thing."

Murphy knows it won't be easy for the Nets and himself--he's never played in the post-season, but he's happy to give it a try. “So I‘m definitely all right with this. And we have a shot at the playoffs, so can you imagine how special that would be for me to be a part of that?”
