Tyshawn Taylor says he and the Nets lost confidence last season

Debby Wong-USA TODAY Sports

Tyshawn Taylor put in a few minutes at Dyckman Park Tuesday night, although he shouldn't have. NBA rules prohibit players from taking part in organized summer leagues until July 1. Kemba Walker and Lance Stephenson have already been fined for doing so, and Taylor's likely to lose some money as well. He says he didn't know about the rule " That's my story, I'm sticking to it," Taylor told ESPNDeportes.

More importantly, Taylor spoke about the Nets season and confidence, how both he and the team suffered from a loss of it brought on by changes in rotations, etc., during the transition from Avery Johnson to P.J. Carlesimo.

"I think it would have helped if we would have had one coach throughout the whole season," Taylor told Adry Torres. "I think rotations changed when we lost our first coach and got a second one. People lost confidence. Things like that, little things that I think are definitely controllable. So we just got to fix it."

Specifically, he said "It's hard not to lose confidence when you're sitting on the bench. You don't really know what you can do, but you don't really know because you're not playing, which is frustrating."

Now, of course, the Nets are talking about picking up another veteran point guard to replace C.J. Watson, who's opting out of his contract. And there's word that the Nets also like Shane Larkin, the hyper-athletic PG out of Miami. Still, Taylor likes the idea of playing for a Hall of Fame point guard.

"I like it. I think it's going to help me. I get a chance to learn from another great point guard besides D-Will," Taylor said.
