Lionel Hollins to Nets Fans: "Our team will do what it takes to make you proud"

Nelson Chenault-US PRESSWIRE

New Head Coach Lionel Hollins has released a statement to fans about his upcoming duties on the Nets' sidelines:

Hello Brooklyn, 

I am proud to be the new head coach of the Brooklyn Nets. It was great to visit Barclays Center at yesterday’s press conference and to begin envisioning the upcoming season. I appreciate the opportunity presented to me by Principal Owner Mikhail Prokhorov and General Manager Billy King, who have quickly developed a winning culture in Brooklyn. My goal is to build on the success of the past two playoff appearances and to lead our team to an NBA Championship. 

I believe that my 20-plus years of coaching experience have prepared me well to lead the Brooklyn Nets. Our team is going to be aggressive defensively, mentally tough, and a cohesive unit. Soon I will be meeting with Deron Williams, Joe Johnson, Brook Lopez, Kevin Garnett, and the younger players to discuss my expectations of them and to hear what their expectations are for our team. While we are individuals, our players will have to come together as one and make sacrifices for us to be successful. 

I am looking forward to getting to know the borough and our fan base. I can assure you that our team will do what it takes to make you proud. Thank you for your support. 

Best Regards, 

Lionel Hollins 
Head Coach, Brooklyn Nets

It's all pretty basic stuff, although he forgot to include "there's no place like Brooklyn" or "there's no place I rather be."
