Devin Reflects on LeBron, Mikhail, Avery and Seasons Past and Future

New, comments

Devin Harris was Nets captain last season and is likely to be again this season.

So he has a unique perspective on a number of things Nets which he shared with the Madison Capital Times Wednesday while taking a group of basketball campers to the University of Wisconsin.

--On LeBron James: "Wherever Chris Bosh decided to go, I think LeBron was taking it seriously, whether it was Cleveland, Chicago or wherever."

--On Mikhail Prokhorov: who he has yet to meet: "That's the type of owner you want to play for. Teams that do well have the owners that do the necessary things to go over the top."

--On Avery Johnson: "I've matured a lot since then and I think he is coming in with a different kind of mind-set. I think it will all work out for the best...I don't think he's ever had a post threat like a Brook Lopez. I think it will be a good change of pace."

--On the coming season: "I took less time off after the season and got to work right away. Years like last year really make you focus on working extremely hard."
