Nets GM Billy King on expectations for this season: "This is the window"

via @DukeRadio

Brooklyn Nets GM Billy King met with the media today as the Nets began Day 2 of training camp at Duke University, and he left the media with a nice sound-bite. "This is the window," he said on championship expectations for the Nets this season.

With Brooklyn making two major moves this off-season -- trading for Kevin Garnett, Paul Pierce and Jason Terry and signing Andrei Kirilenko; three if you count the Jason Kidd hiring -- King is essentially saying, officially, that this team is built to win now.

Here are a few quotable moments from King's availability:
