Brooklyn Nets vets deny they're satisfied with losing

Brad Penner-USA TODAY Sports

Jason Kidd said at practice Tuesday that he hadn't yet spoken to his players about what he told the media post-game Monday: that his club is "getting really close to just accepting losing," adding, "We kind of get comfortable with losing and we have to make a stand with that because when things get tough, do we give in? Most of the time right now we do."

But the writers at practice Tuesday got strong comments from some of the veterans who denied they are comfortable with losing and stated that the team has no identity and don't even understand what kind of team they are, one third of the way through the season.

The Nets won't have any kind of a Christmas Eve curfew despite the noon start on Wednesday.

There was some good news, regarding Andrei Kirilenko's status for the Bulls game.

Meanwhile, Paul Pierce escaped a suspension for his flagrant 2 foul on George Hill, but he will pay a fine.
