The Brooklyn Nets are entering a season hoping to have a totally different result than last year when they got swept in the first round of the NBA Playoffs.
They also had a very noisy offseason, but their core is returning: Kyrie Irving, Kevin Durant and Ben Simmons are all still on the roster.
Durant is going into his 16th season in the NBA, and on Tuesday, he sent out a great tweet, which is going viral on Twitter.
Durant: "16th training camp today, im old as shit in nba years. Wishing a fun and healthy season for the whole nba today, thanks to all the supporters out there, it’s much appreciated! Let’s get it"
The 33-year-old is coming off a season where he was named an All-Star for the 12th time, and he averaged 29.9 points, 7.4 rebounds and 6.4 assists per contest in 55 regular season games.
The assists per game were a career-high, and he also scored 55 points against the Atlanta Hawks, which was a career-high.
The former Texas star remained efficient, shooting over 51% from the field and 38% from the three-point range.
"I'm committed to moving forward with this team," Durant said on Monday at media day.
The Nets will play their first game of the 2022-23 regular season on Oct. 19 when they host the New Orleans Pelicans at Barclays Center in New York.
