Devin Harris offended LeBron singled Nets out in contraction talk

11 Comments

Let’s be clear, LeBron James was not talking about contraction. He just mentioned “shrinking the (league)” which is so totally different than contraction. It’s just the media twisting his words.

Whatever James was talking about, he mentioned the New Jersey Nets and wondered how Devin Harris would look on another roster.

Harris told the Star-Ledger he was kind of offended by being singled out by James.

“For him to talk about us specifically was a little offensive,’’ Harris said after practice, and before the Nets left for Oklahoma City for tonight’s game against the Thunder. “I mean, from a business standpoint … what’s best, we’re still trying to figure this out. But (James is) in the mind-set of, ‘Let’s just team everybody up with stars and kind of duke it out,’ which, it kind of was like that in previous ages, but who’s to say what’s best for the league.’’

Just for the record, it really wasn’t like that in previous ages.
