    Steve Nash: Kevin Durant not at 100% yet

    Alex Schiffer: Steve Nash thinks Kevin Durant is “in the 90s” in terms of percent of how he’s feeling. Said it’s going to take 15-20 games for Durant to really get a gauge on his condition and has told him the same. – via Twitter Alex__Schiffer

    “This is tough for me to actually put a number on. It’s really hard. But he’s in the 90s, for sure. Whether it’s 90 or 99, I don’t know,” Nash said about Durant on a Zoom call with reporters Sunday. “But I keep trying to tell him that he’s got to give himself 15, 20 games before he starts judging himself. Sometimes, they say the amount of time you have off takes you that much time once you’re back to feel like yourself. “He’s done absolutely everything we could ask, but there’s no way to finalize what he is, who he is post-injury without playing NBA games. You can’t recreate it, you can’t simulate it, and you can’t replace it. So he’s going to go through this process, play some games, and before long — if we’re fortunate enough with his health and all the things he’s put into this — he’s going to be 100% Kevin Durant, no question.” – via Nick Friar @ Nets Wire

    Brian Lewis: Nash: “Kevin is capable of being an “A” defender. But he hasn’t played in 18 months. We don’t want to overburden him.” #Nets – via Twitter NYPost_Lewis

    Brian Lewis: Steve Nash about opening the season vs. the #Warriors, considering his & KD’s history: “We’re excited for that. For Kevin & I having ties there – Kevin extensive ties – we’re excited for those guys to come to town and measure ourselves.” #NBA – via Twitter NYPost_Lewis
