Jalen Rose talked about the Knicks, Nets and Kevin Durant with reporters at a Puma eventin Brooklyn on Saturday. The ESPN analyst said he loves what the Nets are doing. He also thinks Kevin Durant's free agency would have unfolded differently if Durant never tore his Achilles.Here are Rose's thoughts on those subjects, what bothers him about James Harden's preseason and who he sees competing with the Lakers in the Western Conference:
Here's what Rose thought about the Knicks' offseason and the team they've put together: "The goal is always to sign the top-tier player. If you're Duke, if you're Arizona, if you're Kentucky, you want to sign the McDonald's All-American. But if you can't do so, then you've got to recruit a team - like Gonzaga, like Michigan was doing before - where you develop the players," Rose, a Puma ambassador/consultant, said.
