Kevin Garnett frustrated with Nets but staying positive

Future Hall of Famer and former Celtic great Kevin Garnett is frustrated and embarrassed by The Nets woeful 3-10 start to the season. However, in true KG fashion, he's staying positive and promises the team will keep working to turn it around via

“I think everybody here is embarrassed,” said power forward Kevin Garnett, who went 2-for-9 from the field in 23 minutes and is shooting 34.9 percent from the field this season. “You definitely don’t want [to be booed] at home. Like I’ve been saying, we’re going to continue to work to try to change this as best we can.”

Furthermore, according to Ohm Youngmisuk, Garnett went on to say:
“Tough times right now,” Garnett said. “But you know what? I don’t believe in feeling sorry for yourself. I believe in working your ass off, trying to work your way out of the hole in which you made and nothing less than that.

I am just as surprised as KG considering that early in the year I projected this team to be players in the East come playoff time.

The biggest question mark seems to be surrounding head coach Jason Kidd. When I first heard about this hiring I thought it was either pure genius or going to turn out an unmitigated disaster. Unfortunately, for Brooklyn fans, it has turned out to be the latter early in the season.

All is not lost for this Nets squad however; as was pointed out by Kurt Helin at NBC Sports:
The Nets need a lot of help, but it starts with getting healthy — they need Deron Williams and Brook Lopez. Especially Lopez. Once they have everyone they can work on the defensive issues (Lopez really helps there, as is pointed out at Hoopscritic) and getting some movement in the offense.

The good news is with all the struggles they remain just two games out of the playoffs in an East and three games out of the lead in the weak Atlantic, this could be turned around quickly.
