Brooklyn Nets should burn it down amid the Kyrie saga

The underachieving, uninspiring, increasingly nauseating Nets of Brooklyn are reportedly set to name Ime Udoka as their new head coach, which seems to make sense from a pure basketball standpoint. (And yes, of course, Udoka brings his own baggage with his suspension by the Celtics for potential misconduct.)

The Nets have championship hopes, and Udoka just took a team to the Finals in June. The Nets need a coach who commands the respect of All-Stars, and Udoka did so in Boston. The Nets need a coach who connects with Kevin Durant and Kyrie Irving, and Udoka knows both, from a previous stint in Brooklyn. The Nets need someone to instill a defensive grit; Udoka checks that box, too.
