Why Kenny Atkinson is the Right Choice for The Brook-LIN Nets

After seeing his beloved Brooklyn Nets turn into the league’s cautionary tale under ex general manager Billy King, the ambitious Russian owner Mikhail Prokhorov finally realized one simple truth – there are no shortcuts to greatness. By appointing Sean Marks as the team’s general manager and relieving Lionel Hollins of head coaching duties, the Nets were ready to start fresh. Though it was speculated that the club would have trouble attracting a big name coach, the Nets went on and secured the services of one of the most talented and sought-after assistant coaches in the NBA, Kenny Atkinson.
