NBA Opening Night By Amara Prophet
If you were fortunate enough to catch opening night for the Brooklyn Nets, you may have noticed just how talented Cam Thomas really is. With the team parting ways with Kevin Durant, James Harden, and Kyrie Irving over the past two (2) seasons, Cam Thomas was a shoe-in for a bigger role. I remember some of Cam’s performances as LSU where he looked like a sure fire bucket getter. He’s getting a little more comfortable in the NBA and teams are becoming familiar with some of his go-to moves, but the ball is still hitting the bottom of the net. On opening night, he did not disappoint provided the home crowd with a 36 point performance in a 25-minute time frame. Ben Simmons put on a Rondo-esque performance and we’re still waiting for him to unlock that 3-point shot we’ve been hearing rumors about since he was a 76er. There’s a lot left to be desired from guys like Spencer Dinwiddie who turned his career around here in Brooklyn, but it was just opening night and a lot of players shake the rust off around December.
