The words of Kevin Durant perfectly capture how the Nets are feeling.

It's all puppies and rainbows in Brooklyn during NBA training camp and preseason games because of the low-stress atmosphere. While Kyrie Irving's handles continue to be mind-blowing, Kevin Durant remains Kevin Durant, and there is no debate over whether Royce O'Neal or Joe Harris should start, Ben Simmons is finding his spots and playing aggressively.


When questioned about those training camp sentiments, Durant responded with a statement that aptly captures this Nets season (via Brian Lewis of the New York Post).


What transpires when adversity strikes is the burning question that everyone has regarding the Nets. Does this roster have the mental toughness to compete despite its talent?


Ben Simmons in particular, who in the past appeared to falter under the strain of the playoffs, exemplifies this. Durant also discussed Simmons and gaining confidence, according to ESPN's Nick Friedell.

When asked what he could do to maintain Simmons' offensive confidence, Durant responded, "Just trust in him. When he's open, pass the ball to him and instruct him to play aggressively. I am not very active. I'm not here to watch over anyone's children. Ben is aware that he should always act aggressively when the opportunity arises. Who cares if you succeed or fail? Simply put, we enjoy your aggression. He can confirm what I already know, thus we constantly give one other support and energy.


Although it's still preseason, Simmons has been aggressive (and the Nets are 0-2). rainbows and puppies. We are awaiting the start of the real world.
