In an interview with a Memphis TV station Saturday, Chris Douglas Roberts said Rod Thorn, Kiki Vandeweghe and Lawrence Frank told him at season’s end, “you were the biggest surprise on the whole team.” CDR added, “I was struggling because I didn’t know much about the NBA…then I got comfortable.”
As if my claims for the past 6 months weren't enough, the top guys in the Nets organization say it. And that's saying a lot when Brook Lopez is on the team.
I'd contend that Douglas-Roberts wasn't only the Nets' biggest surprise, but one of the biggest in the NBA. Courtney Lee may have him beat. JR Smith and Al Jefferson have cases as well.
