A few Tennessee Titans players had their own reactions to some of the moves made in NBA Free Agency on Sunday.
Even before the 6 p.m. ET opening of NBA Free Agency on Sunday, news began to leak about where some players were going. Regardless, once the madness started to ensue, some Tennessee Titans players took to Twitter to share their thoughts.
Some huge moves were made in all the madness.
Former Golden State Warriors forward and two-time NBA Finals MVP Kevin Durant created a seismic shift and chose the Brooklyn Nets as his new destination. Along with him, guard Kyrie Irving also changed his address to Brooklyn.
Guard Kemba Walker will fill the shoes that Irving left empty in Boston with the Celtics, and even Tennessee’s own Memphis Grizzlies were active and traded with the Warriors for forward Andre Iguodala in a move that brings experienced veteran leadership to a young team.
There were plenty more moves made, of course, but if we went over them all it would take up this entire page. So, for now, let’s just look at a few of the Titans players who reacted to the NBA news.
We start off with wide receiver Taywan Taylor, who reacted to the late move of guard D’Angelo Russell going to the Warriors in a trade.
Cornerback Adoree’ Jackson, who is originally from Illinois, is a huge Derrick Rose fan. Rose was signed to a two-year deal by the Detroit Pistons.
Jackson also tweeted about how fun it would be to play the new NBA2K game that will be coming out later this year because of all the new faces on new teams.
Last but not least, defensive lineman DaQuan Jones is convinced he will only let his kids play baseball or basketball in the future. That’s probably because of how bloated and guaranteed the salaries are in each sport as compared to the NFL.
Can’t argue with that!
It was a wild night for sure on Sunday, but my sentiments are pretty much the same as these Titans players in every way. NBA Free Agency is pure and utter madness.
