Evan Fournier of the New York Knicks recently shared his perspective on the 2020-21 Brooklyn Nets and their playoff journey that season. Fournier believes that had it not been for the injuries they faced, the Nets had a strong chance of contending for and potentially winning the NBA championship. The 2020-21 Nets boasted a star-studded trio featuring Kevin Durant, James Harden, and Kyrie Irving, making them one of the most formidable teams in the 2020-21 NBA season.

The 2020-21 NBA season was undeniably captivating for the Nets, thanks to the star trio on their roster. With this powerhouse trio, they garnered significant attention from NBA fans and experts, who held high hopes for their championship prospects. The star trio, known for their formidable offensive capabilities, positioned the Nets as one of the top contenders in the playoffs and the race for the championship.

Fournier believes that injuries were the main obstacle to the Nets winning the championship in the 2020-21 season. The Nets were leading 2-1 in their series against the Milwaukee Bucks after winning the first two games of the conference finals. Unfortunately, Kyrie Irving’s ankle injury during that series significantly impacted their chances, ultimately resulting in their playoff exit.

It did work until Motherf***** got injured in the playoffs, they was going to win 100%, they were killing Milwaukee.

The NBA regular season has started with a full swing and the New York Knicks Evan Fournier believes that he can prove to be a great addition to the Knicks roster and add value to the team in the ongoing NBA season. The Knicks player didn’t play much in the 2022-23 season and it was to be expected that things would continue the same for the ongoing season as well. But his assertion explains that he is a great value addition to the roster and that he can make a change that the team is in need of.

Fournier said:

To be honest—I might be dreaming—but to me, I can help the team. I'm a good player. I can f--king play. I can bring stuff that this team doesn't have, too. I have hope to play.

Fournier added:

My goal is to put (Thibodeau) in a position where he has to think about playing me. I'm going to treat every practice and every opportunity I have like it is the last and we'll take it from here. That's honestly how I attack it.

Fournier had respectable statistics coming off the bench in the 2021-22 NBA season, averaging 14.1 points, 2.6 rebounds, and 2.1 assists. However, his performance took a nosedive in the 2022-23 season, with very few appearances on the court.
