Brooklyn Nets head coach Lionel Hollins, in a video interview with the team's official website, said that he's an adaptable person and he expects to have fun in his new home. He also compared it to his old home, Memphis: I've been to New York many times. Having been in the league as long as I have and even when I lived in Philly and when I lived, now, in Memphis, we would come up and go to a play or go to a musical and then go to dinner and hang out for two or three days. So I'm pretty comfortable with New York, I just never thought I'd be living here. That's the big shocker. It's still surreal to believe that I'm in New York, and especially after being 12 years in Memphis. Memphis is like, compared to New York, it's like back in the stone age when you didn't have electricity and stuff. And that's not a knock on Memphis as much as it's just a contrast in how developed and how, just, unbelievably electric New York is versus Memphis. People are laid back, they move slow, they talk slow and they drag their words out. Here, everybody talks so fast and usually you have to listen real hard and ask ‘em to say what they said again.
