Article:Jeremy Lin, Nets look to move on without Brook Lopez~
"The leadership role Lin shared with Lopez last season falls more squarely on his shoulders. But the addition of the 21-year-old Russell, the No. 2 overall pick from the 2015 draft, creates a situation that might be complicated.
On the one hand, Marks said he expects Lin to be a good influence on Russell, who showed some immaturity at times with the Lakers. On the other hand, Russell could be viewed as the Nets’ point guard of the future though he lost that job with the Lakers and shifted to shooting guard.
Lin said his leadership style won’t change, although he might have added responsibility. He understands the questions about Russell but also believes in his talent and upside.
“I think at the end of the day, he’s a really good kid,” Lin said of Russell. “He has a good heart, and he’s a tremendous basketball player. Once he meets our team and gets in our locker room, I’m pretty sure it will be a seamless transition. I’m sure I’ll learn a lot from him as well, and hopefully he learns from me. What we want to do is create that family atmosphere where we’re kind of pushing each other, keeping each other accountable, helping each other.”
