i agree with your point about injuries. but buying titles is false. the lakers have proven that many times. the nets are a stacked team, a big team, and a team that i think plays well together. if they stay healthy and continue to jell, watch out.

You don't think the Nets are trying to 'buy' a championship?

The Russian is throwing money around like its monopoly money. There starting 5 payroll is more then like half of the teams in the league. There salary cap penalty is something similar.

Its no secret that they are trying to buy as much as possible to make a one year (maybe two) run at a title.

as long as the minutes are limited like last night where no one plays more than 31 minutes and 9 players play at least 19 (AK47 will make it 10 when he loses his minutes restriction), the team will be fresh all year.

I agree. In theory it should work. But we all know how the nba works. haha

Game #3 tonight. I wonder how the Nets will be able to deal with the pretty athletic Magic. Oladipo and Harkless could cause some issues. However, Brook should man handle Vucevic. They need to build on the statement game on Friday.

That's more like it. :turkey:

Yea, Mirza has looked like garbage since preseason. I don't see how he will be able to have a role with this team, especially with Anderson showing that he's got range.

as did D-Will, KG, and Pierce.

Why did Brook get like 4 shot attempts during the second half and OT? Just amazes me

Wow the wizards. It is early and I'm positive the nets will jell better but there are some concerns about them as a team. They seem to have the pieces the question is whether they will come together. I guess the Russian can always try to buy more pieces haha

Shaun Livingston looks like a much better fit at PG for this team.

I just don't understand why D-Will doesn't attack the rim more often. Even when the defender's have their hands up, he can usually get the ball over them.

Welp the good news is neither Knicks nor nets are off to a hot start it's basically still 0-0, philly ain't gonna be on top of the division for long...NY teams will get it together, I just hope the Knicks do it sooner! Although with Tyson out it's not likely! I'm going to need the nets to struggle for another 4-6 weeks

Haha the goal for the Nets and the Knicks is to make the playoffs, and I still think both teams will turn it around. Once you get in, anything can happen.

Not even worried about DWill. Livingston is a STUD. Lopez and Joe were clutch tonight. Solid win against an underrated team.

Deron's ankle issues are right there with Steph Curry's. Nets are lucky they signed Livingston. One of the best backup PG's in the NBA.

It seems that nothing can go right for D-Will. One freak injury after another. I'm sure he'll be back. He needs to step up big time anyway.

No need to rush back though. Livingston and a combo of Terry/AA can handle it for a game or two.

Yea, Shaun was clutch in the final minutes of regulation. That one mid-range fade away was awesome.

I wish Reggie would get more minutes. Blatche has been struggling, put Reggie in when Brook is also on the court.
