NFT: Brooklyn Nets

3-0 and looking very sharp in the pre-season. Yeah, I know it's way too early but everything about this team is upbeat and positive. Atkinson's 3-and-D system is proving very effective and the players are buying into it. Russell, Crabbe, and Carroll are excellent additions. Brooklyn has 11-12 guys who can make solid contributions and Atkinson will somehow need to find minutes for all of them. If they can just stay healthy, I think 35-40 wins is very possible.
Hopefully they carry this over

to the regular season! I too think thatís possible, but letís see them play 10 games before getting too excited. Marks has built a very nice, gritty roster. Solid depth is a good problem for Atkinson as there will be nights where those other players will have to pick up the slack for the starters. Iím hoping I have a team to root for this year!
Itís looking good

Not just the results but the way they play and practice... how they share the ball and move without it- and with shooters and ball handlers this year...they can win quite a few games
Levert also looked excellent last night- as did crabbe- will be a fight for minutes all year

And Allen looks the part
lol

Donít care about the record- care about how they play- 12 assists in the first quarter last night- better pnr defense- more ball handlers- better shooters- good mid tier vet leadership- young players improving.
yea it's not at all about record

last year they were more competitive than anyone expected, especially when Lin was healthy, and that despite being so talent depleted they were starting Randy Foye. This year the talent level is far beyond that and they're all young. They don't have an all star but they have 3-4 guys who have the talent if they can breakout.

I think I said in my other post this was the most exciting season since early 2000s.

Am I missing one? Maybe post-Garnett/Pierce trade before we realized they were shells?
the 2nd half of the first season with KG/Pierce was fun

that team actually could have given Miami a good series if Deron Williams wasn't such a turd. I've never seen someone choke the way he did that year.

...has done a terrific job rebuilding this team considering he's had one hand tied behind his back with the lack of draft picks. I think the future looks very bright for this organization.
