We were always dumb to believe the Nets would be good.
 
Me included. Well, I didn't say they would be a 64 win team and be a true contender (they were my pre-season 4th seed), but I definitely saw them getting possibly to the ECF.

For a lot of people though, they were championship caliber...and looking back we should be ashamed as ball fans for jumping that gun when we knew the following:

- Their best player was Deron Williams
- Their coach had just retired as a player and was coaching a veteran team
- Garnett and Pierce were going to instill a tough/defensive culture...but we acted like they would also have a significant impact on the floor too
- Their bench was "deep", but it got to the point where we just called it deep because everyone else was calling it deep

So, injuries aside, let's be real, this team was never going to be amazing. Not this bad obviously, but not championship caliber.

The only flaws I saw on the team were the bench and the coach. I expected Deron Williams to play like a PG and stop chucking shots.

It's interesting, it was because of the Lakers last season, that I wasnt impressed when I heard about Brooklyn's offseason.I've become really critical of "2k teams" that just add stars, regardless of age or coaches. It'll get you wins in 2k, but in real life you need some sort of system and identity. I think the best thing that happend to Miami is they started to establish a defensive identity from the get go.

I thought their ceiling was a 2011 type of Celtics team. If they could stay healthy they could hover around winning 50 games and challenge either Indiana or Miami in the playoffs. I never thought they were serious championship contenders. Quite frankly they just don't have enough top tier talent to get to that point.

I still believe they will make the playoffs and make a push in the second half of the season (assuming they get healthy, which is certainly no guarantee). Hell, who am I kidding, I just hope they recover so the Raptors can safely tank for a top pick without worrying about actually competing in the dreadful Atlantic.
