You said 40 should be their goal.. why would their goal be something others expect them to get? Shouldn't their goal be higher and to exceed expecations? It sounds like you thought 40 would be a good season exceeding expectations.. thus it is a goal in your eyes.

If the Nets win 40-42 games (about) I'm curious the fan reaction because the casual fan in Brooklyn is being painted a picture of a team that is much better than the Knicks, and plans to contend. That they are REALLY good. The truth is more to me they are trying to build a contender, but most importantly building a culture that will allow them to build consistent good teams. But the thing being sold is not that, it's YOU HAVEN'T HAD A GOOD TEAM ON THE OTHER SIDE OF THE RIVER - DON'T WORRY! THE NETS ARE HERE!
