it would actually be pretty bizarre if there weren't any.
Yeah but we were in a worse position last year. Two head coaches, Gerald and Reggie as our starters, Deron battling through injury, Brook, Gerald and Joe missing games and our bench sucked yet we went 34-6 against sub .500 teams.
With the talent we have in our starting unit, under no circumstances should we EVER lose by 21 points to the Orlando Magic, a team that we beat by an average of 20 points in our four meetings against them last season. I hope this Nets team is not a rendition of the 2012-2013 Lakers. I pray it's not. Our defense and offensive struggles all point to that direction.
