Re: We were always dumb to believe the Nets would be good.
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.
