I think they're a 4th tier team. A team capable of sneaking in the playoffs, but not expected to make it.

Kenny Atkinson can coach and surprisingly the team was fun to watch. We were #1 in possessions per game and #11th in points which is incredible considering that we only had 1.5 real scorers on the team in Brook Lopez and Sean Kilpatrick. His offense really produces a lot of shots, we just don't have anyone to make them.

Jeremy Lin was hurt pretty much for the entire season and we were like a .400 ball club with him while we went on a stretch of 1-25 when he didn't play at one point. He along with the East imploding could be the keys to us being a potential playoff sneak-in, but losing Brook will be tough as we don't know if we'll still have the same ability to stretch the floor and someone to give the ball to get 2 points when we need it.

It's far from a shoe-in but I wouldn't be surprised if we made some noise by season's end.

Jeremy Lin is underrated no doubt, but unfortunately the Nets don't have the depth to win enough games.

Like wang4three said, the Nets are one injury away from their season being useless again.

At least their culture has been decent.

Who is to say the Nets even got better?

Lopez is a fairly solid player (even though he is a laughably bad rebounder) and they replaced him with Russell.

While I haven't changed my mind and would bet any amount of money that they won't make it, I do appreciate OP's faith in his team... As blind as his fandom may be

If Lin is out like last season, obviously no shot.


But if he can stay healthy the whole season, this team is EASILY a playoff team.. I would even say a potential 3-4 seed.



Anyone who thinks otherwise, didn't see the Nets play the last month of the season. Absolutely outstanding team basketball. Spurs like.

I hope they do. Then Ainge would've passed up on George/Butler for a mid-teens pick.
