this guy says the nets lose to miami in the ECF. there's nothing wrong with saying that but i doubt that it happens.
either a couple things go wrong and the nets never make it to the ECF, or a number of players (RJ, krstic, wright and the rookies) who are on the rise push the nets over the top, and i mean way way over the top, of miami. i'm talking about sweep or near-sweep.
the problem with all this prediction crap is that with the nets there are too many unknown factors. i think we can safely predict that we will be the class of the division. predicting anything beyond that is foolish IMO. better to just enjoy what we have and enjoy wherever the ride takes us this year.
there's no hurry because barring disaster we're going to be a good team for years. put the pressure on the top dogs, not the nets. it's almost always easier and better to be the underdog who overachieves...
