I wouldn't say Stretching it to make it to the ECF I can see them making that as long as everyone comes to play during the playoffs.

Unless we make a remarkable trade and get even better, but I dunno if that can happen, unless we can a crazy good sg and a good PF :)

Thumbs up

as far as i can see the nets will be in the in the playoffs and would be in the top 3 seeds(maybe 2nd).
play0ff picture:
1. miami vs. 8. orlando
2. nets vs. 7. washington
3. bulls vs. 6. bucks
4. detroit vs. 5. cavs

i can see that the nets can beat the wizards on the first round and will past bulls on the 2nd but a hell series. ECF between nets and either heat/pistons.
and from there i dont know what will happen.... depending on how the heat will play if shaq can still and dwade are not yet tired. Pistons on how nazr fill up the shoes ben left in detroit and the other starters.

I can see them making the ECF possibly. I definetly see them making the semis. A long shot would be the NBA Championship.

The thing I don't understand is that no matter how bad Miami looks against other teams, they always seem to be sharp when they play the nets. I think that the nets can definitely beat any team in the east, but they tend to be inconsistent.

On a side note - people have been saying VC will have a career year because it's his contract year. Is it just me or does he look a little disinterested this year?

its only been two games and he is averaging 26PPG with 5 asists a couple of rebounds. what more do you expect from him? he is shooting way above his career mark so far too.

but i dont think he's actively taken many threes in two games. besides, most of them were those deep 3s from way downtown which he does for show.

what does disinterest have to do with scoring averages. did you even read the question? It's has nothing to do with what I want from him, it's what he wants for the rest of his career. He's 30 and based on the way he's looked while he plays and also by the comments he's made when asked about his contract, can you really say that he'll most likely stay with the nets if they have another 2nd round defeat in the playoffs?

2nd round of the play-offs.
Nets have a good team but their bench (despite the add of Marcus Williams and Nachbar) his still a little short of resources.

barring getting another strong interior presence, the Nets can go far on the strength of two things:


1) the bench averagin 20-25PPG at the very least. a stretch, but with hte way Nachbar and Williams may play, as well as the usual 6-7PPG from Cliff, this goal is attainable. Now if Wright can get going, and HOuse can knock down 2 threes agame...

2) the starting unit plays at a high level all year long

If the top seeding works out the way I planned:

1. Miami
2. New Jersey
3. Cleveland
4. Detroit

Then the Nets should make it to the ECF where they once again face off with Miami. It gets better every year first the 1st round, then the 2nd round last year, this year it will be the ECF.
