Default Nets make team History!!!

For the first time have finished the season with a winning road record. That's a big step for a team looking to get to the next level. Unless you're the Bucks who go .500 anywhere they play. I was critical of the team coming into the season because of some awful contracts we picked up, but I must say so far Brooklyn has had a great season.

For a first year in Brooklyn, I'd say we played up to our expectations. There was a lot of up and downs (and I mean a lot) but in the end I'm just happy the Nets are a winning team again. Its been rough the last 5 or so seasons. Even if we get bounced by the Heat in the second round I'd say it was a successful inaugural season for the Brooklyn Nets.

The problem with Brooklyn is they are a good team, but not a legitimate title contending team. They don't have much room to make moves with the contracts they have to take them to the next level they need to be to contend.

Yeah, we were a pretty bad road team under Byron Scott, but I like that team. Once Lawrence Frank took over we were no longer a good home team anymore, it hurts more to lose games at home than in road.

They had a losing road record in both '02 and '03(19-22 and 16-25 respectively). They also went 23-24 in '03 after starting 26-9.

Really..? How far back into the Nets' history are we talking? I can't imagine the Nets led by Dr. J struggled to have a winning record on the road... Right?

I don't have the time to look up the stats, so I'll just leave that question in the air.
