Default NETS NBA Finals?

Is it possible for the NJ NETS to make it to the NBA Finals?

Of course its not easy for any team who lost one of their key players (Nenad Kristic) in the beginning of the season, and another key player (Richard Jefferson) who is trying to get his groove back from surgery.

And the Toronto Raptors, though too young and inexperienced, aren't going to give up their No.3 slot that easy to a team who were not even sure of their playoff chances and one point in the season.

But "What IF" the NJ NETS were to beat the Raptors, and then defeat the winner of the CAVALIERS/WIZARDS series, and then eventually face the PISTONS, HEAT or the BULLS in the EASTERN CONFERENCE Finals,( Alright...... or the ORLANDO MAGIC) and beat one of these teams in a best of seven to face the winner from WEST...

Is this possible? And how strange would this be? This was a season that went down the haywire for them, and they have nothing to lose, and ANYTHING could happen in the NBA Playoffs.

The NBA.... It's Faaaaaantastic!

Only if the other teams mentioned suffer some sort of bad luck and lose one of their key players to injury. Imagine if Washington upset the Cavs.

Nets will only make the Finals if these things all happen:

Stern decides Jason Kidd, Vince carter and Richard Jefferson are more marketable than Lebron James and decides to tell the refs to give Carter all of the calls.

DWhistle's shoulder pops out again or Chris Webber misuses the timeout.

Dirk, Duncan, Stoudemire all go down

and if that did happen nets would be the most questionable champions ever more than the asterix spurs of the lock-out era.

if somehow the Nets make it to the Finals, Nenad Krstic could conceivably comeoff the bench for about 15 minutes of work each game

If we play the suns:

Marion can be stoped. He doesnt have a soft touch...

Collins with help from moore can contain amare. Frank needs to plan out a play to counter the pick n roll...

Wright or Boki can handle Barbosa

and...the main thing to beat the suns is to not double team

Plus no one can stop carter on the suns(even bell)

And also he didn't think we'd go into the 2nd overtime. Man, Kidd's shot that went in and out off the bank was so close. Carter was jumping off the bench out of exasperation.

I still remember the shot Nash took to tie it. It didn't even look like a normal shot form more of a quick fling from his hands. I was shocked that it went in.
