I am completly sick and tired of being sold on a product that we all know, as fans will never win a title. I cannot stand the excuses. I cannot stand executives who honestly believe they can follow a preset formula and create a team to emulate Jordan's bulls, Shaq's Lakers, Kobe's Lakers, and Lebron's Heat. Unless you have a player that is top ten all time, you will not win like those teams. Unless you have a Lebron, or even a Kevin Durant, with the right pieces around him, your team is not going to win.
Teams that do not have a top three player win with team ball. One superstar is not enough to win, see Carmelo, and that superstar then looks like a second option on a good team, see Carmelo Again. The Brooklyn Nets have the talent, which in my opinion isnot used correctly, and the fact they are still trying to emulate HERO Style ball, with a superstar will not work.
One thing they do have set so far is structure, role players. IMHO they need a new coach, a real identity. They need to play much like the Pistons that won it all, the Pacers pre Brawl, and how college teams gravitate together to win the title. There are only so many Lebron's and Kobe's in this league.
If this Nets team stays the same, we will not win the title in one, two, or five years.
Fans and the Media will become irate upon reading this, but DWILL is the problem. He feels like the AROD of the NBA, all the talent, but has fallen off with the bright lights. Joe Johnson is the perfect 3rd piece to a championship team, not a number two, and therefor cannot hide DWILL lack of eliteness.
Move DWILL in the offseason.
Trade DWill to Dallas, Move him for OJMayo and two first round picks.
Transform this team into a pro level of the Kentucky Wildcats, and then bring in their coach.
I propose that management blow up this team, and transition into a NEW NBA STYLE OF PLAY.
Bring in the youth. After moving DWill, package Hump, Brooks, 3 first round picks and send them to the Kings for DMC and a Sign and Trade with Tyreke Evans
With Multiple Combo Guards, a Dominant Big Man, this team can approach Elite Status with enough Fire Power to Beat the Heat.
PG: Tyreke/ OJ
SG: JoeJohnson/ OJ
SF: G.Wallace/ Teletovic
PF: DMC/ Blache
C: Brook Lopez/ Blache
That Team is young enough to be together for five plus years, athletic enough to run with any team, big enough to play against any front court, and most of all Talented Enough to Win.
Obviously there are other moves this team can make:
DWill to Dallas for OJ, Sign Brandon Jennings, Trade for Big Man, Trade for High Draft Pick
But either way the purpose of this RANT is to make this team competitative, THROW LOGIC OUT THE WINDOW, and have a product that can win.
