Why do we always have to have a key guy out in winnable games?
Chicago, Houston, Nets and now Nets again. That's not even counting Amare and Shumpert, makes you think just how good this team can be when everybody is healthy. We could seriously be like 22-2 right now. That is insane.
Novak is out. We're going to be completely screwed if Melo is out. Completely.
You'll have Chandler, Felton, Kidd, Brewer and Smith as the ONLY regular rotation guys on a healthy roster with Prigioni, White, Copeland and Thomas filling in. 9 guys.
Melo, Amare, Shumpert, Wallace, Camby, Novak out? This could get real ugly.
Melo needs to man up and play. And him, Chandler, Felton are going to need to play 40 minutes. You can't be relying on James White, Kurt Thomas and even Copeland for any extended period.
Melo needs to get Healthy.
You don't have seem to have much faith in this team's depth. Tonight, is as good as any to test it. A home game against a rival team.
Of course I have faith in the depth. But we're beyond depth at this point. Copeland, Thomas and White will be on injured reserve when this team is on full health. Great depth means you can still prevail with 3 main guys out, not 6.
I don't know if you did this intentionally but I think it's an accurate terminology. It seems like most of these new "fans" are fans of Brooklyn rather than the actual team. Where were all these fans when they were in New Jersey?
I actually did not do that intentionally, but you make a good point. There seem to be fans of the city rather than the team. I highly doubt a solid portion of the fans they have now rooted for the New Jersey Nets.
I am from Jersey though, so all I hear is garbage Nets talk. That's what I meant when I said I hate their fans because they are really annoying around my area. But you do make a good point sir.
Our offense works when Melo is in play. I hope he's ready, Novak is one of those players that capitalize off Melo the most. Without Novak, might have to depend on our interior offense. That's the Nets strength. Let's kick their ***.
