Yes, I thought they'd make it to Conference Finals at least.

I never did, especially since they ran into the Heat twice in the playoffs.

well they never had a big man at all. If they had a decent Bigman who is either good at shot blocking, or rebounding, or defense. But they didn't. And i noticed most of the teams that don't have 1 good or great bigman then they lose, teams like the celtics, spurs, lakers, pistons, Rockets, etc. They were still a great team never the less i was pretty much just expected this. I mean they were in the finals but both the teams they faced in the finals, (lakers and spurs) each beat them 4-0. And both of them had a great bigman that caused a huge disadvantage. (Shaq and Duncan)

They had no legitimate big man down lower to help them, the team was unbalanced. VC and RJ were the same type of players, that's why there wasn't much success.

I thought they would've been better, but not great.

They didn't have an inside presence, which is the reason why they couldn't compete against the teams that were better then them.

Don't forget Jason Collins, and Malik Allen, and Mikki Moore. They should have had a dynasty with a low post presence like that

I don't really expect any team with Vince Carter to go deep in the playoffs

They should've just took the chance on Abdur Rahim in '05. That would've at least gave them a possible WCF appearance in the 4 remaining seasons.

They were a hair away from signing him but he failed his physical...I'm kind of glad we landed on the lucky side, because 'Reef has never been the same

If he would of stood healthy though, the Nets would of been instant finalists

i didn't think they would make it that far because their big man was Kristic. They didn't have any1 2 even guard the other teams big men except the likes of Jason Collins. If they traded RJ 4 a big man that would have been good.

Yeah I know man, I remember but he went on to play in the NBA after that so maybe they should've taken the chance is all I'm saying. And he would've done better if he had more PT imo. But yeah nowadays he isn't worth anything which is why he's considering retiring last I heard because of his injuries bugging him.

I never really liked the trio of those three, i always thought they were over rated.

if krstic stayed healthy in 06 i thought this team coulda done alot better. but without a big man no not really.

The nets and Wizards are very similar. Solid at the 1, 2, and 3 but VERY weak at the 4 and 5 with next to little or no depth.

I thought they were going to be better then they were but people over hype some players and Vince was nothing more then a volume scorer. His defense is suspect and he really didn't do too much else when it counted.

Krstic was becoming a 16 and 8 player, but then he got that injury

All the Nets needed was a banger down low and they were set

Well because kristic got an injury actually made him worse. So i think the nets would make the finals if Kristic was still good and they actually got a better big (not mikki moore)

I liked the trio. But the problem imo the last couple of years was the bench. I remember guys like Jacque Vaughn, Lamond Murray, John Thomas, Marc Jackson. IMO the problem with FA was PT. How much PT did you expect behind these 3? Marcus was happy to leave NJ coz of lack of PT, mostly behind Kidd. Toine wasnt the same as he was in college(PT). Boki did do good though. So imo no good FA's ever signed because of lack of PT. We just never had a decent bench or big.

He has Nash. But yea if the Nets lets say had Tyson Chandler he would fit perfectly. He could clean up all their shots and is athletic enough to slam down some alley-oops.

No, I didn't expect much from that particular team. They lacked a true inside scorer. Carter was way too inconsistent as well.

Inside Scorers=RJ and VC

and VC was not way to inconsistent... why dont you watch some nets games before you say that

it was pretty much just them 3 and no bench or other good role players. So no.

they shud've traded either RJ or VC for a good bigman, and they might've accomplished something.

it was a mixture out of a misbalanced roster without a bog and a bad coach, who failed to develop a bench or young talents. but in the beginning i thought tey were going to make more noise

The sound of them together is great but when you really look at it you can see that it wasn't going to work out. I think Kidd, Carter, and (Insert Big Man's Name Here) might've worked out better for them.

With the Former Nets Trio Kidd,Jefferson,Carter I knew they were all talented with J.KIDD (Future HALL OF FAMER) RJ (his great ability similiar to Carter`s)And Mr.VC (Who was god gifted with talent). But they always lacked a few pieces each step or run they made, even if it was a Solid Big Men or shooters to take the pressure off or even Solid Bench Play. The closes The Nets Reach to a title was really only in 2002(When they had a solid big men for that year Nenad Kristic(I have no clue what has happen to him now) that was the only solid point I saw that season). Also this team really didn`t buy in to a team type atmosphere like we realize this year with Boston. But I think there going to find out the hard way they need each other for success. The Nets were more like a run up and down with highflyers and be fancy w/o playing Defense. Now with Kidd Gone to Mavs and RJ gone to the Bucks, that leaves The Carter to step up to be the star and mentor the youngsters. Which I believe he will struggle and underperformed like always and cause trouble in New Jersey.

Kristic got hurt...that year, they were just missing a true center so you could move Kristic to pf so he wouldn't get killed game in game out by guys who were stronger than him.

If they had this squad, but Kidd in his prime, then they might have done better.
I think age just caught up to them. like the Yankees. So much talent but they can't do anything with it.

NO, Becasue they still did not have a good frontcourt. I would have traded One of them for a Big man that was good. then I would give them a shot

Krstic was still a good big man. He averaged around 16 and 8 until he got hurt. I'm interested on what people would have thought of the Nets then if Krstic played the whole season.

With a healthy Kristic, they probably would have done a bit better, but I don't think they could have won a title with Kristic as their front court leader.

All the Nets needed was 2-3 front court players that could play some descent defense, rebound, and finish easy lay ups, but they didn't have that.
