Basically meaning they are the Hawks, Nuggets, or whatever

Going to make the playoffs but inevitable to lose in the 1st or 2nd round

1st rd exit against heat.

They can be a 4-8 seed w/o Dwight, but the Hawks are a good comparison, I can see them making the playoffs but losing in the 1st or 2nd round.

1st round exit, 2nd at best but I doubt it.

Well every team in the east is a treadmill team outside of Miami so I guess they are.

I could see them in the ECF if they click but not close to Miami's level.

Much better than NOT making the playoffs for 6 years. I don't think ANY of you Knicks/Lakers/etc fans understand how much pain our fanbase has been through for 6 years. Well maybe the Knicks before Amare came but still. I couldn't be happier right of this offseason. My signature tells you a little about how much this team will mean to the Nets fan base (Without Dwight)

No doubt about that

Kind of pointless to watch your team tank... I had to go through it in 07-08. you guys have a competitive team, just not championship caliber

I think they will be a 3-5 seed. If thats the case they should be able to win in the first round, and I think they have the fire power to beat anyone in the East other than the Heat.

gotoHcarolina52
07-11-2012, 04:52 PM
Williams
Johnson
Wallace
Humphries
Lopez

That's top 4-5 in the East (with Rose out).

They will be a 6, maybe 7 seed in the east.

The nets w/o D12 are 3 best team in the east.
1-Mia
2-Boston
3-Nets
4A-Pacers
4B-Bulls(bulls may fall if D Rose isn't the same)

True...but it will get to the point where you wont be satisfied with just making the playoffs and so will D-will he's been there before he wants a ring! I still say his best chance at that was with Dallas(also with the re-signing of JET of course) he pretty much has to do it on his own in BK because although he's an awesome role player JJ doesnt have that killer Instinct to get the Job done...yall need a complimentary player to D-will maybe yall can scoop Harden nxt year in FA because OKC will have to choose between him an Ibaka

Such an Expensive team. Definitely need to make it to the Conference Finals with that payroll or they'll be a bust. Similar to Lakers.

Lin/Kidd/Prigioni
Shumpert/Smith
Melo/White
Amar'e/Novak
Chandler/Camby

vs

Deron/Tyshawn Taylor?
JJ/Brooks
Wallace
Teletovic/Jordan Williams
Lopez

As far as I'm concerned the Knicks have a better starting five, bench, and coach than the Nets.

07-11-2012, 05:00 PM
hmm hard to tell but the deron/JJ backcourt is nice +wallace as a def and rebonder as well as humpries who gets the rebounding what lopez is missing sometimes ^^
so not a bad team

you think you went through hell?

I went through Riley flying the coup, Layden trading Nene passing up Amar'e for McKnee, a backcourt of Howard Eisley, Shandon Anderson and picks like Macie Lampe *Idk how to spell that name* Mike Sweetney, Frank Williams and a Frederic Weis, my GM also turned down Andrew Bynum for Charmins Frye.

On top of that I had Layden, Dolan, Isiah, Starbury, Stephen A. Smith can't leave and Zeke's shadow and stench in the garden.

Not a bad team, definitely in the middle of the pack and a playoff team. But not the 3rd seed for sure. I believe with all the additions the Knicks have made this year, they are a better team.

you honestly don't think they are better than Indy or Chicago? It is Deron Williams w/ ammo now. Look at what he made shine in Utah.

TheNumber37
07-11-2012, 05:13 PM
They are not going to have a better record than the Knicks or the Celtics. So they can only be as high as a 5th seed, which means playing the Knicks or Celtics in the 1st round and they can't beat either. Other than that they'd face the Heat or the Pacers in the first round, and maybe they beat Indiana.

akagiredsuns
07-11-2012, 05:14 PM
2nd rd out or ECF out.

WOW! You are giving them way too much credit! ECF? :laugh2: They will be lucky to get out of the 1st round, 2nd round tops. They would likely face the Heat in the 2nd round. Dude please. ECF! :facepalm:

Indy maybe, Chicago with Rose no way. I believe Miami, Boston, New York, and Chicago are all better teams than Brooklyn. Plus Avery Johnson is the coach, he is not the greatest.

If Lopez turns out to be this great player like some Nets fans claim him to be then the Nets will probably be the fifth seed or possibly the fourth seed.

They havent even played together you can all assume but untill they play together, I bet nobody expected Pacers to be the 4th best team in the league this season.

JayStar-8
07-11-2012, 05:42 PM
The Brooklyn Nets have a top 7 player in the nba at the PG, SG, SF, and C positions. They just added the best player in Europe as their PF. The Brooklyn Nets will be very good next year. They can also build a very deep bench with Brooks, Green, Humphries, Evans and vets that come for cheap.

I say anywhere from 2-5. The only team that is clearly better is the Heat, and that can be said for every team in the East. The Nets, Celtics, Pacers, Bulls, and Knicks should battle for the higher seeds.

if we can get a solid defensive big man that can play the 4 or 5 for a backup, re-sign gerald green and ill be happy

07-11-2012, 05:59 PM
Joe Johnson was the #1 guy for the Hawks and consistently led his team to a #4 or #5 seed.

Deron is a top 3 PG

Lopez, Humphries and Wallace are above average for their positions

The most important thing about the makeup of their starting 5 is that they should work well together. You don't have 3 guys that demand the ball. You don't have a black hole. You don't have a glaring defensive liability.

The Nets should be a top 4 seed no problem.

BigBlueCrew
07-11-2012, 06:00 PM

you get to throw out a number and I gotta go thru the trouble of disproving it? no thank you.

Just wondering why if you have a top 7 at all those positions why your fans and your GM would be going crazy to give away Lopez, Hump, and multiple picks for Howard and Orlando's garbage? Seems weird to me

If Lopez can remain healthy and they avoid playing the Miami Heat, I think they can get out of the 1st round.

Joe Johnson was the Hawks 3rd best player and he's been getting worse every year. Also these predicitions are ridiculous especially cause rosters haven't been set yet.

D2theJ
07-11-2012, 06:18 PM
On paper at least, how are the Nets not a top 4 team?

Deron
Johnson
Wallace
Hump?
Lopez

I don't care how much they did or didn't overspend, thats a very very good starting 5 that can compete with any team.


Now the Nets will have a bench that includes Tyshawn Taylor, Brooks, Teletovic, Evans, and possibly Gerald Green. I think the Nets will have a very deep team now and a very good starting 5, I don't see a glaring weakness on their whole roster.
