This is the progression I saw them capable of making. This is the young and hungry high effort energy team I saw them becoming. Up now on the 76ers by 30 points. Coming off wins against Orlando and Atlanta. Leading the league in Pace of play. Kenny Atkinson and Sean Marks have changed the culture and direction of the Franchise. And where are all the true original Knicks fans who guaranteed they'll make the Playoffs? Nowhere. Enjoy Courtney Lee's contract, Joakim Noah's contract, and no playoffs. #BrooklynGrit

And we have young talent that wasn't there before. Archie Goodwin signed a 2 year deal. 2 first round draft picks upcoming.

And yet we wouldn't trade Porzingis for your entire roster even if you could clone everyone five times over. Settle down.

The Celtics deserve that pick which lead to the Nets getting Garnett and Pierce and being a Playoff team for a few seasons. It's not like Brooklyn didn't make the Playoffs 3 years in a row. We have a great GM and Coach, there's so much more professionalism around the organization. From Lionel Hollins and Billy King the future looks a lot better. We also have a ton of cap space.

The Nets will have their picks again come 2019 and 2020. Right now they're adding talent that is first round worthy and have 2 first round picks coming up. The sum of the teams parts mentality. The Nets play team basketball.

Oh quite the contrary, we're tanking. You see, most teams have these things called draft picks, and when you aren't good, those draft picks give you a chance to add really good young players. I know the concept is foreign to you, since the Nets don't have any picks this century, but do try to keep up with trends that affect real teams.

The Nets REALLY missed Lin.

Acy, Dinwiddie, Goodwin and McDaniels have been great pickups.

The defense has picked up significantly.

But please, calm down.

Nets need a BIG PF and a BIG backup Center. I think Hamilton has to go.

RHF can move to the SF slot, with McDaniels and Harris.

And the Nets DO NOT want nor need Carmelo Anthony

no one worthwhile is signing with the Nets, you have overpay bench players lol.

The Knicks have done absolutely nothing!

Yo -- this isn't a Knicks vs. Nets thing. As I said before, the Knicks are in a bad situation as well, but at least we have our draft pick this year and next, as well as a young, budding talent.

I really feel for the Nets and their fans. King utterly destroyed the team. It all started with resigning that bum Deron. If the Nets had just gone the young scrappy route from the start of their Brooklyn tenure, they would've been better off and had a team that people could root for. Now, hardly anyone wants to go to that ghost town of an arena known as Barclays to watch a team whose two best players (Lin and Lopez) won't even be around once the team finally gets back on track.

Honestly, I feel for Nets fans... but not that much cause my team sucks too.

It's more the general atmosphere than actual ***** in seats. It's oddly quiet in there, and the dark lighting doesn't help. The Nets really need to inject some sort of enthusiasm into their product. They were worried about beating the Knicks when they first moved, so they signed and traded for washed up stars. They should've embraced the lovely underdog persona from the start by this point they would've been on the rise.

How come they didn't win their game tonight like they did a couple of days ago? Because they faced the Magic on a second night of a back to back on the road last time.

Let me see this.... The 3 wins by the nets were the hawks who are just hit or miss anymore... the sixers and whomever else.. They started playing a little better but all the bottom feeder teams have most of their guys out or injured... The nets beat nobody of importance... I am sorry nets fans I am... You were billy kinged... he should have a contract put out on him by net fans for how ****ing ******** he was... He destroyed your organization from about 3 years ago over the next 7 easily.. you quite honestly have no future for the next 5 years at least. The sickening thing is is that they made the celtics have a really nice future themselves though I have little faith in ainge in all honesty as well. Its a shame really.

As a Nets Fan, this is not a good look. The teams that we are beating are trying to improve their draft positions. We do have 2 first round picks. We also have a lot of young talent and some players that have shown some promise. We also have a great culture and Sean Marks, who has done an exceptional job. Let's pump the brakes, the hole that the last GM is 30 feet deep and we are still 2-5 years away from getting out of it.

Lin/Whitehead/Dinwiddie
LeVert/Goodwin
RHJ/McDaniels
xxx/Booker/Nicholson
Brook/xxx/Hamilton

Dinwiddie can go kick a bunch of rocks and that should of been Yogi's spot. We don't have our own pick until 2019 but have a lot of cap space. Both of these picks coming up, must be big men. Brook Lopez has a great chance of being moved next season since he will be an expiring contract as well. Which would probably yield a decent first round pick if we take on some bad contracts. Let's show more signs of light before we begin to gloat, from an objective standpoint, I do agree we are in a much better spot than other franchises. It's debatable whether we are in a better spot than the Knicks, let's see who they draft with their pick first and how he looks before we reassess.

Oh quite the contrary, we're tanking. You see, most teams have these things called draft picks, and when you aren't good, those draft picks give you a chance to add really good young players. I know the concept is foreign to you, since the Nets don't have any picks this century, but do try to keep up with trends that affect real teams.

I'm willing to bet they'll have a dozen or so picks by the time the century is done.

You're just a Philadelphia fan which makes you a hater. The Nets have cap space and smart management. For example finding Archie Goodwin was like a first round pick, plus 2 late picks.

The nets only solid wins are against ATL and the clippers ( injured clippers I believe) What make you think that this nets team is going to drastically improve? Because they won a couple games in the late season? They own late 1st pick and most likely Lopez will be traded before next season is over. They will be lucky to win 25 next year, I don't get what some of you are trying to hype up about them. Oh, and Boston has there pick AGAIN next year

But it was downhill once Lin went down. Almost every win they had was when Lin played. Tells me they need to strengthen the PG position.

It would have been good to have this pick, but its not a huge necessity. If they can stay healthy next year they can fight for 7th-8th. And trade lopez for a pick down the line.

This is what makes this thread laughable to me...fighting for a 7th or 8th playoff spot? So you really think they will jump from 20 wins...to 40-45? there is 0.1% chance of that happen. The .1 being some miracle of KD and other stars signing there. They will have the same team plus a late draft pick or two. Minus perhaps Lopez. I don't see where this playoff team happens next year?

I agree that they play hard and tough, I witnessed it last night in the game. That only gets you so far in the NBA without legit stars. As I stated previous, I think there jump will be to 25 wins, maybe 30, in that range depending on if Lopez gets traded or not.

Plus Nets have two 1st rd picks, young talent developing and over $30 mil in capspace.

Jeremy Lin alone would have to post something like a 25-30 single season VORP for the only change to be him playing for a full season to go from 19 to 40-50 wins.

Current single season best is Westbrook this season with a 12.37.

That means for Lin to be the only major change he has to be more than twice as good as Westbrook was this year.

That ain't happening.

04-11-2017, 02:10 PM
whoa whoa whoa....so because Lin (averages of 14 pts and 5 assist) and a BACKUP pg missed games, you think them being healthy will net them 20-25 more wins? lol with that notion the Celtics should go 82-0 next year because Bradley missed a ton of games plus crowder,horford etc. woooooo 82-0.

Paisan, you saw what the Nets record was with and without Lin.

Nets picked up talent during the season, and will pick up more next season, and will have had a year of playing (and coaching) together.

Marks said from the get-go this season was about development

The Nets are resting 6 of their starters tonight, basically gifting the Bulls a playoff spot.


With one game remaining, the Brooklyn Nets announced they're going to sit six of their players for Wednesday's finale against the Chicago Bulls.The Nets announced Trevor Booker, Jeremy Lin and Brook Lopez will all sit out due to rest, while injuries will sideline Quincy Acy (ankle), Joe Harris (shoulder) and Sean Kilpatrick (hamstring).Brooklyn's decision should come as good news for Chicago, as the Bulls enter the regular season's final night in a three-way fight with Indiana and Miami for the East's final two spots.The path to the playoffs is simple for the Bulls -- if they win, they're in. The Pacers will also head to the postseason with a win of their own at home against the Atlanta Hawks, who locked up fifth place with a Tuesday night win. Should either the Bulls or Pacers lose, Miami can lock up a playoff spot with a Wednesday win over the Washington Wizards. - See more at: http://www.prosportsdaily.com/articles/nets-to-sit-6-against-bulls-who-can-make-playoffs-with-victory-462489.html#sthash.pZjHPhjP.dpuf

Please enlighten us.

Ask and ye shall receive:


Celtics fans are especially arrogant, thinking they will get the #1 pick in the draft this year.

Best on odds at #1


You're sleeping on the progression of Chris McCullough. He's their guy, the other 4 are just depth.

Played 14 games, with 5 MPG.


They gained Trevor Booker, Justin Hamilton, Luis Scola, Anthony Bennett.

All four of them, weren't on the team last year. They're keeping the seat warm at the position, but there is depth there.
Factor in McCullough. That 5 Power Fowards.

Bennett gone. Scola gone. McCullough gone. A total of 2 starts and 73 games out of your "great depth". Booker is a 29 year old JAG. Justin Hamilton is a 3rd guy at best.


They can flip Jeremy Lin and/or Brook Lopez for picks when the time is right.

And they didn't trade one and asked for too much for the other.

This one wasn't you but it's a funny take:

Name one team in the NBA the nets wouldn't trade roster/draft pick position with.
Warriors


Just because you've never heard of Justin Hamilton, doesn't make him trash.

Well he still is.


Brooklyn also picked up a good Guard from Cleveland named Joe Harris.

Who?


And that's only the first 2.5 pages.

Booker and Hamilton have been great for the Nets this year. They picked up those players in a complete scrap heap. I admit I was wrong on McCullough. But they packaged him and Bogdanovic for a 1st so we can take our chances on a new Power Foward. Not so bad. The Nets won games down the stretch that can hurt the Celtics lottery odds, we shall see. The intellectual will always face criticism from the masses and it's declious to me that you are cherry picking to try and make me look bad.

The games you won had no effect on the lottery odds. It's all about where you finish. You all finished last so the Celtics have the best odds at the 1st pick. As long as you finish last your odds are the same whether you have 0 wins or 20 wins.

Why didn't LeBron give me and Wade rings in 2011 and 2014 then if he's just handing them out and doing it by himself. It takes a full team effort to win a championship and Wade was the 2nd best player on those 2 championship teams. I wouldn't expect you to understand what it takes to win though.

A few more for your entertainment:

I can't wait until Caris LeVert starts playing. I want to see him BALL.

Did you see Rondae Hollis Jefferson tonight? His defense was unreal!

If McCullough develops into a regular at PF. That'd be a solid young core right there.

LeVert 8/3/2 in 22 MPG
RHJ 9/6/2 in 23 MPG
McCullough no longer on the team.

Man what a solid core.


You don't think Chris McCullough can be even a BENCH player in this league?
I think he can be become a Starter at PF. He's only 21 years old, he's a kid.

How is that DL doing for him?


Anthony Bennett was the #1 OVR pick just 3 years ago. He's 23.

You actually used that line to prove he was a good signing.


This year the Nets are AVERAGE, last year they were BELOW AVERAGE. That's called improvement.

Where's that 41-41 record for being average?

I'm correct on Caris Levert and RHJ. I'm correct on McCullough. He's still very young and raw. I know Anthony Bennett would bust but I gave him a benefit of the doubt hope for optimism. The Nets would have a better record if Lin was healthy all season long. Still a below average team. Not average yet. But getting there. Year by year.
