    I still think a healthy and whole Bulls team w/ Rose is at least the second best team in the East, but I gotta see how Brooklyn plays first. Still too many questions about them that need to be answered.

    PP and KG were 1 and 2 in Boston. They are 4 and 5 options in Brooklyn. That's a huge upgrade for the Nets. This is nothing like adding KG and Ray to the 2007-2008 lone-star PP Celtics. This is like adding Ginobili and Duncan to Durant, Wesbrook, Ibaka. They have to do less, with less pressure, but they're still mightily skilled and just so experienced.

    Nets deserve Proky after years of Ratner

    on paper they are contenders. But we need to see them play first, and see if that roster holds up health wise. I still don't think they can beat Miami, or OKC for instance though, in a 7 game series.

    If you want the ultimate, you've got to be willing to pay the ultimate price. It's not tragic to die doing what you love.

    On paper they are anyone who denies it is delusional... That team is stacked the nets and clippers are the on paper champions

    Love him or hate him, call him overrated, a punk, chump, and whatever blasphemy you people speak, fact of the matter is there is no denying he's the best of his generation and will go down as a top 5 player ever...what he has done for the NBA is amazing he's the biggest name in basketball all around the world and his chase for number 6 continues! All that matters though to us Laker fans is #17! Lakersnation! #16to17

    My only concern would be the ability of the Nets to play at Miami's pace. You think Lopez, Garnett, Pierce, etc. all can run the floor for 40+ minutes a game? Not a chance. Joe Johnson is the Nets' second youngest star at 32 years old. Terry is 35, Pierce is 35, and KG is 37. I'm just skeptical of them playing at Miami's pace for a 7 game series is all. They'll be legit, and maybe even the 2 seed in the East if they mesh well. It's obvious that making Miami a half-court team is the way to beat them, but I can't see the Nets taking 4 of 7 against the Heat right now.

    We'll see how the season plays out, but right now Miami also clearly has the advantage in bench play. I'm not sure who Brooklyn can bring in to play good minutes against a Miami team besides Terry, and maybe Kirilenko. Blatche had a great year, but could be hit or miss. That could be the difference. I think Brooklyn is right there with the Indiana and Chicago group right under Miami, though.

    Miami can't guard Lopez and Garnett, and pierce plays his best against the Heat

    Well as a Nets fan I actually think we match-up better against the Heat than the Pacers.

    East as of right now:
    Heat
    Pacers/Nets
    Nets/Pacers
    Bulls
    Knicks

    When you have each starter ranked in the top 5 at their position, its hard not to think so. But the reality is the Heat are the heavy favorites to win it all, but its not going to get any easier for them. They could be looking at 7-game series' starting in the second round next season.
