    How does Brooklyn avoid being the Lakers?

    Last year i admit, I saw the LA Lakers winning 70 games. Adding Nash and Dwight Howard to a team stacked with kobe, Gasol, MWP and others looked to be un-beatable. And then they had to actually play the games. Playing the games seems to be something very much overlooked on PSD.

    How can Brooklyn avoid the disaster that was the 2012-13 Lakers?

    Can Dwill have an allstar type season and facilitate more than score?

    Will PP be the go to guy or a vital role player?

    Can KG continue to defy Father Time and stay healthy?

    Can Rookie head coach Jason Kidd translate his BBIQ as a player into a coach?

    Will Lopez get enough touches? How about JJ?

    Is this team capable of contending with the Heat Bulls, Knicks, Pacers? or are we going to see the Laker debacle again?

    By winning games. Particularly in May and June.

    Not have 3/5 of the starting line up and 6th and 7th player off the bench out due to injuries for a significant amount if the season.

    By actually being good

    They actually have depth and are less reliant on one or two players, so they aren't gonna be complete busts. But only time will tell if they can be something more than just good or really good.

    I think the Nets need to come out of the gate strong. They can't afford to start out slowly. This was the Lakers downfall IMO. everyone just expected them to mesh right away and it never happened.

    Laker fans can scream injury all they want, but even when healthy they were not a very solid team.

    The difference for Brooklyn might be PP accepting a non star role and buying into the team Philosophy. Garnett has slowed a bit, but his defensive tenacity can help Lopez become better.

    I really am curious about kidd and his ability to jump from player to coach in one season. If anyone could do that, it's Kidd. He was a coach on the floor his entire career.

    Now being a 3rd or 4th option, will JJ earn his paycheck this year?

    They will be entertaining that is for sure.

    I agree. Kidd selling and the players buying into the team system will be the key. One basketball and alot of grizzled veterans who like to shoot can kill you.

    Other teams had similar injury woes and fared better so I don't really count that

    This one still baffles me, the guy was run out of town in NY and hired in the midst of a disaster in LA. I wonder if Kobe wanted him because his hiring seemed confusing.
