    I think Jokic will be among the top players at the end of the year and he will still be putting up monster numbers. Dude is legit.

    That’s sounds about right but all of those guys are in the mix together and have a legit shot at winning the MVP. The order is arguable though.

    That doesn’t mean anything when it comes to the MVP. Now it might win KD Comeback Player of the Year but not guarantee him MVP.

    Right now, only Jokic could really be said to be above him. Very early, but there’s no reason to think he”ll drop all that much with both Harden and Kyrie. He’s still the best shooter of the three, and he will be more open than ever. Until they address their weaknesses on defense, the team is going to win with scoring.

    100%? The Heat can beat them once Butler starts playing regularly.

    Jokic can play defense if he wasn't built like slow poke Big Country.

    I think a lot of you fail to realize that KD looks like the best player in the world. I guess the MVP convo is a debate, but dude looks like KD of late OKC / GSW

    Only team in the East with a punchers chance and it's strictly because how proficient they are on defense, with that matchup zone.

    Every other team in the East, if the Nets are healthy, and that's a big if. Can not beat the Nets in a 7 game series.

    I would put the caveat of "if unchanged". If Boston can pull a trade for Myles Turner (save your "we don't need a big" takes C's) they can make things really uncomfortable for Brooklyn. If Philly can pull a trade for a wing that can play on ball in the half court they got the size, length, and defense capability to make Brooklyn uncomfortable.

    Yeah, I agree, that's fair. Still got the trade deadline and the buyout deadline, for teams to add pieces. But it goes both ways, Nets have 3 open roster spots and the possibility of a 4th, if they waive TLC's non-guaranteed contract.

    A team can upgrade quite a bit with 4 open roster spots.

    Only so much though. They aren't going to trade into it. Of course the buy-out market isn't coming to fruition yet but who's likely to be out there that will make an impact like that?
