    brooklyn is going to be awesome for a year then it'll be veeeeeeerrrry veeerrrry interesting where it'll go after that.

    of course the celtics get the most Celtics-y player eVAR (huge white 7ft guy with good fundamentals).

    I don't know... if the celtics can still manage to get Josh smith then the team will be super interesting if the Huge White guy sticks around and is actually decent:

    Hmm, a tall white guy from Gonzaga, that's always worked out well....
    I am not of Fran of these bigs that get their points from the outside or from soft inside plays. Whenever I see a 7ft. going glass from 2 feet away, I cringe.

    Larry, I think you pasted the wrong YouTube link. All I see is a WNBA scouting report of some chick with a headband

    ^i'm actually tickled at the new more intense Nets Knicks rivalry. Think about the proximity honey nut cheerios will be from KG the weird fact that the knicks players all resemble younger versions of what the nets have.

    Sixers just got fleeced, Jrue is a steal for NO. I can see Noel being Bynum/Oden 2.0 and this guy already has a head start before even stepping into the league. Jrue hasn't even peaked yet.

    nets looking like a real threat to win the 2008 nba championship.

    :lol: (and my 2nd favorite team is the Nets).

    this 2013-2014 nets team is a 50% chance disaster waiting to happen. Deron Williams is supposedly the alpha of this group, with a Jason Kidd trying to keep him on leash. If Deron could get Jerry Sloan to quit and Avery Johnson get canned I don't think Kidd has any real chance of keeping him in line. Defensively this is a 2013 knicks-like situation where they'll rely on one player to anchor the defense where the other starters are just not equipped to play high level defense.

    if anything this should have been a Phil Jackson coached team - he's the only kind of guy who can handle these kinds of superstar ladened super ego teams. I bet both Jackson and the nets are kicking themselves about the bad timing.

    that said the nets are easily the favorites of the atlantic division and still can maybe rattle lebron enough mentally to make it interesting. I know for certain this nets team will eat carmelo and the knicks alive (mentally) by doing super veteran moves tactics.

    Agree, the only true threat to chemistry is Deron. Pierce and KG are asses, but never to their teammates. Deron on the other hand seems like a total nightmare. But if those two could keep Rondo in line then maybe there's hope.

    The East just got a lot tougher between these guys and the return of healthy Pacer and Bulls teams

    Is Rose going to actually play next season? Of will he cower in the sidelines while his teammates kills themselves on the court once again?

    rose will be a beast again this year and all will be forgotten. the bigger issue is the chicago coach, he's a defensive coaching grandmaster - but works his players too hard minute/effort wise. its seems like the bulls have all had issues with players breaking down in the playoffs under Tom's head coaching.
