and the fact is, IMO as a nets fan, the nets are not built to win a championship. they had the opportunity a couple years and decided that they wanted to make a big splash coming in to brooklyn. that's when they first went after melo so hard. now most of the one-time surplus of #1 picks have been spent as well as the big surplus of cap room they had (most in the NBA not too long ago).
whatever. i just try to make the most of it and enjoy watching a good team in a great new facility. no fan is ever completely satisfied with that, but it is what it is.
