I could see, at most, 6 teams ahead of Brooklyn in the east this year...philly, Milwaukee, Pacers, Boston, raps, maybe the heat. But even then nets are a lot closer to Boston and Toronto this year than people think and that’s without kd. They could squeeze in a 4th seed with a little luck.

Kyrie has a pretty game but I don't think he's capable of carrying squads. It is what it is, would I trust him with the ball and the game on the line? Hell yeah I would, but I don't trust him to carry average talent around him to 50 wins and 2nd round. I like Levert a lot on the Nets, if he stays injury free he should find his way to 15-18 points a game and more of a winning impact.

Bro, you lost 4 straight and allowed 120-145 points in three of them. Ed Davis does not make you go from a backdoor sweep to a win. You won one close game because Philly had their worst 3-point shooting game of the season IIRC.

Please dude. Kd is gonna be 32 coming off an Achilles's injury. He won't be close to the same player. Your crazy if you think nets are getting a chip with those 2. Even if they make the finals which they won't, clippers would crush them

KD is the best player in the NBA and his injury isn't going to hamper him that much as his game isn't even predicated on his athleticism. KD is arguably the most skilled player the league has ever see plus he tore his left Achilles which is the one he doesn't explode off so his athleticism shouldn't be affected anyway

We have 2 of the 3 best players in the East it's over noone is stopping us when KD gets back

This might be a bold prediction but I think Kyrie is done being a dynamic super star type player I feel he will just finish out his career being a mediocre type star

lol we're winning 50 minimum

Celtics on the other hand are led by a homeless man's version of Kyrie that just got outplayed by Frank Nkitina in the World Cup

Celtics are definitely not going to be making any noise for the next 5 years with Kemba as their best player. Probably won't even sniff 35 wins next season

My bold prediction is Kyrie will retire before his 4-year contract is up. Most likely after year 3, but still. If he for some reason decides to play it out, then he will retire upon its completion. Either way, I think this is last NBA contract.

Nets will be lucky to win 40 games with that flat earth shoot first PG.

I legit forgot the Nets existed. I don't remember, didn't they just trade their best player for someone who will NEVER suit up for them?
