This is just as unlikely as Dwyane Wade not missing a game for the rest of his career.

Nets have to figure their roles out first. Brooklyn looks great on paper and I believe we'll be in the ECF against the Heat. However, lets not get carried away and act like age can't get the best of Garnett and Pierce or that Kidd might just stink it up as a coach. There is a lot of new things going on for us in Brooklyn. We can either tank or flourish. Only time will tell.

No one really believes that. I think there are scenarios where the Nets could beat the Heat in a series. They're big up front and they're going to stand a decent chance of at least somewhat containing LeBron with Kirilenko, Pierce, and Garnett.

He is not top 5. CP3, Westbrook, Curry, Rondo, Rose... That s 5.

He didnt show his lockdown D last year.

Allen, Battier, Birdman. All of them would get playing time on any time. BTW, in the playoffs, most teams run 8 men rotation.

So the Heat should be afraid of bunch of players that lost in the 1st round last season. One of the teams literally losing to bench players.

Scary.....

How is the bench a joke, plz explain

Deron is gonna be a top 5 PG if his team stays healthy. You can't really be a top 5 PG when your team is trash. The only player on that team who did work on O was Brook Lopez.

Seriously, it's gotta be the worst thing to be a star PG and be passing to guys who just keep missing. Then you get labeled bad and get labeled a "shoot first PG."

That's how Deron can go through a game and get like 4 assists. Not because he's not passing, but because his team is shooting like 33%. I seriously doubt the Nets will suck this year. A lot of the time, you can say something works "on paper", but the Nets now have nearly every area of offense taken care of. how will they be on D, rebounding? Average to above average, hopefully. But unless dudes start missing shots every time again. I'd even say JJ might start making shots because he won't have to be the first option.

i think KG would be more of a mentor than Brook Lopez if anything. Not sure how much left does he have left in the tank.

Pierce, Johnson, and Deron seems deadly and u gotta be lying if u think otherwise.

Brook Lopez can become a better player playing along side KG.

Nets are soft and play with no heart. They're looking to get it from a geriatric Pierce and KG? Good luck with that.

Nets look better on paper. Lakers showed exactly how useful that was last season.

A lineup of Dwill, JJ, Pierce, KG, and Lopez wouldn't last long against a small Heat lineup with Lebron at the 4. The Nets would get run ragged because this lineup can't punish Miami on the glass.

Lebron James had troubles against Boris Diaw though.

Healthy Deron is head and shoulders above Rose, Curry and Rondo. You could even make an argument that he's better than Westbrook.

Stop pretending like you watched More than 2 Timberwolves games last year.

None of those guys would get time over Kirilenko and Blatche, maybe Terry. Those 3 plus the starting 5 will be their 8 in the playoffs. (Reggie might get some time also)

Way too old and slow. The Heat would demolish them.
