Well the Nets have certainly got everyone’s attention so far this year.
First up, Jason Kidd, a completely untried Head Coach but with excellent credentials apart from lack of experience in the role, and a burning desire to bring it home for the Nets, could prove an inspired pick.
Then the trade from the Celtics of Pierce, Garnett and Terry means the Nets now have a team littered with All Stars, 5 of them to be exact.
Everyone sure is taking notice and on paper they are now the strongest team in the Atlantic Division.
What their very expensive starting line-up will actually manage to deliver once the season gets underway is anybody’s guess.
For now let’s say the combination of the still sparkling new stadium Barclays Centre, plus Kidd, plus the new team members equals a lot of speculation about what can be achieved. Of course for NYC as a whole a red hot competition between the Knicks and the Nets would be fantastic. LIKE the idea of a hard fought NYC NBA season.
