    I don’t think ppl watch the games. Just highlights. They played great defense against the lakers. Even harden. Everybody switched. They didn’t leave the paint open. Lebron is unstoppable in the paint but they didn’t make it easy for him which is why he settled for mad fade away jumpers. They’ll be just fine

    Or if the nets dont wanna go small with shooters and they rather go big for defence and rebounding Trade.Landry Shamet. Joe harris. And tyler johnson. For Andre Drummond. Cedi osman your giving up shooting but you get a 20/10 guy and cedi osman can shoot and plays with hella energy Line up nets now Irving Harden Durant Larry Nance Andre Drummond Now the bench Spencer Dinwiddie Deandre Jordan Jeff Green Bruce brown Timothe Luwawu cabarrot

    Harden (league top 5 players) joining Durant (league top 5 players) & Kyrie (league top 15 players) is like David Robinson (league top 5 players) joining Malone (league top 5 players) & Stockton (league top 15 players) for 98 Jazz No team in 1998 would be able to stop that, including the Bulls... And nobody will stop Nets, not 76ers, not Clippers, not Lakers....

    Jesus! all you fans, Nets and Laker fans, need to chill about one regular season game. It doesn't matter who was playing or who won, it doesn't mean one team will handle the other in the playoffs. And you can't calculate winners in sports based on who was missing. Ex) KD better than AD, so even with him the nets will still win.... Ex reply) But they were missing dennis and AD, so combined that means the Lakers would win... THIS IS NOT HOW SPORTS WORK! Smfh

I am glad charles was wrong too. This team is the team to beat at this point. All 3 guys healthy its over. It doesn't matter about defense.

    Chuck: What's 2 plus 2? Shaq: Well let's see. If Shaq has 2 titles, then wins 2 more titles, and Chuck teams up with Olajuwon & Drexler, but STILL doesn't win a championship. And Shaq would average 45 & 20 today cuz these new centers are SOFT! Then I tell Chuck to get out my face because he doesn't know what it takes to win a title, how many titles does Shaq have? 4. 4 titles. You have 0 titles. 4 less than me. I'm the best center ever. By far. None of these new guys deserve $200 million. Go win a title and THEN you can ask me what 2 plus 2 is. Ernie: And now! Everybody's favorite game! Who He Play For!? (gameshow music plays.)

    Serious question: Has KD been on two of the most stacked teams of all time? Less serious question: if the answer is yes, does it devalue his rings?

  45. Justus Bowman

    Justus Bowman8 days ago

    With GSW, yes. They just had a 73-9 season. I don't think the Nets were ultra dominant last season to the point that it's anything like 73-9, but to be fair, I didn't pay much attention to them. Maybe they were solid. Right now, yes, they have great players, but this is not KD joining an already all-time team to score easy rings.

    People don’t realize nets are shooting crazy percentages. Most teams shoot plus 45 threes to get the amount of threes they made tonight. That won’t stand in the playoffs. So if they go forward shooting 35 threes they not on a nightly basis going to hit 20 lol. The nets played they best tonight give them credit, but in my opinion it’s not sustainable
