I;m not saying they will have the best winning % at the end of the year, what I'm saying is that after the 2021 Finals are complete, I think you may be able to argue that this was the best team ever assembled. Tough to argue since they will have only played a year together and future changes may be made but their potential is scary as fuck.
In college football yes, but unless I'm mistaken, no team has ever won an NBA championship without a top 10 defense, and I don't see where the Nets will finish anywhere near the top 10, I guess we'll see
10 games in, let's take a quick look under the hood:
7-3 albeit an easy schedule. Plugging in 5 new rotation pieces while working different concepts on both ends of the floor. Offensively, they can be fascinating to watch and defensively they are not really game planning for any of these teams, rather working the same scheme, night in night out.
I like Boogie better than him but AD is the perfect partner for LBJ; he's phenomenal but far from one of my favorite players.
I thought I knew when they got together it was done and done. No one knows anything for sure but that was about as sure as it gets if they stayed healthy. But wait, they didn't, they fucking played the entire playoffs w/out their starting 5 and 2. They were down 40% of their starting lineup and still burned down the fucking LG.... like I said they would before the season even started
