Although it is very early on in the NBA season, Brooklyn Nets fans have every reason to be excited about their team's prospects this season. The Nets have a solid core of young, talented players, to go along with several savvy veterans who are capable of propelling this team into the upper echelon of the NBA Eastern Conference.
The Brooklyn Nets currently have a record of 2-3, but the NBA season is very young. What you have is a group of players still learning how to play with one another, and 5 games is merely the tip of the iceberg for an 82 game season. Look for things to begin to mesh for this team, as there is too much talent and experience for the team to continue on its current trend. Deron Williams, Joe Johnson, and Brook Lopez are all legitimate all stars that still have great years ahead of them.
This trio of players has enough talent to propel any team into the playoffs. However, it is always a good thing to have proven veterans who have won as a part of your team. This is where Paul Pierce, Kevin Garnett, and Jason Terry come in. Terry won a championship with the Dallas Mavericks, and Pierce and Garnett both hoisted the championship trophy with the Celtics. This big game experience will be invaluable for Brooklyn as they make their way into the playoffs.
The Nets finished up the 2012-2013 season at 49-33. However, they were ousted by the Chicago Bulls in the first round of the playoffs. This was a very disappointing ending for a team that had such a productive regular season. The priority for this team in the offseason was to add more seasoned veterans, and there were no better ones available than Terry, Pierce, and Garnett. There is no question that the Nets are looking for these additions to help push them over the edge this season.
