Realistic Expectations for New-Look Brooklyn Nets

September 7th, 2013 by Vin Getz Leave a reply »
The Brooklyn Nets have had two new looks in two years. First, there was the new home, new court and new digs—and the resultant first winning record in six years.

This season, it’s a new team and new coach/owner—the greatest assemblage of talent and pedigree in the franchise’s history, one that instantly changes the faces of the Atlantic Division and Eastern Conference races.

Is Brooklyn NBA Finals bound?

It’s obviously not a definite given the fiercest conference competition in several years, but is even thinking “title or bust” or “Finals or bust” realistic or simply passionately hopeful (and respectable) fan expectation?

What about the Atlantic and Eastern crowns? Fair and achievable targets?

Will Kings County be home to the new kings of New York in 2013-14? Will there be a transfer of power that finds Brooklyn “running this city,” as Paul Pierce told ESPN?

Wait a second. Will this new team even work? Ask the 2012-13 Los Angeles Lakers what could happen.
