Wow, Nets actually scored 90. Wouldn't have thought that possible during the 1st.

Lol at Rodi getting under that bum’s skin.

The Nets are like a Chinese restaurant. But instead of putting free mints on the front desk, we put draft picks in the bowl.

How they called ejections for either team, I will never understand.

Outmatched top to bottom, but no one expected us to be here. As I've said before and I'll continue to say, Sixers are a talented bunch, but very unlikeable. Great experience for everyone in the organization. What a tremendous year we've had and I'm confident the guys will come into the offseason with a MASSIVE chip on their shoulder. League better watch out next year.

We lost a road playoff series to a much more talented team. we made them earn it... we took one game off of them and nearly a second. for a team whose avg age at starter is 23 years old, the future is very bright

super proud of this team for this series. they fought hard, sometimes the other guy is just better.

on to the offseason. hope we bring everyone back, and add Kawhi to this roster along with 3 rookies

Playoff experience is what we wanted, and we got that.

I have no shame about this season.

Damn we got spanked ! Honestly I stopped watching after that horrible 1st quarter. Still proud of my guys. We were going to lose to either of the top 3 teams in the East, I'm happy we got 1 win , wish we could of got that 2nd one but whatev. Now off to free agent, hope we get a star so we can get all these favorable calls and we can punch guys in the face and nearly kill them with out getting ejected. Must be nice.

We need size....

We need actual shooters if we're going to run this gimmick offense.

This is not the way I wanted to see the NETs go out. It was embarrassing and not an indictment of their season. I posted that their white jerseys were symbolic to waving the white flag after how they started....

Congrats to them and the coaches, won't hide that I am bummed that we aren't drafting in the top 5 in our first yr with our own pick but playoffs are playoffs(and typical luck in our history).

Hope each player works on their flaws with passion and reason this offseason and come back stronger.

Yeah its not like we have the leagues leading 3 point shooter or a PG who set the franchise record for threes made

We were playing a team 10 times more talented, it wasnt going to go 7 with us losing in some dramatic way

Philly beat us(part of) with our own game. Harris and Carroll was colder than the Night King. Leading the league didn't flow into the playoffs did it? Our 3pt shooting was terrible. We have streaky guys and no pure shooters. Joe was supposed to be but if he ain't clicking who else? Crabbe? he's injured, who's next? Dlo's collapse went beyond the 3ball but he's not a deadly shooter, if he improves it ok, but give the guy a million attempts he'll eventually make some, is that what we want?

There's an imbalance there.

Losing is different, not showing up is disappointing and embarassing

id ratherget swept losing all 4 games 200-0 then have a top 5 pick.

Obviously the experience and fun of it is much better but clearly we're not as good as our overachieving record states... having this upcoming class's top 5 pick would be real nice(and not breaking the bank for it).

But can't have both, its one or the other.

I don't think one of the takeaways from this is that we do not need size. We got absolutely mauled.

Now, did Ed Davis going down have something to do with that? Yes. But I still believe we need to invest in the frontcourt this offseason.

it actually isnt... we drastically exceeded expectations by going small

Yes, actually its exactly what this front office wants. and philly beat us at our own game... that can happen when they have the 4 best players in the series and can overcome poor shooting because they have elite players. our cold shooting doesnt look so bad if we have a guy like tobias or butler or kawhi instead of kurucs and graham.

There's an imbalance there.


yeah the imbalance is they have 4 top 25 players... we dont




Losing is different, not showing up is disappointing and embarassing



we showed up big time. took a game from them in philly and gave them their moneys worth in game 4. this team couldnt have played better. any fan not proud of this teams effort is not a real fan

Obviously the experience and fun of it is much better but clearly we're not as good as our overachieving record states... having this upcoming class's top 5 pick would be real nice(and not breaking the bank for it).

its not the expeirence, its about development. this team will be much better off from this run then with a top 5 pick
