This Nets team has a long way to go and I have some serious concerns about this roster.

Eh... IDK about that. They've got shooters and lengthy defenders. Their bench is also good, especially when they're healthy.They actually look pretty dangerous to me.

Capela has embarrassed him tonight, and I just said after the previous game that Allen is probably better than Capela at this point :banghead: :banghead:

I disagree, Hawks should make the playoffs. They spent a bunch of money this off season. They got Bogdanovic, Gallinari, and Rondo along with a 6th pick rookie center. And their young players are getting better. Don't sleep.

Durant is an ultra gifted scorer, but this game also showed a lot of his limitations too.

Always afraid it was going to turn to KD to do it all...


Never felt our squad was the best or championship level as they publicize the **** out of... even with Kenny, the constant 3pt reliance looks stupid with poor shooters...

Atl, out of nowhere to me, looks great with that scheme

What else does he need to provide?

We’re not losing because he wasn’t good enough. We’re losing because the others aren’t good enough.

Nash might need to loosen up the rotation to see who else could fill in for Dinwiddie in the starting line up.

Nets rebounding needs to be better. Keep losing those 50/50 balls, which leads to ATL points.

Are you basing your evaluation of them being mediocre on their performance in previous years?

IMO, they’re clearly a much better and deeper team than they were in years past.

They look like the same guys since last season and before minus Joe & Allen. Our deep bench isn’t looking good so far and neither is Steve right now.

They are, and Gallo isn't even playing tonight. If we had Gallo on our roster, he'd be our 3rd best player right now.

Atlanta has a super easy January schedule. They will be on the #1 spot in the East, at least through February.

Atlanta looks legit, we put the clamps on Trae Young in the second half, and it didn’t matter.

But we also sucked. Definitely could play a lot better. We missed a lot of pretty open shots and Kyrie was off all game. And just really stupid TOs.
