No Kyrie, No LeVert, No KD. Consider this a warning to the Lakers, LeBron.

In all seriousness, I can’t believe he “warned” the league from a preseason game.

yep all those folks who think the Nets aren't going to be causing problems in the east are in for a rude awakening. this team is deep at every position and we have penetrating guards, shooters across the board and two rim rolling bigs. and this is without KD.

His face is fractured and he took a direct shot to the face, let's see how tough you are dealing with that.

You'll be quiet as **** by December. Guaranteed.

Fit with Lebron, not to lead the 2nd unit. He's better as a catch & shoot pg, that's where the hype is.

Yup, better than Boston that's for sure.

Shorthanded Nets missing their 3 best guys beat Lakers who had AD+Rondo+LeBron all put up a combined 54 points in decent minutes. Considered a warning?

Although Dinwiddie played out of his mind, I wouldn’t take a game where the 3rd and 4th units decided the outcome too seriously. The Lakers were ahead, controlled pace, and the boards when the substitute teachers and bus drivers were subbed into the game.

Watch the game rather than box scores. All rotational guys were subbed out for the remainder of the game midway through the 3rd and never saw the floor again. At that time, the Lakers were ahead and in control.

Between Irving, Dinwiddie, Harris, Prince, Kurucs, and Musa the Nets are going to be killing it from three this season.

Definitely. They took and made great shots. Very impressive.

If you watched the game you would also know the Nets basically were without Kyrie and Caris from 1st minutes of the game. But you do you...

Oh, I'm well aware. The fact of the matter is no one knows who would've won if Kyrie, Caris, and all regular rotational guys played normal minutes. But I do know the chest-pounding and hot takes after an exhibition game in China is beyond narrow-minded.

So we saw the Nets bench basically keeping it close, then when Lakers went to their bench they lost control. Sounds about right. The big concern for the Lakers this year is their lack of quality depth and how those pieces fit.
