Barring anything crazy, the Nets will be 5-6-7, maybe even 8 games below us this season. If Kyrie acts up they are a low 40's team.


I don't know the history on GB beef, and I tend to agree with your assessment, BUT...I'm not 100%. One of my worst fears for this season is that the Nets are surprisingly good.

What if Kyrie is comfortable and happy playing for his hometown squad? What if he actually learned from the chemistry issues in Boston and has developed into a more mature and effective leader? His numbers were solid and he really only faltered in one playoff series. Don't get me wrong, I was frustrated with him during the MIL series, but was that a reflection of alpha playoff kyrie, or an aberration?

They have a decent young core and talent that is likely to improve around him. And they may have better defined roles than the Celts did last year.

Again, I'm with you. I think we are better and hope that the nets struggle. I am certainly rooting against Kyrie having success, although maybe not to the degree of some on the board.

I don't want any of my ex-girlfriends to die...I just hope they get a little fat and are still moderately happy with their new boyfriends but someday realize that they really had it best with me...

but what if it clicks in BK? LIke I said, im not betting on it, but i don't think it's crazy to suggest either, and the thought of it is a little scary.

The Nets could be better, but not 10 games better, which is what the bet was - that the Nets would be 10 games better than the Celtics. Everything would have to go very right for the Nets, while the Celtics would need to suffer another disastrous campaign to finish 10 games behind them.

Honestly of course I want the nets to suck this season and it to blow up in kyrie’s face but if they have some success and everything clicks- so what?

It doesn’t diminish the negative impact he played a role in here last season. It doesn’t change his irritational behavior and mood swings and his horrible playoff performance. It doesn’t change the fact that an as alpha and him wanting to be a leader he failed. Miserably. That’s not going away and he knows that when he looks in the mirror.

It doesn’t make his declaration to stay any less cringeworthy. Time to move on I say. I look at it like a bad break up, initially I’m pissed and resentful but eventually I move on because I know the person I am and that I’ll find someone better in the long run and I’ll look back at this and laugh.

We got kemba we have a great organization and we will be just fine moving forward. Let kyrie have his little success- in the long run at the end of the day we will be just fine and outshine him

The thing with Kyrie, he can't play any better than he did last year. He was outstanding. Issue was chemistry. So, the only way the Nets are getting above 45 is if the rst of the nets raise their level of play.

they can't bank on Kyrie be ing better than he was in boston, he was outstanding.

If it “clicks”, I hope we don’t get quotes from Kyrie about how he learned a lot from the mistakes he made in Boston, he’s been reading a lot about leadership, thinking about how he can make life easier for his teammates on offense and get his scores in the flow of the game, he’s been talking to Kenny Atkinson, and it’s all the same stuff Brad and Danny were telling him, which is kind of funny, but..

They are good, but not better than the Celtics without Durant. They will struggle without KD, and will probably be around 5th-8th seed in a weak east. They won’t contend next year, and once KD returns, it will take a season for him to get back to form.

Having closely followed the Knicks for years with Carmelo Anthony, who Kyrie reminds me of when it comes to effort and team play, I can almost guarantee that Kyrie will give maximum effort on both sides of the ball out of the gate. He will look like a superstar for half the season to prove critics wrong. Then he will revert to the Celtics version of Kyrie.

+1.

Once he realizes he cant make a deep playoff run, I expect him to pack it in and just try to stay healthy for the next year when KD is back. He’ll look like a fringe MVP candidate beforehand, but once he stops playing defense [and he will] his impact stats will plummet.

Yah, I’ve comfortably got the Celtics as 5+ games better than the Nets. People are sleeping on how bad that team is going to be defensively.

I’m guessing their starting 5 is:

Kyrie
Levert
Harris
Prince
Jordan

4 out of those 5 are terrible defenders and I’m guessing they will be a bottom 3 defense and just hemorrhage points.

DaJ was one of the worst C defenders last year. If Allen was anything good, the Nets wouldnt have signed Jordan or let him play in Vegas for a third time. He’s just another overrated help defender who chases blocks.
