They arent on Heat, pacers, or Bulls levelPacers aren't even on the Nets level pathetic team is pathetic Hibbert and Danny Granger are both overrated.




Shaun Livingston will be the best backup pg in the NBA if he stays healthy you heard it here first. Brooklyn isn't a sleeper team.

The Nets roster is kind of screwball. At PF old KG, 37, backup up by old Reggie Evans, 33. At SF old Pierce, 36, backed up by old Kirilenko, 32. At SG old Joe Johnson 32, backup up by older Jason Terry 36.

You'd think at any spot where you'd have an old vet you'd want a young/energy guy to play the other spot. Good luck with those 4 games in 5 nights.

A healthy Nets squad is much better than Indiana. Indy still has no point guard which will be their downfall once again. The Nets looked downright bad last playoffs against the Bulls but people forget that they had two offensive blackholes starting. They have replaced those blackholes with above-average offensive pieces in Pierce and Garnett. Garnett is a hell of a lot better defender than Reggie Evans as well and then you had Kirilenko off the bench. This team is deep and will be a problem IF they are healthy come playoff time.

10-25-2013, 06:42 AM
I'm a nets fan buy I'd say #1 sleeper team is the Warriors. Nets have a great starting 5 with the whole team capable of shooting(everyone can shoot a 3 except for lopez who can shoot just inside the 3pt line, kg was shooting and making a lot of 3s in training camp) The bench is deep with ak47, blatche, and terry being scorers and defense.

Pacers bench is a friggin sleeper team

Watson, Stephenson, Copeland, Scola, and Mahinmi off the bench + other subs (Orlando Johnson, Solomon Hill) can be a team on their own.

Pacers had no bench scoring last year which is why they lost to the Heat (well majority of the reason)
Now Pacers roster rocking 2 full starting 5s

Roll Pacers

They're not a sleeper, genius. The past couple years they've gone a round deeper each year and their main cast is intact.

If Bynum comes back Cleveland is pretty scary. Wizards lookin' juicy too.

Wouldn't say the nets are a sleeper, didn't the owner end up having to pay like $200M after luxury taxes?

I personally don't see it.

KG will flourish, Terry will continue to suck, Pierce will inevitably have problems adapting to a wing spacer/shooter without any primary scoring capabilities on this team, and I still just straight up would not trust Deron Williams with a championship caliber team.

This team is not short on talent, but you can't FAKE pedigree, which Lopez Williams and JJ do not have.

JJ and DW are arguably two of the most overrated players to ever play their positions.

The nets should change their name to "team luxury tax" Psure their starting lineup is netting like a minimum of 12.5 mill each.

The biggest "sleeper" is the Bulls simply because of Rose. Which makes them hardly a "Sleeper"

If you're a Russell Westbrook fan tell me what he does better than D-Will besides taking more shots as a second option? Rondo,CP3 definitely play better defense I give them that. Rondo and Westbrook are better rebounders.You could name your type 5 nba pg and Deron William statistically would be better than most than them. Joe Johnson isn't overrated he just has the second worst contract in the NBA. He was once a top 5 sg but times have changed and players like James Harden and Paul George have taken over. He's not Kobe he's not Harden he's not Wade but he's the clutchest 4th quarter player in the NBA and there's nothing overrated about that. Bring up the playoffs all you want players have their up and downs but lets not act like it some how diminishes their skills, be grateful Paul Pierce and KG have another chance at a title.


http://www.abload.de/img/michael-jordan-laughib5a5r.gifTell me how many times the Pacers beat the Nets last year? D-Will was out one of those games too.

I was just talking chit, the Nets and Spurs are both indeed old but the Spurs have Pop and a proven system, we will see how Kidd and the Nets not only come out the gate but also deal with the grind.

Harden flails his arm a lot to get calls which is why i hate his game but he's still good. I think it's a good duo they also have Asik and Parsons

Dwight is getting older and more injury prone, is undersized, cant shoot free throws to save his life (so cant play in 4th), has virtually no low post game, cant shoot jumpers, gets the ball stripped/losses the ball all the time, and is constantly whining and complaining.
He's a good defender and an excellent rebounder but that's it.

I agree about Harden. I never said he sucked, just that hes overrated. He still needs at least 1-2 more years before he can lead a team to the Finals

This team is not even top 3 in the West, let alone top 3 in the whole league.

If they play to their full potential, they will win the NBA title. By far the deepest team in the league.

I hate Paul Pierce and KG but don't underestimate their ability to lift everyone around them to play at a higher level. They have championship experience, and they know what it takes to win.

Key players that needs to step up and play at an all-star level are Deron Williams and Brook Lopez.
