Brooklyn Nets 2013 | Where Brooklyn At

The Brooklyn Nets were bounced from the first round of the playoff last season by the undermanned Chicago Bulls. This offseason Brooklyn added some serious pieces to turn the Nets into legitimate title contenders.

Additions: Head Coach Jason Kidd, Kevin Garnett, Paul Pierce, Andrei Kirilenko, Jason Terry, Alan Anderson, Shaun Livingston, Mason Plumlee (No. 22 pick in 2013 draft)

Losses: Gerald Wallace, Kris Humphries, C.J. Watson, MarShon Brooks, Keith Bogans, Jerry Stackhouse, Kris Joseph

When Nets owner Mikail Prokhorov bought the team back in May of 2010 he declared that the Nets would win a champions within 5 years, or he would get married. After this past offseason, it is very clear that the man is committed to that promise (and wants nothing to do with marriage), trading with the Celtics for KG, Paul Pierce and Jason Terry in exchange for several future draft picks, a potential contributor in MarShon Brooks, Gerald Wallace’s horrendous contract, and other odds an ends including Kris Humphries.

Adding Garnett, Pierce, and Terry is like pouring gasoline on the Nets Knicks rivalry, as Pierce and KG have exchange their fair share of trash talk between Carmelo Anthony and the rest of the Knicks over the years. Plus there is the JR Smith elbow to Terry’s head in the playoffs last season. Since the trade there already has been talk going back and forth, including Prohkorov going after Knicks ultra sensitive owner James Dolan. In fact, Dolan called up commissioner David Stern to get Prokhorov to stop picking on him.

Prokhorov and GM Billy King were not satisfied with just the Celtics trade. They also landed fellow Russian Andrew Kirilenko for next to nothing, leading the league to wonder if Kirilenko’s family is held hostage somewhere in Russia. Kirilenko gives Brooklyn a rangy defender who they can throw at the likes of LeBron and Carmelo, and is a greater threat on the offensive end than Gerald Wallace. At any rate, these additions paired with the core of Deron Williams, Joe Johnson, and Brooke Lopez (a combined 35 All-Star appearances) put Brooklyn right up there with the Bulls, Pacers, and the Knicks (?) as a team with the potential to knock off the Miami Heat. This comes at a steep price, with the Nets having a higher luxury tax bill than most teams entire payrolls (around $87 million), but this is chump change to Prokhorov.

The window for Brooklyn to win a championship is small (maybe 2 years) and KG will likely only play around 22 minutes a game during the season to save his legs for a playoff run, which means more Andray Blatche. But the championship experience and toughness of the players added was exactly what the Nets lacked last season. With one of the greatest point guards the league has ever seen holding the clipboard and a former head coach (assistance coach Lawrence Frank) showing him the ropes, these championship aspirations are very real. Kidd will have to learn quickly in order to reach those heights, but he will be equipped with one of the most talented rosters in the NBA, along with one of the deepest benches in the league.

The Brooklyn Nets will be tested immediately in their home opener against Lebron James and the defending champion Heat. Catch the action live with our all-in tickets prices that NEVER include service fees, and check out the rest of the Nets games below as well.
