Years from now, the Brooklyn Nets will be remembered in the 2013 offseason for constructing one of the best rosters in the NBA—on paper. It's still unclear if this team, which possesses a quality player even at the end of the bench, could live up to expectations and dominate like they should.
Not every quickly-built superteam could compete at the highest level, and sometimes the players on the team just don't work well together. The Miami Heat are a prime example of a superteam that found success shortly after coming together. They've reached the finals in the last three years and secured the championship trophy in the past two years.
The story is different for the Nets. Not only do they have a bunch of players who are out of their primes and could be reduced to role players at any moment, but they'll have a payroll close to $100 million in 2013-14. The expectations are even higher, especially since this team has only a short window to contend for a title.
These are my bold predictions for the Nets and how they will fare in 2013-14.
