While the Brooklyn Nets have their most promising team in recent years, life on Earth can be unpredictable, and no one knows for certain how the season will go. Organizations are always susceptible to injuries and players becoming malcontent with their roles, and those two factors can deter the most talented teams from championship glory.
The unpredictable could be quite positive, however. Few expected the Nets to acquire Kevin Garnett and Paul Pierce, and even fewer predicted Jason Kidd to become Brooklyn's head coach after retiring from the New York Knicks.
Since we don't know where the future lies, we might as well take a chance and predict what could occur as the season progresses.
