The Brooklyn Nets are a legitimate threat in the Eastern Conference. This much we know.
What we don’t know is just how deep this gritty bunch of veterans can venture into the postseason.
After a bank-breaking blockbuster of a summer, Brooklyn got smacked around early in the year. But then, despite an onslaught of injuries to key players like Brook Lopez, the Nets started clicking.
Since the All-Star break, BKN owns the best record in the East. Much of the team’s success can be attributed to Jason Kidd, a man who went from scapegoat to hero in a matter of months as he came into his own on the sidelines.
But nothing is set in stone. A multitude of factors will determine whether the Nets get bounced in the early rounds or make it as far as the conference finals and beyond.
