In 2012, the Nets moved from New Jersey to Brooklyn. The Nets were originally in New York, but the franchise was moved to New Jersey in 1977. In their first season in Brooklyn, the Nets made the playoffs, but they were swept by the Miami Heat in the first round. The Nets have not made it past the second round of the playoffs since they won the NBA championship in 2002.
Kyrie Irving, Kevin Durant, and DeAndre Jordan are just a few of the big names on the Nets right now. The Nets have a lot of firepower, but they’re going to need more than that to win the NBA Championship. They’ll need to have a well-rounded team that can play well together. Let’s take a look at the Nets’ current roster and see if they have what it takes to win it all.
Kyrie Irving was drafted first overall by the Cavs in 2011. He was an All-Star in 2014 and won an NBA championship with Cleveland in 2016. He was traded to the Boston Celtics in 2017 and has been plagued by injuries since. He is a talented scorer and playmaker but has struggled to stay on the court.
The Nets have a decision to make on whether to bring back Kevin Durant for another season.
The two-time NBA Finals MVP is currently sidelined with a Achilles injury that he suffered during the 2019 NBA Finals.
It is unclear when Durant will be healthy enough to return to the court, and there is a chance that he may not be ready for the start of the 2020-21 NBA season.
Even though Durant has been injury-prone over the past few years, he is still one of the best players in the world when healthy.
Durant averaged 32.0 points, 7.4 rebounds and 5.9 assists per game last season while shooting 52.1 percent from the field and 32.9 percent from three-point range.
In his first season with the Nets, Harden is averaging 24.4 points, 11.2 assists and 8.8 rebounds per game. He is shooting 44.4 percent from the field and 35.4 percent from three-point range.
The Nets are definitely a strong contender for the NBA Championship this year. They have a lot of star power on their team, and they have been playing well together. However, there are a few other teams that could give them a run for their money. The Lakers, for example, have been playing great basketball lately.
