Mikhail Prokhorov, the owner of the Brooklyn Nets is ready to do anything to win that title. He showed his ambition during the summer, adding Garnett, Pierce and Terry to his team. He will have to pay a very expansive “luxury tax”, but those arrivals should lead the Nets to the Graal.
Those men have enough experience, talent and motivation to turn Brooklyn into one of the best team ever. Thanks to them, we are able to admire 5 all-stars at the same time on the pitch: Joe Johnson, Deron Williams, Paul Pierce, Brook Lopez and Kevin Garnett.
What’s more, they have one of the strongest bench of the all league: Kirilenko came for 3.2 millions, joining Reggie Evans, Mason Plumlee or Andray Blatche. On the paper, hard to see better team. But this is one the pitch that the games have to be won.
Kidd has been nominated as coach. This is one of the main weakness of the team: he has no experience! This is his first contract in that role! He will have to deal with the big pressure on his shoulders, proving that it was not a mistake.
The adversity is also quite strong: the Heat wants to win the title for the third consecutive time, and can count on Lebron James, the best actual player, whereas the Bulls have Derrick Rose back as the Thunder has Westbrook back…
Odds for Brooklyn are around 10.00… Worth a try!
