There are two ways to answer this question. If you are a Brooklyn Nets fan, then it’s likely your answer will be, “well on paper yeah.” For everyone else, the answer should be no, not as long as LeBron James is roaming around the court wearing that headband and throttling opponents. Still, the Nets may be the best team in the Eastern Conference; well at least on paper it would seem so. On NBA draft night this past off-season, Nets GM Billy King pulled off the coup of the summer by acquiring two future hall of famers in Kevin Garnett, and Paul Pierce from the Boston Celtics. The trade helped the Nets upgrade significantly in two positions, small forward and power forward. In Garnett and Pierce, the Nets not only received proven championship pedigree, they also obtained the leadership, steel, and scoring ability they sorely lacked in the NBA play-offs against a Chicago Bulls team that was missing several of their stars.
