Are the Brooklyn Nets the biggest threat to the Boston Celtics to come out of the NBA’s Eastern Conference in the 2023 playoffs? We have seen what happens to the Nets when they are unfamiliar with their teammates, injured, and dealing with off-the-court problems not entirely of their own creation.
But what about a season in which Brooklyn is healthy, connected and cohesive? Could they be the team on the court they have been on paper for so long? If things clicked with the names they have signed to the roster, the Nets could be a very scary squad indeed.
Would that squad be good enough to exact some revenge for Brooklyn’s unceremonious exit at the hands of Boston in the first round of the postseason?
