Tweet of the Day: Magic Johnson Believes in Brooklyn

Nets 2014

Earvin “Magic” Johnson has no reason to praise the Brooklyn Nets being a lifelong Los Angeles Laker, however, he did offer up some kind words to the Nets.

Johnson has, himself, admitted that the Lakers will struggle this year after losing Dwight Howard and Metta World Peace in the offseason. Their losses are compounded by the uncertain future surrounding Kobe Bryant’s Achilles injury.

Johnson might not be that far off saying the Nets have a legitimate shot at a title. With a draft day deal which landed the Nets Paul Pierce, Kevin Garnett and Jason Terry from the Boston Celtics, they’re arguably the deepest team.

With the addition of Pierce, Garnett and Terry the Nets added to their already strong core group of Deron Williams, Brook Lopez and Joe Johnson.

But it’s important not to overlook their bench, which could separate them from other teams. With Terry as sixth man, Andrei Kirilenko, Andray Blatche and Alan Anderson are all legitimate options to bring into the game in crucial moments.

Brooklyn opened up the season in Cleveland against the Cavaliers and suffered a loss at the hands of Kyrie Irving and company. Their second game was at home against the Miami Heat. In what became a close game, Brooklyn came out on top. The final score was 101-100.

    I was 1 analyst who thought Brooklyn Nets were chasing a bunch of retirer’s especially Pierce & Terry (that shouldve retired last year with their performances last year)..But The Heat is still vulnerable to offensive centers & Brook just took advantage of putting a little center on him…Is Kidd a leader of men lets see BC Kidd has hands full with an Argonant/Immature/Argumentive PG DWill (If I was Legendary Coach who name was Jerry Solan I would retire too) ..But the Nets look like a contender on @ESPN NBA but it all comes down to the GOAT LBJ best ever in the NBA feels come June
