The Brooklyn Nets are awful. They won’t be in contention for any kind of titles this season except for “worst team in the league”. When you sign Jeremy Lin in the off-season and he’s the reason you’re supposed to get excited this season…..yikes.
If you’re a Brooklyn Nets fan, I hope you enjoy the NBA Draft lottery next April. It will likely be the most exciting part of the upcoming season.
