My Five Bold NJ Nets Predictions: 1. A Net will win most improved player of the year. Either Terrence Williams or Anthony Morrow will win most improved player of the year next year. For Terrence, there is a good chance he will earn a starting role and show of his passing, rebounding and defensive abilities, not to mention some scoring. Anthony Morrow posses a shot yet he can work on so much. Defense, creating his own shot, and passing to name a few. If he ends up starting, he too can show some off some serious skill.
2. Brook Lopez and Devin Harris will BOTH be all-stars This is probably the most unlikely, but I truly believe if the Nets have a record 7-10 games above .500 (yes, it’s a stretch) they can both make it. Devin Harris has shown all star and hints of superstar ability, and Brook Lopez has been a dominant center in his first 2 years.
3. The Nets will make a big time blockbuster trade Proky needs this team to be in the playoffs next year, so if we are not so good, yet show potential, I would expect a trade for a superstar or at least all star. These players could be CP3, Deron Williams (highly unlikely), Carmelo Anthony.
4. Avery Johnson will be a top 5 coach of the year candidate It’s no surprise the Nets will be doubted this year. When they do end up with a good record though and are a playoff team, the Nets will most likely have a coach of the year candidate in Johnson.
5. The Nets will be the number 6 seed in the Eastern conference. With a very, very deep East now, this is a long shot, but I think with coaching and management it can be done. We have young players who are athletic and talented and I think we could very easily see the Celts as a first round playoff opponent.
Nets fans, watch these predictions come true and at the end of the season dont say i says didnt say so!!!
