2011/12 predictions

This post is for us to make predictions regarding next season and we can discuss what we might hope might happen or laugh at other's outlandish claims. I'll start off

Nets back in the play-offs

If Nets win 40+ I could see DWill be voted MVP - having the same impact on the franchise as Jason Kidd did when he was robbed of the MVP by Tim Duncan.

If Lopez has a good offseason and can put a lot of muscle on, keep progressing on his game, learn how to rebound from Hump and be motivated because he'll be playing for a contract extension then with DWill throwing the ball into him I could see Lopez being voted Most Improved Player (partly because his game has fallen off a little this season).

No more fallen angels. this strategy does not work. We have a different GM who has his own ideas and has proved himself this year very able to make great trades for the Nets and in the past with the 76ers able to find quality outside the lottery in the NBA draft.

My concern about King's ability is him handing out far too generous long term contracts which restrict the franchise in the future. I hope Bobby Marks is the voice of reason when it comes to negotiating contracts with free agency. just because Prokhorov has a lot of money doesn't mean it should just be spent on anyone. Free agency should be very different now for the Nets as we have DWill to help recruit and top players will want to play with DWill and also we have Brooklyn to sell.

I don't know yet which free agents the Nets will target but I would imagine given the Russian connection we could see AK47 suit up for us. And while this is incredibly unlikely to happen I would love to sign AK47 to a $10 million one year deal next season renounce his rights and become a major player in 2012 free agency again and then sign AK47 to a minimal multi-year deal. This would mean AK47 still gets paid but in a large up front deal.

I think its still very possible the Nets name disappears before we move to the Barclays Centre. I favour two names. The New York Brooklyn as it should attract fans from throughout NYC but states where the Nets now play. Or if the Nets decide to have only a Brooklyn name then I like Brooklyn Empire.
