Lack of TALENT?


After last night's game versus the Rockets I noticed a number of posts declaring that the NETS talent base was nonexistent and/or awful.  How can that be…….we have the second leading assist guy in the league (Deron); the 5th leading rebounder (Hump); and a top 20 scorer in the league (Lopez). How many teams can boast that accomplishment? 

Granted our bench leaves a lot to be desired and our SG/SF positions are less than mediocre yet I thought come this offseason most fans thought we were one or two pieces away from becoming a contender!   HOW CAN WE BE TALENTLESS? Do all winning teams in the NBA have star quality at all 5 positions and a deep bench in order to win and to even compete on a nightly basis????????  Our top 3 should more than make up for them, and at least keep us in contention in each game we play day in and day out, no?  I am sure some posters will say that Deron has been injured and is the reason for the miserable play as of late....and if that is the case why expect anything more from our team while he is out?  Why then feel the need to call our team TALENTLESS?

Will resigning the Hump and acquiring one player from the likes of  MThorton, JR Smith, JGreen, TYoung, or WChandler really make the difference between us being so called talentless and a potential Champion?  Or......and I can only imagine the replies to this point, would letting the Hump go and signing two (a SG and SF) of the above players and a cheap rebounding PF (who can give you at least (8 and 8 on a nightly basis) be a better framework for developing the NETS into a winner in the future.  I, of course, choose the latter option and then recommend that the NETS do everything in their power to persuade the Magic to part with DHoward a year early in a package of Lopez, picks, etc...........

If our fans truley feel that this team is far from contending and lacks quality players, we better re-evaluate our current group of players, including our top three, to ensure we have the right mix going forward.   We have already made some poor contractual decisions (Outlaw and Petro), we can't afford too many more and still keep hope of forming a winner in the near future.
