I have been taking mental notes on not only on our nets but on the fans here at NetsDaily as well... Here is what I've thought about:
- All of us here have to stop overrating MarShon Brooks. Look I'm not saying he's not awesome, I'm not saying he's going to be awesome, I'm saying we need to stop acting like he's Kobe.. He is no Kobe and I doubt he ever will be. He's a good player and has had an impressive start but we're 4 games in... 4. Maybe if he's doing this nightly and it's March I'll believe he has the talent to be the next Kobe.
- Jordan Farmar's days in a Nets uniform are numbered. I think this is a pretty obvious one but I've been thinking about some scenarios to get rid of him. What about Farmar, James and 1st rounder for Trevor Ariza? Morrow, Farmar two 1sts for Millsap? I don't know if you have any ideas comment.
- We're not a playoff team. Plain and simple. With the roster built as it is now... I don't think we're a playoff team. We may compete for the 8th seed although as long as Damion James is starting and we don't have Brook Lopez we're not a playoff team. We need to trade for a capable 3 if we're making the playoffs. Hence, I mentioned a deal for Trevor Ariza above.
- It's NOT Dwight or Bust. When we have Brook Lopez healthy, if we can trade for a capable 3 and have D-Will healthy that is a playoff team. Thats the first step. Next step would be to trade for another superstar not named Dwight. Josh Smith? Al Jefferson? Gerald Wallace? Danny Granger? Andre Iggy? Not sure but those are all great options.
Let me know what you guys think.
