Is 50 the magic number for Brooklyn Nets first year?

Debby Wong-US PRESSWIRE - Presswire

Joe Johnson has always been the most optimistic Net. He was the first to openly say the Nets will be a better team than the Knicks, was the first the first to say the Nets are championship caliber and most recently saying the team's goal was to win at least 50 games.

When asked how many wins he projects for the Nets during their first season in Brooklyn, Deron Williams wasn't shy either. "Over 50, definitely," he told reporters.

Jerry Stackhouse is having his say, too, in veteran speak. "I think when you have guys buy into how we want to play, being unselfish and giving themselves on the defensive end, we’ll live with results.I don’t know what that translates to, whether it’s 50 wins, but I always think 50 wins is a sign of a good team that has a chance to do some damage in the playoffs."

Is that the internal goal that Avery Johnson won't reveal. If so, it would mean a lot. It would guarantee a top four seed in the East, at least, and if they can win 53, it would be a Nets team record, beating the 2001-02 team, the only Nets squad to ever win 50.
