I was just listening to Stephen A. Smith on Mike and Mike and he claims that it's a give-in that if the Nets miss out on D12, Deron is certainly gone to Dallas.
Then I thought about that statement and asked myself who has a better future: The Nets, or Dallas?
Eliminating the 30 million dollars which nobody knows if that will factor into his decision, and the big-city business, I honestly think that the Brooklyn Nets have a better future than Dallas.
MarShon Brooks and Brook Lopez, at 23 years old, are undoubtedly two up and coming stars in the NBA. In 4 or 5 years, I think that a core of Deron, marshon, and Brook surrounded by solid role players could contend in the East.
Dallas has Dirk, at age 33 as their best player who i think is on his way out in 4 or 5 years. Also starting is Vince, obviously not what he used to be and he is aging quickly. They have no rookies or young players showing promise.
I think what it will ultimately come down to how patient Dwill is willing to be, and how much the 30 million and the business opportunities factor into his decision.
Let me know what you think of this.
