Who to blame


With all of the moves and would-be moves that Nets fans have experienced over the past two years blame has been assigned to a lot of people: Howard for hanging around another year in Orlando, Otis Smith for resisting a trade, Magic management for forcing Smith to resist a trade, King for signing or trading for older players, Proky for not going to enough games...pretty much everything has been thrown out there at some point.

And with all this Dwightmare seeming to be reaching a breaking point I realized I was frustrated at the thought of Brook Lopez as our starting center not because I don't like Brook but because we've had all this talk of Howard. Obviously I'd love Howard on the team regardless of situation, and maybe I'm just venting here, but it's clear who's to blame for all of this: Lebron James.

The problem is that without a big three--and it needs to be a BIG big three--no team can compete with that line-up as long as they're healthy and as long as solid veterans flock to Miami in hopes of nabbing a stress-free ring. I know this is a conversation that's pointless to have because nothing can be done and we're entering year three of this circus, but I'm now realizing the effect this "decision" had: without Dwight, we'll be a playoff team with little chance of being a real title contender.

I'm not whining, I'm just saying it's really incredible how much those three guys deciding to team up has affected the league. I think the NBA is in a really dangerous spot now, and the new CBA may be meant to fix things in the future, but for now it's only making things much worse as it's making it difficult for any other team to structure themselves in a way that will allow them to compete against Miami. I'm hoping things get fixed in the near future, but, frankly, I don't see it happening.
