NBC Sports: Be Happy With 34 Wins

NBC Sports' Pro Basketball Talk is doing analysis of all 30 NBA teams and projects the Nets will win 34...with the potential for more.  Still, a 22-win improvement over last year "would represent something impressive for the Nets, but sometimes that's not always enough," writes Rob Mahoney.

In the best case scenario, Mahoney writes there will be "substantial improvement that puts New Jersey just outside the Eastern Conference playoff race."  For that happen, he thinks "Avery Johnson will need to change the culture of the team immediately. It's a delicate thing, but the fresh start offered by a new season should do wonders for a squad looking to get as far away from last year as possible."
