Early Previews Promising, Not Wild

New, comments

NBC Sports and HoopsWorld are the first to preview the new and improved Nets.

Presswire

The more serious, more widely circulated season previews won't come for a few weeks, but the first of the lot, from NBC Sports and HoopsWorld, paint a positive but not wildly enthusiastic picture of the Nets 2012-13 season.

NBC Sports puts the Nets win total at 47, which would be in the franchise's top ten for wins, but might not get the Nets better than a fifth seed in the East and a second or third place finish in the Atlantic.

HoopsWorld polls its writers and finds most of them believing the Nets could finish in the top three of the division, with a couple suggesting the Nets could be the most improved team in the league. Of course, they only won 22 games last season.
