Twelve months from now, the Brooklyn Nets hope to be coming off the high of having just paraded down funky Flatbush Ave. with the Larry O'Brien trophy in hand and a Russian owner whose bachelorhood has been preserved. At least that's the hope.
The SB Nation NBA family of blogs are running a theme day this morning, in which each team blog was asked: Where will your team be in 12 months from now? This is a tough one. I mean, if you had asked me 12 months ago the photo (above) I used in this piece wouldn't have seemed SO ridiculous. So, I don't know.
I wasn't sure how to approach this topic. I mean, we can talk about the financials, the assets, the draft picks, and so on, in a serious manner, but, we do that often enough on this site. Net Income posts a comprehensive look at future assets on a weekly basis. So, that doesn't seem like fun. It's more redundant than anything.
The other approach was to just make stuff up. Like, "12 months from now Lawrence Frank's best-selling novel 'Million Dollar Reports: How Jason Kidd Turned Me Into the Highest Paid Blogger on the Planet' will have been atop the New York Times' Best-Sellers' list for the 4th straight month." Stuff like that.
Then, I got to thinking, why should I write dumb jokes when, after all, this site is built around its community and we are, for better or worse, run by the inmates. So, I will get things started with a few, but I encourage you all to get involved and make your 12-month predictions. I don't care if their ridiculous or "honest," but I would love to see where our readers think this team will be 12 months from now.
I'll start with two...
- After having had multiple ankle surgeries, Deron Williams will be given...multiple ankles. Three (or four, depending on how you define "ankle"), to be exact. #Science
- Lionel Hollins will be celebrating, having just come off winning the 2014-15 NBA Coach of the Year Award.
Your turn. Have at it, NetsDaily readers!
