10 Teams In 10 Days 2013-2014: Rank #6
The Nets!? The Nets at #6? Yep. The most overrated team in basketball; the oldest team in basketball. They have a lot of hype coming into the upcoming season after acquiring Kevin Garnett, Paul Pierce, Jason Terry, and Andrei Kirilenko, who are all over 30 years of age.
The Nets have put together a team filled with injured players that once had the potential to be good and they have also added a ton of old, former stars to go along with one of the best PG's in the game, Deron Williams.
Someone has to say it. Joe Johnson is overrated. Not only is he inconsistent and injury-prone, but his numbers have continued to diminish every year for the last 6 seasons. The 32 year old will be a role player at most this season.
The Nets are "supposed" to be the team to compete with the Heat this season in the Eastern Conference, but lets face it, they don't stand a chance. Especially late in the season around playoff time. After playing 82 games, the Nets will be beaten and battered, and will want nothing to do with the Heat.
Overall they are a good team, but can this brittle team stay healthy? I guess we will have to wait and see.
